Feast of Faith by Archbishop Paul of Finland is wonderful. It explains the Liturgy, all the symbolize that goes along with it, and more.
"Let the mouth also fast from disgraceful speeches and railings. For what does it profit if we abstain from fish and fowl and yet bite and devour our brothers and sisters? The evil speaker eats the flesh of his brother and bites the body of his neighbor. "
— St. John Chrysostom

The ones I remember reading, in order of preference...

A Commentary on the Divine Liturgy, by St. Nicholas Cabasilas
Let Us Attend, A Journey Through the Orthodox Divine Liturgy, by Lawrence R. Farley
On the Divine Liturgy, by St. Germanus of Constantinople

EDIT--I also remember reading a book about scripture in the liturgy by... hmm... Michael Azkoul maybe? Or Archbp. Lazar? I don't recall...
