Based on his own journey through the lectionary and his life as a writer, teacher, and disciple, Jay Cormier brings more than 20 years of experience to these reflections on the Sunday gospels from the Gospel of Mark. Readers find both a practical/contemporary application of the 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.

"This prolific author whose books have been an excellent resource for homilists has broadened his intended audience for this latest book to include others around the parish 'table.' These inspirations for conversations on the Sunday readings from Mark's Gospel (year B) are intended also for catechists, RCIA teams, and other individuals looking for a more complete connection with the words of Mark's Gospel. The references to the Biblical readings to be read throughout the liturgical year are applicable to the common lectionary of many Protestant churches as well as the Roman Lectionary. Cormier's meditations include references to life stories, literary quotes, and things he has seen and read in daily life to which he shows a particular awareness of our Christian mission. His book begins with Advent (the beginning of the Church Year), Christmas, Lent, The Easter Triduum, Easter, and then the Sundays of Ordinary Time. Each conversation starter is brief -- two or three pages -- and is followed by a delightful original prayer. Table Talk offers something to get us started to talk about, think about, and act on from the Gospel reading we have just heard proclaimed. Cormier ends his book with notes, which really are the sources for some of the stories he has used. He had drawn from a wide range of sources in this creative collection of conversations started for making Mark's words our own. The book is recommended to all those cited above and should find a place in parish libraries." - Arnold Rzepecki, Catholic Library WorldAbout the Author:
