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 Third Readings: The Gospels, covers the lectionary readings from Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Unique to this volume is an excellent essay by C. Clifton Black on Augustinian preaching and the nurture of Christians.
Praise for the Print Edition
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.
