The Christian Year: A guide for worship and preaching

Author: Robin Knowles Wallace

In this concise introduction, Dr. Knowles Wallace gives practical worship and preaching suggestions for each season of the Christian year as it relates to the Revised Common Lectionary. She describes the unique features and colors of each season as well as its historical overview, theological grounding, and significance for faith formation. The book gives ways to draw upon the gifts of existing congregations while seeking to expand their witness and faith formation.

The author walks the reader through each season, giving sample services with suitable lectionary readings, hymns, prayers, and spatial and visual suggestions for each season.  These helps are adaptable for traditional or contemporary worship styles.

In The Christian Year, Robin Knowles Wallace presents creative ideas for naming God, preaching, worship, arts and singing for each Sunday and special days of the Revised Common Lectionary, as well as an excellent overview of the history and meaning of the church year.  Knowles Wallace’s many years serving local churches keep her ideas practical and immediately useful to Christian leaders everywhere.
