    1. Having known only the Christian lectionary, and being frustrated with its selections for Ordinary Time in summer, I treasure this Beacon Press supplement unlocking the wealth of the Torah.

    2. I’ve read this through a few times, different readings for each day. One of ,y very favorite commonplace books.
