Fleming Rutledge is a preacher and teacher known throughout the US, Canada, and parts of the UK. She is the author of ten books, all from Eerdmans Publishing. Her major work, The Crucifixion: Understanding the Death of Jesus Christ, is the product of a lifetime and is being described as a new classic on the subject.
Her special favorites among her books are And God Spoke to Abraham, which is a rarity, being exclusively Old Testament sermons, and Battle for Middle-earth, which is unusual among Tolkien books because it is constructed around the plot itself rather than various themes, and concentrates on the hidden theological message that Tolkien explicitly acknowledges in his personal letters.
Three Hours is a small book of Good Friday sermons preached at St Tomas 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!)
