About the Author

Martin Connell is assistant professor in the School of Theology of Saint John's University, Collegeville, Minnesota. He is the author of 7 previous books, including An Introduction to the Liturgical Year and Workbook for Lectors and Gospel Readers 2005 and 2006.


"The book is a valuable resource: it inspires, and captures the changing moods of the seasons from Advent to Candlemas, and proposes practical ways of celebrating these related times of the year. Connell is a foremost scholar of the history of the Christian year, and the serious student of liturgy will gain from his critique of the work of Thomas Talley."Theology, November 2008
"This book presents liturgical scholarship in an accessible style, but it is far from being anodyne. Connell's social critique, such as his acount of the consumer-driven conflation of the infant Christ and Santa Claus, is astringently written, and evenly balances the challenges as well as the possibilities for those who would promote the observance of the seasons of the Christian year." - Theology
"Martin Connell, a liturgical scholar trained at the University of Notre Dame and now a professor at St. John's University in Collegeville (Minn.), makes available the latest research on the liturgical year through these two volumes...When he deals specifically with church history...his solid scholarship comes through clearly and is of much value to all readers. While he has designed the order of the volumes to coincide with the liturgical year, he also advises readers that they might prefer to read the chapters in the order in which the liturgical year actually developed (e.g., Easter before Christmas)." -Eileen D. Crowley, Catholic Library World, December 2008
