Robert P. Waznak's An Introduction to the Homily is a worthy reflection of his more than twenty-five years as a professor of homiletics. This Introduction will benefit both experienced and new preachers, serving to lead them more deeply into an understanding of the challenging task that preaching entails. . . . This book deserves a place on the top shelf of every person called to preach the gospel, to be read for information and transformation.James A. Wallace, CSsR An Introduction to the Homily is a synthetic work, designed to explore what the homily is, rather than how to preach a homily. . . . Lucidly written, rich in pithy quotations and eminently practical, this book deserves an honored place in Roman Catholic preachers' libraries not to occupy space, but to be read and meditated upon.John Allyn Melloh, John S. Marten Program in Homiletics and Liturgics, Department of Theology, University of Notre Dame . . . engrossing and illuminating. . . . This challenges not only the homilist, but also those who listen to homilies not just how to hear a homily but how to offer critique to a homilist who seeks it.Roland E. Murphy, OCarm In An Introduction to the Homily Waznak fills a lacuna in Roman Catholic homiletics with a text that deals with the evolution from sermon to homily, with images of the preachers, and pros and cons of Lectionary use. . . . Waznak has made a valuable contribution for teachers of preaching and their students.Joan Delaplane, OP [T]his slim volume is bulging with homiletic insights. Readers receive a brief history of preaching and more. They also get a solid theory of what the homily should be, prominent models of preaching, and pastorally sensitive responses to frequently asked questions about how to preach.Ronald D. Witherup, SS Robert Waznak's An Introduction to the Homily is far more than another set of basics; it is a treasure-trove, in the tradition of Buttrick and Brueggemann, Craddock and Hilkert. Not only does he use to splendid effect an amazing amount of pertinent homiletic literature, official and other; he has precious insights of his own. . . . Tiro and veteran, get hold of it. Satisfaction guaranteed.Walter J. Burghardt, SJ
