In this second collection of sermons and addresses, John L. Bell proves that he is not one to shy away from the challenges provided by biblical stories. Likewise he proves startlingly adept at articulating the often uncomfortable questions the Bible poses for contemporary life. Paul, Job, Jeremiah, Elijah and Zachariah are among the biblical characters the author examines. His reflections cover a range of life issues and situations: from patience and love to transfiguration and death - and incisively, in the longest piece in the collection, the events of September 11th, 2001.

John Bell is a minister of the Church of Scotland and a member of the Iona Community. He lectures and preaches throughout the English-speaking world. Along with his colleagues in the Wild Goose Worship and Resource Groups he has produced over fifty books and recordings containing congregational song and anthems, and dramatic, reflective and liturgical resources. He is also an occasional broadcaster on radio and television.
