Publishers Description

Although originally intended for use by Catholics, "Preaching the Lectionary" has become truly ecumenical in intention and tone. It is based on the "New Revised Standard Version" and integrates the Revised Common Lectionary to enhance the versatility of the preacher's task of proclaiming the Word of God as effectively and as broadly as possible.

This third edition of "Preaching the Lectionary" will appeal to homilists and others who have a ministerial or preparatory role in the Sunday liturgy. Written with the needs of the active pastor, homilist, and liturgist in mind, it offers brief, technical discussions balanced with practical insights and reflections. This new edition of a classic approach to the Lectionary has been updated to reflect the thinking of a wide range of biblical scholars and theologians.

Reviews - What do customers think about Preaching the Lectionary: The Word of God for the Church Today?

The very best lectionary commentary for preachers!  Jan 23, 2003
My 1974 edition of Prof. Fuller's work (replacing an earlier version which I gave to a friend) is falling apart! As a U.M. pastor I've relied Prof. Fuller's commentaries every week for 30 years. I continue to find his thoughts insightful! What a joy to find this book has been reprinted and updated. Prof. Fuller's comments are concise and always insightful. He writes as a pastor, not a scholar but never once does he betray his schoilarly acumen. The very terseness of his commentaries starts my thoughts. This work (though 570+ pages) makes its multi-volume, more recent competitors seem bloated and pompous.
 
The best single volume for preaching the three year cycle  Apr 28, 1998
Reginald Fuller's work has been indespensable for my preaching as an R.C. Priest. His introductory notes on homily preparation and homiletics should be set reading for all aspiring preachers in a liturgical context. I use this book for is it's very clear presentaion of relevant background biblical scholarship on the readings for each Sunday or Feast Day. The material is presented in an accessible format. My only criticism of the work is his homily hints at the end of the exegetical review of the readings; they often do not strike me as the best use of the sound biblical exegesis that he presents. It is also important for the preacher to apply this exegetical material within his/her own community's context. I therfore do not use his hints that much if at all. When I am travelling in ministry, this book always goes with me. It is the best single volume of exegetical material for preaching the three year lectionary.
