This new CD-ROM, featuring the complete electronic collection of the twelve volumes in the Feasting on the Word commentary series, is ideal for church professionals, scholoars, and lay leaders as they study the Scriptures, plan and lead worship, and teach others who will one day lead worship.
With this new lectionary commentary series, Westminster John Knox offers the most extensive resource for preaching on the market today. The twelve volumes of the series cover all the Sundays in the three-year lectionary cycle, along with movable occasions, such as Christmas Day, Epiphany, Holy Week, and All Saints' Day.For each lectionary text, preachers will find four brief essays--one each on the theological, pastoral, exegetical, and homiletical challenges of the text. This gives preachers sixteen different approaches to the proclamation of the Word on any given occasion.
The editors and contributors to this series are world-class scholars, pastors, and writers representing a variety of denominations and traditions. And while the twelve volumes of the series will follow the pattern of the Revised Common Lectionary, each volume will contain an index of biblical passages so that nonlectionary preachers, as well as teachers and students, may make use of its contents.
