This is the ninth and final volume in the Hearers series, bringing to a close the series of Gospel reflections, covering the three years of the liturgical cycle.
With verse-by-verse commentary, a detailed explanation of the Old and New Testament background behind each reading, and suggestions for prayer and reflection, Hearers of the Word asks us to rejoice and go outside, because Christ is risen, the first fruits of all who have fallen asleep!
