The Word in Worship : Preaching in a Liturgical Context
Click here for this book
Scripture, says William Skudlarek, should be the foundation of all worship. Closely examining both the Roman Catholic and Protestant lectionaries, he stresses that the best preaching and liturgical expression are biblically centered. A balanced presentation of these two, with scripture as their common element, results in the most vital and meaningful of worship experiences. Dr. Skudlarek ably reveals how the lectionary is flexible so that a pastor can preach from it year-round, yet stay relevant to the day's issues. He also demonstrates the close relation of preaching to the sacraments, while paying special attention to preaching the Eucharist. He then does the same for baptisms, weddings, and funerals. This is a volume that both Protestants and Roman Catholics will find highly useful.
