Oliver O'Donovan has been preaching and teaching for over three decades. Committed to the perpetual voyage that is the service of the Word of God, O'Donovan has a scholarly, yet immanently practical approach to theology that enriches both the mind and the Spirit, while calling one to an intelligent and compassionate interaction with the world. In The Word in Small Boats, O'Donovan offers thirty-two select sermons that he has preached over the course of some twenty years.
The World in Small Boats is a collection of sermons given at Oxford that vary widely in topic, but all serve to provide a rich and edifying exposition on God's word. This book makes perfect devotional reading for those who take an intellectual approach to their faith, but who do not sacrifice the spiritual disciplines that Christianity calls us too. It is a perfect book to read on vacation or for pastors and scholars who are on retreat. Highly recommended.
