Teach, Delight, Persuade: Scriptural Homilies for Years A, B, and C contains homilies drawn from all three reading cycles for the Sundays and solemn feasts of the liturgical year. These accessible and practical homilies are intended primarily for priests and deacons who preach at Catholic celebrations of the Eucharist.

The homilies concentrate on the core message of the Old Testament reading, the psalm, the New Testament reading, and the Gospel.

  • The homilies are short and catechetical in approach.
  • Each homily covers a brief analysis of the intent of the scripture writer, the historical significance of the period, and practical application of the scripture to contemporary life.
  • In addition to pastors and deacons, this book is also an ideal pastoral resource for many lay ministers who make use of the Sunday readings when they teach the word of God: directors of religious education, leaders of inquiry groups (such as RCIA), scripture study group facilitators, prayer groups, and religion teachers.
  • The homilies are the result of 50 years of preaching and several years of research and pastoral experience.
  • The scriptural exegesis contained in the homilies flows from the profound scriptural insights of the last 50 years. All of these homilies reflect the social and religious concerns of the contemporary Church.
