Description - The Cultural World of the Prophets by John J. Pilch

Preachers and liturgy planners will find The Cultural World of the Prophets a companion to John Pilch's The Cultural World of Jesus Sunday by Sunday series and The Cultural World of the Apostles series. Each essay offers historical, literary, and Eastern Mediterranean cultural information about the first reading and responsorial psalm of the liturgy of each Sunday. The Cultural World of the Prophets relates the first reading and responsorial psalm to the Gospel as intended by the architects of the Lectionary. It encourages readers to pursue in-depth study and helps them appreciate the specific verses of the first reading and the responsorial psalm in their own right. John J. Pilch, PhD, teaches Scripture at Georgetown University. His other Liturgical Press publications include The Cultural World of Jesus series; The Cultural World of the Apostles series; The Cultural World of the Prophets series; Cultural Tools for Interpreting the Good News; The Cultural Dictionary of the Bible(Catholic Press Association award winner); The Triduum and Easter Sunday: Breaking Open the Scriptures; Choosing a Bible Translation; Galatians and Romans in The Collegeville Bible Commentary; and articles in The Modern Catholic Encyclopedia, The Collegeville Pastoral Dictionary of Biblical Theology, and The Bible Today.
