"I am convinced nothing is more important for the recovery of preaching as a central act of the church than that those who preach trust that God is going to show up when the Word is rightly proclaimed. Too often those who preach fear those to whom they preach when in fact we ought to fear God. If God is rightly expected to show up, if God is rightly feared, then those who preach and those who hear will understand no explanation is required."--From the Introduction

• Sermons from one of the country’s best-known theologians

• 17 sermons, from “Saints” and “Letting Go,” to “Recognizing Jesus/Seeing
Salvation” and “Clothe Your Ministers in Righteousness”

• Two bonus presentations on “Leadership” and “An Open Letter to Christians
Beginning College” in the appendix
