Feasting on the Word Year A Additional Essays include downloadable essays on the lections that are not covered in the Feasting on the Word print volumes. Essays included are for Year A, from the Day of Pentecost through Proper 28.
The Revised Common Lectionary offers two tracks of Old Testament texts for the Season after Pentecost or Ordinary Time: a semicontinuous track, which moves through stories and characters in the Old Testament, and a complementary track, which ties the Old Testament texts to the theme of the Gospel texts for that day. Some denominational traditions favor one over the other, and not all of the lections are included in the print volumes. Additional essays were developed following the same format as the print volumes to include all lections included in the Revised Common Lectionary for the season after Pentecost.
