This unique commentary series helps the preacher identify and reflect on the social implications of the Revised Common Lectionary readings. 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 Jr. Day, Earth Day, World AIDS Day, International Women's Day, Cesar Chavez Day, Yom HaShoah, and Juneteenth.
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.
This set includes all three hardback volumes for lectionary years A, B, C.
