Gerald Kennedy, now the Bishop of the Portland area of the Methodist Church, is one of the most popular preachers in America today, and this volume of his sermons gives mple evidence of the basis of this popularity. Gerald Kennedy is up-to-date, his messages deal with the real issues of modern life. Furthermore they are couched in a style that is fresh and arresting with illustrations and turns of phraseology which stay by the reader. More important still, Gerald Kennedy's message deals with a vital religious faith. There are no essays on ethics or disquisitions on the philosophy of religion. He is dealing in all of these sermons with the paradoxes of the Christian faith, such as ""Logic and Life"", ""Sin and Grace"", ""Judgment and Forgiveness"", ""Personal and Social"", ""Weakness and Strength"", ""Tension and Peace."" This is great preaching and it should be one of the best sellers among books of sermons.
