Preaching the New Lectionary Year B is made up of selected passages from the Bible, placed within a literary and liturgical context. This new context calls for a consideration of the liturgical character and setting of the Lectionary readings.
Preaching the New Lectionary uses a literary-liturgical way of interpreting all the readings of each Sunday and major feast of the liturgical year, including the often overlooked responsorial psalm. Preaching the New Lectionary explicitly situates the interpretation of each day within the theology of its respective liturgical season. The lections are also read in sequential order from the first Sunday of that season to the last. This reading interprets the function of the literary forms, thus providing yet another way of interpreting the riches of the readings.
Preaching the New Lectionary Year B is authored by Dianne Bergant, CSA, professor of Old Testament studies at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, and Richard N. Fragomeni, PhD, associate professor of liturgy and homiletics at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago.
