With this new lectionary commentary series, Westminster John Knox offers the most extensive resource 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. This gives preachers sixteen different approaches to the proclaimation of the Word on any given occasion. The editors and contributors to this series are world-class scholars, pastors, and writers representing a variety of denominations and traditions. And while the twelve volumes of the series will follow the pattern of the Revised Common Lectionary, each volume will contain an index of biblical passages so that nonlectionary preachers, as well as teachers and students, may make use of its contents.
David L. Bartlett is Professor of New Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia. He is the author of What's Good about This News: Preaching the Gospel from Galatians and coeditor of the Westminster Bible Companion series.
Barbara Brown Taylor is Harry R. Butman Professor of Religion and Philosophy at Piedmont College in Piedmont, Georgia and Adjunct Professor of Christian Spirituality at Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia. She is the author of many books, including An Altar in the World. She is an at-large editor for The Christian Century and a sometime commentator on Georgia Public Radio.
"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 "Perhaps the most imaginative commentary on the Revised Common Lectionary to date. A unique and remarkable commentary that stands head and shoulders above the rest." The Living Church "A wonderful resource in the weekly task of serving up the Word to God's hungry people." William H. Willimon, United Methodist Bishop and author "These substantial and beautifully produced volumes address the reader with all the gravitas and grace that preaching deserves. Feasting on the Word will richly repay your investment." The Christian Century
