I blogged the same quote from Buechner yesterday, Jim. It's enough to make one want to be a preacher! Thanks again for reminding me of the book's existence

Happy Birthday dear Balthasar! He enthused me in my youth and you have persuaded me to return to him soon.

The brilliant eloquence of Buechner inspires and challenges in equal measure!


I don't know about you, but I would love to have such a preacher for my pastor.
Me too! And for my mentor! Thanks for sharing it.
