Cycle A Gospel Sermons for Pentecost 23 Through Thanksgiving Day
Albert G. Butzer, III
In this latest collection of Cycle A gospel sermons for Pentecost (last third), Albert Butzer shows that we Christians live our lives with one leg in the ancient and sacred world of the Bible and the other leg in our modern, scientific world. The job of the preacher is to make holy sense of the intersection of these two worlds. It is a great honor and a sacred responsibility to do this, as well as a weekly lesson in humility.

Cycle B Sermons for Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany Based on the Gospel Texts
Michael L. Sherer
Jesus is the embodiment of what God means for our world. The gospel writers who penned the first four books of the Christian scriptures have given us a variety of insights into who Jesus was and is, and why he matters for contemporary humankind. Every thoughtful person defines the world according to him- or her-self. This series of sermons aims to present 'the world according to Jesus.'

Cycle B Sermons for Proper 16 - 29 Based on the Gospel texts
Frank Ramirez
Jesus told his apostles to "count the cost" of following him. For the twelve, it meant leaving their jobs, their homes and families. It meant literally taking up a new life and leaving the old one behind.

What is the cost of following Jesus today?

Frank Ramirez challenges the modern Church as he explores that question in Mark His Word: Cycle B Sermons for Proper 16 through Thanksgiving Based on the Gospel Texts. Using analogies from the space race to a science fiction short story by Isaac Asimov to the diary of a Civil War-era abolitionist preacher, Ramirez paints a variety of pictures of what it looks like to act in allegiance to the cause of Christ, to answer the call of the Holy Spirit no matter the consequences.

The pastor who utilizes Mark His Word will see a church reinvigorated in time for Advent, prepared to step forth courageously into the world to live and speak truth to a world dying to know it.

Cycle B Sermons for Pentecost Through Proper 15 Based on the Gospel Texts
Dean Feldmeyer
The season after Pentecost has had several different names over the years.  It has been called "Ordinary Time," which meant that the Sundays were numbered, not that they were common or mundane.  It has been called "Kingdomtide" as the celebration of the imminent nature of God's Kingdom breaking forth in the world as both present and future reality.  And it has sometimes just been called "The Time after Pentecost."   Whatever we choose to call it, it is often felt as a slow-down, or a sag in the enthusiasm and energy of the church.  Rarely does anything new begin in the summer.  It's a time of waiting for vacations to end and school to begin again so we can get back to the business of doing ministry.  The sermons in Like A Phoenix offer the goal of bringing new vigor and vitality into the life of the church even in the hot months of the year when everything and everyone is calling us to slow down and take it easy.

Since the season after Pentecost is drawn out it may be more difficult to come up with sermon ideas. This book will help ease the burden. A busy pastor will have more time to focus things other than sermon preparation, especially during the summer, with vacation time in full-swing.

Cycle B Sermons for Lent & Easter Based on the Gospel Texts
Timothy W Ayers
Imagining the Gospels: Cycle B Sermons for Lent and Easter Based on the Gospel Texts is the latest from Rev. Timothy W. Ayers. As a pastor who writes his messages while also writing novels, children's books, and short dramas, Rev. Ayers found himself working hard to visually create the picture of what was happening in the gospel accounts. Why? These were people listening to Jesus. They would have had emotions about the topics. They would have had little things they recognized when Jesus spoke about lambs, shepherds, and vines. Much like our congregants, there would be nods of recognition toward experiences in their lives. His goal was to get the listener to imagine themselves, with their feelings, and their reasons for being in church, to better use their cognitive skills, inside the stories.

At other times, Ayers sought to take them on a week by week journey through the Easter season. He didn't assume they have a relationship with Christ. He didn't assume they are vibrant, serving members of the congregation. He only assumed that the listener is seeking something they do not have. He was attempting to take them one step further on a journey from week to week.

At times Rev. Ayers brings humor to the scene in order to lighten the mood of the listener. The body relaxes when we laugh and that helps us to hear the message. Imagining the Gospels hopefully will achieve this.

This book will make life easier for any busy pastor during the Lent and Easter season, by providing a sermon for each and every Sunday, when attendance is likely to be at its highest.
