1st ed.
The Reverend Professor Peter J. Gomes is widely acclaimed as one of America's greatest preachers and most influential thinkers. For a quarter century at Harvard, Gomes's legendary sermons have mesmerized congregations. Humor and wit -- he quotes from T. S. Eliot and Woody Allen as well as from the Bible -- inform the serious moral content of his sermons, and have made him a sought-after speaker at Harvard and international events, including two presidential inaugurations.

Now, following his groundbreaking work, New York Times bestseller The Good Book, comes Sermons, a collection of forty timely addresses to guide us through the year. Starting with Advent and built around the Christian calendar, these are timeless distillations of Gomes's favorite sermons. With his characteristic eloquence and in an engaging and stimulating manner, he offers readers the tools they need to understand the Bible and the joy and inspiration it can bring to everyday life.
