Item description for Once Upon a Gospel: Inspiring Homilies and Insightful Reflections by William J. Bausch...

When the words "great homily" come to mind, the name Bill Bausch inevitably pops up. And, by his own admission, this is his "best homily book ever." Coming from a great homilist, that's saying something! Almost all of these homilies are new, never before published, and all are original. In addition to homilies reflecting the liturgical year, there are special occasion homilies for holy days, holidays, and other celebrations. There are funeral homilies that offer unique ways a homilist can confront the mystery of death, and there is a section called "Twice Told Tales," homilies that have been previously published but are now out of print. All are shaped and finessed with stories--and why not? The Bible itself is essentially a story book. As Bausch himself says, "We never exhaust the meaning of a good story. The reason is because stories deal in myth, symbol, and metaphor that resonate in the deeper fissures of our hearts. There is never a last word to a story. Truth wrapped in story is irresistible--and that's why I use stories." These homilies are irresistible as well! This is a great resource for homilists, of course, but also for all those who want to ponder Scripture in deeper and fresher ways. It is--no question about it--Father Bill Bausch's best homily book ever.

Reviews - What do customers think about Once Upon a Gospel: Inspiring Homilies and Insightful Reflections?

Good blend of new and old stories  Jan 27, 2009
Father Bausch always tells the story from a new vantage point and this compilation has a good blend of new (mostly) and old homilies. His suggestion to bounce around in the book, rather than reading from front to back, is a good one. Although some build on others, most are independent and provide ample challenges to the way we view life, family, faith and responsibilities, all with a touch of humor.
