Albert Butzer believes that "sermons should speak to the real and immediate lives of the listeners and be grounded in the everyday events of their lives." This collection of sermons for Lent and Easter based on gospel texts definitely achieved that goal: Butzer's messages consistently and creatively deliver a ringing proclamation of the good news. They are outstanding examples of the homiletical art that bring together several elements of the classic sermon: biblical text, theological tradition, life of the world, life and experience of a particular congregation, and faith and experience of the preacher. Albert G. Butzer III has been pastor of Providence Presbyterian Church in Fairfax, Virginia since 1994.
