Product Description

During the four decades since Vatican II the Catholic community has been transformed into a Bible reading, Bible praying church which continues to attract new or renewed members. This book contributes to the Gospel in its liturgical context by offering ideas and perspectives that are useful for preaching or in personal prayer and reflection. The commentaries on the lectionary reading in this book first appeared as a popular weekly column in America, covering Cycle B. Since some of the Sundays in the Cycle were displaced by particular feasts, reflections on these Sundays have also been added. Hearing the Word of God includes Scripture readings for the Sunday, followed by a reflection on the reading and concludes with "Praying with Scripture," a series of questions and meditations to guide readers in making a personal application of the reflection.

Editorial Reviews

The reflections provide important literary and historical analyses of these Sundays readings.
The Bible Today

A distinguished New Testament scholar and preacher, Donahue is the perfect guide to the Sunday Scripture readings in the Year B. Behind his concise and always fresh comments on the texts are his many years of research on Mark's Gospel and his remarkable ability to bring it to bear on Christian life today. This volume is a great resource for all who pray and preach on Scripture."
