Westminster John Knox Press Feasting on the Word: Year B, Volume 1: Advent through Transfiguration

Year B, Volume 1 in the Feasting on the Word commentary series covers the Season after Pentecost 1 (Advent-Transfiguration).

The Feasting on the Word series aids clergy in developing and preparing sermons in throughout the year in conjunction with the RCL. Each lectionary year consists of four volumes, one for the Advent and Christmas season, one for Lent and Easter, and one for each half of Ordinary Time. While the twelve volumes of the series follow the pattern of the Revised Common Lectionary, each volume contains an index of biblical passages so that non-lectionary preachers may make use of its contents.

The commentaries provide four essays for each of the assigned RCL passages, and through those essays highlight issues in exegesis, theology, homiletics, and pastoral care as they apply to and are derived from the text. The essays are concise and listed on four columns on facing pages for each RCL passage and extend in continued columns on to necessary additional pages. The biblical passage is listed above the essays on the first page. See Visual Representation More information is available at www.feastingontheword.net

I can not praise enough for what Barbara Brown Taylor has put together, to see Lectionary passages from four view points, a mine of gold, diamonds, emeralds, and rubies.
study your Bible passage first then, go to this series.

This entire series is perhaps the finest commentary available for those who wish truly to preach the Revised Common Lectionary. The four approaches, a "four-fold" interpretation of Holy Scripture -- theological, pastoral, exegetical, and homilectical -- provide a remarkable range of ideas, thoughts, and perspectives. Its "cast of characters" includes erudite scholars, professors and teachers, parish clergy, and lay thinkers, and this provides a wonderful richness. They come from a wide spectrum of Christians denominations. General Editors David L. Bartlett and Barbara Brown Taylor have done a good thing. Westminster John Knox Press is to be commended for the publication of the series.
