With the popularity, I was surprised by its lack of depth. Would not recommend to a friend.

New perspective
This was a fantastic book! Tish's writing is warm, intelligent, and poignant. I was invited to see everyday annoyances in light of eternity - and I'm grateful for that. I've already recommended it to a few friends.

Ex Anglican who missed out
Speaking as someone who attended nominally the church of Ireland (Anglican) most of my life I fled it as soon as I was born again. This was mainly because of the (mainly political) unbiblical teaching of the church but also because the liturgical aspect just made no sense to me. It was just something you did pointlessly which made me feel distant from God. Now I feel I have missed out something, I have truly been inspired by this book! I don’t espouse many of the confusing practices of the author in the book which seem more lead by culture than the bible, but I can say this woman has shown me how to draw closer to God in a whole new way that I have already started. I feel sorry for adding some negativity to this review but am just warning others in my position that if you pick up this book you will be inspired but also annoyed sometimes lol
