This is the Friday Featured New Book for March 13, 2015. The following is the description from the publisher's website:

"Parental Guidance Advised shows the Old Testament to be a creative, humorous, insightful, bawdy, dynamic, and enriching collection of sacred literature hammered out over centuries of wrestling with the divine/human relationship. It depicts the Old Testament not as a series of scenes of saints in action but rather as real-life stories of sinners who, somehow, despite themselves, become protagonists in God’s plot of salvation.

"Drawing from all three years of the lectionary and non-lectionary texts, Parental Guidance Advised provides profound and provocative sermons that honor the depth and complexity of both Bible and everyday life. Each chapter includes a brief essay on its topic, followed by suggested texts for preaching. Nine scholars offer their insights in honor of renowned professor John C. Holbert: Ronald J. Allen, Walter Brueggemann, Roy L. Heller, Ruthanna B. Hooke, Martha Myre, Richard Nelson, Richard Stern, Steven Tuell, and Mary Donovan Turner."
