Upcoming Series of Guest Posts on “Leaps of Faith”

To celebrate the publication of Leaps of Faith: Sermons from the Edge, some of my friends have graciously agreed to write responses to the various sermons in the book.  It is humbling that such an accomplished collection of pastors, professors, and leaders in the Christian community have deemed my sermons worthy of their time and attention.  I hope their reflections, which will be posted in the days to come, will prove to be a blessing to all who read and serve to stimulate good conversation.  Here is a listing of the titles of the sermons appearing in the book along with the names of the contributors who will be providing reflections on each of the sermons.
