This is a really useful resource, recommended by a tutor at college, easy to use but four different views of the Lectionary passages keeps it fresh

A substantial resource, not without bias 8 Feb. 2011
By Maurice W. Geldert - Published on Amazon.com
I have used these quarterly publications throughout Year C, and now into Year A, and will continue to do so. Commentary on all readings for each Sunday, as well as major feasts is included, not just for Gospel, or selected topics. Each of the four areas of commentary begin on the same page, and continue in a columnar fashion from one page to the next, rather than one area (ex. 'exegesis'), being finished before another begins. Because all commentaries are laid out over multiple pages, side by side comparison is not a benefit of this system, which was somewhat awkward to adjust to initially.
No author gives commentary on more than one section of the same week's material, and authors are chosen from diverse backgrounds. If there is a most common bias to the writings, I would find such to be towards the more liberal, 'politically correct' side, (using my own Episcopal Church's current drift as reference). Personally, I have been more aware of this in the 'theological' discussions than in other areas, for some reason. In all fairness, I am an orthodox Anglo-Catholic, meaning I have my own positions, so I suspect there are many who would find this material 'right on'!
Quibbles aside, I have found this text to be a valued resource, often thought-provoking, often challenging, well written and edited. I plan on continuing to complete the set.
Yours in Christ,
If you can only choose one sermon prep resource, this is it. 16 Dec. 2012
By Bruce Reyes-Chow - Published on Amazon.com
I have been a pastor and preacher for nearly 20 years and believe me, I have tried them all. While there are some VERY good ones out there like [...], [...], Feasting on the Word is HANDS DOWN the best blend of Biblical insight, theological inquiry and pastoral care.

First, if you google some of the writers and editors involved in this project, you will soon discover that these folks are top-shelf academics, theologians, preachers and pastors. This is where the brillance of this series comes in. For each set of Sunday Lectionary readings you receive a perspective from all four of these perspectives: theological, biblical, homiletical and pastoral. This way a preacher is able to get a broad yet, concise view of the Scripture upon which he/she can build firm foundation for a particular sermon shared with a particular community.

Second, if you are a preacher that preaches from the above mentioned Lectionary tradition (If you are not familiar with the Lectionary check out:[...]), this is the best series I have ever used. A close second would be the [...], but over all, Feasting on the Word is the one I would spend my money on.

Third, honestly, while you can now get many of the volumes on Kindle, the publishers have done a great job of choosing a look, feel and layout that is pleasing to the eye and touch. They include the readings, a four column layout that is easy to read and the cream/brown color scheme just feels classy.

If you are looking for a gift for a pastor (your own or yourself) or you want to start a seminarian's book collection, you cannot go wrong with this series as well as the many worship and liturgy resources that are beginning to role out. This particular SET of commentaries for YEAR C is a GREAT way to support and strengthen anyone as he/she engages in the art and task of preaching.
Preaching at its best. 22 April 2013

This series of preaching aids has been extremely beneficial, and will continue to be in the years ahead. I appreciate the four subjects needed to do excellent exegetical work in preparing a sermon. The diversity of authors is extremely helpful.

fantastic...if you haven't gotten them...DO. Four different approaches for each of the lectionary texts for each week. The feasting on the word worship companions are great as well.
Great help in sermon prep 17 Feb. 2014

I always use Feasting on the Word as part of my sermon prep. The parallel approaches-homiletical, exegetical, etc. are a great help in listening to and hearing from the text.
