Item description for Preaching the New Lectionary: Year A by Osa Dianne Bergant & Richard N. Fragomeni...

Overview
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. Preaching the New Lectionary is unique. First, it employs a literary-liturgical way of interpreting all the readings of each Sunday and major feast of the liturgical year, including the often overlooked responsorial psalm. Second, it explicitly situates the interpretation of each day within the theology of its respective liturgical season. This theology is drawn from the specific themes of the readings that comprise that particular year rather than from more general themes associated with the season. The meaning of the entire season becomes the context for understanding the individual parts of it. Third, the lections are also read in sequential order from the first Sunday of that season to the last. This reading interprets the function of the literary forms, thus providing yet another way of interpreting the riches of the readings. 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Preaching the New Lectionary: Year A?

Preaching the New Lectionary Year A  Jun 7, 2007
Preaching the New Lectionary Years A, B, and C are excellent books and are very helpful in understanding the readings for each Sunday Mass. They are all well written in very easy to understand language. I also find them helpful in preparing my lessons for the children in our R.C.I.A, Journey. It most of all gives me the opportunity to study the readings ahead of time, to deepen my understanding and to be ready, in a deeper spiritual way, for the Sunday celebrations. Both Dianne and Fr. Fargomini have given us a great presentation.
