Review of Biblical Literature (May 2005)

Circuit Rider (March/April 2006) "Wondrous Depth may have started out as a lecture series at Yale, but it reads more like a series of love letters, so intimate is the connection between the author and the text." --Jonathan D. Marlowe, Pastor, Shiloh United Methodist Church, Granite Quarry, NC

The Living Church (March 19, 2006) "Davis takes us not only to wondrous depths but on a wondrous path through what great preaching is and what it means for the Church....Davis continues to astonish us with her insights and commitment to the Old Testament as a vital source of theological reflection."

Homiletic (Vol. 30, No. 2, Winter 2005) "As those long-ago children urged Augustine, 'Take and Read!'" --John C. Holbert

Interpretation (Vol. 60, No. 1, Jan. 2006) "Both preachers attentive to the artistry of their craft and theological students learning how to think about the twin disciplines of exegesis and homiletics will find this book refreshing and challenging." --Paul K. Hooker, Presbytery of St. Augustine, Jacksonville, Florida
