Ministers struggle to find new and captivating angles on the stories that have been told and retold for centuries. The rest of us just struggle to find some meaning amid all the sensationalism that typically surrounds these holy days. The author offers some hope for both the preacher and the listener. Beginning with the season of Advent, Dant guides us to Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Holy Week, Easter and Pentecost. Added to these prominent holy days are sermons and thoughts for national holidays. The lessons and insights tucked into these pages would be welcomed on any day of your life. The nature of these meditations is rooted in the author's personal background. His faith is even broader, as he was born to a Jewish mother, christened into the Roman Catholic church, adopted as a young student into a Baptist family and educated at a Presbyterian seminary. It is from that rich background that he shares these stories and sermons with us.
