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. The present volume, The Second Readings: Acts and the Epistles, covers the lectionary readings for the final selections of Acts and for all of the New Testament Epistles, from Romans to Revelation. Unique to this volume is an excellent essay by Colin E. Gunton on preaching from the Letters.
An excellent tool for studying the texts of the lectionary.
A remarkable achievement for its scholarly exegesis and its concern to provide a basis for exposition...Will pay handsome dividends for preachers and congregations.
