A World of Stories for Preachers and Teachers should be in the hands of every preacher, storyteller, teacher, and reader--indeed, every person seeking to impart or gain wisdom. The comprehensive thematic index makes this an indispensable resource for homilists.

Did you know that the "Twelve Days of Christmas" is a religious code in song? Or that a sandpiper comes to bring us joy? Have you read the story of St. Francis and the wolf? Or "The Angel Song," the story of a young man's escape to freedom on Christmas Eve? These newest tales (350!) from Fr. Bausch are not just a plateful of "literary twinkies" but an immense and varied menu with rich meals, wholesome lunches, and snacks, and even "Playful Fare."

These stories range in length from several pages to several on one page. All of the stories aim to nudge, provoke, and stimulate the reader and listener to resonate with the human condition, as did the stories of Jesus. They originate from different cultural settings and literary genre (legends, Scripture, lives of the saints, folk tales, family stories). Your heart and spirit will be moved by tales such as "The Tin Box," a gentle parable about memories; "St. Alexander," the story of the charcoal burner who was made a bishop; Ragman, a moving allegory of redemption; and The Doctor, a true story of compassion and respect.

A World of Stories for Preachers and Teachers should be in the hands of every preacher, storyteller, teacher, and reader--indeed, every person seeking to impart or gain wisdom. The comprehensive thematic index makes this an indispensable resource for homilists.
