Overview

In Christ in the Gospels of the Ordinary Sundays, Father Brown discusses the Gospels as they are used in the Ordinary Time." It is the time the Church treats the Gospels consecutively and in detail, with Year A of the three-year cycle taking its readings from Matthew; Year B from Mark; and Year C from Luke.

Father Brown discusses how a Gospel was formed and explains what is distinctive about each of the four Gospels. Then he fits the Sunday readings, one by one, into an overall picture of each Gospel, showing how the Gospel shapes the narrative, its theological emphases, and what it says to readers. With such an overview, the Sunday selections may be read in context and interpreted in their original sequence.

During Ordinary time people turn from reflecting on the mystery of Christ to considering how that mystery affects their lives. In Christ in the Gospels of the Ordinary Sundays, Father Brown provides an overview of the meaning of the Gospels during the many weeks of Ordinary Time.

Chapters are "Understanding How Gospels Were Written and Their Use in the Sunday Liturgy," "The Gospel According to Matthew," "The Gospel According to Mark," "The Gospel According to Luke," and "The Gospel According to John."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

A gift from a great scholar and teacher to all who follow the Sunday Gospel readings in prayer and preaching. In showing us how to read the Gospel texts in their distinctive historical, literary and theological contexts, Brown once more illustrates the pastoral potential of sound biblical scholarship.
Daniel J. Harrington, SJ, Weston Jesuit School of Theology

Here is his final and precious gift to those who have contributed to and share his insight that liturgy well conducted and readings well proclaimed constitute the most homogeneous context for understanding why the gospels were written and what they were intended to accomplish.
William C. Graham
