(PUBSPCK)A member of the College of Preachers who has been known to preach four different sermons each Sunday among the churches around Derby, Critchlow first finds a focus verse, then shows how to link the readings. Her sermons, which have won awards in the U.K., follow the 3-year Anglican lectionary cycle. 176 pages, softcover.
'Preaching on the Common Worship Lectionary' is an ideal resource for anyone called to preach in the Anglican Communion, whether lay or ordained. It covers the whole three-year cycle, concentrating on the readings for the principal service, and major saints' days. A lively introduction gives down-to-earth advice on how to reach, by looking at approach and technique. This section will prove refreshing to seasoned preachers, and will hearten those with considerably less experience. The main part of the book provides a focus verse and suggestions on how to link the readings for each Sunday's principal service. Its illustrations and reflections draw on the home and personal relationships, our contemporary experience of work and leisure, the world of nature, the human situation and Christian symbols and imagery. Invigorating and inspiring, 'Preaching on the Common Worship Lectionary' recognizes the responsibility of those called to preach God's word, and encourages us to hope and pray that through our human voices, a divine message will indeed be heard.
