Barbara Brown Taylor ⢓ Taylor, an Episcopal priest and acclaimed preacher, begins with a series of personal reflections on her life, her perception of the church, and issues of vocation, imagination, Bible, worship, and preaching Her reflections on post Christian environments from a visit to Turkey and her own life in America , on baptism and ordination, and on studying the Bible critically lead the reader to a deeper understanding of the meaning behind the familiar words of faith The second half of the book consists of 13 of Taylor s sermons, which continue her emphasis on story Throughout, there is a good balance between biographical material and algeneral reflection the sermons support the discussion Taylor s work is recommended for seminary, church, and large public libraries.Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.Barbara Brown Taylor tells an engaging story of the birth of her own voice as a preacher, the struggles to bring the gospel to speech, and the joys of being an instrument of God s will William H Willmon It is easy for those of us who preach to slip into thinking of preaching as a task, a chore, even a weekly homework assignment Taylor, as a parish priest, is fully aware of the incessant demands of the pulpit But to her mind, preaching is not just a duty it is also a ceaseless delight Her use of language is enchanting her prose is luxuriant Images spin across the pages like ballerinas Taylor has the rare combination of a sturdy theological mind and a receptive, almost wide eyed, openness to experience In sum, this is a book about the life of a preacher, but than that it is about being fully alive in the Christian faith Barbara Brown Taylor is, to use her own words, a detective of divinity, collecting evidence of God s genius and admiring the tracks left for me to follow I am grateful that she is on the case Thomas G Long, Bandy Professor of Preaching, Candler School of Theology, Emory University, Atlanta, GA Princeton Theological Seminary The decision of the Episcopal Church in 1976 to ordain women to the priesthood and episcopate has brought us many blessings, not the least of which is the improvement in preaching Probably no other woman has contributed as much to that improvement as Barbara Brown Taylor Nor is it likely that another has received so much recognition for her contribution I am convinced that whoever reads the book will marvel at it, take pleasure in it, and be lured beyond their present stage of progress by it In his essay on Anglican spirituality in The Study of Anglicanism, A M Allchin pointed out the close connection between our spiritual writings and the creation of great literature This he attributes to a sense of the presence of God in all things and all people Taylor s work has that quality While all of us cannot expect to preach as well as she, reading her work can alert us to looking for what she sees and can also show us how she enables us to see it too and to show it to others At the very least, we can quote some of her phrases and help them to continue doing their marvelous work O.C Edwards Jr Seabury Western Theological Seminary Barbara Brown Taylor has
