Series: Feasting on the Word
With this new lectionary commentary series, Westminster John Knox offers the most extensive resource for preaching on the market today. When complete, the twelve volumes of the series will cover all the Sundays in the three-year lectionary cycle, along with movable occasions, such as Christmas Day, Epiphany, Holy Week, and All Saints' Day.
For each lectionary text, preachers will find four brief essays--one each on the theological, pastoral, exegetical, and homiletical challenges of the text. This gives preachers sixteen different approaches to the proclaimation of the Word on any given occasion.
The editors and contributors to this series are world-class scholars, pastors, and writers representing a variety of denominations and traditions. And while the twelve volumes of the series will follow the pattern of the Revised Common Lectionary, each volume will contain an index of biblical passages so that nonlectionary preachers, as well as teachers and students, may make use of its content.

John Via5 Stars Out Of 5February 26, 2009John ViaThis entire series is perhaps the finest commentary available for those who wish truly to preach the Revised Common Lectionary. The four approaches, a "four-fold" interpretation of Holy Scripture -- theological, pastoral, exegetical, and homilectical -- provide a remarkable range of ideas, thoughts, and perspectives. Its "cast of characters" includes erudite scholars, professors and teachers, parish clergy, and lay thinkers, and this provides a wonderful richness. They come from a wide spectrum of Christians denominations. General Editors David L. Bartlett and Barbara Brown Taylor have done a good thing. Westminster John Knox Press is to be commended for the publication of the series.
