Few things are more publicly embarrassing than stumbling over a word during the readings at Mass. Avoid a fiasco by learning the correct pronunciation of hundreds of biblical names with Lector's Guide to Biblical Pronunciations, Updated.
This very popular bestseller has been completely updated and expanded to correspond with the new Lectionary. With nearly double the entries of the original edition, it is still the same small size that will fit neatly into your pocket, purse, or out of sight on the Ambo. So reasonably priced, every lector should have his or her own copy.

This handy little book is a great reference for Lectors. Sometimes our lector workbook won't have the pronunciation for a word and it is difficult to find someone to help you.So glad that I found this resource. It even has some definitions and is organized by the liturgical year. Reasonably priced is also a plus.

Best Help for ALL Lectors

I have been using an internet bible pronunciations website which is excellent since you can also hear the word pronounced. However, this little booklet is so handy and so easy to use, it is much faster than going to my computer. I recommend that all Church parishes provide one to each of their Lectors. I gave two out to friends who are Lectors in my parish and they think the booklet is great, also. Best Uses: Reference; Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader; Pros: Easy To Read, Informative, Must Have, So very helpful, Well Written

This book is so helpful and easy to use. No more guessing on how to correctly pronounce some of the biblical words/names. Every lector should have one of these books.
