I have really enjoyed this first volume. This is the first book I've read from this Author, and he has quite an "easy to read" approach. So I am quite looking forward to the volumes that follow :)

In this first volume, the Author takes quite an intriguing approach to the Reading and Preaching of the Scriptures in the Worship of the Church, by starting back in the Old Testament - and not just from the start of the Synagogue - but going way back, and examining how Prophets and others used Scripture

Probably because the book often seemed to have a Protestant bent or bias to it, I did not find its presentation on some of the biblical preachers all that interesting. It is looking at 'sermons' through the centuries of biblical times into the early church. It just didn't always hold my interest.
