Preaching from the Lectionary

An Exegetical Commentary with CDROM
  • By Gerard S. Sloyan
In this rich and deeply informative resource, one of the most learned and insightful biblical scholars of our time provides an exegetical analysis of each lectionary passage from the Revised Common Lectionary and the Lectionary for Mass for each Sunday and major feast in the three-year cycle.

Preceded by an essay on biblical preaching, Sloyan's astute work attempts to achieve the "plain sense" (Luther) or "literal sense" (Aquinas) of each text, largely through modern historical-critical exegesis. He deftly situates each reading in its historical background and its liturgical setting, as well as within its larger scriptural world through multiple cross-references and allusions.

Usable within the whole range of lectionary traditions, Sloyan's work includes a CD-ROM with the full text (fully searchable) and instant access to each biblical passage referenced. Those entrusted with the preaching task have here an extremely valuable commentary made even more usable through the tools available on CD-ROM.
