Sermon collections are tricky. A good sermon is made for the ear, no the eye. What works in the context of a worship service often does not translate to the written page. Far more than an essay, or even a lecture, a sermon is a dialogue, incomplete without the unspoken response of a congregation, especially one who knows its minister well. This collection is different for one very special reason- Tony Perrino himself. His personality, an thus his truth, shines through. One doesn't read these sermons so much as hear them. Without ever obtruding himself, Tony is present: his gentle strength; his quiet fervor; his unprepossessing authority. Filled with felt thought and thought-out feeling, these sermons are sufficiently multi-dimensional to fulfill Brooks' dictum. Both heart and mind are engaged here. As a companion to Tony's fine meditation manual, this collection is a wonderful addition to any liberal religious library. True to the spirit of his entire ministry, it is a real, and very special, gift. -F. Forrester Church
