How do we bring the word of God to life for our assembly at Mass? 
What makes the readings speak to each one personally? 

This book gives suggestions on how to prepare and gives examples of actual techniques. The book establishes the ministry of lector in relationship to the assembly and develops the concept of proclaiming as a faith witness. Although the title references the ministry of lector, the principles and techniques will be helpful to deacons, presiders, catechists, and all who proclaim God's word.
