Peter J. Gomes has been minister of Harvard University's Memorial Church since 1974, when he was appointed Pusey Minister of the church, and serves as Plummer Professor of Christian Morals. An American Baptist minister, he was named one of America's top preachers by Time magazine.

This is a great book, but then I like anything Peter Gomes has written. I definitely recommend it to all who preach or listen to sermons.Published on March 30, 2013 by Heidi
