Barbara Brown Taylor has the rare combination of a sturdy theological mind and a receptive, almost wide-eyed, openness to experience. She is amazingly non-judgmental. She does not sort experiences or people into good and bad boxes, but dwells patiently and expectantly with them, confident that God has something to teach her in virtually everything. -- Thomas G. Long, Bandy Professor of Preaching, Candler School of Theology, Emory University, Atlanta, GA * Princeton Theological Seminary *
Gospel Medicine by Barbara Brown Taylor is a book of sermons that read like short stories. ...The book is packed with memorable sayings and word pictures: 'In case you have not noticed, Christianity is a religion in which the sinners have all the advantages,' reads one. ...I read one of these sermons out loud, just to see whether they spoke as well as they read. They do. * Ecw Communique *
Those who have read Barbara Brown Taylor's The Preaching Life will surely welcome Gospel Medicine. Like her earlier work, this is a collection of sermons that address a variety of life situations. Taylor is a preacher/writer of uncommon skill, a homiletical thaumaturgist, if you will. . . . Taylor will catch your attention with a riveting phrase or striking allusion as she leads you down unfamiliar pathways where, to your surprise, you will discover new/old truths about yourself, your community, and your world. * Anglican Theological Review *
Barbara Brown Taylor has won the respect of homileticians through her writing, lectures, and sermons at preaching conferences. This book of sermons will only enhance her reputation for theological insight and gracious speech. The gospel she shares is fresh and clear. ...She writes with the feeling of the poet and the warmth of a personal friend who understands the struggle to be human and Christian. * The Review and Expositor *
In these down to earth observations on God's presence in a broken world, Ms. Taylor re-examines a few of the 'tried and true' Old and New Testament stories with a fresh and a sharp discerning eye. * Faith At Work *
Like all the best Anglican preachers, Taylor has a fine ear. She is not only attentive to speaking the truth (and there is a lot of truth in these pages). She is also concerned to speak that truth plainly, elegantly, and in relationship to the life we live. . . . Taylor herself is good medicine. * The Living Church *
