A series of sermons, revealing Brunner as an outstanding preacher. Few theologians of his eminence combine their understanding of the central doctrines of the Christian faith with such persuasive spiritual exposition and eloquence.

"Preaching," says Brunner, "is a living occurrence which can only very imperfectly be crystallised in writing." But the most critical judges of sermons will admit that here a master preacher moves beyond the printed page into the soul of the reader.

There is a personal poignancy about the Fraumünster sermons, which places them in the forefront of modern preaching. Here a great teacher of the faith proclaims the Word of God to a 'believing congregation' – an encounter seen by Brunner as decisive for Christian communication.

Dr Emil Brunner was made Privatdozent at the University of Zurich at the age of 33, and later was appointed Professor of Systematic and Practical Theology. In 1953 he became Professor of Christian University, Tokyo (Japan) and in 1955 returned to Zurich.

His three-volume masterpiece Dogmatics is available from our sister imprint James Clarke and Co Ltd.
