Series IX, Cycle A
George Reed, OSL

This special edition for Lent and Easter, Cycle A of the popular Lectionary Worship Aids allows ministers and worship leaders to tie the entire worship experience together for their congregations. Reed's insights will prove invaluable in leading congregations into the presence of God not only on Sunday but also on holidays and other special occasions.

Cycle A

This compilation of stories for the Lent and Easter Seasons taken from StoryShare follows in that same tradition. StoryShare, a part of, is written by various authors brought together to meditate on scriptures in the Revised Common Lectionary for Cycle A and create stories that flesh out these passages, allowing readers to see these words in a new way.

Series IX, Cycle A
Mark Ellingsen

Dr. Ellingsen presents the preacher with a resource that deeply enriches weekly sermon preparation. Not only does he offer exegetical and theological information for the lections, but sermon topics, themes, and other resources as well… I also appreciate the resources that he offers at the beginning of the workbook: the review of the books of the Bible, a theological overview, as well as reviews of the various seasons of the church. Unlike so many lectionary resources that are grounded in the scriptures, Dr. Ellingsen incorporates a strong focus on the theological emphasis of the texts and context. I will definitely encourage the students to purchase this workbook.
