A Women’s Lectionary for the Whole Church Year

Wilda Gafney

( Church Publishing )

The next installment in the critically acclaimed lectionary series that focuses on women’s stories.

In this second volume of the three-volume Women’s Lectionary for the Whole Church, widely praised womanist bible scholar and priest Wilda Gafney selects scripture readings that emphasize women’s stories. Focusing especially on the Gospel of Mark, Year B of A Women’s Lectionary features Gafney’s fresh, inclusive, and thought-provoking translations of every reading, alongside commentary on each reading. Designed for liturgical use or scriptural study, this resource offers a new perspective on the Bible and the liturgical year.

“Gafney’s paradigm-shifting scholarship will influence biblical preaching and teaching for generations to come.” ―National Catholic Reporter
