Overview

With this new lectionary commentary series, Westminster John Knox Press offers the most extensive resource for preaching on the market today. The twelve volumes of this 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 non-lectionary preachers, as well as teachers and students, may make use of its contents.

With the Logos Bible Software Edition of Feasting on the Word (12 vols.), the readings are arranged by calendar date and each volume automatically opens at the next set of readings. Right-clicking quickly opens up Logos guides and tools, making study and sermon preparation easier than ever before.

Key Features

  • Aids in developing and preparing sermons
  • Follows pattern of the Revised Common Lectionary
