Product Description

An unprecedented, monumental work, the three-volume Lectionary Commentary offers superb exegetical essays on 513 biblical texts from the Revised Common Lectionary spanning the three-year liturgical cycle. Written by seventy-eight pastors, priests, and teachers from a variety of Christian traditions, these essays are meant primarily to serve as exegetical "jump starts" for busy preachers.

Including every Sunday of the church year as well as special holidays, The Lectionary Commentary arranges the biblical texts in canonical order, making it useful to all preachers, not just those who follow the lectionary. These three volumes aim throughout to answer the question, "What does the preacher need to know about this text in ourder to preach a faithful sermon from it?" Each essay closely considers its specific biblical text and provides insightful theological reflection while remaining alert to our contemporary context.

The present volume, The Third Readings: The Gospels, covers the lectionary readings from Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Unique to this volume is an excellent essay by C. Clifton Black on Augustinian preaching and the nurture of Christians.

Publisher's Description


Preaching pastors, ministers, and priests know how quickly Sundays come and go. The Lectionary Commentary will not slow the pace of the weekly calendar, but it will help assure that sermon preparation begins with a solid engagement with Scripture. Designed to "jump start" the difficult task of sermon preparation, this indispensable three-volume work gathers exegetical essays on biblical texts from the Revised Common Lectionary. Covering every Sunday of the three-year liturgical cycle, as well as Christmas Day, Epiphany, and Ascension Day, the readings are arranged in canonical order so as to be of use to all preachers.

Seventy-eight pastors, priests, and teachers from a variety of Christian traditions have contributed their insights to The Lectionary Commentary. Designed to answer the question What does the preacher need to know about this text in order to preach a faithful sermon from it?, each of their essays closely considers its specific biblical text, all the while remaining alert to the contemporary context in which the sermon will be spoken and heard. The result is an invaluable resource that will aid in the difficult task of facilitating a meaningful encounter between Holy Scripture and our modern world.

This volume, The Third Readings: The Gospels, provides exegetical commentary on the lectionary readings for the witnesses to Jesus Christ written by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Also unique to this volume is an excellent essay by C. Clifton Black on Augustinian preaching and the nurture of Christians.
