Item description for Gospel Medicine by Barbara Brown Taylor...

Gospel medicine is Barbara Taylor's metaphor for the healing power of God seen in the active and ongoing restoration of this broken world. In this new collection of sermons she practices the old-fashioned art of gospel home remedies like a true evangelist, summoning with piercing clarity and wit the Old and New Testament stories that have the power to mend our spirits, strengthen our weaknesses, and restore us to wholeness. Scripture comes to life in the contemporary people and places of which Taylor speaks. Georgia apple-growers become God's sharecroppers of the gospel parable; through Mary's embracing of her role as God-bearer we are dared to take risks in our own discipleship; in Jonah's angry stand-off with God we see reflections of our own struggles with a God who is more forgiving than we want him to be; with tender awe after years of waiting Sarah wipes her hands on her apron and goes to tell Abraham she is to bear a child. Through the stories of Scripture, Taylor addresses with moving simplicity the contemporary wounds of anger, abandonment, fear of judgment, and a longing for home, healing, and mercy.

Reviews - What do customers think about Gospel Medicine?

Wonderful resource  Jan 9, 2007
A great resource for speaking topics in church settings or for reflections on Gospel passages.
Great book  Aug 17, 2006
This is a great book. I read a new sermon from the book each day before going to work. They were fresh and insightful. It really added a lot to my personal devotion time. I highly recommend it. I will definitely be purchasing similar books by Barbara Brown Taylor.
Good Medicine  Mar 31, 2000
Collections of sermons often are wooden and without the life they may enjoy as part of the liturgy. However, Barbara Brown Taylor's GOSPEL MEDICINE is a group of readable meditations that seem to come to life in front of you. Examples from everyday life never seem trite or forced and even when one thinks there's nothing new to be said about a Scripture passage, she presents a new twist, often one that can be immediately incorporated into daily living. Her language is always alive and present, very fresh without being cloying. A refreshing change from so many contemporary mediations on scripture texts.
