The Grace and Task of Preaching
Editor: Michael Monshau, O.P., is professor of homiletics at the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California.

What is the point of preaching?Is it possible to preach helpfully on moral questions?

Can preaching learn anything from adult education? How does preaching relate to a life of prayer or contemplation? Why did Vatican II insist on the value of liturgical preaching? How does preaching relate to critical biblical study?

Timothy Radcliffe, Mary Catherine Hilkert, Albert Nolan, and Paul Murray are among the team of 18 scholars from Ireland, Britain, the USA, the Philippines, South Africa and Australia who address these and similar questions.

These authors, skilled in biblical studies, theology and history, and personally committed to the duty and craft of preaching, help explore the implications of what the preacher attempts to do. They recognise both the challenge and the joy of having a part in the grace and task of preaching.

These essays are prepared and published as a tribute to Damian Byrne, O.P. (1929-1996), eighty-third successor to St Dominic in the post of Master of the Order of Preachers.
