"The Episcopal Bookstore is truly amazing to say the least! My orders always arrive earlier than expected (that never happens in today's world) and it is so easy to find exactly what you are looking for. I even told the manager of the bookstore at my church about how wonderful you are!"
A Lector’s Guide & Commentary to the RCL: Year A
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 A 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, A Lector’s Guide and Commentary 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 is an excellent book for anyone who reads scripture in worship. I especially like that it gies a pronunciation guide for tricky words and all those names. I also like the explanations of the scripture. This book also has the Episcopal lections in it where they differ from the revised lectionary.

Very helpful. Takes the mystery out of pronunciation. Background material helps enhance the context of the reading.

I gave the book as a gift to a friend who is a lay reader and she is finding it most helpful--especially the pronunciation of unusual or difficult words.
By: Frances - Florence, SC
This book is extremely helpful to me as I read a great deal of lessons at our Sunday services.
Explaining how to read some of the passeges and where to enunctiate and where to read in a normal voice etc. is invaluable.
