The Lectionary is made up of selected passages from the Bible, placed within a literary and liturgical context. This new context calls for a consideration of the liturgical character and setting of the Lectionary readings. Preaching the New Lectionary: Year A offers readers that interpretation.

This way of reading and understanding the Lectionary has potential for many forms of liturgical ministry. It can quicken the religious imagination of homilists, thus providing fresh new possibilities for liturgical preaching. It offers creative insights for those involved in the liturgical preparation for the celebration of feasts and seasons. It can also act as a valuable resource for liturgical catechesis. The material in Preaching the New Lectionary contributes toward enhancing the liturgical lives of the faithful.

Preachers will find a fresh take on the Sunday readings and psalms, blending critical and literary insights in a new liturgical synthesis. . . . Anyone who takes this book up will discover new paths of prayer and reflection grounded in the Scriptures and the liturgical seasons.Michael Witczak, St. Francis Seminary, St. Francis, Wisconsin
