6.0% ""Worship is the celebration of the presence of salvation that has broken through Jesus Christ and now permenantly resides in the world. Salvation has come now—it is here today.”"

10.0% ""Liturgy has been the primary way the Church has handed down the faith to future generations." (pg 27) Just thinking of this the liturgy is where I learned the Lord's Prayer, the Words of Institution, 1 John 1:8-9, Psalm 51:10-12, and a number of other passages. That's not to mention the three year series of lectionary readings."

21.0% "The section on the connections between Passover/Seder with the Sacrament of the Altar is very good."

32.0% "Chapter 5 in short: What we read in the gospels Jesus is still doing now wherever His Word is preached and Sacraments administered. Just describes this truth well."
06/01/2012 page 122
40.0% "Neat stuff on where we get the eschatological term "eighth day", that is the day of Resurrection from. I don't remember talking about that at seminary at all. I'm not sure that Peter referencing the 8 souls in the Ark as a proof text for "The 8th Day" is exegetically valid though. I'll need to give it more study and thought, but it's kind of a quibble overall."

58.0% "Good content, but dry delivery. It's taking me a while to get through this one. I would still recommend it as it helps in our appreciation of the Divine Service."
