Christian Preaching and Worship in Multicultural Contexts

A Practical Theological Approach

Eunjoo Mary Kim; Foreword by Mark R. Francis

Can Christian preaching and worship in multicultural contexts be more faithful to the Christian gospel and more meaningful and memorable to worshipers? In this book, Eunjoo Mary Kim explores this theological and liturgical concern and proposes a paradigm shift from monocultural to multicultural worship. This volume will help preachers and worship leaders, as well as homiletics and liturgics scholars, seek theological and biblical wisdom for the practice of Christian preaching and worship in multicultural contexts. Kim also provides homiletical and liturgical insights into this practice. By integrating this paradigm shift, ministers and worshipers can participate in a life worthy of living together in our multicultural world.Eunjoo Mary Kim is professor of homiletics and liturgics at Iliff School of Theology in Denver, Colorado. She is the author of Preaching in an Age of Globalization (2010), Women Preaching: Theology and Practice through the Ages (2004), and Preaching the Presence of God: A Homiletic from the Asian American Perspective (1999), as well as a coeditor of Women, Church, and Leadership: New Paradigms (2012).

A Handbook for Catholic Preaching

Edward Foley, General Editor, Introduction by Timothy Radcliffe

While admitting particular parameters and priorities for Roman Catholic preachers, this volume was intentionally envisioned as a handbook for "catholic" preaching in the broadest and most universal sense of that term. Cosponsored by the Catholic Academy of Liturgy, the Catholic Association of Teachers of Homiletics, and the Federation of Diocesan Liturgical Commissions, it covers the role of the Scriptures in preaching, the challenges of preaching in a digital age, sermonizing in an interfaith context, and the need for a liberative and prophetic word that cuts across denominations and even faith traditions. Intended to aid those who teach or direct the preaching arts, the design and writing style of this book are particularly calibrated to graduate students in ministerial studies. Every article is a self-contained overview of a particular historical period, genre of preaching, homiletic theory, or contemporary issue. This more encyclopedic approach—devoid of footnotes, yet supported by pertinent bibliography and an extensive index—provides a sufficiently rich yet thoroughly accessible gateway to major facets of the preaching arts at this stage of the twenty-first century.

Between the Ambo and the Altar

Biblical Preaching and The Roman Missal, Year C

Guerric DeBona, OSB

The publication of The Roman Missal, Third Edition offers an opportunity for homilists to explore the relationship between the Sunday readings and the new Roman Missal. Between the Ambo and the Altar is the final book (Year C) in a three-volume series that presents scriptural, liturgical, and preaching commentary for Sundays, solemnities, and feasts throughout the year. Each Sunday's resources are presented in three sections: exploring the Scripture, connecting the Lectionary with the liturgy, and a homiletic strategy. DeBona takes the preacher through a meditation on the language of the Missal, suggests parallels to the Sunday Lectionary, and gives practical homiletic strategies using core themes and images. It is hoped that the commentary advances a framework for homily preparation so that preachers might "savor the deep meaning of the word of God which unfolds each year in the liturgy" (Benedict XVI, Verbum Domini 52).Father Guerric DeBona, OSB, is a member of Saint Meinrad Archabbey and is professor of homiletics and communication at Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology. He is a contributor to Give Us This Day, published by Liturgical Press, and has published several books and articles on preaching, cultural studies, and religious communication.

Preaching to a Multi-Generational Assembly

Preaching to a Multi-generational Assembly

Andrew Carl Wisdom, OP

With the acceleration of technological change, new and distinct generations are created faster than before. Generational boundaries become more fluid. Multiple age groups have different generational mindsets, distinct worldviews, and varied spiritual needs. How, then, do preachers speak to congregations that comprise four to five separate generations? Preaching to a Multi-generational Assembly addresses how to effectively and credibly preach to all generations at the same time. In Preaching to a Multi-generational Assembly Andrew Carl Wisdom offers a credible, new homiletic model to make Catholic preaching more exciting, accessible, and effective for both the assembly and preacher by making it more generationally relevant. He reflects upon the current state of preaching through Catholic and Protestant voices. He argues from communication theory that generation is a subculture like ethnicity and race and should be seriously considered in homiletic preparation. He applies contemporary marketing segmentation theory to preaching in proposing a qualified "generational segmentation" of the Sunday assembly. Finally, he combines both theories to demonstrate both the opportunity and viability of intergenerational preaching in a Catholic context. Chapters are “Why Effective Preaching Is a Priority: The Problem,” “The Genesis of the Catholic Homily,” “Intergenerational Preaching as a Sacred Dance Between Culture, Language, and Meaning,” “What the Preacher Can Learn from the Marketer,” “The Catholic Sacramental Imagination: A Generational Bridge,” “Does It Work? The Mechanics of Intergenerational Preaching,” and “So What.” Includes tables, graphs, and a conclusion with practical suggestions on how to become an effective and credible intergenerational preacher. Andrew Carl Wisdom, OP, DMin, is a preacher and promoter of vocations for the Dominicans, Province of St. Albert the Great. Besides extensive campus ministry involvement, Fr. Wisdom has given retreats to parishes, diocesan clergy, and religious novices. The sixth eldest in a family of thirteen, Father Wisdom has first hand experience of intergenerational dynamics, crediting his passion for preaching to his upbringing.
