“Hungry” gets a little buzz

A few weeks back, I posted on the collection of homilies to which I contributed, “Hungry and You Fed Me.”  Now, The Times of Trenton has written about it, plugging an upcoming book signing (I’ll be there, so if you’re in New Jersey, come on by and say hello!):

Fifteen homilists of various Christian denominations from across the greater Mercer County region, Pennsylvania and beyond have banded together to create a sprawling collection of homilies for every week in the liturgical year.

The book, titled ‘Hungry, And You Fed Me,’ is available to purchase online for $20 and all the proceeds go toward four charities in the region: the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen and Women’s Space in Mercer County; Several Sources, a charity in Ramsey for pregnant teens; and the Cranaleith Spiritual Center in Philadelphia.

Jim Knipper, a deacon at St. Paul Roman Catholic Church in Princeton and editor of the book, said they’ve sold about 750 copies so far, raising about $2,000.

Checks to the four charities have already been delivered, Knipper said.

Since the book went on sale in November, feedback has been very favorable, with purchases from all over, including Canada, he said.

“I think what makes it attractive is the diversity of the book’s contributors and what they bring to it,” Knipper said.
