This unique commentary helps the preacher identify and reflect on the social implications of the Revised Common Lectionary readings for year A.
In addition to providing commentary for each day in the lectionary calendar, this series introduces twenty-two Holy Days for Justice. These days are intended to enlarge the church's awareness of God's call for justice and the many ways that call comes to the church and world today. The days include Martin Luther King Day, Earth Day, World AIDS Day, and Children's Sabbath.
For each lectionary day and Holy Day for Justice there is an essay that helps the preacher integrate a variety of social justice concerns into their preaching. The contributors are a diverse group of homileticians, pastors, biblicalscholars, theologians, and social activists.
