Format: Paperback
The general thrust of these sermons is against idolatry in thought and action – thinking of God as the kind of God we would choose to be if it were up to us to be divine, for whatever lofty reason, and then worshipping our hideous creation as if it were in fact the true and living God. The main focus of these sermons is on Jesus of Nazareth – and on how his life with us and his cruel death at our hands reveal to us the interior life of God the Trinity. The enduring lesson of these sermons is that, as we are freely redeemed by his death and resurrection, our lives with each other, here and in the world to come, are no longer a distorted image of God’s own life. Indeed, the point is that we come to share in God’ own boundless life and that grace somehow obliterates the difference between his life and ours. McCabe considers a number of traditional Christian themes in the light of these basic insights, and his wonderfully dry wit effectively punctures the seriousness with which we take our own fixations on gods made in our image. This is theology of a rare depth – enlivened by the best thinking in the Christian tradition, rooted in the circumstances of oral delivery and accessible to everyone with an open mind.

Format: Paperback
This is a collection of sermons by someone who must rank as one of the great preachers in 20th century England. McCabe's style is simple and direct, and yet the ideas expressed here are subtle and rich. This is in large part due to his enviable practical knowlegde of Scripture and the theology of Thomas Aquinas. Thoroughly orthodox, McCabe nevertheless loved to provoke his listener to further thought by fresh presentations of old ideas. These sermons are an unusual mix of powerful rhetoric and good argument, not to mention a seasoning of wit! Highly recommended.
