Item Description...
Overview
The Lectionary is made up of selected passages from the Bible, placed within a literary and liturgical context. This new context calls for a consideration of the liturgical character and setting of the Lectionary readings. Preaching the New Lectionary: Year C, offers readers that interpretation. Preaching the New Lectionary is unique. First, it employs a literary-liturgical way of interpreting all the readings of each Sunday and major feast of the liturgical year, including the often overlooked responsorial psalm. Second, it explicitly situates the interpretation of each day within the theology of its respective liturgical season. This theology is drawn from the specific themes of the readings that comprise that particular year rather than from more general themes associated with the season. The meaning of the entire season becomes the context for understanding the individual parts of it. Third, the lections are also read in sequential order from the first Sunday of that season to the last. This reading interprets the function of the literary forms, thus providing yet another way of interpreting the riches of the readings. This way of reading and understanding the Lectionary has potential for liturgical ministry. It can quicken the religious imagination of homilists, thus providing fresh new possibilities for liturgical preaching. It offers creative insights for those involved in the liturgical preparation for the celebration of feasts and seasons. It can also act as a valuable resource for liturgical catechesis. The insights included in Preaching the New Lectionary contribute toward enhancing the liturgical lives of the faithful.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Preaching the Lectionary  Dec 3, 2009
A good tool for those doing bible study on Sunday readings.
This book will help you learn and understand well the readings for the Mass.
Gives you a wider perspective of the readings leading to better reflection.
 
Rich material for reflection  Nov 12, 2009
I'm surprised to see I'm the first person to comment on this book on this site. It really is a superb volume and has a much wider potential audience than the title implies. Each week, you get a detailed commentary on the readings, the responsorial psalm, and the gospel for the coming Sunday. The approach taken is to analyze the vocabulary and the context and then to point out important implications. Finally, the readings for that week are brought together in a discussion of common themes.

I'll use the First Sunday of Advent as an example.

The commentary on the first reading points out that Jeremiah refers to "the house of Israel and the house of Judah." Now, since this mention of both occurs during the period of the divided kingdom, the prophecy clearly has a universal significance. This, of course, is just one point the authors make in about a page of material on the first reading.

Then in the material on Psalm 25, they indicate that the phrase "your ways" can mean either God's ways or the ways of those who follow God -- or both. Again, this is just one example picked from a whole page on the responsorial psalm.

The section on the reading from 1 Thessalonians tells us, among other things, that the Greek verbs are optative rather than imperative, indicating that the material refers to St. Paul's wishes rather than his commands.

The commentary on the Gospel then compares the apocalyptic signs mentioned by Jesus with relevant passages in the Old Testament. Again, the full commentary on the Gospel is about a page.

Finally, the theme for the day is, of course, Advent, but the authors identify three ways in which this is so.

Rich material for reflection -- and not just for priests, but for all those who like to study the readings.
