Including every Sunday of the church year as well as special holidays, The Lectionary Commentary arranges the biblical texts in canonical order, making it useful to all preachers, not just those who follow the lectionary. These three volumes aim throughout to answer the question, "What does the preacher need to know about this text in ourder to preach a faithful sermon from it?" Each essay closely considers its specific biblical text and provides insightful theological reflection while remaining alert to our contemporary context.
The present volume, The Second Readings: Acts and the Epistles, covers the lectionary readings for the final selections from Acts and for all of the New Testament Epistles, from Romans to Revelation. Unique to this volume is an excellent essay by Colin E. Gunton on preaching from the Letters.
