Preaching God’s Transforming Justice: Year A is now available. I have a short piece in this volume. It is a valuable book for preachers, students and lay. Check it out on amazon.
“This is the final volume in a unique new commentary series that helps the preacher identify and reflect on the social implications of the biblical readings in the Revised Common Lectionary. The essays concentrate on the themes of social justice in the weekly texts and how those themes can be teachable moments for preaching social justice in the church.
In addition to the lectionary days, there are essays for twenty-two “Holy Days of Justice,” including Martin Luther King Day, Earth Day, World AIDS Day, and Children’s Sabbath. These days are intended to enlarge the church’s awareness of God’s call for justice and of the many ways that call comes to the church and world today.”
