In this unique collection of sermons addressed to both laypeople and clergy, Ralph C. Wood seeks to make the gospel relevant to our most difficult moral and theological questions. By doing so, Wood hopes to enable all Christians to live more faithfully according to the doctrines and practices of Christ's church.Rather than asking how we can arrive in heaven, these sermons testify to the Kingdom of God not only as our post-earthly hope, but also as our present-world existence. Each sermon wrestles with matters central to living as a Christian in modern culture, including the scandal of the gospel, the centrality of suffering and service, war, abortion, injustice, the abuse of the elderly, and the reality of death.
Testifies to the presence of God as both our post-earthly hope and our present-world existence. / These thought-provoking sermons by Ralph Wood, a layman who has taught religion and literature for many years, seek to till new soil in the fertile field of Christian faith and life. They draw on a wide range of reading not only in Christian theology but also in both classical and contemporary literature and culture. And they also mine Woods own professorial and personal experience in dealing with both the old and the young amid "the chances and changes of life." / Wood squarely engages the American "culture of death" by wrestling with such vexing questions as sexuality and marriage, war and peace, abortion, racial injustice, and abuse of the elderly. By grounding his homilies in specific times, places, and quandaries, Wood demonstrates that Christianity remains a vigorous set of doctrines and morals precisely as preaching and ethics give shape to our worship and living in the here and now. Focusing not so much on our "getting to heaven," Wood's Preaching and Professing shows concretely how the gospel "gets heaven into us."
