Item description for Living on One Day's Rations: First Lesson Sermons for Sundays After Pentecost (Middle Third), Cycle A by Douglas B. Bailey...

Overview
In eleven thought-provoking sermons based upon texts from Genesis and Exodus, Douglas Bailey highlights events from the lives of Jacob, his son Joseph, and Moses. But these messages are more than simple biblical exegesis - drawing on insights from scholarly research, Bailey demonstrates that the spiritual struggles and faith of Jacob, Joseph, and Moses are very pertinent to vital issues we face in our lives today. For example, Jacob's "growing pains" make us wonder "What prizes are worth working for?" and "Why does God pick a fight with us and challenge us to a wrestling match?" Similarly, the story of Joseph leads us to ask why genuine forgiveness is truly painful. And sermons reviewing major episodes in the life of Moses raise such questions as "Can we really trust God to come through when the chips are down?" and "Can an affluent society ever accept God's limited offer of one day's blessings - one day at a time?" Bailey mines the texts for answers to these timely questions, proving that the ancient texts are still very relevant.
