Is there a Commentary in the Anglican collection that goes with the 1979 Book of Common Prayer Lectionary?

I recently upgraded my collection.  Part of the attraction was indication by the salesperson that the upgrade included a commentary for the lectionary.  I may have incorrectly assumed that he was referring to the lectionary in the 1979 prayer book.

In any case, I have not found this commentary and am hoping that someone may be able to enlighten me.

Thanks in advance for your help.

In Silver packages and up you have:  Feasting on the Word (12 vols.) This should cover all lections from the NEW TESTAMENT but the first readings are divided. 1 year typological and 2 years semi continuous.  The remaining essays were done but not in a print form and FL has made no attempt to offer them to us despite several appeals.

If you upgraded to Anglican Silver or above, he may well have been referring to https://www.logos.com/product/5801/the-lectionary-commentary-theological-exegesis-for-sundays-texts (here a Logos link to tomorrow's lesson on Joshua 5, written by Tremper Longman III)  which follows the RCL which seems close to the 1979 prayer book readings (the psalm reading for tomorrow differs)

Both commentaries mentioned by Dan and NB are based on the RCL not the BCP traditional readings. There are some older volumes of sermons based on the traditional BCP but I'm not aware of any commentaries on the readings.

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

MJ is right of course, but one can usually find ones covering the topic by looking in the RCL lectionaries. I am honestly not sure if a commentary set or book was ever done on just the 1979 BCP lectionary... which was very similar tot he 78 LBW and several others of the period most adapter from one another and all inspired and mostly derived from the 1969 Catholic lectionary.
