Endorsements & Reviews-
"Amy Richter and Joe Pagano break open the flesh and bone of our human condition, inviting us to glimpse the love that shines through. Through imagination and scholarship they illuminate the wonder of our vulnerability and the God who loves us in our very bones."
--Joan Penzenstadler, Vice President for Mission and Identity, Mount Mary University, Wisconsin
"[Here is] preaching at its thoughtful and provocative best. Written with wisdom finely attuned to the joys and the sorrows of human experience, these sermons probe how fully and irrevocably God has become present to and for us in the incarnation of Christ Jesus."
--Philip J. Rossi, Department of Theology, Marquette University, Wisconsin
"Richter and Pagano merge inquisitive intellects with the richness of faith as they explore the mystery of God made flesh. In the physical world, whether the context is a fog-shrouded hike up an unconquerable mountain or in imagined details such as 'Herod's splayed hands on a windowsill,' this book illuminates the paradox that God is in us, as us--that eternal love was made to dwell forever in the transitory house of flesh and bone."
--Laura Oliver, author of The Story Within
"Preachers are to bring alive the word of God such that individuals and the church are transformed by God's grace. Amy Richter and Joe Pagano bring alive the Word by thorough scholarship and vivid imagery, focused on faith experienced in daily living. Through Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany, they witness in their words to the power of God's love as an incarnate--flesh and bone--reality for contemporary Christians."
--John L. Rabb, Bishop Suffragan (Ret.), Maryland
