It might be rough going if you are not familiar with critiques of Enlightenment dualism (for example found in Descartes and his heirs which have more or less shaped the whole western epistemological worldview) by Polanyi etc . . . but Dru Johnson is such a good writer that in reading his work you will actually get what you need to understand what he is saying and why he is saying it. This book will not only forever illumine ones understanding of the foundational character of ritual in the Old Testament for instruction and learning what YHWH wants Israel to know, it will help you understand our present culture and how the 'rituals' of our culture are subtly forming our minds in ways that are antithetical to the Gospel and that eclipse, by undergoing of worldly ritual, the very knowledge of God that Apostolic tradition and practices/ritual was passed on in order to give us.
I have to say that there are few books that have fundamentally shifted the very ground of my understanding of reality and how to learn and participate in it like this one. Thomas Torrance's The Trinitarian Faith, Alexander Schmemann's For the Life of the World and David Fagerberg's Consecrating the World have been seminal writings in helping me understand the riches and beauty of the Faith once for all delivered to the Saints. This book will be added to the shelf. I cannot recommend it more highly.
