Thousands of Lutheran pastors, worship planners, parish organists, and music directors have already found Scriptural And Topical Indices To LBW (CSS No.5811) by Paul E. Schuessler, Thomas R. Bartsch, and David P. Rebeck to be an invaluable planning tool for weekly services and special events.
Now, users of the Lutheran three-year lectionary will want to add this companion volume, Lectionary Indices To LBW, to their worship libraries.
Compiled by a Lutheran parish organist, this index is a thorough guide to LBW hymns for each scripture selection in the three-year lectionary. Listed are hymns for all three cycles (A, B and C) -- including the First Lesson, Second Lesson, Gospel, Psalm, Verse, and Offertory for each week. Hymns are listed by number and title (making this resource useful to many who do not use the LBW, as well), and are arranged chronologically by Sunday for each lectionary year.
If you already have a copy of Scriptural And Topical Indices To LBW, you will want to make a space on your bookshelf for Lectionary Indices To LBW. (If you don't have either, you will want to make a space for both!)
