Here's what people are saying...

Word Alive! is a faith-enlivening, faith-strengthening resource…If you want to see the heart of what makes the Bible a unique Word, and the message of Jesus Christ an enduring reality still today, you’ll see it in the simple, compelling Word Alive! sermons of a pastor who has spent his life trying to speak that Word for you. [Excerpt from the Foreword.]
Rev. Dr. Gregory Seltz, Executive Director, Lutheran Center for Religious Liberty; Speaker Emeritus of The Lutheran Hour

Dr. Dale Meyer approaches God's Word with childlike wonder, scholarly precision, and the heart of a pastor. The result are sermons with connective power for a wide range of people: the average person in the pew, radio audiences numbering in the millions, and scholars in a faith-forming academic community. These sermons truly feed the soul, providing encouragement and direction for daily living. Dr. Meyer insightfully and insistently takes readers to the cross and shows them Jesus. What a blessing!
Rev. Dr. Thomas R. Ahlersmeyer, Senior Pastor, Holy Cross Lutheran Church, Fort. Wayne, IN

Riding on the Lutheran Hour Ministries Rose Parade float with Rev. Dale Meyer, we rounded the corner in front of the packed stands of spectators in Pasadena – and with a huge sigh he said, "Oh, how I would love to preach to this crowd!" A pure passion for preaching! And that's exactly what you will find as you "hear" the Word of God shared in this collection of sermons for your daily devotion and study.
Patti Ross, President, Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML)

Thought-provoking, Insightful. Christ-centered. Law and Gospel. Humorous. Sincere. These are some of the words to describe Dr. Dale Meyer’s sermons. When preaching, Dr. Meyer has the gift of connecting with and engaging people of all ages, even if they don’t think they have the need or the time for their Savior. He brings sound theology down to earth with sincerity, humor, and obvious love of the people of God. As a church musician, I have never tired of hearing Dr. Meyer preach at Holy Cross in Collinsville – sometimes the same sermon several times a weekend at multiple services! His preaching style is a mix of ‘folksy’ and ‘friendliness’ – never patronizing or distant-- yet he is still able to challenge the thoughts and hearts of his listeners with words of truth, grace, law and Gospel. It is always a pleasure to hear his sermons! Quoting Scripture, hymn verses, Luther, and other theologians with equal enthusiasm, Dr. Meyer’s sermons educate as well as edify. Everyone who is engaged in any aspect of public ministry can benefit not only from reading the words of Dr. Meyer’s sermons, but also from celebrating and emulating his sincerity and manner of communication. This collection of his sermons will be a treasure on the shelf of lay person and clergy alike.
Karen Shimkus, Retired Director of Music, Holy Cross Lutheran Church, Collinsville, IL

There’s no other way to put it: Dr. Meyers’s sermons are some of the best I've heard! As a teacher, Dr. Meyer said a preacher must apply God’s Word to the word of the world, and do so in a way that is relatable, memorable and inspirational. Dr. Meyer not only teaches this, but does it again and again in his sermons, encouraging his hearers to a stronger confidence in their Lord Jesus Christ and motiving them for faithful service in His name.
Rev. Craig Reiter, Holy Cross Lutheran Church, Ste. Genevieve, Missouri; Concordia Seminary MDiv. Class of 2017
