“This is an excellent lectionary resource! We have group that uses the weekly lectionary scripture readings as a basis for our discussion and study. This book sheds a lot light on the background and setting of each scripture selection.”–Facebook Review
“Connections is the real deal.” -The Rev. Canon Broderick Greer, Canon Precentor at Saint John’s Cathedral, Denver Colorado
“What a grand, lectionary-based set of resources for preaching and worship! In a way, this is the next generation of Feasting on the Word and represents the best thinking on Biblical exegesis, homiletics, personal and social application, all offered with preaching commentary and worship planning ideas for each lectionary reading of the given season.
The contributions are wide and broad, with dozens of writers from bunches of denominations, from Evangelical Free and the Christian Reformed Church to the more standard Presbyterian, United Methodist, Lutheran, UCC, and Episcopalian. There are African American exegetes and Latina preachers and Baptist liturgists. What a fun and helpful array of prayerful ideas from stimulating voices.
Surely one of the best worship aids and liturgical resources in many a year, to be celebrated as a publishing win in 2018.” –Byron Borger, Hearts and Minds Bookstore owner
