by Perkins Center for Preaching Excellence on Tuesday, March 19, 2024

Welcome to another episode of Must Reads where the Reverend Dr. Maurice J. Nutt, C. a Redemptorist missionary priest and an adjunct professor of preaching and evangelization serving as a doctoral thesis advisor in the Doctor of Ministry of preaching program at Aquinas Institute of Theology in St. Louis, MO, discusses a very timely book: “Preaching Racial Justice.”

This is an interview between Dr. Alice McKenzie and Father Maurice Nutt about the book "Preaching Racial Justice," which Father Nutt co-edited with colleagues Father Gregory Heille and Dr. Deborah L. Wilhelm. The book aims to address racism and white supremacy within the Roman Catholic community and beyond, providing a resource for preaching and teaching on racial justice. Divided into three parts, the book includes essays by diverse contributors exploring personal experiences with racism, the importance of empathy, and the role of ancestors in challenging racial bias. Father Nutt highlights the significance of empathy and solidarity in combating racism, stressing that it is not just a problem for Black and Brown communities but for all Americans. He hopes the book will be used in seminary classrooms, congregational dialogues, and book clubs to foster awareness and discussion on racial justice issues.
