Editorial Reviews

Christian Ministry
An impressive collection of three-dozen sermons from 20th-century preachers including Frederick Buechner, Barbara Brown Taylor, Elizabeth Achtemeier, Karl Barth, JC.S. Lewis, William Willimon, Harry Emerson Fosdick, Paul Tillich, William Sloane Coffin, Lewis Smedes and J�rgen Moltmann. Reading one of these sermons a day should greatly inspire your preaching.
Christianity Today
"Here is a collection of sermons so delightful, so engrossing, so beautifully crafted, so moving that it begs to be savored in thoughtful bits and consumed in craving gulps.... Rarely does a book so concretely go about its business with such a clear focus and then deliver exactly what it promises."
Navy Chaplain
"Looking for a good collection of sermons? Who can lose with a collection such as A Chorus of Witnesses edited by Tom Long and Cornelius Plantinga?... An exceptional collection of some of the best sermons ever preached, as well as some of the best sermons that ever needed to be preached. It is a "must have" for every preacher's library and an invaluable tool for devotional use."
Reformed Review
"Anyone who has occasion to preach, or who enjoys hearing or reading a finely crafted message will take delight in this book.... Those who preach will find themselves returning to these pages for inspiration, encouragement, refreshment, or to be reminded of the value of a well-crafted message."
