The homilies collected here were delivered, and worked over, during the last decade at the Three Hierarchs Chapel of St Vladimir s Seminary. These homilies follow the three main liturgical cycles of the year: the Paschal cycle, the Nativity Theophany cycle, and the Theotokos cycle. Following these cycles has meant, inevitably, that some feasts (such as Transfiguration and the Elevation of the Precious and Life-giving Cross) are not touched, nor are those Sundays that belong to ordinary time, non-festal periods. Nevertheless, these cycles not only map out our year, but also our lives as we learn to grow in conformity to Christ.

Review:

The collection of homilies by Fr John Behr appeals to a wide audience. Covering the feasts and fasts of the liturgical year of the Church, this book can be read throughout the year. Succinct and limited in length, these homilies are nonetheless rich in substance and impart invaluable insight to the attentive reader. Clearly, the author s deep theological knowledge and liturgical expertise are discernable and duly appreciated throughout the book. ~Archbishop Demetrios of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America --Book Cover

By giving word to the Word, Fr Behr does not aim to captivate
the individual with psychological appeals, but rather to include
man in a liberated space-time where he or she will acquire freedom
from all individualistic priorities.... The readers of Homilies
for the Cycles of the Year are led beyond the word toward the
original source of the word, which is a Person. This collection of
homilies shows that in Eucharistic synaxis we will see and meet
God through our communion with others.
~Bishop Maxim (Vasiljevic)
Serbian Orthodox Church in North & South America --Book Cover
