Liturgical Press Suggests
The fifty-six essays in this book present cultural reflections on the gospel reading assigned for each Sunday in Cycle A of the Roman Lectionary. Each essay highlights aspects of the first-century, Eastern Mediterranean cultural world in which Jesus lived and suggests a cross-cultural comparison with contemporary Western culture. With this background information, readers can make more fitting applications of the Scripture to modern life situations.
Used as an aid in preaching, Lectionary-based catechesis, Scripture study, or for the interest and knowledge it brings, The Cultural World of Jesus will add form and substance to your understanding of "the Word that dwelt among us."
Homilists on the lookout for a fresher approach to interpreting the lectionary texts will enjoy this book.
The Bible Today
. . . an invaluable resource for preachers, and very interesting for anyone seeking deeper insight into the gospel.
