Sermons 1824 1843 Sermons On Biblical History Sin And Justification The Christian Way Of Life And Biblical Theology. From 1824 to 1843 Newman was an active clergyman of the Church of England, entering the pulpit about 1,270 times during that period. Newman published 217 of the sermons which he wrote during those years; a further 246 sermons survive in manuscript form in the Archives of Birmingham Oratory--some only as fragments but the majority as full texts. This is the second of a projected five-volume edition of Newman's previously unpublished sermons. The texts have been transcribed accurately and clearly for ease of reading, with sufficient editorial comment to clarify their theological content and historical background.

Good News For The Hard Of Hearing. Jesus spoke to people whose "hearts have grown dull, and their ears hard of hearing" -- like today's churchgoers who think they know what the preacher is going to say before the sermon begins. These sermons use parable and paradox, narrative and humor, imagination and solid biblical scholarship to tell the good news people don't expect to hear. "I hear best what I want to hear and I shut out the things I don't want to hear. I hear, "Great sermon, Pastor!" better than I hear, "I notice your hair is getting thinner..". I have no problem at all hearing the good news that I am forgiven. I have a really hard time hearing a parable that tells me I will suffer the tortures of the damned until I forgive. These sermons have been influenced by preachers who have gotten through to me despite my spiritual hearing impairment. Craddock, Buechner, and Lowry... David Buttrick... Harry Emerson Fosdick..." (from author's Preface) Sermons in this book are based on lections for the middle third of the season after Pentecost. Sermon titles include: Prayer and Compassion Fatigue -- Matthew 14:13-21 Love Without Limits -- Matthew 15:10-28 Good News: Life Is Not Fair -- Matthew 20:1-16 Why Do We Ignore Warning Signs? -- Matthew 21:33-46 Roger Talbott is pastor of North Olmsted United Methodist Church in North Olmsted, Ohio. He has served congregations in Ohio and western New York. He earned his M.Div. degree from Colgate Rochester Divinity School and is currently enrolled in the D.Min. program at Ecumenical Theological Seminary in Detroit, Michigan.
