    This is the best book on worldview I have ever read Hands down I come from a protestant background but most protestants argue for worldview in gnostic categories Even the most creational of them merely reduce the Christian faith to the intellectual This is the oldest heresy the church faced gnosticism Fr Schmemann, on

    Simply put, this is one of the greatest books of any genre I have ever read I am not sure how even to begin describing this incredible book Ultimately it is about living all of life liturgically and understanding the world as sacrament We come to know the world through the lived liturgy of the Church In this book, Schmemann rej

    There are few books that I can point to as paradigm shifters Perhaps Ridderbos Paul, Van Til s Christian Apologetics, John Frame s Doctrine of God, and Mouw s He Shines In All That s Fair are the few that exploded my understanding of God s work in the world, both in terms of His work in creation and redemption Schmemann s For the Life of the World

    This is not as much a review of the book as it is my thoughts and what I gained from it This book expanded my understanding of the meaning of sacrament The western understanding has been poisoned by a dichotomy between symbol and that which is signified as well as by a removal of the sacrament itself from its proper liturgical context The symbol i.e Bread and Wine do not point to an invisible gra

    Among books that should be required reading for priests entering sacramental ministry, this short book by Fr Alexander Schmemann should be at the top of the list To read Schemann is to discover a true sacramental vision of the world and Life in Christ Seeing as Schmemann sees, one cannot but encounter the effects of secularism and harmful dualisms in one s own vision and thought In that sense, reading Schm
