by Jay Cormier

Based on his own journey through the lectionary as a writer, teacher and disciple, Jay Cormier brings more than 25 years experience to these reflections on the Sunday readings from the Gospel of Mark.  As in the two previous editions in the Table Talk series, readers will find practical and contemporary applications of each Gospel reading as well as exegetical notes illuminating its background.  Cormier is already an irreplaceable resource for many homilists, catechists, RCIA teams, and individuals who use his insights in their daily work and prayer.  Table Talk follows the pericopes of both the Roman Catholic lectionary and the common lectionary used by many Protestant churches.

“Table Talk offers fresh insights on the Sunday readings.  Jay Cormier has once again found fascinating ‘connections’ between God’s Word and our everyday lives.  This will be a great resource for anyone who wishes to discuss and pray the Scriptures or with others who love the Word.”
— Rev. Daniel E. Harris, C.M.
Associate Professor of Homiletics, The Aquinas Institute

“In stories, incidents, quotations for literature and life, Jay Cormier roots the narratives and sayings of the lectionary Gospel readings in the stuff of daily life, and in the imaginative life of the faithful believer.  These immensely creative and helpful meditations, with their brief and graceful concluding prayers, should prove invaluable to preacher and teacher alike.”
— The Rev. J. Barrie Shepherd
Presbyterian minister and author of Whatever Happened to Delight?: Preaching the Gospel in Poetry and Parable
