The Liturgical Year by Joan Chittister

  I received this book to review and found it to be rather interesting.  It discusses following the liturgical year and how it helps us to develop a deeper relationship with Christ and an understanding of the feasts and their importance.  Though I did enjoy the read, it was not exactly what I had in mind.  I was hoping for a bit more depth than what the book goes into. I was looking for more historical significance and instead felt as if the author just kept saying the same things only in different words.

The book does discusses Easter, Christmas, Lent, Holy Week to name a few of the celebrations.  I do wonder if I got as much from the book or did not get as much from the book having a Catholic background vs. someone without any knowledge of Catholicism.

Overall I did enjoy the book.  I would recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about the liturgical year and it’s celebrations.  It was an easy and enjoyable read.
