"I have heard Bill Kincaid preach. After reading this book of sermons I am of the opinion that he has defied the axiom that sermons that preach well don't read well, and sermons that read well don't preach well. The sermons in this volume read well and at the same time make me wish I had preached them. They... will stimulate new thinking about the meaning and significance of Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany. As a pastor I often ask myself what "new" thing can be said about them. These sermons answer that question with a contagious power that will make anyone who loves preaching look forward to the chance to preach during the first seasons of the church year."

"The biblical texts of these sermons are familiar, but don't expect the same tired old treatment of them. Kincaid brings freshness to these lessons and produces sermons that are powerful and insightful... a wonderful blend of scholarship and spirituality. Read them and learn. Read them and worship."
