Item description for Sermons on the First Readings: Series III, Cycle B by Richard Gribble, Ken Lentz & III William J. Carl...

Overview
When building anything of lasting value, it's important to lay a solid foundation - and the foundation of our Christian faith lies in the Hebrew scriptures. In this collection of inspirational messages based on the First Readings from Cycle B of the Revised Common Lectionary, five outstanding practitioners of the homiletic art explore passages from the Old Testament and the book of Acts. These ancient texts chronicle God's intervention in the lives of ordinary people throughout history, and the messages in this volume show how the stories of God's chosen people offer many lessons to guide us in our spiritual journey today. Drawing on diverse backgrounds and perspectives, this set of sermons for each Sunday and major celebration throughout the entire church year inspire us to see God's influence - not only in our own lives, but also throughout all humanity. This essential resource is useful for: * Fresh homiletical approaches to the lectionary texts * Inspiring preaching illustrations and sermon starters * Understanding scripture passages * Bible study and discussion groups * Personal devotions and inspirational reading
