Description Endorsements Excerpts Table of Contents
In Treasures Old and New Gail Ramshaw illuminates forty primary images from the three-year lectionary. With each of the images she considers related terms, exploring a total of nearly two hundred words and phrases in light of biblical history, typological relationships, poetic nuances, metaphoric meanings, and liturgical year connections.

Sample constellations of images include:
  • Creation: beginning, creation, firstborn, new creation, virgin birth
  • Fire: ashes, burning bush, fire, tongues
  • Light: blindness, darkness, day, light, morning star, night, sight, star, sun
  • Treasure: gifts, gold-frankincense-myrrh, pearl, rich fool, treasure, widow's coin
  • Water: exodus, flood, Jordan, river, sea, water, well
Treasures Old and New offers a guide to rich symbolic speech for those who preach and teach, yet remains accessible and inviting to the reader seeking a resource for devotion and meditation on the scriptures. Extensively indexed to support the Revised Common Lectionary as well as the Roman Catholic lectionary.
