This is the second volume in a comprehensive three-volume set of commentaries on all of the lectionary texts for Sunday reading (including the Psalms) and for special days in all communions, treating the readings for each year in a single volume. Preaching Through the Christian Year volumes are based on the newly revised The Common Lectionary (1992) together with other readings kept in the Episcopal, Lutheran, and Roman Catholic churches. The set will prove useful also for those who do not follow the lectionary, since each volume provides commentaries on a vast number of texts and includes a complete index of those texts. "Simply put, the best commentary series on the best lectionary. An unusual blend of biblical and homiletical skills." James F. White "This could be the Interpreter's Bible for our generation. The comments are succinct and satisfying on all counts." David H. C. Read The authors of this important series teach at Candler School of Theology at Emory University, Atlanta, and are renowned scholars in their particular disciplines-preaching and Hebrew Bible and New Testament studies.
