Phillips Brooks, the Episcopal bishop of Boston near the end of the 19th century, defined preaching as "the communication of truth by man to men. It has two essential elements, truth and personality ... preaching is the bringing of truth through personality."

Sermons on the Gospel of Matthew
by Barbara Brown Taylor / Paperback / August 2004

This wonderful collection of sermons by renowned preacher, author, and speaker Barbara Brown Taylor is based on the Gospel of Matthew. Each of the fifteen sermons, three of them appearing here for the first time in print, is based on a reading from Matthew, including Exceeding Righteousness (Matthew 5:17-20), The Problem with Miracles (14:13-21), Family Fights (18:15-20), Once More from the Heart (18:21-35), Beginning at the End (20:1-16), and On the Clouds of Heaven (24:29-44)

Barbara Brown Taylor was selected by Baylor University as one of the twelve most effective preachers in the English language, based upon a national survey.

Home By Home By Another WayAnother Way
by Barbara Brown Taylor / paperback / Jun 1999

In this selection of sermons, Barbara Brown Taylor, an Episcopal Priest, walks us through the church year, from the expectancy of Advent to the fires of Pentecost and beyond. Her themes arise from the particular feasts or fasts, as well as from the perennial questions of faith: doubt, grace, anger, and jubilation. These sermons are models of good preaching, but more than that they are simply great stories well told.  

The The Consolations of GodConsolations of God:
Great Sermons of Phillips Brooks
by Phillips Brooks, Ellen Wilbur, Editor / Paperback / September 2003

Phillips Brooks (1835&endash;1893), Episcopal priest and bishop, best known today as the author of the Christmas carol "O Little Town of Bethlehem," has been called the greatest American preacher of the nineteenth century. Yet his magnificent sermons, which brought standing-room-only crowds to Trinity Church in Boston, have long been out of print. "The Consolations of God" gathers twelve of Brooks's best sermons, allowing a new generation of readers to be touched by the man who, says Peter Gomes in the book's foreword, "was always destined to be our contemporary."

Knock Knock at Midnightat Midnight:
Inspiration from the Great Sermons of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr
Clayborne Carson, Peter Holloran, Editors
Audiobook (Running time: 13.25 hours, 8 CDs) *
December 2005

These 11 historic sermons--some complete recordings of entire addresses, others reconstructed from various church services--make plain why Martin Luther King Jr. considered his "first calling and greatest commitment" to be a preacher of the gospel. As an orator he is second to none, drawing his audience in with an urgency that resonates through every soaring cadence of his familiar, powerful voice. Using insights from psychology, philosophy, and the Bible, he appeals to the heads as well as the hearts of his congregations, explaining that personal and social change can only be effected by adopting a morality of love in service of God and humankind. - Amazon.com

Also available in hardcover and paperback and audio cassette

Read print excerpt Rediscovering Lost Values

Also by Carson are A Call to Conscience: The Landmark Speeches of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr. Further recommend are these DVDs: Citizen King ~ Martin Luther King and Martin Luther King Jr. - I Have a Dream

Undoing of DeathThe Undoing of Death : Sermons for Holy Week and Easter
by Fleming Rutledge / Hardcover / Feb 2002 *

This outstanding sermon collection by Rutledge reflects 26 years of preaching during Holy Week and Easter. Some of the sermons have been revised and reworked for publication; all are in print here for the first time. The collection focuses more heavily on Holy Week than on Easter Sunday itself, which is represented by just two sermons. Rutledge is to be commended for including sermons for the oft-neglected Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of Holy Week, as well as messages for Eastertide, the "Great Fifty Days" that follow Christ's resurrection

The Bible and The New York TimesThe Bible and the New York Times
by Fleming Rutledge / paperback / Jul 1999

The Bible and the New York Times is a collection of sermons by Fleming Rutledge, an Episcopal priest with an exceptional ability to engage the shifting stories reported in the contemporary media without losing her firm footing in scripture. Her sermons have a quietly urgent style that comes from her fearless interest in some of the most frightening stories in the world.

SermonsSermons: Biblical Wisdom for Daily Living
by Peter J. Gomes / paperback / Apr 1999 *

Best-selling author and religion professor Gomes (The Good Book: Reading the Bible with Mind and Heart) here collects 40 of his sermons, preached over the years to the congregation at First Memorial Church, Harvard University. These sermons address a variety of themes that revolve around the liturgical seasons, but Gomes's characteristic wit and unwavering ability to get to the heart of whatever matters with honesty, clarity, and eloquence will appeal to a wider audience of nonchurch goers. A man of formidable intelligence and political influence, Gomes indicates by these sermons that he is willing to stake everything on the mystery that is central to Christian faith: the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, which forms the bedrock of Gomes's own biblical understanding. A highly readable book.
Also available in hardcover.

Are There Horses in Heaven?
And Other Thoughts:
Sermons Preached in the Shadyside Presbyterian Church Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
by F. Morgan Roberts / hardcover / Aug 1996 *

"Reading his sermons will never be as good as hearing him preach them or hearing him chuckle at his own foibles. But they will give anyone who takes the time to read them a glimpse of the mystery and majesty of God's love in Jesus Christ." - Dr. John Mulder, President, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky.

Tongues of Angels, Tongues of Men:
A Book of Sermons
John F. Thornton and Katharine Washburn, Editors / hardcover / 0ct 1999 *

Tongues of Angels, Tongues of Men gathers many of the most vibrant public expressions of Christian and Jewish truths ever made by some of the most compelling personalities in the history of these religions. From Jesus' Sermon on the Mount to John Donne's "Death's Duel" to Martin Luther King's "The Dimensions of a Complete Life," Tongues of Angels, Tongues of Men dazzles readers with timeless wisdom, shaped by its speakers' distinct voices. More than 80 sermons by Christians and Jews, each preceded by a brief biographical sketch of the preacher, are gathered in an elegant volume that will serve as a devotional for laypeople, an inspirational resource for pastors, and a historical reference for any reader interested in the development of Jewish and Christian communication since the time of Jesus. --Michael Joseph Gross
