I ran across this quote:

Finally, we note that the German Lutheran Churches did not accept the three-year Roman Lectionary as a basis for their lectionary reform. Rather, they revised the historic one-year lectionary (that had previously been “ecumenical”) and added to it a six-year series of preaching texts related to the Gospel. As in the other lectionaries, an Old Testament reading was added to the historic Epistle and Gospel.25

Frank C. Senn, Introduction to Christian Liturgy (Minneapolis, MN: Fortress Press, 2012), 67.

Can anyone point me to this lectionary and the additional preaching texts?

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Shalom MJ!

Are you looking for the 1977/1978 German Lutheran lectionary ("Perikopenordnung")?

I could point you to a print edition. All the online results however already show the new revised lectionary that will be used starting december 2018:

Thank you - yes, the revised version will meet my needs.
