- I appreciated the places and the personal stories the author gives to the places and the objects he visits and highlights on his journeys, but I think his comments on many things are uninformed and uncharitable. It reminded me of C.S. Lewis' comment about his first book, The Pilgrim's Regress, on the occasion of the 3rd edition being published: "ON RE-READING THIS BOOK ten years after I wrote it, I find its chief faults to be those two which I myself least easily forgive in the books of other men: needless obscurity, and an uncharitable temper." (HarperOne, 2014, 231.) As Alan Jacobs' notes, "much of The Pilgrim's Regress is devoted to rejecting ideas Lewis really doesn't know much about—or elevating the importance of ones he does know" (The Narnian, 159). This evaluation could be applied to much of what I heard in this series.

- I have the same question. Given that the Office is available online either free or at nominal cost, one wonders why one would purchase this, especially as we await the new version.
- It looks likely that it will be released with Verbum 9, based on this text appearing in the bookstore search:
