Review of “Praying in God’s Theater” at Ponderings on a Faith Journey

Praying in God’s Theater can appeal to a number of audiences.  For one, I think that his reading of Revelation, while not unique, provides us with a different way into the text.  It will appeal – or could appeal – to persons with strong interests in liturgy – especially Eucharistic liturgy.  The book will help flesh out what in most Protestant contexts is rather spare of meaning and practice…For those who might be too earthly minded to be of any heavenly good, Joel invites us to open our eyes to the mysteries of God.  For those seeking an aid to spiritual practices, again the book can be of help.
