Product description

Review

"From the photograph of a peanut-butter-and-jelly-sandwich on the cover, Tish Harrison Warren's debut work, Liturgy of the Ordinary: Sacred Practices in Everyday Life, signals that it's rooted in the quotidian, the humble humdrum of day-after-day existence. This is spiritual guidance for the bed-maker, the teeth-brusher, the traffic-snarled among us. This is one ordinary day turned inside out, its hallowed script revealed, liturgical underpinnings exposed. . . . She beautifully ties making the bed to the Creation story, to God's making beauty from chaos. . . . It's the nitty-gritty of daily work where Warren illuminates holiness. She writes of 'tiny theophanies,' church-bell moments, that jolt her―and us, her readers―to sacred attention. The purity of her vision, the clarity of her writing, makes effortless work of the notion that the small acts of our everydays are what shape us into the sacred vessels we are meant to be." -- Barbara Mahany, the Chicago Tribune, February 28, 2017

"Warren's message flies in the face of our culture's love of distraction and pursuit of extreme sensation. We would do well to slow down for a bit and hear her out. . . .
Liturgy of the Ordinary isn't the first book written in praise of prosaic moments, and Warren's isn't the first voice to counsel slowing down. But Warren admirably explores these themes from both a theological and practical perspective. Her words can help us grasp what my grandfather learned through a lifetime of commonsense faith―and a lot of sweeping: The 'new life into which we're being baptized is lived out in days, hours, and minutes. God is forming us into a new people. And the place of that formation is in the small moments of today.'" -- Jamie A. Hughes, Christianity Today, December 2016

"To live in the vision that Warren is offering―to find sacredness in the everyday practices of life―will require that we engage with these and other institutional realities in our midst. The small stuff, the daily habits―yes. And we must allow these small, daily habits to help us reimagine some of the big stuff―otherwise it will just be small enclaves of quotidian mysterylovers within the larger structures that inhibit us from receiving the gift of the ordinary from God's hand and being shaped to seek the good of others in this world." -- Kristen Deede Johnson, Comment Magazine, December 1, 2016

"This book asks me to look at the ordinariness of my day with new eyes. It is not something to be skipped over in favor of some shining, imaginary future, in which I've magically acquired all the character and virtue I wish I saw in myself. Instead, by God's grace, the daily rhythm of life is the venue―the only venue―in which a recovering idealist can find the beauty and meaning that she seeks." -- Sarah Puryear, The Living Church, March 30, 2017

"In her debut, Anglican priest Warren shows readers how to turn the mundane and often frustrating aspects of daily life into a reflection on the sacred. Working her way through a typical day―her morning routine, busywork such as checking email, fights with her spouse―Warren seamlessly blends together lived realities with theological reflections. Her writing is lyrical and often humorous, and she has a gift for making theological concepts seem easy to understand and (perhaps most importantly) easy to live. Her struggles with coming to terms with the banality of daily life are instantly relatable; for example, she frets that she spends most days doing dishes instead of leading a revolution, or changing diapers instead of ministering to the poor in some far-off region of the world. But she reminds readers that while they 'can get drunk on talk of justification, ecclesiology, pneumatology, Christology, and eschatology . . . these big ideas are borne out―lived, believed, and enfleshed―in the small moments of our day, in the places, seasons, homes, and communities that compose our lives.'" -- Publishers Weekly STARRED Review, November 7, 2016

"If you take time to mull over and digest the feast that Warren offers, then attempt to implement these ideas, significant formation is bound to occur in your life. I am thrilled at what she has offered to the body of Messiah and eagerly anticipate the fruit this wisdom will bear." -- Seedbed.com, June 23, 2017

"There is much in the evangelical church that appeals to the extraordinary or radical expression of faith. This book is a necessary corrective to this tendency by highlighting the importance of our everyday lives to our formation in Christ. In addition, it is one of the best books I’ve read addressing the question of [how] one could live out one’s faith in routine life on a micro level." -- Mark Friesen, Mennonite Brethren Herald

"Framed around one ordinary day, this book explores daily life through the lens of liturgy, small practices, and habits that form us. Each chapter looks at something author Tish Harrision Warren does in a day―making the bed, brushing her teeth, losing her keys―and relates it to spiritual practice as well as to our Sunday worship." -- in All things, December 8, 2017

"Christians often find it more comfortable to embrace the goodness, truth, and beauty of God in faith principles than to transfer the principles to practice. In reality, more time is spent in the ordinary than in the extraordinary. God is present with us in surprising ways through our daily routine, pointing us to his love, grace, and mercy. This book is an invitation to worship him in spirit and truth, each moment of every day." -- Sandra Gray, Christianity Today, December 13, 2017

"
Liturgy of the Ordinary is simple without being reductionistic. It is beautiful without being excessive. It is theological without being heady. And it is orthodox without being pedantic. Walking her readers through a very ordinary day (brushing her teeth, making her bed, fighting with her husband), Warren highlights how all of life is liturgical. For a culture constantly in fear of missing out, Warren points to these sacred everyday rhythms as proof that we're right in the middle of what is happening, if only we’ll take note." -- Lore Ferguson Wilbert, Christianity Today, December 13, 2017

"This is an eminently readable and enjoyable book that draws you into high concept―namely, liturgy in everyday life―through great writing and infectious charm. Warren takes you through a single ordinary day, from waking up in the morning to going to sleep at night, and manages to make connections to just about every important aspect of the Christian life. She is a gifted writer whose stories, rife with humor, teach you deeper things without ever making you feel like you’re being instructed." -- Stan Jantz, Christianity Today, December 13, 2017

"No matter which chapter you’re reading, it's hard not to suffer from writer envy.
Liturgy of the Ordinary is a gracious, gospel-oriented, fantastically un-preachy invitation to be a more integrated believer. Warren takes the most basic components of everyday life and turns them inside out to reveal the extraordinary work of God. You don’t have to be liturgically minded to be helped by her thought, experience, and spiritual depth." -- Anne Carlson Kennedy, Christianity Today, December 13, 2017

"This is a book that will touch every reader, leading us to develop the eyes to perceive and ears to detect God’s presence in every moment of life. A mysticism of the ordinary is the purest expression of faith." -- Craig L. Nessan, Currents In Theology and Mission, Winter 2018
