Preaching Resources for the Season of Creation


 
The following book contains commentaries on the lessons for the three years of the Season of Creation.
The Season of Creation: A Preacher's Commentary edited by Norman Habel, David Rhoads, and Paul Santmire (Fortress Press, 2011) As the global climate crisis worsens, many churches have sought to respond by instituting a movement to observe a liturgical season of creation. Scholars who have pioneered the connections between biblical scholarship, ecological theology, liturgy, and homiletics provide here a comprehensive resource for preaching and leading worship in this new season. Included are theological and practical introductions to observance of the season, biblical texts for twelve Sundays in the three-year lectionary cycle, and astute commentary to help preachers and worship leaders guide their congregations into deeper connection with our imperiled planet.

This volume is a two-part collection of commentaries based on the twelve Sundays of the three-year (four Sundays in each year) cycle of the Season of Creation. Part 1 - Theology, Liturgy, Bible: Engaging the Season. Part 2 - Spirit, Word, Wisdom: Engaging the Sundays and Readings.
