This book is written for preachers and for those in training as preachers, and will be particularly useful for those preparing homilies based on Roman and Common Lectionary readings for use at the Sunday Eucharist and other liturgical services. The author draws upon the insights of the Second Vatican Council on the place of homily in the Liturgy. He also finds inspiration in the North American "New Homiletic," inviting preachers to examine and experiment with a range of innovative strategies so as to engage in preaching that comes alive in the imagination of their hearers. Examples of the author's own homilies illustrate the application of his approach. "Duncan Macpherson has provided a welcome theological framework for the proclamation of God's word". George Stack, (Archbishop of Cardiff) This is a book by a master in the theory and practice of preaching. It provides much help and encouragement towards improving liturgical preaching. Gerry O'Collins S.J. (Emeritus Professor of New Testament, Pontifical Gregorian University, Rome). Macpherson's ecumenical commitments, liturgical reverence and exegetical expertise make the book a valuable addition to any preacher's library.

Alyce M. McKenzie ( Professor of Homiletics, Southern Methodist University, Dallas) Here's a book born of one Christian community that speaks encouragement and good sense to preachers of every tradition. This is genuinely practical theology. Canon Dr Christopher Burkett, (Director of Ministry, Anglican Diocese of Chester)
