"A richly hued companion to volumes of Feasting on the Word, Daily Feast provides a simply structured way to enter into deeper reflection on the weekly texts of the Revised Common Lectionary. Gathering pithy, insightful, often provocative quotes from gifted contemporary theologians and teachers, it presents a daily path into personal reflection and prayerful response to the profoundly challenging and joyful message of the gospel." Marjorie J. Thompson, author of Soul Feast: An Invitation to the Christian Spiritual Life.

The Daily Feast devotional follows the pattern of the Feasting on the Word commentaries closely. It too is based on the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL). The beginning of each week has a snippet of each of the lectionary texts. Then, throughout the week, each reading is given a place in the devotional. The Scripture text is listed and the reader is supposed to read that out of the Bible themselves. Then, a quote from the extensive work of the commentary is included about the Scripture passage. A question or two for thought are included. After that, each days devotion ends with a brief prayer.
I have a copy of Year B of this devotional on my Kindle, and I have a hard copy provided by the publisher for Year C. In my experience this devotional is helpful and insightful. It helps me meditate on the readings I will hear or preach on each Sunday, so I have already been pondering each of the texts before I hear them in worship. Because of this, I feel that my devotional life and my worship life are knit together with this commentary. Also, since it is scheduled by the Christian year instead of the calendar year, it is a devotional that will be timeless, and could be returned to very easily every three years.
The hard copy of the book has a pleasing presentation. It is in an imitation leather binding that feels good when held. A bookmark is built in.
I really recommend this devotional to mainline Christians everywhere. The scholarship is ecumenical, and the organization is first rate.
Each daily devotion contains Scripture passages for the coming Sunday, excerpts from the "Feasting on the Word" commentary, a response, and a prayer. This serves to prepare its readers in every way for their worship on Sunday.
If you are a pastor using the RCL or a church member that's worship is based on the RCL this is an indespensible resource for preparing your heart, soul, and mind for weekly worship. I only wish that the publisher had made it availabe in Kindle format as well.
