It is a fascinating read and lays to rest many false notions in liturgical circles. For example, the issue taken with early Slavic usage in the liturgy by the Germans was not so much with the non-Latin words, but with the introduction of a new alphabet into the liturgies of the Church. This old line is so often heard from various sources about the matter, it is about time to see it put to rest. The style is delightful and holds the reader's attention with numerous examples drawn not just from the past but from the new English translation of the Ordinary Form which seems, thankfully, to reflect, to a larger extent than the previous translation, the sanity about language that Fr. Lang encapsulates and expounds so well in this book.
