Reviews - What do customers think about Sermons On The First Readings?

Incredible  Jan 8, 2003
My dear friend, Pastor Linda Forsberg gave this book to me as a birthday present in May 2002. One day I began reading the sermons and and I found the book to be a treasure! I've revisited the pages a few times and each time I see a different message.

I am one of the fortunate ones who actually attends Pastor Linda's church and have witnessed her gift. I highly recommend this book.
