Inside the Book:
Readers of the Bible know events on the Catholic Church’s liturgy have scriptural passages referring to them. Many, however, are only familiar with a few. One might be surprised at how many more are there for the reading. The Treasure of the Word: Commentary on Biblical Readings for Sundays, Feast Days, and Solemnities, Cycle B is a life-related meditation on the sacred texts within events of the Catholic Church’s liturgical calendar. Author Isidore Okwudili Igwegbe’s work is intended for everyone, from the layperson to church leader to those in the clergy. Beginning with Advent, each insight is based on his experiences teaching, leading, and breaking the Word of God with mixed Christian congregations in different countries and continents. Each chapter begins with the date and event, followed by a list of scriptural references. Igwegbe’s text satisfies human yearning for the meaning of the Word. It is an exposition of the good news within the good news, a prayerful sharing of the great secret-human fate is God’s fate, and God is an imprudent investor who blesses his capital and his love on every person, everywhere, and every time. This book encourages Christians and all believers to realise they are the centre of God’s attention.
Isidore Okwudili Igwegbe has a doctorate in theological sciences from Pontificias Univerisitas Urbaniana, Rome. A Catholic priest, he currently is a lecturer at Imo State Polytechnic, Owerri, Nigeria.
