Ponder: Contemplative Bible Study accompanies all hearers and preachers of the Word as they pray with and ponder the Sunday readings throughout the liturgical year. Everything needed for a rich experience of lectio divina and biblical exploration is provided: the full text of the Sunday readings, concise commentary, engaging reflections, and clear guidance on how to use this resource alone or with a group. This three volume set includes Ponder volumes for Years A, B, and C of the Sunday lectionary.

Mahri Leonard-Fleckman is assistant professor of Hebrew Bible in the Religious Studies Department at the College of the Holy Cross. She is a contributor to Give Us This Day, the co-author of Ruth in the Wisdom Commentary Series, and the author of The House of David: Between Political Formation and Literary Revision (Fortress Press). Leonard-Fleckman has years of experience as a lectionary-based Bible study facilitator at her home parish in Worcester, Massachusetts.


“When our Small Christian Community started using Ponder, we immediately had deeper and more insightful interactions. Ponder offers thoughtful reflections after each reading and a final inspiration and challenging call to action at the end of each week’s readings. The introductory material also provides helpful suggestions about how to use the book. For any individual or group that hopes to deepen their spiritual experience and understanding of the Sunday Scriptures, Ponder is an invaluable resource.”
Libby Van Cleve, St. Thomas More Small Church Community at Yale University
