When the words "great homily" come to mind, the name Bill Bausch inevitably pops up. This book is evidence of that. It contains 116 new, never before published original homilies plus 39 previously published ones now out of print. In addition to homilies reflecting the liturgical year, there are special occasion homilies for holy days, holidays and other celebrations. All are shaped around stories in imitation of the Bible, itself essentially a story book. This book is not only a great resource for homilists but also a source of spiritual reading, a two to three page treasure trove for anyone wanting to ponder Scripture in deeper and reflective ways on a daily basis.
William J. Bausch is a retired priest of the Diocese of Trenton, New Jersey, who works at a local parish and continues to give lectures, retreats, and days and evening of reflection. He is author of A World of Stories for Preachers and Teachers and Touching the Heart: Tales for the Human Journey, both available from Twenty-Third Publications.
