Publisher's Description

This is the final volume in a unique new commentary series that helps the preacher identify and reflect on the social implications of the biblical readings in the Revised Common Lectionary. The essays concentrate on the themes of social justice in the weekly texts and how those themes can be teachable moments for preaching social justice in the church.

In addition to the lectionary days, there are essays for twenty-two "Holy Days of Justice," including Martin Luther King Day, Earth Day, World AIDS Day, and Children's Sabbath. These days are intended to enlarge the church's awareness of God's call for justice and of the many ways that call comes to the church and world today.

Editorial Reviews

"This visionary series works like a new pair of glasses, helping preachers and their listeners focus on what has always been right in front of us: namely, that every single passage of the Bible speaks to the social dimension of God's life-giving purposes."
—Barbara Brown Taylor, Butman Professor of Religion, Piedmont College, and Adjunct Professor of Christian Spirituality, Columbia Theological Seminary

"The book surely holds promise of transformative energy for the preaching, teaching, interpreting work of the church. Welcome indeed!"
—Walter Brueggemann, Professor Emeritus, Columbia Theological Seminary

"Preaching God's Transforming Justice motivates and equips worship planners, ministers, and preachers to use a prophetic voice when speaking about the kingdom of God on earth and the justice of love, peace, and mutual respect."
