Description

Feasting on the Gospels is a new seven-volume series that follows up on the success of the Feasting on the Word series to provide another trusted preaching resource, this time on the most prominent and preached upon most preached upon books in the Bible: the four Gospels. With contributions from a diverse and respected group of scholars and pastors, Feasting on the Gospels includes completely new material that covers every single passage in the Gospels, making it suitable for both pastors who preach from the lectionary and pastors who do not. Moreover, these volumes incorporate the unique format of Feasting on the Word, giving preachers four perspectives to choose from for each Gospel passage: theological, pastoral, exegetical, and homiletical. Feasting on the Gospels offers a unique resource for all who preach, either continuously or occasionally, on the Gospels.

Praise for Feasting on the Gospels:

""Continuing in the great tradition of Feasting on the Word, the Feasting on the Gospels series is a welcome resource for preachers. Four scholars, each writing from a different perspective, address every passage in the Gospels, offering stimulation to the preacher's imagination and lighting up the possibilities for engaging biblical sermons.""
—Thomas G. Long, Bandy Professor of Preaching, Candler School of Theology, Emory University

""Because many passages are not included in the lectionary, Feasting on the Gospels is helpful for both sermon and Bible study preparation. The variety of voices included provides helpful breadth of thinking.""
—Fairfax F. Fair, Pastor, First Presbyterian Church, Ann Arbor, Michigan

""Most people may know that Feasting on the Gospels is a profound resource for preachers, pastors, and teachers, but it is also a treasure book for laity, meditators, and spiritual seekers. Its four clearly written essays on each Gospel passage aid reflection, appeal to experience, stir up questions, and leave one wanting more.""
—Kathleen M. O'Connor, Professor Emerita of Old Testament, Columbia Theological Seminary, and author of Jeremiah: Pain and Promise

""A feast indeed! This combination of scholarly and pastoral insights provides rich fare for preachers, pastors, and all who long to be nourished by the word of God.""
—Mary Catherine Hilkert, O.P., Department of Theology, University of Notre Dame

""This excellent preaching and teaching resource is a soul-feeding feast. Take. Eat. Bon appetit!""
—Luke Powery, Associate Professor of the Practice of Homiletics, Duke Divinity School
