  1. Everything you’d never expect to find in a book on doctrine; it is refreshing, dynamic, and thought provoking Review by Adam Kilner

    Catherine and John’s book is everything you’d never expect to find in a book on doctrine; it is refreshing, dynamic, and thought provoking. Both excellent and admired theologians, Catherine and John are able to take the grandiose theological concepts of history and draw the reader into the epic of faith using the vernacular. From chapter to chapter I found myself leaning in closer and closer, tuning in to how I might practically engage people on seemingly abstract ideas like the sovereignty of God, the atonement, and even baptism. This is the book on doctrine for our time!

  2. I will be a better preacher and pastor for having read it. Review by Bev Brazier

    I read this book in the summer. A book on doctrine isn't likely anyone's first choice at the beach. This one, however, is everything you'd want in a good summer read: it's refreshing, interesting, easy to read and left me glad I'd read it and wanting more.

    In one of its sermons, the preacher tells us we'll receive something to learn, something fascinating, and something to wonder about. This is exactly what the whole book does.

    Only authors deeply intimate with the life of the church could have written this book. Each chapter addresses a particular doctrine. For example: the sovereignty of God, human depravity, grace, vocation, sin, last things. There is a section on its history, then one on why it matters, what pastoral and liturgical occasions might call for such preaching, and finally a sample sermon.

    From two authors with faithful, trained imaginations, we are reminded that "life decisions are made in deep down places" and called to go to those places with our people. Thank you, MacLean and Young, for calling us to excellence and discipline in how we do that. I will be a better preacher and pastor for having read it.

    Clear, insightful, substantial, inspired, and inspiring: this book packs a punch!

    Gifted communicators and thinkers both, MacLean and Young reach into the deep wells of Christian thought and pull up for us an encouraging, hopeful word about the nourishment that resides there. They show us that substantial theological reflection is a powerful, sustaining adventure for both preachers and those who listen to preaching.

    Anyone who cares about the content and meaning of the Christian message in the contemporary world will find this book rich and rewarding.
