about

In Preaching to the Hungers' of the Heart Father James Wallace offers a nuanced consideration of the homily as nourishment. He focuses on three common liturgical contexts: feasts of the Lord, feasts of Mary and the saints, and the various sacramental rites. He relates the preaching that occurs within each area to one of the heart's basic hungers: for wholeness (the great feasts of the Lord), for guidance (feasts of Mary and the saints), and for meaning (various rites). He also addresses the spirituality of the preacher as it is worked out in the process of preparation.

Editorial Reviews

"Rarely have I read a book on preaching that is so rich, informative, encouraging, practical. Fresh ideas, vivid imagination, familiarity with contemporary literature, stories, playing with metaphors, excursions into history-it's genuinely breathtaking...my heart was on fire."
