Scripture Backgrounds for the Sunday Lectionary, Year A: A Resource for Homilists
Formerly published as Foundations for Preaching and Teaching, this resource is a compilation of selected Scripture backgrounds for Year A. Commentaries offer historical-critical backgrounds, identify recurring themes, and underscore the relevance of the readings to life today. A gem of a resource for all who teach and preach; this book will provide homilists with a lens through which to prepare each week.
“This book is a treasure-trove of insight and commentary on all of the Sundays, holydays, solemnities, and feasts of Year A.…It also includes nuggets of wisdom taken from a multitude of Church documents that shed further light on the message of the scriptures.…It's wonderful!”
