Just in time for a book a day November 9

Left posting until very late today, as have been enjoying a day off, or most of a day off - there always seem to be a few things to do!

So for today

A book I reviewed for Christian Marketplace Magazine a few months back...

Presenting a theological reflection on the understanding of Christian life and transformation this book is a challenging, well researched, thought provoking piece resounding with depth and creativity. Written by an accomplished theologian and drawing on Church history, liturgy, poetry, art and hymnody this is not a book to be taken lightly, but one which rewards careful study. Though firmly rooted in liturgical tradition – something that is more pronounced as the book progresses – there is an exploration of the nature of worship and the way that God changes us as we encounter Him in prayer and praise which offers material for Christians of any tradition. Irving explores deep theological concepts with a deftness and clarity which makes it well worth the time and effort it takes to read this properly. Well worth reading if someone wants to begin exploring Christian tradition, theology, worship or liturgy in some depth. Highly recommended.
