Product Description

Although Paul's letter to the Romans is the most theologically charged writing of the New Testament, it is rarely preached from Catholic pulpits. Perhaps some of the Pauline themes redemption and sanctification, justification and reconciliation, resurrection and parousia seem too daunting for homiletic purposes.

Not so, insists Frank Matera, who has learned to preach in a Pauline key that has invigorated the whole of his preaching. Homilists who heretofore have avoided Romans will appreciate Matera's insights on this text that open innovative and important ways of proclaiming the gospel. This slender volume is a gift to homilists who wish to preach from Romans with greater confidence and to proclaim Paul's theologically rich and assuring message of God s saving grace.

Editorial Reviews

[I] would hope that the energy and passion which Paul had for Jesus and his life in us would find joy and a sense of mission as a result of the careful study of Preaching Romans.

Pastoral Music

This is a very thorough and helpful resource that might encourage Catholic preachers to try homilies based on Paul’s letters rather than always turning to the gospel text.
The Bible Today

Homilists who have avoided preaching Paul’s powerful but daunting Letter to the Romans needn’t shirk their duty any longer. Matera’s book does it all—biblical exposition, sample homilies with post-delivery analysis, and explicit strategies for preparing homilies. This is a rare and valuable pastoral resource written by one of the best contemporary Catholic interpreters of Paul. A ‘must have’ reference for preachers! Also valuable for anyone wanting to know more about Romans and its message for today.
Ronald D. Witherup, SS, Author of Biblical Fundamentalism: What Every Catholic Should Know (Liturgical Press)

Once again, Fr. Matera proves that he should be ranked among our best guides for preaching Paul. This small volume on Romans ingeniously outlines homiletic strategies for the liturgical year that is altogether lucid, well organized and pastoral. Matera’s vast experience as both a biblical scholar and minister of the Word discloses itself on every page.
Guerric DeBona, OSB, Professor of Homiletics, Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology
