About-

Various Christian traditions mark their calendars to reflect the biblical and ecclesial narrative and enhance public worship. Such efforts safeguard against secularization’s encroachment in the church’s life. Setting the Spiritual Clock serves as a guide and traveling companion for the liturgical year, which circles the glorious Son as he breaks through the secular eclipse.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Paul Louis Metzger has once again demonstrated an amicable and coherent way that evangelical fervor can be married to Catholic timekeeping. Setting the Spiritual Clock is a handbook to a liturgical life receptive to profoundly ecumenical insights. Christian unity seems much more palpable in the light of its lucid but simple provocations.”

—Peter J. Casarella, Duke Divinity School



“A delightful walk through the entire Christian year. At once devotional and practical, this book is a useful guide for pastors, worship leaders, and faithful Christians of all traditions. Warmly recommended!”

—Timothy George, Beeson Divinity School of Samford University



“Paul Louis Metzger makes the theoretical case for the ecclesial year as a central element in spiritual formation and offers a series of meditations and practical resources for renewing the Christian narrative in community. May this book enrich churches in recovering the vital gift of the liturgical year!”

—Peter Robinson, Wycliffe College, University of Toronto



“This is a gem of a book. A gem because it is rare: part devotion, part reflective essay, a combination of deep biblical and theological wisdom, wise conversation partners, and cultural engagement. And also a gem because its content deserves to be mined and treasured as we seek to follow Jesus in this complex cultural and political moment. Constructively building on other recent efforts to retrieve the liturgical calendar as a part of the re-formation of our Christian imaginations, faithful engagement with this book will surely help its readers orient their lives around the Son in this secular, pluralistic age.”

—Kristen Deede Johnson, Western Theological Seminary



“We need to reset our clocks to Jesus’ time, and Paul Louis Metzger’s book helps us to do just that. Filled with wise meditations throughout the Christian year, this book is a sure guide for Christian pastors, churches, and families.”

—Joel Scandrett, Trinity School for Ministry



Setting the Spiritual Clock masterfully guides readers to discern the transformative presence of Christ’s Easter glory breaking through the ‘secular eclipse’ in the post-Christendom era. Metzger offers a timely response redeeming Christian narratives in a culturally meaningful way.”

—David Sang-Ehil Han, Pentecostal Theological Seminary
