Has anyone read this book?

It's seems quite interesting, but, a bit on the pricey side ($40 US).

I'd like to know if it's as good as it seems from the short description:

This book provides in-depth yet easy to understand commentary on the entire Divine Liturgy, based on the writings of the Holy Fathers along with actual events and experiences of holy priests, monks and lay people of our times. This book will be of great interest to any priest or a lay person.
In English, 557 pgs, softcover & printed in Greece.

Holy Father Patrick, thank you for your help!

I've read it! It is interesting, but where I can see really using it is in discussing the meaning and impact of various steps performed in the Liturgy. Usually I try to focus on Liturgical meanings one Sunday a month in my past sermons, and this book is full of events and anecdotes that can help explain or emphasise certain points.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for bringing this book to my attention.  It looks like something I would find interesting---could be my book or the 40 Day Fast.

Bless, Father!

Thanks so much.  That is exactly what I am in need of.  I am always interested in all the symbolism surrounding the Liturgy.

Now I cannot wait to get it shipped!  Smiley

Thanks, again!
