At Home with the Word® guides you to a deeper understanding of the Sunday Scriptures, providing the readings for this liturgical year, insights from Scripture scholars, and action steps. The book also includes prayers and citations for weekday readings.
The covers of At Home with the Word® are telling the story of salvation history through eight colorful episodes that depict the unfolding relationship between humanity and the Triune God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The series began in 2017 with creation; continued in 2018 with God’s covenant with Abraham, in 2019 with Moses leading the people across the dry bed of the Red Sea. The 2020 cover portrays Ezekiel’s vision in the valley of the dry bones and 2021 shows John the Baptist baptizing the Lord. This year shows Mary Magdalene running to tell the disciples the news of the Resurrection. The last two covers show Christ returning to his Father at the Ascension, and the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. Artist Cody F. Miller created the scenes of the covenant with Abraham and Pentecost. William Hernandez painted the vision from Ezekiel, and James B. Janknegt has contributed the other five.
