Our experience of the Gospel readings can be enhanced by a reflective examination of the history, meaning and context of the scriptures.
Hearers of The Word – Praying and Exploring the Readings for Advent and Christmas: Year C by Kieran J O’Mahony OSA is the seventh volume in the popular series and the first for Year C. It explores the context and background, along with commentaries, on the Sunday readings for the liturgical period from Advent to the 2nd Sunday of Year C. The prayers and prayer guidance that the author provides allow for a multi-dimensional understanding of the Gospel in terms of their historical and theological significance.
Hearers of the Word may be helpful to those involved in Lectio Divina, either individually or in a group. Combining spirituality and contemporary biblical scholarship, it is unique among Gospel commentaries on the market today.
