    This is the last (so far) of Christopher Hall's 'with the Fathers' series which I've been reading the last few months, initially as a Lentan reading series which took rather longer than I anticipated to read. I guess, I shouldn't be surprised because they aren't exactly light reading, even if they are excellent theological writing. The whole series explains the church father's approach to the Scriptures or Theology or Spirituality with great clarity and applies it to the modern world with great [...]

    Christopher Hall has done Christians a great service by providing readable, engaging, educational and inspiring works that shed light on the early church. First came Reading Scripture with the Church Fathers and then Learning Theology with the Church Fathers. Now comes this book, a look at the worship life of the early church.The best thing about these books is they are approachable for any Christian interested in the history of the church. I could see pastors and teachers using these books in c [...]

    A good overview on Early Church Fathers thoughts & practices concerning baptism, Eucharist, prayer, and sacred space (desert monks). i've been reading some of the ECF works as well. We Protestants often skip AD 100 - 1500 and begin with the Reformation. i'm finding that there is a lot to learn from the first 400yrs!

    I'm having trouble getting into this book, but it has nothing to do with the material. Dr. Hall is an excellent writer who makes a connection with the Church's wider story extremely accessible. My problem is the absolutely terrible job the publisher did with the eBook conversion. Footnotes aren't hyperlinked, and the formatting is painful. Dr. Hall's work deserves better!

    This book is one of the best books I've read on prayer, the sacraments, and worship. Devotional while still being scholarly, minutes spent reading this book were not wasted. It made me reconsider how I am praying, worshiping, practicing the spiritual disciplines and again realize the depth of God's love for us and how that love continually transforms our lives.

    A little on the educational college text side. I think I was looking for something more devotional. Great background on why we do some of the things we do, and the depth of their significance.
