These rich sermons are rooted in congregational life and steeped in Christian doctrine and the celebrations of the church year. A Kingdom We Can Taste reflects one preacher's effort at leading a congregation through the seasons of Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, and Easter. David Davis uses a unique combination of resources -- select Old Testament texts, the Apostles' Creed, lectionary assignments, and more -- in his progression of sermons.

Readers who "listen" to these thirteen messages, or preaching conversations, will experience the gospel proclaimed and feel a comforting sense of belonging to the community of faith. This inspiring little volume is perfect for pastors preparing sermons of their own, seminary students looking for a model of good preaching, or laypeople wanting quality meditations to chew on.

"Each of these sermons by David Davis welcomes our questions and doubts on the way to meaningful affirmations. Through these thoughtful reflections capturing congregational conversations, we too journey from Advent to Easter, thinking things through with a worshiping community intent on understanding both the Scriptures and the faith. Here is a pastor-preacher who never stops listening to his people and to the Word."
John Buchanan
— Fourth Presbyterian Church of Chicago
"Savor the tasty morsels in this book! David Davis combines solid biblical and theological scholarship with wise observations about contemporary life. The result is a compelling and accessible contribution for the journey from Advent to Easter for preachers, congregations, and any who wonder what Christian faith is about. I plan to read it again, a chapter at a time, to ponder, taste, and savor."
