Kristin Borsgard Wee tells us that the scriptures are "endlessly fascinating, constantly surprising, and an unparalleled adventure in God's interaction with people." The same might be said of these first-rate sermons based mainly on texts from the book of Genesis. Readers will discover that Wee has an uncanny ability to place them right in the heart of the lections -- experiencing what the biblical characters did while at the same time revealing what God is trying to say to us that can transform our lives. By challenging basic assumptions and raising interesting questions, Wee is able to unveil some of the truths about God and human nature that are embedded in these sacred texts. These messages offer to readers, in the words of Anne Lamott, "a path and a little light to see by."

Here is a preacher who knows her audience. The context for her sermons is all parish and the lives of her parishioners (all ages). She is a wordsmith and storyteller supreme. Her sermons are anchored in scripture. She has a great talent in mining the surprises that are in the text. For this preacher, law and gospel are never in doubt, but God's grace reigns supreme. This is one fine preacher. These are excellent sermons. I commend them to you.

Pastor Wee writes about the practical and everyday issues of life with a distinctly human touch. Through her sermons we clearly see a God who understands our daily situations and acts on our behalf.

For those who have difficulty in hearing "Gospel" in the Old Testament stories, Kris Wee's volume of sermons is a healthy corrective and a refreshing reminder. In her carefully constructed sermons containing a good mix of biblical exposition and stories, we have pictured for us God's great and gentle love in action. Her sermons are "full of God," who remains transcendant, yet warm and approachable.
