WORLD OF STORIES FOR PREACHERS AND TEACHERS by William Bausch
350 stories which range in length from a few pages to a few paragraphs. All of the stories aim to nudge, provoke and stimulate the reader and the listener to resonate with the human condition, as did the stories of Jesus. They originate from different cultural settings and literary genre (legends, Scripture, lives of lthe saints, folk tales, family stories, etc.). Your heart and spirit will be moved by tales such as "The Tin Box", St. Francis and the wolf, the sandpiper to bring you joy, the young man's escape to freedom on Christmas Eve, the "Angel Song", St. Alexander, "Ragman" and "The Doctor" (a true story of compassion and respect). A comprehensive thematic index makes this an indispensable resource for homilists. Also includes 22 new homilies from Fr. William J. Bausch, author of "Storytelling the Word", "More Telling Stories" and "Telling Stories", among others. 516 pp.
