I returned to my occasional series, "Faces in the Crowd" last Sunday, preaching on Ishmael. This Sunday, I'll be preaching on Rahab the Harlot, followed the next Sunday by Jephthah and his Daughter. How's that for searching the Scriptures, eh?

"Faces in the Crowd" are sermons based on the life stories of some of the lesser known characters in the Bible. I've written enough over the years to publish two volumes of sermons from this series (one Old Testament, one New Testament).
