George A. DeFrehn III
The Best Sermons You’ve Never Heard
Too often in today’s world, we receive a vanilla version of the Word of God from our preachers, regardless of faith or denomination. Warm and fuzzy sermons make people happy. Watered-down theology upsets no one. Yet, the Carpenter from Nazareth, Jesus the Christ, gave us an unvarnished version of the Father’s Word. He was radical and revolutionary in His message: “Forgive your enemies!” “Pray for those who persecute you!” “Judge no one, and you will not be judged.” Jesus called the religious leaders of His time hypocrites because they refused to walk the talk.
This Yeshua (Jesus in Hebrew) was born in a cave and was buried in a friend’s tomb. While preaching the Good News of His Father, He comforted the sick, the widow, the orphan. He “hung out” with tax collectors, adulterers, lepers… and some of the other misfits of society. He made the lame walk, the deaf hear, and the blind see. For this, the Carpenter was nailed to a tree between two thieves on a Friday we still call Good.
This book is the first volume of a series of straight-talking inspirational sermons by George DeFrehn. Book one explores the four Gospels. George has no canonical authority and carries no hidden agenda. These sermons are simply one person’s search for the Truth of Life, utilizing the Word of God—the Bible. These thought-provoking sermons are one lay person’s version of the words and parables used by the Itinerant Preacher from Galilee, hopefully in an unvarnished version. Although George is a Roman Catholic, he writes for all people, denominations, faiths, believers, and non-believers alike. If his inspirational sermons touch one person, one soul, and assist in their search for the Truth…then God did His job!
This is George’s second book. His first: Is Anybody There? Memoir of a “Functional Alcoholic” was a 2016 Finalist for the prestigious Eric Hoffer Award for Excellence in Independent Publishing! This is still available on Amazon in both paperback and eBook versions.
