David deSilva on the Sacramental Life
One book on my ETS/SBL hit list is David deSilva's Sacramental Life: Spiritual Formation Through the Book of Common Prayer which is searchable at Amazon.com but as of yet unreleased. In the introduction, deSilva writes: "I am a person of faith today precisely because the liturgies of the Book of Common Prayer gave me a language and a context for encountering God in my youth that continues to be the essential vehicles for my own spiritual formation". As I've said before, I've learned to love and value the BCP, and it is very much part of my own devotional life now. Sounds like a good read!
