. . . a useful guide for liturgical committees, preachers and proclaimers, and the catholic community at large.
John Donahue's commentaries on the lectionary readings are quite simply superb. They worked very well when they first appeared in America magazine, and they deserve to be collected in book form for readers for a long time to come. The length of each reflection and of the overall book is just right. This book works for people in the pew as well as preachers and teachers looking for insightful and relevant ways of connecting the Lectionary readings with daily life.

More than commentary on the biblical passages, these are pastoral reflections on their way to solid homily insights. Preachers and liturgy planners will appreciate this helpful resource.
