Product Description

In this unique collection of sermons addressed to both laypeople and clergy, Ralph C. Wood seeks to make the gospel relevant to our most difficult moral and theological questions. By doing so, Wood hopes to enable all Christians to live more faithfully according to the doctrines and practices of Christ's church.Rather than asking how we can arrive in heaven, these sermons testify to the Kingdom of God not only as our post-earthly hope, but also as our present-world existence. Each sermon wrestles with matters central to living as a Christian in modern culture, including the scandal of the gospel, the centrality of suffering and service, war, abortion, injustice, the abuse of the elderly, and the reality of death.

Publisher Description

In this unique collection of sermons addressed to both laypeople and clergy, Ralph C. Wood seeks to proclaim the gospel as it deals with our most difficult moral and theological questions in order to enable us all to live more faithfully according to the doctrines and practices of Christ’s church.

Rather than focused on getting to heaven, these sermons are structured to testify to the kingdom of God not only as our post-earthly hope but also as our present-world existence. Each sermon wrestles with matters central to living as a Christian in modern culture, including the scandal of the gospel, the centrality of suffering and service, war, abortion, racial injustice, the abuse of the elderly, and the reality of death.

Wood grapples with these issues in a singular way, informed by a widerange of reading not only in Christian theology but also in both classical and contemporary literature and culture. By rooting his homilies in specific times, places, and quandaries, he demonstrates that Christianity remains a vigorous set of doctrines and morals precisely as our preaching and ethics give shape to our worship and living.
