Compact and concise, this book is intended for all seeking the Lord and who use scripture as a source of prayer and reflection. It will supplement and help Deacons and Lay Ministers in their task of making the Word relevant to their Church communities.Sowing Seeds from the Gospels may be conveniently used by scripture study groups for preparation of God's Word each Sunday. Homilies are short and yet have ability to engender new ideas and thoughts for discussion. It is an excellent aid for those preparing to enter the faith of all Christian Churches and for youth groups in their on going education in strengthening and renewing their faith during formative years.Sowing Seeds from the Gospels is also helpful to senior citizens longing and struggling for more.

The author of Sowing Seeds from the Gospels has taken the Sunday readings and laid them open for everyone to enjoy. It is delightful to relish his excitement in the way he offers his message and the insights that he makes in simple and down-to-earth language. There is one lesson that he not only carries throughout the well thoughtful homily but also allows one to carry it throughout the week. I believe this book will not only be helpful for those who are looking for ideas for their own preaching but for anyone who wishes to prepare oneself for the Sunday liturgy. It can serve as a source of reflection and prayer far into the week. Thus the layperson in the pew and the ordained ministers will find this most helpful in deepening one''''''''s insights to the Sunday readings as well as a means of growing spiritually. I have enjoyed it and I recommend it as a sourcebook and also prayerbook. TH
