I received this as a free Good Reads book. I signed up for it because having been raised in a very conservative Protestant church I knew little about Catholic doctrine. As that three of my favorite religion authors are Catholic monks, I wanted to know more about being Catholic and especially the Mass. This book fit the bill.

I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway.

This book of essays does a great job of showing how the parts of Mass are rooted in scripture. Some of the essays look at specific parts of the Mass, while others address what the Mass means to us as The Body of Christ.

As a Catholic, I found this book informative and eye opening.

This book gives you insight into why we do certain things during the mass. As a "cradle" catholic you tend to learn repsonses and actions from a young age but not always the explanation of the purpose behind them. This book gives insight as to why the mass is set up as it is.

Scott Hahn writes a beautiful book that helps Catholics understand what we say and what we do in the Mass. I found it enlightening to more fully understand the symbols and meanings of the Mass. A good read for anyone wanting a deeper understanding of the Mass. Thanks to Goodreads for my free copy.

Great book, I learned more of about the mass and how it keeps some of the Jewish traditions going and how scripture is a vital part of everyday living.
