Item Description...
Overview
Since the Reformation, the focal point of worship for many Christian churches has been the table of the Word-the proclamation of Scriptures and the preaching event. Congregations have been fed, often well and abundantly, at the "single feast" table of the Word. But what is the role of preaching in the "double feast" churches-churches whose normative liturgical worship features rites at the two tables of the Word and of the Eucharist? This is a multi-voiced ecumenical preaching anthology full of insights from those who preside, preach, and celebrate the double feast. In terms of time, as well as content and structure, proclamation and preaching at the double feast will be very different from preaching at worship that is exclusively Word-centered. Father Michael Monshau adds timely and critical new perspective to the issue by bringing together five significant voices from "double feast" churches whose presentations, in effect, become varied, short textbooks on how to preach.

Publishers Description

Since the Reformation, the focal point of worship for many Christian churches has been the tale of the Word 'the proclamation of Scriptures and the preaching event. Congregations have been fed, often well and abundantly, at the single feast tale of the Word.

But what is the role of preaching in the double feast churches 'churches whose normative liturgical worship features rites at the two tales of the Word and of the Eucharist? This is a multi-voiced ecumenical preaching anthology full of insights from those who preside, preach, and celebrate the double feast.

In terms of time, as well as content and structure, proclamation and preaching at the double feast will be very different from preaching at worship that is exclusively Word-centered. Father Michael Monshau adds timely and critical new perspective to the issue by bringing together five significant voices from double feast churches whose presentations, in effect, become varied, short textbooks on how to preach.

"Michal Monshau, OP, PhD, is a Dominican priest and the professor of homiletics at the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology at the Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley, California. He is active in spiritual direction, writing, religious formation, and retreat ministry."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Invaluable Resource for Preachers of the Word/Eucharist  Nov 24, 2006
The five contributors to this invaluable book on homiletics share their reflections on preaching for the "double feast," the two-fold liturgical structure of word and sacrament. Each also offers instruction on planning, constructing, and delivering a homily.

Father Michael Monshau, O.P., Ph.D., a professor of homiletics, reviews the history of preaching in the Catholic tradition from the early Church through the Second Vatican Council and beyond. He lists three basic principles that underlie good preaching: Grace builds on nature. God is present in human experience and in this world. The universal is most effectively expressed in the particular.

A professor of preaching, Rev. Mary Alice Mulligan, Ph.D., of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), views a homilist's task in terms of the congregation: "Our people come limping into church, hoping against hope that they will hear a word of life from the Lord," and it is the preacher's job to make sure they hear words of divine good news that make a difference in their lives. Rev. J. Sergius Halvorsen, a priest of the Orthodox Church in America, writes of the preacher as a "liturgical poet," and critiques formats such as "three points," and "four questions," and the "lettuce" solution: "Brothers and sisters, let us (lettuce) therefore pray for strength and hope..."

Sister Mary Ann Wiesemann-Mills, O.P., D.Min., a professor of homiletics, sees preaching the double feast as "plunging our listeners and ourselves into an experience of God, an experience which will naturally lead to a celebration which seeps into our bones and urges us toward change." Rev. Linda L. Clader, Ph.D., an Episcopalian priest and professor of homiletics, addresses the "music of preaching," the art of presence, liturgical dialect, and the call to prophecy, saying, "I believe that our primary prophetic responsibility is to invite openness."
