We recommend in particular this substantial book by Kieran O’Mahoney, which provides comprehensive and interesting background material for each Sunday and festival in the Advent and Christmas season, and will prove invaluable to ministers preparing sermons and presentations on the lectionary readings. O’Mahoney balances his excellent scholarship with practical wisdom, thus providing original insights into the familiar seasonal readings.
