Book Review: Journeying with Matthew, Lectionary Year A

Book review by Shirley Claughton

As we enter Year A (2019) in our three year liturgical cycle, this book is one of the most inspiring small commentaries available for groups or individuals.

Journeying with Matthew, Lectionary Year A, Bringing the Gospel alive for groups and individuals by James Woodward, Paula Gooder and Mark Price RRP $24.95

It is packed with original poetry, meditation and reflections as well as an informative Biblical introduction.

Starting with an inviting and informative discussion on the shape of the Gospel, storytelling technique and the main theological themes of the Gospel, the chapters cover the major seasons of the Church Year.

Paula Gooder helps us into the shape of the gospel through a discussion of the person of Matthew, and each of the contributing authors work together to make this book accessible and stimulating.

A study group will delight in finding so much material to work with, but be aware that it covers the whole liturgical year, so pace the material.

Each chapter concludes with 'Actions, Conversations, Questions, Prayer' which leads to thoughtful reflection and discussion.

The Journeying with Series also includes, the Gospels of Mark, Luke and John in separate, equally exciting volumes.

All volumes are in stock at St John's Books, Fremantle.
