Ridder served in an impressive variety of roles. He pastored churches in five states, served as Minister of Evangelism for the Reformed Church in America, and was named president of three different seminaries. But no matter what his role, Ridders ministry is best viewed as an engagement of the gospel with the culture. Perhaps nowhere is this more apparent than in his sermons. / Here editor George Brown, Jr., has collected over forty of Ridders sermons including several sermon series which draw on the popular culture of his time, current events, and critical social issues, all examined through the lens of Scripture. This is a book in which anyone in the ministry and all those who seek to engage the gospel with the culture can find a wealth of examples and inspiration. / Pastor Ridder is one of the most eloquent voices in the contemporary Reformed tradition. For so many years he preached vibrant theology in his sermons. In a day when sermons seem to be getting thin and insubstantial, Ridders sermons recall all of us preacher to the nobility and the gravity of our task. William H. Willimon / Bishop of the United Methodist Church, North Alabama Conference
