In Season and Out

Grow in the Scriptures throughout the church year with David deSilva as your mentor.

Beginning with Advent and moving through the church year, David deSilva brings his years of experience as a biblical scholar to the church in the form of sermons delivered to his home congregation throughout the church year, now adapted into a thoughtful and inspiring collection of reflections.

These reflections will inform and inspire your understanding of Scripture, written with Dr. deSilva’s characteristic warmth and wisdom. In Season and Out makes for excellent devotional reading that will feed saints both in front of and behind the pulpit.
