Living Liturgy

Preachers and liturgy planners will find The Cultural World of the Apostles a companion to John Pilch's previous series, The Cultural World of Jesus. Each essay offers brief historical and literary information on the second (or middle) reading assigned for the Sundays in the three-year lectionary cycle. Suggestions for cross-cultural comparisons with Western culture and links with the gospel for each Sunday encourage readers to explore pastoral applications to modern life. The second readings were intended to be an independent, semi-continuous reading of the Acts of the Apostles and the letters attributed to Paul and James, with selections from Peter and the book of Revelation. In The Cultural World of the Apostles, Pilch explains that, because the readings were shortened, their brevity has deprived readers of sufficient context to interpret the text-segment in a responsible way. To help people make sense of such high-context documents, Pilch provides a broader literary context for eac..

The Hospitality of God Luke

Byrne, Brendan SJ
$39.00
In stock
REVISED EDITION This book considers the Gospel of Luke through a clear progression of the life and ministry of Jesus. The Hospitality of God approaches Luke's gospel through the interpretive key of "hospitality". It looks at the gospel as a whole, yet lingers upon scenes where the theme of hospitality is particularly prominent, such as the infancy stories, Jesus at Nazareth, Jesus in the house of Simon, the Good Samaritan, Martha and Mary, the banquet in 14:1-35, the Prodigal Son, Jesus' visit to the tax collector Zacchaeus, the institution of the Eucharist, and the Emmaus event. This revised edition includes a new introductory chapter titled "Features of Luke's Gospel," which includes distinctive themes and motifs of the gospel that invite all to join in the life-giving hospitality of God. An excellent resource for students, teachers, and pastors interested in Luke's gospel or in search of a helpful perspective for pastoral and homiletic reflection and preparation...

Lifting the Burden Matthew

Byrne, Brendan SJ
$51.99
In stock
Judgment is a focal point for many interpreters of Matthew. To some people, God is seen as a server and helper to those in need, but to others He is seen as judging and accessible only to the elite. The burden of impending judgment can be a heavy load to carry, but does it need to be? Selecting passages from Matthew, Brendan Byrne demonstrates an awareness of Jesus as one who lightens humanity's burdens rather than adding to them. Lifting the Burden contains methods of interpretation that are sensitive to the concerns of Christianity and Judaism as it focuses on the elements of the Gospel that balance the importance of judgment and view judgment within a larger context. Brendan Byrne, SJ, DPhil, is a professor of New Testament at Jesuit Theological College, within the United Faculty of Theology, Parkville, Melbourne, Australia. He is the author of Romans from the Sacra Pagina series, and Pal and the Christian Woman and is a contributor to the New Jerome Bible Handbook, published by Lit..
