Foreword by Gilbert Ostdiek, OFM
128 pages, 8½" x 11"
Unlike any other lector training book Stop
Reading and Start
Proclaiming! bases its approach on the art of acting.
With ten chapters, each
explaining and teaching a skill to assist in proclamation, this
easy-to-read book will help you gain the technical expertise necessary
to invite active listening and pull attention away from those
missalettes. Your proclamation is a faith witness for your listeners.
Learn how to make that witness effectively and speak God’s word in a
way that can affect their lives. Every proclaimer (lector, presider,
and catechist) should have one of these. Then watch the proclamation of
the word improve in your parish.
“Speak to the weary a word that will rouse
them” (Is 50:4). Those who proclaim the word and those who prepare them
for this ministry will be able to reap great benefits from Stop
Reading and Start Proclaiming! Yet it is the assembly
gathered to hear God's word proclaimed who will surely benefit the
most. They deserve no less. From the Foreward by Gil Ostdiek, OFM,
professor of liturgy, Catholic Theological
This book is long overdue. During
Christian worship we hear “the word of the Lord.” Mr. Leal gives us the
opportunity to proclaim a “living word of the Lord” in our midst, not
the mere recitation of written words. Father John Cusick, director
of Young Adult Ministry Office, Archdiocese of Chicago
