Preaching Day 2017 - Fleming Rutledge
Fleming Rutledge

Fleming Rutledge, having spent twenty-two years in parish ministry, now has an international preaching and teaching vocation. Her most recent book, The Crucifixion: Understanding the Death of Jesus Christ (Eerdmans, 2015), has received praise from scholars as well as preachers.  The Church Times said ‘The book is at once profound and preachable. A preacher will find material, and illustrations, for many sermons. Any Christian would find it uplifting, and academic theologians will see just how theology can best be put at the service of the wider Church.’  Her previous books have met with wide acclaim across denominational lines and national borders. She is also author of God Spoke to Abraham: Preaching from the Old Testament, and The Battle for Middle-earth: Tolkien's Divine Design in The Lord of the Rings, which has a fan base in Europe as well as the US.
