by Jay Cormier

With Jesus' preaching and parables as the model for proclaiming the Good News, "Heaven Is Like . . ." demonstrates how a good homily includes the elements of story, connection, and invitation. More than a how-to manual, each chapter includes several sample homilies and practical suggestions and tips for conceiving, writing and preaching the homily. The book discusses body language, attitudes of invitation and welcome, and the many ways -- both verbal and nonverbal -- in which a preacher communicates.
