Publisher's Description

Countless people have said of Walt Gerber that it was from him they "first heard grace preached." Walt, a popular pastor in the heart of Silicon Valley, loved Jesus, prayer, people, and the Bible, and this shows in every one of these fifty sermons, prayerfully chosen from among the hundreds he gave.

Walt was a Silicon Valley titan of the most unassuming kind. He had no website. No blog. No Twitter. No social media of any kind. He never published a book or developed a technology. But as senior pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church for twenty-eight years, Walt was a titan of grace. He had a way of speaking, like no one else, directly to listeners' hearts through his sermons. Caring, relational, and compassionate, Walt was more concerned about "the ultimate heresy of making God boring," as he put it, than with church growth. But the church did grow under him-from 2000 members in 1974 to 5500 members in 2002. People flocked to hear Walt present his God as he knew him . . . full of love, grace, kindness, and fun.

For each sermon, relevant Scriptures and discussion questions are provided, making this book ideal for personal devotions or small-group study.

Author Bio

Walt Gerber began his ministry on the heels of a divorce, in an era when that was a likely disqualifier. He suffered from panic attacks triggered by public speaking, and had his share of physical ailments, as well as a constant struggle with anxiety. Walt attended Occidental College for his undergraduate degree and continued his graduate studies at Princeton Theological Seminary, San Francisco Theological Seminary, and the University of Southern California. Before arriving as senior pastor at Menlo Park Presbyterian Church in Northern California, he spent fifteen combined years in ministry in San Marino, Redondo Beach, and Malibu. He considered himself a beach bum through and through. His hobbies included cars, motorcycles, dogs, and exercise. Time with family and friends was always a priority. Sharing God's grace was Walt's passion.
