"… is designed to provide help to people who have finally reached the awareness that they need it."
—Peter J. Gomes in The Good Book Harvard University Memorial Church
"These studies help link the sacred stories in the Bible to our sacred stories in the world today. Not only does the reader glean wisdom from the Bible, the editors share wisdom from Christians throughout the ages. This wonderful resource draws one into a closer relationship with the 'Word of God' and the 'Word made flesh'." —Sr. Elizabeth Mills St. Mary’s Convent Sewanee, TN
"USS offers a valuable resource for those of us who yearn for the wisdom and grace of Scripture, week by week. Following the common lectionary with this fine book will yield great rewards for those who seek to 'Read, Mark, Learn,' and inwardly digest holy writ."

"Beginning with the First Sunday of Advent, December 2nd, all Episcopal Churches are expected to start using the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL) for the weekly Sunday readings during worship. ... Those who like to study the lections each week will need to find appropriate new resources for that study. For those of you who, like me, prefer to work with an actual book or written commentary Understanding the Sunday Scriptures: A Companion to the Revised Common Lectionary Year A is now available. It is from H. King Oehmig, the editor of the previous Understanding the Sunday Scriptures, Episcopal Edition. ... The new book also includes the Collect of the Day, a reflection, several questions to discuss, and a space for journaling each week. This book, which covers the entire year, is available for $21.95 from our shopping page or 800-722-4124. It is comprehensive and based on good scholarship."
