“. . . [Gomes] is . . . the good and well-spoken uncle whose advice is always worth hearing.” (Library Journal)

“This book might be your best bet for gaining a heart of wisdom, à la Peter Gomes.” (Christian Century)

Format: Hardcover
I love to listen to and read sermons. I am moved not only by the language, but also by the ideas. I love to listen to a person who has struggled with a sustained effort to make words express ideas.
Peter Gomes brings clarity of thought to his profession. While I do not agree with everything he says, I appreciate his eloquence and insights. His words alternatively brace and sooth. He is provocative; he is comforting.
His sermons are a pleasant diversion to my daily struggles.

11 of 11 people found the following review helpful By James Ayube on November 29, 2004
Format: Paperback
This is the third book I've read by Peter Gomes, and as usual he provides his usual dose of wit and wisdom. However, since religion is such a sensitive topic, one needs an open mind to get the most from his sermons. I don't agree with everything he says, but at the very least, he challenges you to think in different ways about life, about God and about religion. But he is not hard to read or understand -- often, after reading something he wrote, I've thought, "gee, how obvious," although while it may have seemed obvious, I hadn't thought of it before! Reading his books has helped me get more in tune with my spiritual and religious side.

He is a professor in religion who also is gay and a pastor. Well educated and makes a great point. His greatest point is saved by grace and not work and that extends to all.
