In The Beginning Was The Word allows every person of whatever age who can read and speak to become a leader in worship.

The clear, ringing voice of children and the aging voices of older members help make Sunday worship art of everyone's joy.

Dallas Brauninger takes one lectionary reading for each Sunday and other special days in the life of the church and develops it into a choral reading.

Readings are based on the New Revised Standard Version texts and the Revised Common Lectionary texts.

This is part of a three-book cycle on lectionary readings.

(2-12 actors, 3-5 min.)

"These readings use the voices of men, women, and youth to foster wide participation in the speaking and hearing of scripture. The narrative and conversational style of many passages is preserved in the alternation of voices, allowing the text to come alive both for those who speak and for those who hear." -- Rev. Herbert H. Lambert, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Formerly book editor for Christian Board of Ppublications
