A Biblical Walk Through The Mass - A Review

A few months ago I was sent this book to review for The Catholic Company. I've been reading and re-reading it since.

Dr. Edward Sri has brought the Mass home to me. In an easy to read format, using references from Scripture and The Church Fathers, he has opened the door to the Mass in a new and enlightening way.

With the new Roman Missal heading our way this Advent, I wanted to try to understand how the changes would affect me and my family and our worship. This book has shed new light on how we pray the Mass. It is a prayer, the Greatest prayer, and for far too long I was just reciting the prayers without much thought. The words were coming out but my heart was not in it and, here's the thing, I didn't even know it!

Dr. Sri's book has helped me find the meaning in the prayer. I've discovered a richer, fuller participation in the Mass than I have ever had and I don't even have to leave my pew.

This book will open your eyes and your heart to the way you pray the Mass. Pick it up today at The Catholic Company.

Very cool! Chris just ordered a book on the Jewish roots of the Eucharist. I can't recall the exact title right now, but it should be an interesting read, too
