Insightful Homilies Sep 17, 2001
Through this book Thomas Keating, a Trappist monk offers food for thought to the materialistically oriented world of today with 30 very insightful homilies. They are randomly selected homilies, based on the events in Jesus' ministry, his teachings and other celebrations in the Church. The endeavor to make the scriptures relevant to the everyday life of the faithful is indeed praiseworthy. This book would provide valuable spiritual reading and help for personal reflection on the Biblical texts as well as some resource for preaching.
