Sunday Comes Every Week: Daily Habits for the Busy Preacher
Frank G. Honeycutt
For pastors, a new sermon comes every week. Conventional wisdom says that pastors need to sequester themselves to prepare their weekly sermon without distraction. But veteran preacher Frank Honeycutt suggests just the opposite: prepare your sermons as part of a daily, lived experience in the community.
Using the days of the week as a framework, Honeycutt describes practical and essential tasks leading up to the writing and delivery of the Sunday sermon—habits that will provide lasting spiritual nourishment for pastors who plan for a long career in parish ministry.
Honeycutt reflects on the joys and hazards of ministry and explains how a faithful process of preaching shapes pastors for a lifetime of healthy ministry.

The Crisis of Bad Preaching: Redeeming the Heart and Way of the Catholic Preacher
Joshua J. Whitfield
A response to a pastoral crisis: poorly prepared, often stale, and largely irrelevant homilies that are fuelling the mass exodus of people from the Church.
Echoing Popes Benedict and Francis, the author confronts what is perhaps the most common complaint of Catholics around the world: hollow, vacuous preaching. A parish priest in Dallas, Whitfield encourages fellow preachers to profound renewal, reminding them that preaching is not just something they do, it is essential to who they are.
Catholic preaching today often achieves the opposite of what it should, which is connecting the People of God with the Gospel of Christ in a motivating way. Whitfield stresses that preachers need to return to this ideal because the wellbeing of the Church depends on it.
