It's a bit American but not enough to distract from the content.
it has the text for each week and coloumns of 4 different styles of commentary.
now that I am used to which is good for what purpose i am able to skip through really quickly to pick any pertinent bits out.

[same review of book #3]
I would hope that as time goes on that the authors will issue supplements to the Ordinary Time volumes that cover the readings that are currently omitted.
Otherwise, I love this series. If the coverage problem were corrected I would give the series five stars, and even more if it were possible.
There are frequently alternate Old Testament texts in the Revised Common Lectionary. Unlike the traditional pattern, these texts attempt to bring a central theme to each Sunday.
The editors of Feasting on the Word made a decision to only incorporate certain texts. In year A, they include the standard texts. In year B, for the first half of the year, they use the standard text, and for the second half (which includes this book), they use the alternate text. Year C they only use the alternate text.
If you wish to see the essays from the texts not included in the commentaries, they are available online only at the publisher's site, for an additional fee.
I appreciate the four selections of essays on each text, and I frequently use this in preparing my sermons, however, I wish they would have released these with both sets of texts, or made a decision to choose the regular or alternate text consistently, releasing a second set of books with the additional essays.
Starting with the middle of Year B, Feasting on the Word uses the alternate Old Testament Texts, so if this is important to you, you should know it. In fact, it uses the original texts for the first six books (Year A and the first half of Year B).
If you aren't familiar with these books, they are an excellent resource, approaching each text from different perspectives, and I find them VERY helpful. Since I am no longer 21, the font in the hard cover is too small to read, and I have chosen to buy the Kindle Version for that very reason. You do not see the resources side by side, but the font can be enlarged to make it easier for me to read.
They navigate easily in Kindle, and using the Table of Contents you can go directly to the section you want.
These are one of my most used resources for preparing a sermon.
