Nathan Mitchell's book is both an introduction to liturgy, worship, and sacraments for beginners and an adventure that guides the reader to the place where God's surprising self is revealed and the human soul is moved to awe and love. This book invites us to excavate depths concealed by ever-busier, ever-shallower, uni-dimensional lives. To recover those depths is to learn that worship can surprise and lead us to the divine depths of creation.
