Preaching to Latinos
Welcoming the Hispanic Moment in the U.S. Church
Learning Spanish—while helpful—is not enough. There are intercultural competencies that can only be developed through practice, but it also helps already-busy clergy to have a concise guide. In addition to knowing the scholarly literature on cross-cultural preaching and Hispanic culture, Father Michael Kueber has twenty years of experience serving first generation Hispanic immigrants and their second generation children. In Preaching to Latinos, Kueber provides the readers with best practices for preaching to and leading their churches. As a member of an ecumenical community, he is able to speak to members of all Christian denominations.
About the Authors
"I am grateful to Fr. Michael I. Kueber for his book, Preaching to Latinos: Welcoming the Hispanic Moment in the U.S. Church. As a seminary professor and formation advisor for candidates for the ministerial priesthood, Fr. Kueber's text is a blessing to me in my ministry. By offering his considerable experience as a parish priest, Fr. Kueber gives the non-Latino community, many of whom will be future priests, a real insight into exactly who parish families are (and will be). I will certainly be recommending this text to the seminarians, lay ministerial students and diaconal candidates whom I teach."—John P. Cush, STD, Editor-in-Chief, Homiletic and Pastoral Review
"The transition from largely immigrant to mostly U.S.-born or U.S.-reared generations of Latinas and Latinos requires renewed pastoral vision and strategies. Effective preaching across generations is at the heart of this renewal. Michael Kueber provides valuable practical guidance for preachers and other pastoral leaders as we accompany our changing faith communities."—Timothy Matovina, author of Latino Catholicism: Transformation in America's Largest Church
