Why are the sermons of Marilyn Adams so great? First, she has the most extraordinary intimacy with Holy Scripture; it's truly a living, breathing body of work in her experience. Second, as a human being she remains passionately in the given moment; her acute awareness of raw life all around her is fresh and surprising. Third, Marilyn Adams belongs to an authentic, queer, visionary breed; she is a prophet.
The Rev. Canon Malcolm Boyd author of "Are You Running with Me Jesus?"

This collection of sermons offers the reader a series of reflections that are both profound and intimately playful. The reflections are oriented toward justice in the public sphere, yet remain focused on Christian personal growth and transformation.

Known internationally for her academic and historial writings, in this work, Professor Adams brings her powerful theological and philosophical conclusions to bear on the practical and pastoral questions of contemporary Christian life. Mostly preached in various parishes in Los Angeles, California, where Adams is in residence at St. Mary in the Palms, these sermons seek to integrate difficult issues?such as the plurality of religions, questions of sexuality, race, and inequality?with the daily life of the Christian community.Marilyn McCord Adams
