For Immediate Release

New Collection Offers Culturally-Diverse Sermons

Valley Forge, PA -Judson Press announces the May 2008 release of Those Preaching Women: A Multicultural Collection.

Edited by Ella Pearson Mitchell and Valerie Bridgeman Davis, the collection is the fifth title in the series, "Those Preaching Women," which saw its first volume published in 1985. While previous editions were dedicated to sermons of African American women in various denominations and ministries, this resource uniquely reflects the rich ethnic diversity of 21st century America by including the voices of African American, Cuban, Native American, European American, Puerto Rican, South Korean, South Vietnamese, and West Indian women.

In each exemplary sermon, these women communicate how human needs and concerns cross social, class, ethnic, and racial divides. Messages cover the full canon of Scripture, addressing a variety of themes, including hope, justice, relationships, and peace. Respected preacher and scholar Katie G. Cannon writes in the book's foreword: "These thirty-two women preachers offer us sermons that expand our horizons and enliven our souls. . . . Each sermon is intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually demanding."
