Now available in paperback, this volume of Feasting on the Word is intended for lectionary use in Year C, Advent through Transfiguration. Furthermore, the volume also contains an index, making it useful for preachers and teachers who are not working from the lectionary schedule but wanting to make use of its unique content.
About the Series:
With this new lectionary commentary series, Westminster John Knox offers the most extensive resource for preaching on the market today. The twelve volumes of the series 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 follow the pattern of the Revised Common Lectionary, each volume contains an index of biblical passages so that nonlectionary preachers, as well as teachers and students, may make use of its contents.
