not used this one yet but I have found earlier versions of the same series to be incredibly useful.
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.

an invaluable tool for the preacher who uses the lectionary. A valuable feature is the coverage of all the set readings from four points of view: theological, pastoral, exegetical and homiletical. A range of writers is used, giving different perspectives on the readings.

I have bought the whole of Year A and volumes 1,2, & 3 Year B would have went on to buy the whole series but not at double the normal £21 price.

HASH(0x8bd7800c) out of 5 stars missed half the lectionary 15 Jun. 2009
By Thomas Broad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a fabulous series - I have been using it in a lectionary study group all through year B. The season of Pentecost arrived and as we turned to look for the readings of the week, they were missing. The RCL allows for either a SC (semi-continuous) or GR (Gospel-related) set of readings during ordinary time, but the SC option is not there for all of books 3 & 4! What's with that? How can this call itself a series for "Preaching the Revised Common Lectionary" when half of the lectionary is missing? It certainly doesn't seem like a space concern, as each of books 3 & 4 are markedly thinner than the Easter (#2) book. I notice that the price of book #4 has dropped significantly -- perhaps others heard of this limitation and elected to put their dollars elsewhere. This really is unfortunate, as the quality of the material in books 1&2 is truly spectacular.

HASH(0x8bd78060) out of 5 stars Not all there 27 Aug. 2009
By Nicholas Finke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was given the first volume of Year B in this series by a friend. I loved the series at first sight and I have purchased every volume since as it came out. I am concerned as are others with the lack of coverage in volumes 3 & 4 in Year B. I preach as part of a rotation in my congregation and so I do not always have the ability to choose which of the Ordinary Time sequences will be used at a service where I am preaching. I can understand that it might be difficult to find additional authors for two more readings for each Sunday in Ordinary Time, but a project like this is taking the long view anyway.

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.

HASH(0x8bd7833c) out of 5 stars A Mid-Season Surprise 11 Sept. 2009
By Perpetual Student - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Imagine my surprise when I received this commentary and discovered that the OT lections had changed from the alternate to the primary readings (RCL). I later learned that this is how the editors chose to handle Year B in terms of splitting. I also understand that they are going to make some provisions for years A and C, but don't remember what the fix is.
HASH(0x8bd78234) out of 5 stars Uses alternate texts 8 Sept. 2012
By Alex S - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
When I first began using Feasting on the word, I used the Kindle version, since they are easier to store and make the text larger. But as a result, I never read the reasoning behind the use and pattern of alternate texts.

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.
HASH(0x8bd78420) out of 5 stars Kindle makes these easier to read 30 Sept. 2015
By Alex S - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It is hard to write anything I haven't written about the others I have purchased.

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.
