  • Daily Feast Meditations From Feasting On The Word Year B

    $35.00

    Feasting on the Word has quickly become the most popular lectionary commentary series in use today. This is the first in a new series of daily devotionals that draws from the wealth of writing in the commentaries to present inspirational reflections, responses, and prayers for each day of the lectionary year.

    Each day of the week contains Scripture passages for the coming Sunday from the Revised Common Lectionary, excerpts from the commentaries for reflection, a response, and a prayer. Additional material is provided for each Sunday.

    These handsome volumes will be packaged in a soft leather-like cover with rounded corners, a stamped cover, and a sewn-in ribbon to help you keep your place.

    Feasting on the Word is a twelve-volume lectionary commentary series that presents brief essays on each of four perspectives–exegetical, theological, pastoral, and homiletical–for each of the four Sunday readings. The series is edited by Barbara Brown Taylor and David L. Bartlett with a distinguished editorial board, and has been produced in partnership with Columbia Theological Seminary.

  • Praying The Lectionary Cycle B

    $17.95

    To all of God’s children, pastor and layperson alike, this volume will lead them through weekly prayers to him. Through prayer, a connection is formed with God, which deepens one’s faith. Planning for worship should be centered around how the church can most appropriately praise God, and Pastor Garth Wehrfritz-Hanson’s volume of prayers allows pastors to focus on what is most important.

    These prayers, often referred to as prayers of the church or prayers of intercession, can be modified for any locale and denomination. People connect most to the Father through meaningful worship, and what makes them feel most welcome is when the service impacts their daily life, whatever they might be going through.

    In Praying the Lectionary: Cycle B, Pastor Wehrfritz-Hanson recognizes the importance of these prayers and has written them for specific weeks of the church year. This lifesaver, worship-saver of a book is a resource that will make weekly worship planning easier, and more enjoyable, for any worship leader.

    The Gift of New Creation, originally released in 2015, invites us to explore God’s saving and redeeming love through a study of the lectionary Bible readings for Lent and Easter.

Through the readings, we hear the invitation to embrace God’s salvation and the new life offered to us through Christ. The season of Lent offers opportunities to reflect on God’s redemptive action and to explore means of grace that help us move into new life in Christ. Transformation is a key focus of Lenten worship, study, and prayer. We will discover the salvation and renewal of creation revealed through the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus.

  • Journey Of Faith Journey Of The Universe

    $19.95

    One of the most surprising discoveries of our time is that the universe is an unfolding and highly creative story: a cosmogenesis. In Journey of Faith, Journey of the Universe, Br.

It will serve as rich nourishment to anyone involved in the ministry of preaching or who wants to explore the lectionary in a new way.

    The distinction of the book is Br. Ivan’s capacity to speak with depth and originality on both the Scripture readings and the cosmic spirituality, in fact, to blend them usefully, insightfully. This selection of homilies offered on various Sundays and holy days of the three-year lectionary cycle offers fresh insights on the readings for the day to those who are also open to the challenge to theology and Scripture that comes from new cosmology.

    Pouring out over three decades of wisdom in his newest Lectionary Preaching Workbook: Series X, Cycle C, David Bales invites teachers of the word to peer deep beneath the pages of scripture to consider broader perspectives and themes. In each lectionary day, Bales presents themes, summaries, exegesis, and a prayer as resources to guide sermon development, always attempting to expose preachers to different perspectives and deeper knowledge.

    As Bales carefully unpacks his thoughts upon each selected scripture passage, he combines his personal ideas with the time-tested analysis of other great Christian thinkers, resulting in a thoughtful and critical exposition on God’s word. This unique style empowers pastors to engage with God’s word, and the end result is a resource that will equip congregations to be challenged through a deliberate, well-informed message.

    Designed specifically as a sermon resource for Cycle C, the Lectionary Preaching Workbook will benefit any student of the word, and can be used for sermon starters, individual Bible study, and adult study groups.

    Each chapter includes:

    Revised Common Lectionary texts for the day

    Scripture references and intensive exposition

    Theme analysis and narrative illustration

    Citation attributions to various apologists, teachers, and authors

    A pastoral prayer

  • Abingdon Theological Companion To The Lectionary

    $29.99

    The Abingdon Theological Companion to the Lectionary begins with the conviction that Scripture speaks first and foremost to Christians now. Its message engages Christian belief and action in the present day. While informed by the best in current biblical studies, its commentary on the Scripture passages of the Revised Common Lectionary focuses on the questions of Christian life in the world that church members bring with them to worship. Each entry seeks to answer the essential questions, what does this passage say about the Gospel? How does it speak to my encounter with God in Christ, and my calling as a Christian in the world? This volume is conceived as a companion to biblical and lectionary resources that preachers regularly employ. It showcases theological matters that arise out of both the biblical texts in the lectionary and the church seasons and special days.
