I started this book several years ago, reading only the chapters that applied to the church season we were in at the time. This time, I read it from start to finish. In my opinion, the latter is the best way to read this book. I like how Black continues themes of the church year throughout the book. (i.e. Concepts she discusses in Advent are later revisited in the Easter season.) I wish that Black would have been more consistent in the depth she went into each major feast day and season.

This is mostly useful as a utility book. When you get to a certain season and need a refresher on why the ceremonies and liturgy change, refer to that section of the book. Reading it all in one go, as I did, is a bit overwhelming for the amount of detail. But great for its intended use.
