Brilliant, beautifully written sermons. These give me goosebumps almost every time I read them. Buechner is a phenomenal writer. ( )

A great place to start if you're new to Buechner. Each recorded sermon is it's own book. Like all his writing, it's brilliant. ( )

The earliest sermon in this collection is "The Magnificent Defeat," which I preached at Phillips Exeter Academy around 1959 or so when, fresh out of seminary, I started in as the new school minister.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061146617, Paperback)

Frederick Buechner has long been a kindred spirit to those who find elements of doubt as constant companions on their journey of faith. He is a passionate writer and preacher who can alter lives with a simple phrase.

Buechner's words, both written and spoken, have the power to revolutionize and revitalize belief and faith. He reveals the presence of God in the midst of daily life. He faces and embraces difficult questions and doubt as essential components of our lives, rather than as enemies that destroy us. "Listen to your life!" is his clarion call. This theme pervades this definitive collection of sermons, delivered throughout Buechner's lifetime. Presented chronologically, they provide a clear picture of the development of his theology and thinking. Reflecting Buechner's exquisite gift for storytelling and his compassionate pastor's heart, Secrets in the Dark will inspire laughter, hope, and bring great solace. Turn the pages and rediscover what it means to be thoughtful about faith. See why this renowned writer has been quoted in countless pulpits and beloved by Americans for generations.
