Publisher's Description

This is the second of three volumes in a unique commentary series that helps the preacher identify and reflect on the social implications of the biblical readings in the Revised Common Lectionary. The essays concentrate on the themes of social justice in the weekly texts and how those themes can be teachable moments for preaching social justice in the church.

In addition to the lectionary days, there are essays for twenty-two "Holy Days for Justice," including Martin Luther King Day, Earth Day, World AIDS Day, and Children's Sabbath. These days are intended to enlarge the church's awareness of God's call for justice and of the many ways that call comes to the church and world today.

Editorial Reviews

"A rousing reminder of what preaching justice is all about. Read it for the good of Christ's body or for your own soul's health. You won't be sorry you did." Barbara Brown Taylor, Columbia Theological Seminary and Piedmont College
