Seasons of the Word: Reflections on the Sunday Readings with CD-Rom
In this book, now in a new edition to celebrate twenty years since its first publication, Denis McBride takes his readers through the full liturgical cycle of readings for Sundays and feast days. His insightful reflections throw new light on familiar and unfamiliar passages of scripture. Wearing his scholarship lightly, Denis McBride uses his background in biblical studies and psychology to open up the readings in a way that is accessible for all readers.
Sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, always thought-provoking and informative, this book is a vital tool for preachers and for all those who want to deepen their understanding of the word of God as it is found in our liturgy.
For the first time, a CD-ROM is included, containing all the texts along with additional prayers and introductions to the readings.
