Feasting on the Gospels is an all-new, seven-volume preaching series that focuses on the most prominent and preached-on New Testament books, the four Gospels. Featuring never- before-published essays from a diverse and respected group of scholars and pastors, Feasting on the Gospels covers every single passage in the Gospels, making it a valuable resource for developing sermons. For each Gospel text, preachers will find four essays on the exegetical, theological, pastoral, and homiletical challenges of the text, with the freedom to begin where they choose. Feasting on the Gospels offers a unique resource for all who preach, either continuously or occasionally, on the Gospels.
"This excellent preaching and teaching resource is a soul-feeding feast set at the table of the Gospel of Matthew. Take. Eat. Bon appetit!"
—Luke Powery, Dean of the Chapel, Duke University
"A feast indeed! This combination of scholarly and pastoral insights provides rich fare for preachers, pastors, and all who long to be nourished by the word of God."
—Mary Catherine Hilkert, O.P., Department of Theology, University of Notre Dame
"Most people may know that Feasting on the Gospels is a profound resource for preachers, pastors, and teachers, but it is also a treasure book for laity, meditators, and spiritual seekers. Its four clearly written essays on each Gospel passage aid reflection, appeal to experience, stir up questions, and leave one wanting more."
—Kathleen M. O'Connor, Emerita, Columbia Theological Seminary, and author of Jeremiah: Pain and Promise
"Because many passages are not included in the lectionary, Feasting on the Gospels is helpful for both sermon and Bible study preparation. The variety of voices included provides helpful breadth of thinking."
—Fairfax F. Fair, Pastor, First Presbyterian Church, Ann Arbor, Michigan
"Continuing in the great tradition of Feasting on the Word, the Feasting on the Gospels series is a welcome resource for preachers. Four scholars, each writing from a different perspective, address every passage in the Gospels, offering stimulation to the preacher's imagination and lighting up the possibilities for engaging biblical sermons."
—Thomas G. Long, Bandy Professor of Preaching, Candler School of Theology, Emory University
