Ground Breaking Research,
This review is from: Shape of the Liturgy (Black's New Testament Commentaries) (Hardcover)
To my way of thinking this book ought never to be out of print and should always be available simply because it represents a point of departure for all liturgical studies done since 1945. Though some of Dix's material is now somewhat dated and scholarship has moved on, there is something quite compelling about this narrative and it can still be read with profit and edification. I have recently purchased one of these because I was fed up with always having to borrow it from the library and it has a treasured place on my book shelf along with the more recent liturgical studies of people like Frank Senn and Robert E. Webber. This is definitely money well spent.

I too have read Dix's book and endorse all of the above comments. Dix's work is a classic of its kind. Many of his conclusions still stand today.
