  • Those who preach the Word, those who proclaim it from a lectern and those who hear it should all find something in this collection of relections to inspire them to greater appreciation of the mystery of Gods Word. The reflections are developed around eight themes: "Jesus began to preach" addresses the mystery of the Word in salvation history; "Go and proclaim the Gospel" makes the connection between the Word and the Church; "When I found your words..." speaks to those who proclaim the Word; "We preach Christ Jesus as Lord" reflects on the content of Christian preaching; "For every careless word..." warns against confusing human words with the divine Word; "You will receive power from the Holy Spirit" affirms the role of the Holy Spirit in the proclamation of the Word; "Welcome the Word" affirms the place of Gods Word in our everyday lives; and "The letter brings death but the Spirit gives life" attests to the role of the Spirit in the interpretation of the Bible and in the life of the Church.
