Publishers Description

This set includes three books by Ronald Allen and Clark Williamson: "Preaching the Gospels without Blaming the Jews," "Preaching the Letters without Dismissing the Law" and Preaching the Old Testament." These books provide thoughtful commentaries on important biblical texts and are designed to help preachers avoid incorporating misunderstandings and stereotypes into their sermons on those texts.

Community Description
This three volume set includes:

Preaching the Letters Without Dismissing the Law; A Lectionary Commentary:
This unique lectionary commentary on the Epistle readings in the Revised Common Lectionary helps preachers see how knowledge of first-century Judaism can help them avoid incorporating misunderstandings and stereotypes into their sermons on the letters.

Allen and Williamson highlight insights from recent Christian-Jewish dialogue, call attention to the continuities between Judaism and the theology of Paul, and explore how awareness of the Roman occupation can help the preacher understand the Jewish context of the letters. As in Preaching the Gospels without Blaming the Jews, they also suggest how today's preacher can deal with issues or comments in the text that are inappropriate or controversial in today's context.

Preaching the Gospels Without Blaming the Jews; A Lectionary Commentary:
The four Gospels are steeped in Judaism: one cannot understand any one of them without knowledge of Jewish people, practices, scriptures, and institutions in the first century. At the same time, the gospels reflect tension and even animosity between the communities of the gospel writers and other Jewish groups, and often caricature some Jewish people, practices, and institutions to justify a separation between traditional Jewish groups and the communities of Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John.

In this commentary on the Gospel readings in the Revised Common Lectionary, Allen and Williamson call attention both to ways in which the lections are continuous with the theology, values, and practices of Judaism, and reflect critically on the caricatures in the readings. They explain the polemics in their first-century setting but criticize them historically and theologically. They also suggest ways that preachers can help their congregations move beyond these contentious themes to a greater sense of kinship and shared mission with Judaism

Preaching the Old Testamony; A Lectionary Commentary:
In this third and concluding volume of their lectionary commentary collection (Preaching the Gospels without Blaming the Jews, Preaching the Letters without Dismissing the Law), Ronald Allen and Clark Williamson encourage the church and its preachers to rediscover the Old Testament as a vibrant wellspring of Christian faith and life.

Preachers often neglect the Old Testament, misrepresent it, or regard its theological content as superseded by Jesus and the New Testament, Allen and Williamson claim. The authors help preachers avoid these traps by (1) explaining how a text was understood before the Common Era without any reference to Jesus or Christian doctrine, (2) mentioning representative New Testament passages or themes that are informed by the older material, and (3) commenting briefly on the relationship between the lections in those cases when readings from the Old Testament are paired with readings from the New Testament.
