Writing in a homiletical style, prominent Bible scholar Elizabeth Achtemeier provides expositions on all the Old Testament texts contained in Cycle B of the Revised Common and Lutheran Lectionaries.

Infused with her customary insight into the Hebrew scriptures, this collection of Achtemeier’s contributions to the preaching journal Emphasis furnishes a plethora of fruitful starting points for preparing sermons rooted in the Bible yet connected to modern life. This volume is not just for preachers and homiletics students—it is also a powerful commentary for study groups and personal devotional reading. Achtemeier’s unrelenting focus on the promises of God appearing in the Old Testament and fulfilled in the New Testament, combined with her outstanding scholarship, make these essays a priceless resource that will enrich anyone looking for a clearer understanding of the Scriptures.
