+ Metropolitan IAKOVOS of Chicago Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America
"This is a book, which will not be placed on a bookshelf to collect dust; it will be an electrifying charge to those who pick it up ... A worthy contribution to Orthodox America in this 21st century, written for our time, for our needs, and for the good pasturing of the flock ... The Heavenly Banquet will forever banish that unfortunate utterance that, 'I get nothing out of the Liturgy!'"
+ NATHANIEL, Archbishop of Detroit (OCA), from his Foreword to The Heavenly Banquet
