Feasting on the Gospels is a new seven-volume series covering the most prominent and preached upon New Testament books—the four gospels. Taking a passage-by-passage approach, the commentary series provides you with practical insights for preaching.
Four Useful Sections on Each Passage for Sermon Preparation
Four perspectives are offered for each passage: theological, pastoral, exegetical, and homiletical. In Wordsearch, each of these perspectives is listed in the table of contents so you can navigate quickly to the one you want to see.
While great for sermon preparation, Feasting on the Gospels is also addressed to "all who want to deepen their understanding of the Gospels—Bible study leaders and class members, seasoned preachers and seminarians, believers and skeptics."
Suitable for both lectionary and non-lectionary use, Feasting on the Gospels is a unique preaching resource. Each volume features brand new essays from a diverse and respected group of scholars and pastors. While the four main perspectives shape the essays, you'll also learn the ecumenical, social, ethnic, and cultural perspectives of the authors. This kind of commentary provides a broad conversation that engages the text from many angles.
