For preaching, study, discussion or reflective reading, Word Among Us aims to help the people of God read the Bible with greater understanding and discernment for daily living as disciples of Christ. For every Sunday and major holy day, the authors bring together theological and pastoral insights in an exploration of the background and meaning of the scriptures read in church, and their relevance for today's world.
Commentary is supplemented by helpful notes on historical context, biblical setting, variations in interpretation and links between the passages, while illustrative quotes and suggestions for application will be invaluable for all seeking to live out their faith in practical ways. An ideal starting point for sermon preparation throughout the year, Word Among Us also includes an introduction to the liturgical seasons as a further aid to planning and leading worship.
