Item description for Christ in the Gospels of the Liturgical Year: Raymond E. Brown, SS (1928-1998): Expanded Edition with Essays by John R. Donahue, SJ, and Ronald D. Witherup, SS by Raymond Edward Brown, SS Ronald D. Witherup & John R. Donahue...

Overview
A decade after the untimely death of renowned Scripture scholar Father Raymond E. Brown, SS, he continues to inspire and inform scholars and preachers, students and pastoral ministers, lay and ordained. It was only days after Father Brown's death that his final book was published by Liturgical Press. That book, Christ in the Gospels of the Ordinary Sundays, completed his six-volume series on preaching the Scriptures, a series that had begun in the mid-1970s with the publication of his popular An Adult Christ at Christmas. Those six volumes are collected here in one convenient commemorative edition to mark the tenth anniversary of Brown's death. Brown's work is left largely untouched, and readers will find that his wisdom is lasting. Yet Brown, being a scholar's scholar, would recognize the need for some enhancement in a work being republished some thirty years after the first volume appeared. Appropriately, then, this edition contains introductory essays by Brown's colleagues and friends John R. Donahue, SJ, and Ronald D. Witherup, SS, as well as useful indexes and a bibliography of resources for preaching the word of God in the context of the lectionary. As Witherup notes in his preface, Brown "had the rare capacity to simplify complex biblical studies in a manner that did not 'dumb down' the material but allowed it to be understood by a wide audience. . . . He did this in a fashion that was both inspiring and educational." That very broad audience-those who "grew up with Brown," so to speak, as well as a whole new generation of readers and preachers of the word-will find this book to be a source of inspiration and knowledge that they will turn to again and again.

Biblical Scholarship for everyone  May 11, 2010
Raymond Brown, SS provides the best biblical scholarship in a format which is not only understandable to everyone, but engaging as well. Brown introduces the average Christian believer to the world of academic effort without any condescension---but more importantly, with a clarity that reveals a belief in what God has done in Jesus, the Christ. If you are interested in religion, read this book.

A Convenient Anthology of the Studies of a Dean of Biblical Exegesis  Feb 7, 2009
Raymond Brown had the gift of writing masterful studies such as the Birth of the Messiah as well short booklets, such as A Coming Christ in Advent and An Adult Christ at Christmas, for a much broader readership. These brief studies opened up new paths in the understanding of the liturgical life of the Christian Churches. They are know difficult to find in commerce. The Liturgical Press therefore took the happy initiative of gathering them together in one volume, adding new material to help the reader situate the studies in the Church of today. Christ in the Gospels of the Liturgical Year is a proud commemoration to Raymond Brown who died unexpectedly in 1998. He is still sorely missed.
One regret, however, the drabness of the ash grey cover could turn the browser away from opening this priceless book.
