Feasting on the Word

When it comes to feasting on the Word, we preachers have learned that there are no better guides than Barbara Brown Taylor and David Bartlett. . . . A wonderful resource in the weekly task of serving up the Word to Gods hungry people. —William H. Willimon, United Methodist Bishop and author Feasting on the Word should be a delight for all those obligated to preach Sunday after Sunday. Wonderfully organized and intelligently shaped, these reflections on Scripture are sure to be a valuable aid for those in ministry. —Stanley Hauerwas, Professor of Theological Ethics, Duke University Divinity School At last—a genuinely moveable feast that will bring delight to the palate of preachers everywhere! . . . This hearty meal will nurture and inspire preachers to become better chefs themselves—preparing nutritious and satisfying sermons for those who come to worship, eager to be fed. —Leonora Tubbs Tisdale, Professor of Homiletics, Yale Divinity School With this new lectionary commentary series, Westminster John Knox Press offers one of the most extensive resources for preaching on the market today. When complete, the twelve volumes of the series will 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. They might focus on the Gospel

Advent through Transfiguration. With this popular new lectionary commentary series, Westminster John Knox Press offers one of the most extensive resources for preaching on the market today. When complete, the twelve volumes of the series will cover all the Sundays in the three-year lectionary cycle, along with movable occasions. For each lectionary text, preachers will find four brief essays one each on the theological, pastoral, exegetical, and homiletical challenges of the text. Preachers might focus on the Gospel text, for instance, by reading all four essays provided for that text, or they might explore connections between the Hebrew Bible, Psalm, Gospel, and Epistle texts by reading the theological essays for each one. Each lectionary year will consist of four volumes, one for the Advent and Christmas season, one for Lent and Easter, and one for each half of Ordinary Time.
In Ordinary Time, the Old Testament lections in Feasting on the Word are from the complementary stream for Year A, split between the complementary and semicontinuous streams for Year B, and from the semicontinuous stream for Year C. Essays on the alternate lections will be available on the Feasting on the Word web site beginning for Year C in May 2010.
