Lectionary for Sundays & Solemnities Study Edition
The revised Lectionary retains the majesty of the NRSV text, benefiting from the rigorous translation practices of current biblical scholarship. Original texts are rendered into contemporary English with increased fidelity. Skillfully edited and beautifully designed for ease of proclamation, every aspect of the new Lectionary contributes to the dignified proclamation of the Word.
- Readings are presented in a clear single-column format with distinct sense lines.
- Newly designed titles, references and instructions are printed in the traditional red, separating them from the proclaimed text.
- Specially selected matt paper reduces glare under harsh lighting conditions
- Larger, bolder elegant typeface facilitates legibility in low lighting
Clearly structured tables are easy to use and will facilitate preparation:
