9780060842482: Secrets in the Dark: A Life in Sermons

Frederick Buechner has long been a kindred spirit to those who find elements of doubt as constant companions on their journey of faith. He is a passionate writer and preacher who can alter lives with a simple phrase. Buechner's words, both written and spoken, have the power to revolutionize and revitalize belief and faith. He reveals the presence of God in the midst of daily life. He faces and embraces difficult questions and doubt as essential components of our lives, rather than as enemies that destroy us. "Listen to your life!" is his clarion call. This theme pervades this definitive collection of sermons, delivered throughout Buechner's lifetime. Presented chronologically, they provide a clear picture of the development of his theology and thinking. Reflecting Buechner's exquisite gift for storytelling and his compassionate pastor's heart, Secrets in the Dark will inspire laughter, hope, and bring great solace. Turn the pages and rediscover what it means to be thoughtful about faith. See why this renowned writer has been quoted in countless pulpits and beloved by Americans for generations.

Review:

He has the rare gift of taking biblical text and helping us to see it [...] in a completely new way. --Lexington Herald Leader

...his work is a revelation...Here Buechner s storytelling abilities and eye for detail are at their best. --The Lutheran

An elegant and life-giving memoir. --Publishers Weekly

From the Back Cover:

This collection of Buechner's many sermons delivered throughout his lifetime is organized chronologically to reveal the development of his theology and thinking. Culled from great works such as The Magnificent Defeat, The Clown in the Belfry, A Room Called Remember, The Hungering Dark, and The Longing for Home, this collection also includes a new introduction and several new, previously unpublished sermons. It is through Buechner's sermons that we glimpse his genius most closely, and these reflections from one of today's best writers, thinkers, and preachers will inspire laughter, hope, and great peace.
