Jerry Taylor's preaching is characterized as a "compassionate prophetic voice" delivered in the traditional African American form: "Start slow, stay low, rise higher, and end in fire." Courageous Compassion provides ten of Taylor's best-crafted sermons, including "The Curse of Babel," "They That Wait upon the Lord," "Courageous Compassion," and "Alive to God." Respected theorists, biblical scholars, and church leaders have responded to the sermons, providing analysis, homiletic insight, reflections from the tradition of black preaching, and comments on what Taylor is "doing right."

David Fleer is professor of Bible and communication and special assistant to the president at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee.
