Emphasizing both spiritual and practical preparation, this book will help both experienced and beginning lectors develop their understanding of the ministry of proclaiming the word of God as well as the skills needed to do it well. Wallace offers insight to various aspects of the lector's work (job, ministry, vocation), and reflects on the mystery of God who speaks to-and through-us in the Word. It includes an accessible explanation of important concepts related to the Lectionary and the liturgy, ideas for spiritual preparation before serving as lector, concrete guidance for ongoing skill development, and a handy pronunciation guide.

James A. Wallace, CSsR, is author of Preaching to the Hungers of the Heart: The Homily on the Feasts and within the Rites and coauthor of Lift Up Your Hearts, Homilies for the A, B, and C Cycles (Paulist Press).
