Leander E. Keck presents a series of essays, sermons and lectures from a long career, the subjects ranging from historicity to the importance of listening and sympathy. Echoes of the Word suggests that now is the time for introspection among Christians: facing a crisis of secularization, he calls not merely for unity, but for a period of serious and reflective thought. Grounding his arguments in a profound understanding of both the Biblical texts and their historical context, Keck offers a deep analysis of how Christianity has been influenced by new converts down the centuries.
