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."

Where does The Lamb's Supper rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

As a book on religion, this is one of the best books that I have listened to. Many Catholics are unaware of the scriptural foundation of the Mass. This book highlights this direct connection and helps to understand why we do what we do. As a former Protestant Scott Hahn gives a much needed perspective - that of a sceptical opponent. This should inspire all Catholics to know more about their faith and appreciate the rich scriptural traditions of our Christian faith.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lamb's Supper?

A simple statement turned question. When on the cross Jesus says,

Have you listened to any of Scott Hahn’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have also listened to a short excerpt from this book called the Fourth Cup. It's only about an hour long and gets right to the point.

Any additional comments?

I encourage not only Catholics but Protestants also to listen. This deals with the major difference between our Christian beliefs - The Eucharist (Holy Communion). It's a shame that we share so many common beliefs and yet we feel so far apart. Perhaps more understanding on all of our part will help us come together. We all love Christ :)
