A well-designed book to move the liturgical pastor through the Lenten season. The book includes complete service and extended commentaries for each Sunday of Lent. Also provided are complete mid-week services - including prepared homilies.Like other books in the series, the extended commentaries approaches each text from four perspectives:A Theological PerspectiveA Pastoral PerspectiveAn Exegetical PerspectiveAn Homiletical PerspectiveThese overviews provides the pastor a number of ideas and concepts from which to build his or her sermon.Along with the commentaries designed to help the pastor prepare a sermon, each entry includes a Children's Sermon, designed for use with a younger audience, hymnal suggestions (using multiple sources), responsive and unison readings for each week's service.These are all positive elements included in the book. However, there are two concerns:The book is designed for one time use. I would like to think the publisher might consider publishing updated or new editions each year in preparation for Lent.The Kindle version of the book was more difficult to use than than the PDF (with DRM) version designed for use with Adobe Digital Editions. The Kindle version seems to have lost some of the formatting and details that made the book useful to the pastor preparing for Sunday's service. To be honest, I came close to not reviewing this book after seeing the Kindle edition. I changed my mind only after seeing the PDF presentation. I expect a printed copy of the book would more closely duplicate the PDF version - and be extremely useful.For the pastor looking for a comprehensive Lenten program this would be a wonderful tool.
