Effective Preaching: Bringing People into an Encounter with God is a practical collection of essays, featuring leading preachers, homilists and homily instructors. Compiled by Michael E. Connors, CSC, the Director of the John Marten Program in Homiletics and Liturgics at the University of Notre Dame, this imaginative book focuses entirely on the practical side of Catholic preaching. It will provide imaginative, hands-on, tested advice to help homilists develop preaching effectiveness, using techniques that will turn satisfactory preaching into exceptional preaching. This practical resource will be essential for priests, permanent deacons, seminarians in homiletics classes; retreat leaders, RCIA catechists; all who preach.

“These essays highlight the many tools the preacher has available to effect a change in the listener. Language, story, gesture, and more can all be powerfully effective in preaching. The practical lessons offered here will be invaluable in helping preachers of all levels—from the seminary student practicing in the classroom to the expert seasoned by years in the pulpit—be truly effective in setting the earth on fire with the Word of God.”

Rev. David Mowry, MDIV, STL
Instructor in the Department of Biblical Studies and Homiletics University of St. Mary of the Lake / Mundelein Seminary



“Preaching represents one of the most important ministries in the life of a priest or deacon. It enables him to reach out and touch his listeners by unfolding the Good News within the context of the liturgy. Effective Preaching: Bringing People into an Encounter with God,with its variety of fine contributions, represents a veritable toolbox for the experienced and inexperienced homilist alike. With selections from the spiritual to the practical, there’s something here for anyone who preaches. It’s well worth the read.”

Deacon Dominic Cerrato, PHD
