Overview

The Abingdon Theological Companion to the Lectionary gets straight to the point of the Revised Common Lectionary: to allow God’s people to encounter the meaning of Scripture through the Word read and proclaimed. For each Sunday or occasion, a homiletician and a theologian have collaborated on commentary that will help preachers create substantive and life-changing sermons.

Designed to focus on the deep meaning of the biblical text, and the questions it raises for life as a Christian in the modern world, the Abingdon Theological Companion to the Lectionary begins with the conviction that Scripture speaks first and foremost to Christians now. While informed by the best in biblical studies, its commentary on the Scripture passages of the Revised Common Lectionary engages Christian belief and action in the present day.

The Abingdon Theological Companion to the Lectionary will help the preacher to think deeply about the meaning of Scripture and communicate to worshipers the power of Scripture in their daily lives.
