This title comprises 12 sermons preached at venues all over the world by New Testament scholar and Methodist minister Rev. R. Grace Imathiu. Each sermon provides fresh insights, and even unexpected twists, to classic interpretations of the Biblical text. Grace Imathiu brings a womanist and African perspective to Bible scholarship, which has so often been dominated by male and Eurocentric interpretations.
The book is a valuable resource for Bible study groups, seminary and divinity school classes on homiletics. It is also an inspirational text for personal Bible study. The sermons are spiced with humor and many relevant examples from recent history. The book concludes with an interview section on preaching, featuring among others, Dr. Eddie Fox, the Director of Evangelism for the World Methodist Council. The foreword was written by Bishop Sharon Zimmerman Rader of Wisconsin.
