This fundamental resource for presiders and lectors, homilists and liturgy planners is perfect for lector training programs, liturgy committee meetings and Scripture study groups to promote good proclamation and love of Scripture in the Sunday assembly.
Readings are presented in sense-line format -- exactly as they appear in the Lectionary -- to aid the reader in preparation, and lectionary numbers are included for each set of readings. Offers helpful commentaries for each reading, providing background information and tips for effective proclamation. Margin notes point out logical divisions in the passages and help the reader with difficult pronunciations. Words are marked in the reading to aid the reader in stressing important sections and concepts. Workbook is arranged according to the liturgical year, from the First Sunday of Advent to the solemnity of Christ the King. [8 3/8 x 10 7/8, softcover]
