Previously unpublished in the UK, The Seeds of Heaven originated as a series of radio broadcasts reflecting on stories and events from Matthew's Gospel. In the skilled hands of Barbara Brown Taylor these each become stories of our own time, resonating deeply with the hopes, fears and questions of contemporary readers as she finds and then brings to life timeless truth in the words and on the pages of the Bible. However much the pressing questions of our shared, public life change, here is an attempt to speak the truth of the Christian faith in a way that hours both the holiness of scripture and the holiness of people's real lives here on earth. These timeless stories of seeds, weeds, doubt, risk, family fights, shame and glory will speak deeply to many readers and enable them to discover God's truth in their own lives.
Barbara Brown Taylor is the bestselling author of numerous award-winning books and a priest in the Episcopal church. She is Professor of Religion at Piedmont College, Georgia and is on the Board of Advisors of Yale Divinity School.
