"Christians today need to hear more about the possibility that we don't have to stay the way we are," writes Durwood L. Buchheim. "God is not finished with us or with our world. So, Christians can live hopefully, expectantly and boldly. There is power to change. The Lent-Easter texts point in that direction."

The 15 sermons in this book are based on First Lesson texts. Lenten season sermons are based on six Old Testament books. Except for Easter Sunday, Easter season sermons are based on The book of Acts. The sermons follow the Revised Common Lectionary.

Christianity is about caring and sharing ... We are the people of God's future. We are to be signs of hope to those around us. Under the power of God's great grace, we can begin to live that way now. (from the Easter 2 sermon)
