This Transforming Word: Cycle BCommentary on the Readings for Sunday and Feast Days of Cycle B on the Lectionary through 2024, including full Scripture passages from The Message: Catholic/Ecumenical Edition
Each Sunday and feast of the church year, the transforming word of God echoes its challenge. We hear it through stories of patriarchs and matriarchs who dare to embark in new directions trailing an untested Divinity. It shouts in the oracles of wild prophets madly in love with an unlikely future. It sings in psalms and canticles. It beckons in Lady Wisdom. It invites us to come and see in gospels, and to repent and believe in letters of instruction. Creation testifies to it. Apocalypse mystically reveals it. And all the while this longing word is calling through the centuries, eternity waits in hushed silence for the freely rendered human response. Yours. Mine. Everybody's.

Alice Camille has written THE book for breaking open the Sunday readings- for homilists, teachers, RCIA groups, small communities, youth ministry, and anyone else who wants to let the weekly readings enter deeply into their hearts. This is an amazing resource. All the readings are provided from The Message (a new translation of the Bible into contemporary English) along with a brilliant commentary on each. She even provides carefully considered weekly reflection questions. All in all, this is a terrific resource. And to top it off, it's bound in such a way that it lays open in your hands like a Lectionary. Really, this is the best book I have seen on the Sunday readings in many years. Great Job! Bill Huebsch
