 Our Description

Mass Revision: How the Liturgy Is Changing and What It Means for You is a dynamic new book describing the transformation about to occur in parishes across America. The Mass as we’ve known it for the past 40 years is about to change, and it will never be the same again.
Mass Revision is the latest best-seller from award-winning author Jimmy Akin. As always, Jimmy goes straight to the heart of the issue and cuts through the distortions that have surrounded the liturgy. He quotes the Church’s own documents so you can see for yourself what the Church has to say and not be deceived by falsehood and spin.

In this highly readable, information-packed volume, Jimmy lays out the true facts about:
• The ways the Mass is changing—and the ways it is staying the same
• How the new, more accurate translation restores a sense of sacredness that has been missing for years
• The changes in the Church’s own laws about the liturgy
• The problems we will encounter when the Mass changes—and how to overcome them
• What forces have been trying to subvert the liturgy and undo the Holy See’s careful work

Mass Revision provides an overview of the Mass from beginning to end, showing you exactly how the Church says it is to be celebrated and exactly which parts are changing. Topics include the introductory rites, the Liturgy of the Word, the Liturgy of the Eucharist, who can and cannot receive Communion, the concluding rites, liturgical furnishings and vestments, and postures and actions during Mass—as well as the hot-button issue of liturgical abuses.
No other work comes close to delivering this amount of timely information in a concise, readable, and straightforward manner. Mass Revision: How the Liturgy Is Changing and What It Means for You is an indispensable resource. No one interested in the liturgy can afford to miss this powerful, must-read volume and the eye-opening information it contains.
