A new book, Perspectives on Preaching: A Witness of the Irish Church, published by Church of Ireland Publishing (CIP) in conjunction with the Church of Ireland Theological Institute (CITI), will be launched by the Bishop of Derry & Raphoe, in the Music Room of Christ Church cathedral, Dublin, next Monday evening at 5.30pm. With contributions from a wide range of notable preachers and thinkers, the book has been edited by Canon Maurice Elliott (Director of CITI) and the Revd Dr Patrick McGlinchey (Lecturer in Missiology and Pastoral Studies at CITI).

The book engages with the themes of preaching scripture, denominational charisms and preaching to the culture, across twelve different chapters. In addition to the editors, the contributors include three bishops, the Archbishop of Armagh, the Bishop of Down & Dromore and the Bishop of Kilmore, Elphin & Ardagh; Katie Heffelfinger from CITI and her former colleague, Canon Patrick Comerford; the Revd Barry Forde, Chaplain in QUB; and the Revd Dr Robin Stockitt, Rector of Donemana. There are contributions also from outside the Church of Ireland by the Revd Dr Shane Crombie, Curate of Tullamore; the Revd Dr Brian Fletcher, Minister of Cullybackey Methodist Church; and the Rt Revd Dr Trevor Morrow, Minister Emeritus of Lucan Presbyterian Church.
