Twelfth volume in Feasting on the Word completes acclaimed series, expansion projects in works
May 12, 2011
Westminster John Knox Press (WJK) has just published the twelfth and final volume of its best-selling Feasting on the Word series: Feasting on the Word: Year A, Volume 4. With the series now complete, WJK has also released multi-volume sets, which include three four-volume sets—one for each lectionary year—and a complete, twelve-volume set. In August, the Feasting on the Word: Complete Twelve-Volume Set on CD-ROM will be available.
The popularity of the series—awarded in 2009 by the Association of Theological Booksellers as Book of the Year—sets the stage for several follow-up products. The next product in the Feasting on the Word family is an online curriculum for Christian educators. The new Feasting on the Word Curriculum: Teaching the Revised Common Lectionary incorporates the uniqueness of the Feasting on the Word commentaries to explore the lectionary passages in sessions for all ages from kindergarten to adult. A special rate is available to educators who purchase the curriculum by May 30.
Later this fall, the first of three new Feasting on the Word devotionals will be released. Edited by Kathleen Long Bostrom and Elizabeth Caldwell, Daily Feast: Meditations from Feasting on the Word, Year B will offer reflections and prayers on Scripture passages for the coming Sunday from the Revised Common Lectionary. The devotionals will feature such contributors as David L. Bartlett, Walter Brueggemann, Cynthia M. Campbell, Susan R. Garrett, Thomas G. Long, Barbara Brown Taylor, William H. Willimon, Frank Yamada, and many more.
In 2013, the eight-volume Feasting on the Gospels expansion series will begin publishing.
