Warren's writing is accessible for anyone and is certainly not written just for moms - it just happened to hit me in this season. Funny at just the right moments, Liturgy of the Ordinary provides plenty of food-for-thought even for the experienced theologian. (In fact, the foreword is written by Andy Crouch which tells you this book isn't fluff!) My copy is underlined and highlighted to return to again and again. I'll be buying copies for friends this Christmas.
As cheesy as this sounds, I downloaded this book because I felt like God was telling me to. Suddenly, everywhere I turned, one of my friends or another was either reading it or had just finished and was heavily recommending it. As soon as I started reading it, I understood why. I had to stop myself from highlighting the entire book, and during the first several chapters I just cried. I needed these words so much. Especially the waiting in traffic chapter. Going on 15 months of infertility, her words on waiting for God resonated deeply with me.
As someone who struggles with spiritual disciplines, this book taught me I can work in so many of them during my normal routine. Now when I wake, I try to pray and sit in quiet meditation instead of immediately reaching for the phone. When I shower, I remember my baptism and the grace God has extended to me. It's only been a few days, so I haven't got the ball rolling on making my bed yet, but there's hope for the future at very least.
Tish Harrison Warren is an amazing writer, and this much-needed book fills a void. I recommend to all Christian friends, and to all non-Christian friends who consider themselves spiritual or who are interested in learning more about practical faith.
This has been a big year, and in a world that has felt so overwhelming—and that has presented us with questions and challenges that seem even bigger than that—it's so refreshing to find a picture of Christian faith that resides not on the mountaintop but in routine simplicity and a focus on watching, paying attention, and listening closely for the voice of God. This is a wonderful book.
What Warren has written here is in the tradition of Brother Lawrence's practicing the presence of God, St. Ignatius' finding God in all things, and St. Thérèse of Lisieux' "Little Way." Just as St. Benedict sought to require of his monks "nothing harsh or burdensome," Warren's book takes for granted that most of us are not spiritual giants; we are simply ordinary Christians who are working out our lives in the grace of God.
Gracefully written and accessible to a wide readership, it is an excellent introduction to the sort of spiritual life that is aware that nothing in our lives is without spiritual significance and there is nothing we engage in that God is not interested in using for our transformation.
