Hearing The Word Of God: Reflections on the Sunday Readings, Year C (Paperback)John R. Donahue, SJ (author)
- We can order this
Catholic Press Association Award Winner!The commentaries on the Lectionary readings in Hearing the Word of God are an attempt not only to hear the Word of God in Scripture but also to suggest ways that the Sunday readings might continue to nurture faith and life. Inevitably, they reflect the time in which they were first written - as a popular weekly column in America from November 2000 to Advent 2001.
Hearing the Word of God includes Scripture readings for the Sunday, followed by a reflection on the reading, and concludes with Praying with Scripture," a series of questions and meditations to guide readers in making a personal application of the reflection.
John R. Donahue, SJ, PhD, is the Raymond E. Brown Distinguished Professor of New Testament Studies at St. Mary's Seminary and University, Baltimore. He is the coauthor, with Daniel Harrington, SJ, of the Sacra Pagina commentary on The Gospel of Mark,published by the Liturgical Press."

John Donahue's commentaries on the lectionary readings are quite simply superb. They worked very well when they first appeared in America magazine, and they deserve to be collected in book form for readers for a long time to come. The length of each reflection and of the overall book is just right. This book works for people in the pew as well as preachers and teachers looking for insightful and relevant ways of connecting the lectionary readings with daily life.The Catholic Journalist
