An unprecedented, monumental work, the three-volume Lectionary Commentary offers superb exegetical essays on 513 biblical texts from the Revised Common Lectionary spanning the three-year liturgical cycle. Written by seventy-eight pastors, priests, and teachers from a variety of Christian traditions, these essays are meant primarily to serve as exegetical "jump starts" for busy preachers.

For pastors who have grown to love Preaching from the Lectionary: An Exegetical Commentary, this is a great companion text. Combining expert commentaries from a wide variety of scholars, The Lectionary Commentary serves as a springboard into deeper studies of your Lectionary text each week. You may find it is the first place you look as you begin your studies for the week as it contains useful background and contextual information that allows you to pursue more focused study in other areas of your software library.

    It makes perfect sense to publish a comprehensive commentary on the Revised Common Lectionary. The surprise is that it has taken this long to appear. At long last the wait is over. Eerdmans, under the editorship of Roger E. Van Harn, a retired Reformed minister have produced this three volume set. As the subtitle suggests this is THEOLOGICAL exegesis of the lectionary, making it ideal for expository preaching. This commentary does not replace the need for regular critical commentaries but adequately compliments these, explaining the texts in their lectionary relationship. The authors are an ecumenical mix resulting in different approaches and emphases. The quality of work, however, is consistently good throughout the three volumes. No one who preaches through the RCL should go without this set.
