Barbara Brown Taylor has a unique way of providing insight into Bible versus and Bible stories we've known since childhood, sitting on the 2nd pew by the organ. She will take difficult versus, like when Jesus says you must deny your family to follow, and share insight about them in a very humble and honest way. One of my favorites is her sharing her experience of spending time in the desert - and just how hard it is to be focused on God. I just finished reading this book of sermons, and have started again at the beginning - there is so much to learn and so much to listen to in her sermons.
I have thoroughly enjoyed Barbara Brown Taylor's books and this was the 3rd of her books I have read. Her style is so down to Earth, but yet she exposes everyday things for the creation of God that they are. As an Episcopalian myself I delight in how she demonstrates the sometimes quirky Christians we can be and still her lessons are for all Christians, no matter the denomination. Highly recommend!
I have only recently discovered Barbara Taylor and her writings and I cannot get enough of her common sense, wisdom, clarity in writing, etc. etc. I am delighted to have found her messages..makes me think and be aware of the world around me in a heavenly way.
I love Barbara Brown Taylor's books...and especially enjoy reading her sermons as a part of my daily devotions. She is so down to earth, and expresses spiritual issues in memorable, visual, today concepts.
