Also read this book for class, and I definitely wouldn't have gotten through it as leisure reading! The writing style was a bit technical and repetitive. In the end that style worked well for a textbook, and I did appreciate Martos's methodical approach to exploring the history and development of these 7 important ceremonies. In his thoroughness, he did not shy away from the more controversial topics in our church today, such as priestly celibacy, providing a balanced look at both sides in these kinds of issues.
