Bo Giertz's Help for the Historic Lectionary

I don't know how I missed this, but I did. Amazon lists the reprint date as June, 2000. I think that must be wrong. The book itself only lists the original date of the English publication, 1967. But this is a gem and well worth $15.

Here is what Rev. Todd Peperkorn wrote almost four years ago:

"This little volume, recently republished by Lutheran Legacy Publishing, is a delightful resource for churches and pastors that use the historic lectionary. It’s 141 pages, and costs only $15.

There are two pages on each Sunday of the Church Year. In it he takes a doctrine that the Sunday proclaims, has 20-30 Scripture references in the margin, and then has 4-5 paragraphs on the doctrine based on the text for the Sunday. The Scripture references are invaluable, as they draw the reader/hearer/preacher into the whole of the Scriptures for each given Sunday.

For anyone who preaches, this volume is a wonderful addition and useful tool. For anyone who listens to preaching, this will deepen preparation for the divine service, and receiving what our Lord would give to us in the proclamation of his word."

Available from Amazon as a paperback or as an e-pub book (should work on anything that can read .pdfs, including the i-pad).
