  • So many people hear without listeningespecially to sermons. In this book Walter Burghardt, one of the countrys best preachers, moves to "the other side of the rail" and explains how to listen to the Word. Listening is a risk, an act of love, an act of being truly present and truly human.
    Burghardt begins by explaining the "Just Word"Gods plan for salvation taking place within a specific community. He then connects the Word to todays headlines to show how sermons are or can be immediately relevant. Finally, he offers a 4-step model that helps audiences listen more deeply to what Jesus is saying, to what the Church is saying, to what the world is sayingand then respond to what they hear. These are transcendental principles because they underlie all our categories and are ways in which we transcend ourselves.

    Written for a wide ecumenical audience, this book provides concrete help for both the people "in the pew" and the preacher whos trying to reach them. Its insightful reading for all Christian laity and all preachers and homilists. Its also very useful for clergy and religious, teachers of homiletics, pastoral ministers, seminarians, and anyone involved or interested in social justice.
