Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"This collection of sermons represents Boersma's mature theology. I highly recommend it to all pastors and laity. It is a treasure."
Stanley Hauerwas, Duke Divinity School

"Boersma's performed exegesis in fourteen sermons allows us to think through the challenges of interpretation by way of hands-on immersion. This book will be warmly received by theology students and pastors who want to transcend the inherent limitations of academic biblical studies."
R. R. RenoFirst Things

"This is a remarkable recovery of pre-modern preaching for a truncated, post-modern world. With all the subtle skills of a patristic scholar, Boersma reunites us to 'the communion of the saints' by the fourfold reading of Scripture. This is not 'a collection of sermons' but a challenge to inspire deeper historical perspectives in pastoral preaching in an ahistorical culture."
James M. Houston, Regent College, Vancouver

"Finally, contemporary preaching that honors the church's Scriptures in their Christ-filled breadth and power! Boersma's immersion in patristic faith and Bible reading, joined with his own living encounter with Christ in the Scriptures, has produced sermons that demonstrate the utter relevance of the church fathers' interpretation of the Scriptures. Neither antiquarian nor trendy, they direct and embody the listener's ascent through the sacramental text of Scripture to the person of the heavenly Christ. It is a beautiful and necessary journey for Christian disciples, preachers, and hermeneutical specialists to take."
Ephraim Radner, Wycliffe College, University of Toronto

"Boersma bridges from the church fathers to modern churchgoers with a sure hand and a well-lit vision. The fathers have something to teach us about sermons as means of grace, and Boersma delivers their goods with great homiletical skill and wisdom."
Cornelius Plantinga Jr., Calvin Theological Seminary; author of Reading for Preaching

"In this book of powerfully engaging sermons, Boersma demonstrates how we can preach Jesus from any and every text of the Bible. After reading these pages, you, like me, will know the joy of finding and proclaiming 'the more' that comes from the early church's sacramental understanding of all reality; that Christ is everywhere presented, and most especially in the text we read and preach on the Lord's Day."
Darrell Johnson, Regent College; Centre for Preaching, Carey Theological College

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

I serve in the Saint Benedict Servants of Christ Chair in Ascetical Theology at Nashotah House in Wisconsin—a community of formation marked by the fullness of Anglican faith and practice, Benedictine spirituality, and classical Christian thought and teaching. (If you’re interested in studying at Nashotah House, contact me: I am a Priest in the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA).

Before coming to Nashotah House in 2019, I taught for fourteen years at Regent College in Vancouver, BC and for six years at Trinity Western University in Langley, BC. I also served several years as a pastor in a Reformed church. I grew up in the Netherlands and have been in Canada since 1983.

My interests range across a variety of areas: patristic theology, twentieth-century Catholic thought, and spiritual interpretation of Scripture. In each of these areas, I am driven by a desire to retrieve the ‘sacramental ontology’ of the pre-modern tradition. So, much of my work looks to the past in hopes of recovering a sacramental mindset. I suppose this makes me a ressourcement (retrieval) theologian of sorts. Retrieval of the Great Tradition’s sacramental ontology has been at the heart of almost all my publications over the past ten years or so. Read more about me here:
