This book, Cultural World of the Apostles Year B, gives the reader a deeper reading and experience of the second readings offered each Sunday at Mass. Cultural World of the Apostles contains essays that offer historical and literary information on the second readings that discuss the culture that the apostles were experiencing during their lives with suggestions for comparisons with western culture today. These suggestions plus links to the gospels encourage the reader to explore applications of the lessons found in the second readings to modern life today. Because the second readings have been shortened the author, John J Pilch, feels that readers don't get sufficient context to interpret the texts in a meaningful way so in Cultural World of the Apostles he offers broader literary context for each reading. Looking ahead of time at the essay found in Cultural World of the Apostles about the second reading for a particular Sunday will make that reading much more meaningful and interesting when it is heard during Mass. Cultural World of the Apostles is a fascinating look at the culture the apostles were a part of and how they were influenced by that culture.
