66 Texts from 66 Books by Paul Deterding offers a preacher the opportunity to preach a text from each book of the entire Bible in one church year. This preaching schedule is not meant to displace a regular use of a common lectionary, but to give pastors and congregations an opportunity to look at the entire sweep of the biblical witness, especially at a time when biblical literacy is in decline. In order to cover all 66 books of the Bible, the series offers a sermon text for every Sunday in a church year, plus texts for three midweek Advent services, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, six midweek Lenten services, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Thanksgiving.
