    • I first read this book maybe 40 years ago, and was not very impressed with it. But recently I read other comments from St. Nicholas Cabasilas that impressed me and caused me to want to read this one again. But I had a similar reaction to my first reading. I just didn't find it full of insight. It is interesting to see that to a large extent the Liturgy as St. Nicholas knew it in his day is the same as we do today.


    • A beautiful exposition on the heavenly banquet by St. Nicholas Cabasilas. Truly a treasure for those who wish to understand the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom.


    • A 14th century commentary on the Divine liturgy a lot of illustrative symbolism, this book is great around but especially for liturgical history and mystical participation in the service.
