Item description for Preacher As Risk Taker by Donald B. Cozzens & Richard Hart...

Overview
Many individuals take risks in life as mountain climbers, magicians, farmers, and gamblers. But do we ever include preachers in that category? Preachers have opportunities to be some of the greatest risk takers. In Preacher as Risk Taker, Richard Hart challenges preachers to be on the cutting edge by taking risks resulting in better preaching. How many preachers are willing to submit their homilies to an editor or have their homilies taped? Are poetic preachers ready to preach in a changing Church? How often do preachers discuss social sin, the environment, ageing, the reign of God, or Paul's epistles? Do today's preachers realize how important it is to preach through healing or Jesus as a wisdom figure? Finally, do preachers know the true difference between a eulogy and a homily? Father Hart offers insight to each of these questions for preachers interested in improving their homilies. Preachers might not be asked to scale a mountain or act as a magician. But preachers are asked to take similar risks when preaching on challenging topics. In Preacher as Risk Taker, Hart provides answers for those interested in becoming spirited preachers.

Reviews - What do customers think about Preacher As Risk Taker?

almost unique--sadly enough  Oct 27, 2005
Cozzens' book is particularly important because it uncovers the extent to which clerical culture in the Catholic Church is engaged in systematic denial of its weaknesses, and almost unique because Cozzens himself is a cleric and a former rector of a seminary, so he knows whereof he speaks. And, I imagine, is paying a certain price for his willingness to bring a few skeletons out of the closet. His approach is pragmatic, not ideological, and he can be accused neither of being a disaffected liberal nor a disgruntled ex-priest. Pay attention to what he says!
 
Disappointment  Dec 11, 2003
Despite its promising title, this book is a bust. It has no real unity. It is poorly written, and poorly organized. And the ideas are just so-so. I got it on sale and was sorry, even so, to have spent the money. Update: 12/14/05--Lakeland's positive review is obviously a mistake, since it is about another book (by Cuzzins).
