Constance Cherry looks at a helpful guide to the development of the Christian year.

In addition to the standard review of Bradshaw and Johnson's book, we also asked Dr. Cherry to share some personal reflections on her experience getting to know and appreciate the Christian calendar. We're pleased to present the resulting two-part review, and we know you'll enjoy both the review and the personal narrative.
