Geoff Plant's homilies teach by surprise. In each, he first devotes time to offer his knowledge of the biblical aspect of the given reading, from settings to scholarship. Then he invites us to share his delight in something from his own discovery of our contemporary secular world which has made its mark, from people to places. In a deft conclusion, he draws the two worlds together so we are suddenly, clearly and unforgettably instructed in holy understanding. Spiritual growth is the result. These homilies will be welcomed by priests and Church workers, students of Biblical Studies, Bible Study groups and individuals wishing to enrich their own spiritual understanding.


'I have called this collection of homilies Welcoming the Outsider, thereby sounding a note that resonates throughout Luke's gospel, and which is particularly evident in stories unique to Luke...In Luke's gospel, the final words that Jesus spoke from the cross to another human being were addressed to an outsider: "Today you will be with me in paradise." Jesus died as he had lived, welcoming the outsider.'
