Westminster John Knox Press Texts for Preaching on CD-ROM: A Lectionary Commentary Based on the NRSV--Years A, B, and C

This best-selling lectionary commentary series is now available for the first time in electronic format, making it easily accessible for sermon and worship bulletin preparation. This series of three volumes provides resources for an entire year of sermons and offers help for preachers and others who use the Revised Common Lectionary. Beginning with Advent, this unique and comprehensive resource deals with lectionary texts for Years A, B, and C.

Each of the four texts is treated—the Old Testament, Psalter, Gospel, and Epistle—for each Sunday and the important festival days. An introduction for the day indicates the general thrust of the texts and the relationships among them, emphasizing the interpretation of the texts themselves. Also included are suggestions concerning the implications of the texts for life today.
