Theologically informed and richly instructive, Preaching the Luminous Word is a collection of fifty-one sermons and five homiletic essays from noted preacher and biblical scholar Ellen F. Davis. Featuring a brief preface that sets each message in its geographic and liturgical context and highlights themes, the sermons are arranged in canonical order and cover a scope of texts—Torah, Prophets, Writings, Gospels, Epistles, and Revelation. The sermons are complemented by essays on various aspects of biblical interpretation for preaching.
At once accessible, theologically informed, and rhetorically rich, this volume will engage preachers, teachers, seminarians, church leaders, and serious lay readers.

"Ellen Davis is the rare academica brilliant academicwho takes seriously the art, craft, and calling of preaching. I am grateful that this book is in the world, in a moment in which the world so urgently needs the discerning, luminous word."
author of The Crucifixion: Understanding the Death of Jesus Christ
"Davis's biblical interpretations have been widely admired for decades, but this volume exceeds even those that have gone before in its usefulness for preachers. If preachers pay attention to these essays, they will be shaken to the foundations, but when their foundation is the true Word of the living God, theyand their congregationswill be renewed from the Source. This book deserves the much-overused word 'prophetic' and should be close at hand on every preacher's shelf."
coauthor of Eucharistic Prayers and Shaping the Prayers of the People
"Ellen Davis's preaching has a fierce intimacy, a deft poetry, a profound playfulness, and a rigorous passion. Just like the Bible. And just like God."
