Item Description...
Overview
Prominent author and biblical scholar Elizabeth Achtemeier provides an outstanding preaching and study resource with this collection of brief expositions on all of the First Lesson texts contained in Cycle C of the Revised Common and Lutheran Lectionaries. Infused with her customary insight into the Hebrew scriptures, this compendium of Achtemeier's stimulating contributions to the preaching journal Emphasis furnishes a plethora of fruitful starting points for preparing sermons solidly rooted in the Bible yet connected to modern life. But as the book's title suggests, this volume isn't just for preachers and homiletics students -- it's also a powerful commentary for study groups and personal devotional reading. Achtemeier's unrelenting focus on the promises of God appearing in the Old Testament and fulfilled in the New Testament, combined with her outstanding scholarship, make these faith-filled essays an enriching resource for anyone who wants a clearer understanding of God's Word contained in the scriptures.

In this series of brief expositions, she exhibits her interpretive agility, her passion for the church, and her subtle judgments on a number of theological issues. Those faced with the weekly task of preaching will find rich and suggestive clues for letting the text have its say in the church.Walter BrueggemannWilliam Marcellus McPheeters Professor of Old TestamentColumbia Theological SeminaryWe preachers have learned that there are few better interpreters of the Old Testament than Elizabeth Achtemeier. Her homiletical interpretation is sure to strike fire in our imaginations and serve as a wonderful catalyst for great sermons from these passages. She really does enable us to preach texts from the Hebrew Bible in a new and delightful way.William H. WillimonDean of the Chapel and Professor of Christian MinistryDuke UniversityRenowned throughout the United States and Canada as a preacher, teacher, lecturer, and writer, Elizabeth Achtemeier authored 25 books, including the acclaimed Preaching From The Old Testamentand her autobiography, Not Til I Have Done: A Personal Testimony.

Get it, Buy it, Keep it!!  Apr 1, 2007
Elizabeth Achtemeier is a rare biblical commentator. This volume is part of a three volume series based on the Old Testament lections for the Revised Common Lectionary series; a compendium of previous remarks for the preaching magazine "Emphasis" that have been collated, edited and placed in a weekly column on the Old Testament lesson for that particular week (either in year A, B, or C). The whole set is a wonderful addition for the pastor who does not want to simply stick with the New Testament readings. Professor Achtemeier has done us all a service; I've purchased the three volumes have used them repeatedly and had my own faith nourished while preparing sermons for my congregation. Her remarks are sound, exegetically accurate, theologically informed, and her directions for how the text might be used have never failed to inspire my thought process. My only reget is that I was not one of her students at Union Theological Seminary in Richmond. She has left us all--weekly weary, questionning, hopeful, leaning on God, trying to be faithful pastors/ preachers each week-- in her debt with these wise reflections and comments. Get the three years volumes, read them carefully, keep them, use them, do not lend them out!!
