Item description for Lectionary Preaching Workbook, Series VI, Cycle C by E. Carver McGriff...

Overview
Preachers must understand the teaching techniques of parable and hyperbole, not to mention having a good background in systematic theology, in order to understand what the Bible's writers really meant.... But our responsibility is also to reduce the complexities of Bible study to such simplicities that our many listeners, ranging from busy young professional people to aging men and women of failing health to youngsters facing a variety of new temptations, can take away a saving word. (from the Preface) E. Carver McGriff provides the tools preachers need for their daunting task with some of the most timely and thought-provoking research on the lectionary texts ever made available. Included for each scriptural lesson in the lectionary are: A listing of the applicable Revised Common, Roman Catholic, and Episcopal lectionary texts. A description of the Psalm of the day. A prayer for the day. Commentary that is more than academic exegesis -- McGriff brings to the forefront those points in the lessons that relate most poignantly to our contemporary reality. Suggested sermon titles for each of the three texts for each Sunday. Themes and suggested directions for preaching on each text. Several additional illustrations to enliven your preaching.

"Known in the Indianapolis community as a preacher with extraordinary gifts, it is no surprise at all that this work by Carver McGriff brings remarkable insights to those who look for integrity in their preaching.
