Generous Orthodoxy  

Three Hours is a small book of Good Friday sermons preached at St. Thomas Fifth Avenue in New York City in 2018, available now for Lent 2019.

Advent: The Once and Future Coming of Jesus Christ, Fleming’s previous book, was published by Eerdmans in September 2018 and met with very strong sales.

Fleming’s recent book, The Crucifixion: Understanding the Death of Christ, won the award for Best Reference Book of 2015 from the Academy of Parish Clergy. Six months later, it was named Book of the Year 2016 by Christianity Today.

Fleming’s 2012 book, And God Spoke to Abraham, comes with exceptional endorsements and is one of only two major Old Testament sermon collections published in English in almost 40 years. (The other one, published in 2016, is Stewards of the Mysteries of God, by Patrick D. Miller [with a foreword by Fleming Rutledge]. A gem from earlier years is Gerhard von Rad’s Biblical Interpretations in Preaching [Abingdon, 1977]. It is a priceless treasure; get it if you can!)

Eerdmans offers superior service, discounts, and speedy delivery for all of Fleming’s books, rivaling Amazon if you are a member of the clergy or ordering for a church. If you order 10 copies for Bible study groups or for gifts, the discount is really significant. Contact Amy Kent at for discounts.

All of the books are available as e-books. Again, contact Eerdmans directly at for excellent results.
