I read this book last month and I think you'll find it to be a great, honest, historical assessment. Wybrew has a great amount of respect for the Byzantine liturgy, but he also doesn't pull his punches. It's definitely worth the time.
Agree. Good overview. Taft is a reliable "authority," too, although I am a little uncomfortable with the fact that neither of these gentlemen are Orthodox. Gets us a little bit back into some of the issues that popped up with Archbishop Williams at SVS.
I guess the question might be: What are you looking for? A guide to what's going on? Spiritual reflections/meditations? Technical discussion of liturgical theology? Etc., etc.
