Overview

Based on the New Revised Standard Version of the Bible, this third in a series of three volumes provides resources for an entire year of sermons and offers practical help for preachers and others who use the Revised Common Lectionary. Beginning with Advent, this unique and comprehensive resource deals with lectionary texts for Year A. Each of the four texts—the Old Testament, Psalter, Gospel, and Epistle—for each Sunday and important festival day, including Christmas, Ash Wednesday, and Good Friday, is treated. A brief introdution for the day indicates the general thrust of the texts and the relationships among them, emphasizing the interpretation of the texts themselves. Also included are suggestions concerning the implications of the texts for life today.
