Front Cover
University of Scranton Press, 2005 - Catholic preaching - 228 pages
"Preaching the Teaching represents an important step forward in the field of homiletics because it seeks to educate those who preach to Hispanic congregations. It concentrates on seven key themes with which those preachers can enrich their pastoral message and in the spirit of Catholic social justice tradition help their communities deal with specific issues: domestic violence, capital punishment, racism, immigration, the economy, the social mission of the parish, and the Gospel of Life." "Preaching the Teaching is a valuable resource for all those who prepare homilies of Hispanic congregations and seek to emphasize and proclaim Catholic social justice teaching in their preaching."--BOOK JACKET.
