"After having ordered from the Episcopal Bookstore online I was anxious to visit them while in Seattle this past August.
The warmth present in this place personified the friendly, efficient service I had come to know. I will return not only online but with any future visits to Seattle.
Your peaceful presence in serving customers is truly a gift to those of us who have come to know you, either in person or online...thanks!"
A Lector’s Guide & Commentary to the RCL: Year C
A Lector’s Guide and Commentary assists those whose calling, responsibility, and privilege it is to proclaim the Word of God through the public reading of Holy Scripture. It provides a brief, reliable commentary for each lectionary reading, and then offers suggestions for how the text can be delivered, so that the biblical Story might have its full impact on the Christian community gathered for worship. Pronunciations for unfamiliar words and names are also included.
This volume includes Notes, Commentary, Suggestions for Lectors, and Pronunciation Guide (where needed) for each Lesson in Year C of the Revised Common Lectionary. It does not include the text of the lessons. For that you need a different book, perhaps a Bible, or the book suggested below.
The Guide is for use by any congregation or tradition that follows the Revised Common Lectionary, and even includes the adaptations authorized for use in The Episcopal Church.
Although designed first and foremost for lectors and lay readers, the Guide has also been written with other groups and uses in mind. For example, it can be used to trigger discussions in a Sunday school class or small group Bible study, or to serve as a resource for personal study, reflection, and devotion. It can also assist lay Eucharistic ministers when delivering the Word and Sacrament to the homebound and hospitalized, and even function as a first stop for preachers and teachers.
This volume is bound with a lay flat Otabind binding with a long lasting Kivar cover. The book measures 6 inches wide by 9 inches tall

This will tell you about what the lesson is about and how to read it. This book has helped me as I am still scared when I read. This book won't get you over being scared, but it will help you focse on what you are reading.
