The Text This Week
The purpose of this website is to provide links to resources for study, reflection, and liturgy which correspond to the RCL readings you may be using for study, teaching & preaching. The lectionary tables on this site are the easiest way I could think of to provide easy, lectionary-relevant access to study and liturgy resources. I am not attempting to provide calendars for official readings for any particular denomination. Please check your denominational sources for the official readings for any particular occasion. If/when you find any errors at The Text This Week, I’d appreciate it if you’d let me know about them.
At The Text This Week, you will find conveniently organized links to a treasure of resources for study, reflection, and liturgy pertaining to each week’s lectionary texts – both as individual pericopes and as a group of readings within their liturgical setting – a virtual study desk of sorts, laid out for your weekly exegetical work. Try the Art Concordance if you’re looking for lists of artwork indexed according to Biblical themes. Currently the art concordance and the movie concordance are not updated. I’m working toward an easier way to collect and manage this information.
The web’s newest, most helpful, and downright coolest resource for preachers.
Okay, so I realize that calling our site the “most helpful” and “downright coolest” resource for preachers may sound like a big claim. But I actually think it’s true. And, to be frank, if it does sound like we’re biting off a lot to chew on this small part of the web, I think that’s okay. Because our ambitions for this site run high. Really high.
In short, we’re out to inspire better preaching! We’re getting at that by offering timely, compelling, and trustworthy content for today’s working preachers. Further, we’re doing all this for free, as a ministry of the Center for Biblical Preaching at Luther Seminary. That’s right – all these resources are free, given away to inspire more faithful and creative proclamation of the Word!
