Product Description

Feasting on the Gospels is a new seven-volume series that follows up on the success of the Feasting on the Word series to provide another trusted preaching resource, this time on the most prominent and preached upon most preached upon books in the Bible: the four Gospels. With contributions from a diverse and respected group of scholars and pastors, Feasting on the Gospels includes completely new material that covers every single passage in the Gospels, making it suitable for both pastors who preach from the lectionary and pastors who do not. Moreover, these volumes incorporate the unique format of Feasting on the Word, giving preachers four perspectives to choose from for each Gospel passage: theological, pastoral, exegetical, and homiletical. Feasting on the Gospels offers a unique resource for all who preach, either continuously or occasionally, on the Gospels.

    Once again the editors of this new series from Westminster John Knox Press have built an excellent commentary using a multi-prong approach. Each Pericope is examined from four perspectives:

    1. Theological
    2. Pastoral
    3. Exegetical
    4. Homiletical

    The text can best be read using a paper edition or a tablet capable of displaying two pages (with two columns per page) adjacent to each other - as the four perspectives are designed to seen in parallel across two pages. Doing otherwise makes following the four separate essays a bit difficult to follow. It can be done, but it is not convenient. If the page design for reading on a small tablet or phone had been altered to allow each essay to be read in its entirety before moving on to a new perspective or pericope.

    As in the earlier volumes, the writing is well-done and useful to the man or woman preparing for the Sunday's pulpit. Because different authors are used for each of the four perspectives, the reader is presented with multiple ideas or approaches to the text. As I mentioned in previous reviews, I hope that this series of commentaries is extended to eventually cover the entire scripture, not merely the four Gospels. I look forward to coming volumes in the months ahead.
