This title includes a Foreword by Brian D. McLaren. The collection of Buechner's many sermons delivered throughout his lifetime is organized chronologically to reveal the development of his theology and thinking. Culled from great works such as: "The Magnificent Defeat", "The Clown in the Belfry", "A Room Called Remember", "The Hungering Dark", and "The Longing for Home", this collection also includes a new introduction and several new, previously unpublished sermons. It is through Buechner's sermons that we glimpse his genius most closely, and these reflections from one of today's best writers, thinkers, and preachers will inspire laughter, hope, and great peace.
