Best-selling author Scott Hahn sheds new light on the Mass, offering readers a deeper appreciation of the most familiar of Catholic rituals.
Of all things Catholic, there is nothing that is so familiar as the Mass. With its unchanging prayers, the Mass fits Catholics like their favorite clothes. Yet most Catholics sitting in the pews on Sundays fail to see the powerful supernatural drama that enfolds them. Pope John Paul II described the Mass as "heaven on earth", explaining that what "we celebrate on earth is a mysterious participation in the heavenly liturgy."The Lamb's Supper reveals a long-lost secret of the Church: The early Christians' key to understanding the mysteries of the Mass was the New Testament Book of Revelation. With its bizarre imagery, its mystic visions of heaven, and its end-of-time prophecies, Revelation mirrors the sacrifice and celebration of the Eucharist.Beautifully written, in clear direct language, best-selling Catholic author Scott Hahn's new book will help readers see the Mass with new eyes, pray the liturgy with a renewed heart, and enter into the Mass more fully, enthusiastically, intelligently, and powerfully than ever before.

"Hahn's enthusiasm...is considerable - and infectious. Furthermore, he delivers his arguments with great levity (demonstrated in chapter titles such as "Oath Meal"), which makes The Lamb's Supper quite a tasty read." (Amazon.com review)
Dr. Hahn has written another classic. This time he ties together something Catholics know very well (the Mass) and something most don't know very well (Book of Revelation). Explaining how the Apocalypse is really a book about the Mass is both surprising and fulfilling. You can't go wrong with this download!
I totally loved this book. I've never thought of Revelation in this way. and I've never thought of the Mass in this way. it tied them both together for me
I thought this was a great book. The book of Revelations always seemed like scary reading to me. Scott Hahn did a fabulous job in unlocking it's mystery. I can't wait to starting reading with his understanding in my heart and mind I read it.
I enjoy Scandinavian mystery and crime authors like Asa Larsson, Helene Tursten, Jo Nesbo, Karin Fossum and Amaaldur Indridason just to name a few.
If you are a Catholic, you'll get what Hahn is saying. If you are not Catholic, this could be a step toward a conversion.
Superb and a must read for anyone who wants to understand what is really happening in the Catholic mass, and how the mass can be found in the Bible. It is eye opening and will lead those who love the Lord to a deeper participation in the holy mass.
