Overview

Preaching the Poetry of the Gospels demonstrates that not only the Fourth Gospel but also the Synoptics can be read with understanding when they are interpreted as narrative poetry. For the Sundays of Advent, Holy Family, Epiphany, Lent and Easter, as well as the special days of the Immaculate Conception, Christmas Eve and Day, Ash Wednesday, the Triduum, the Holy Trinity, and the Holy Body and Blood of Christ, the author offers a poet's reflection on the literary devices in the liturgical texts and a gathering of poems about the gospel event.
