When Dr Thielicke writes about Good Friday or Easter or Pentecost, he sees deeply into the mystery, despair and confusion of life today and speaks a truly prophetic message to today's Christians. As he meditates on Christmas, the reader will understand anew how light shines in the darkness of this world. Dr Thielicke preaches on Christ's suffering on the cross, and man's suffering is given meaning. In talking of death he gives encouragement to live with hope.
In this collection of sermons and meditations, Dr Thielicke faces the fearsome questions that plague people today and clearly and persuasively brings the Christian Gospel to bear on each one.
