No other book has had a greater influence on my own formation than this one. Wells works to show the theological rootedness of our Sunday liturgy, and how those practices in turn shape us to be more like Christ.

“St Laurence gathered the poor, the blind, and the lame together in the church in Rome and brought in the rapacious Roman authorities, proclaiming, “Here are the riches of the Church!”
