9780060000783: Strength for the Journey : Biblical Wisdom for Daily Living

Peter J. Gomes is widely acclaimed as one of America's greatest preachers. In Strength for the Journey, Gomes offers a new collection of his most important sermons, which draw on the wisdom of the Bible to guide us through the year and enrich our daily lives.

Sermons have always played a central role in American culture, serving as beacons of hope in trying times and illuminating the path ahead when the prevailing wisdom grows dim. Gomes is one of the few remaining great practitioners of this lost art. Strength for the Journey features twenty-two of his stirring addresses dealing with themes of daily life such as commitment, death, happiness, innocence, patriotism, and struggle; and eighteen enduring sermons focusing on the seasons of the liturgical year. Never one to shy away from controversy, Gomes preaches sermons such as "In Praise of Harlots,""Plenty Good Room,"and "Patriotism Is Not Enough."Publishers Weekly called Gomes's historic "Outer Turmoil, Inner Strength"sermon, delivered just days after the tragic events of September 11, "one of the most eloquent, sensitive Christian responses to the attack."

Gomes's latest collection is sure to satisfy his loyal fans as well as to attract new ones. With his characteristic eloquence and compassion, Gomes offers us the spiritual resources we need to bring joy and inspiration to everyday life.
