This is a collection of thirty-one beautifully written and wonderfully moving sermon-length reflections that read more like stories from Lake Wobegone. Wood weaves together history, legends, and references to popular culture seamlessly with biblical passages to create reflections that are both inspirational and educational.

"A modern Scheherezade, this gifted United Methodist preacher unspools a series of compelling stroies as he seeks to draw out the presence of God in the historical, the legendary, the ordinary, and the bizarre events of human life. . . . This debut collection has the potential to be a book for all seasons." --Publisher's Weekly

Lawrence Wood is senior pastor at First Congregational Church of Darien in Darien, Connecticut. He previously served for several years as a pastor in Michigan. He is the author of One Hundred Tons of Ice and Other Gospel Stories and occasional pieces for The Christian Century.

Homiletic (Vol. 30, No. 2, Winter 2005) "In the venacular of 'called to preach' one could suggest that Lawrence Wood received some kind of divine 'call to write'....When I finished reading One Hundred Tons of Ice and Other Gospel Stories, I felt like a better preacher simply because I had spent time with a master storytelling preacher named Lawrence Wood." --David N. Mosser
Church Educator (January 2006) "One hundred tons of ice is engaging reading by the fire or at the seashore."
