This collection of fifty-two sermons shows beloved New Testament scholar David Bartlett at his best. Bartlett, who died in 2017, spent his career teaching and mentoring preachers at The University of Chicago Divinity School, Yale Divinity School, Union Presbyterian Seminary, and Columbia Theological Seminary, as well as serving as a pastor in American Baptist churches. Thus, he has generations of friends and former students who knew him for his quick wit, passion for justice, and deep knowledge of the Bible.


 


Those traits show through in these sermons. As Nora Tisdale says in the foreword: “All of the sermons in this volume give witness to David’s passion for preaching that is solidly grounded in the biblical text. Most of them actually begin, as Karl Barth urged preachers to begin, with the biblical text. If they don’t begin there, they always get there fairly quickly. And David’s interpretations of texts often surprise the reader with their freshness and clarity.”


 



David L. Bartlett was the J. Edward and Ruth Cox Lantz Professor Emeritus of Christian Communication at Yale Divinity School, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of New Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary, and an ordained minister of the American Baptist Churches USA. Bartlett had a long career, holding both academic and pastoral positions. As an ordained minister of the American Baptist Churches USA, he served as the Senior Minister for congregations in Minnesota, Illinois, and California. He was also on the faculty at schools such as American Baptist Seminary of the West, Graduate Theological Union; The University of Chicago Divinity School; Divinity School; Union Presbyterian Seminary in Richmond, Virginia; Yale Divinity School; and Columbia Seminary. He was Associate Dean of Academic Affairs at Yale Divinity School for eleven years. At both Yale Divinity School and Columbia Theological Seminary, he was a distinguished faculty member and was honored as professor emeritus. He also served as theologian in residence at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Atlanta. He wrote eighteen books, two of which he coauthored with his wife, Carol.

“The best sermons are live events, but when the preacher is gone, a book of sermons is the next best thing. David Bartlett's voice is alive on these pages, singing with the Spirit and with the mind. Read him to learn how a master conveys the Gospel or read him for your own soul's health. Either way, you join the congregation of those who will never stop being grateful for his humor, his humanity, and his never-ending faith both in God and in us.” –Barbara Brown Taylor, author of An Altar in the World
