Since the time of Martin Luther, many have claimed that the Catholic Mass is an unbiblical practice, that it repudiates the once-for-all sacrifice of Christ on the cross of Calvary as expressed in the book of Hebrews. Still others have denied that Christ is truly present in the Eucharist. Do these criticisms have any validity? A thorough investigation of Scripture and history reveals that the answer is a resounding NO. As never before, the Catholic Church has been called upon to be the defender of Scripture and preserver of truth in modern times. Not by Bread Alone will set the biblical and historical record straight. But more importantly, as you learn the real truth about the Catholic Mass, this book will offer you the means to come to one of the deepest relationships with God you have ever experienced.
"Robert Sungenis has prepared a wonderful defense and explanation of the Holy Eucharist based on Sacred Scripture and Catholic theology. This is a solid Catholic doctrine regarding the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. It is a fine new look at traditional Catholic Eucharistic theology geared to the eager and fervent Catholic priest and lay person."
– Most Reverend Fabian W. Bruskewitz, Bishop of Lincoln, Nebraska
"Robert Sungenis' work – all of it – fills the word "exhaustive" with the fresh, and even exhilarating, significance. As with his Not by Faith Alone, one feels that if readers would read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest, this volume on the Eucharist, the questions would be answered. If this book were a hotel, it would get five stars."
– Thomas Howard, Ph. D., Author: Evangelical is Not Enough
"Careful and complete! Robert Sungenis' examination of the Catholic teaching on the Mass is a careful, step by theological step understanding of a key doctrine. He gives the reader the Scripture passages and exegesis, the Patristic and the Conciliar documentation. This is especially useful as Eucharistic adoration increases dramatically worldwide and seeks deeper understanding of the Mass."
– Reverend Mitchell Pacwa, S.J., Ph. D., Author: Catholics and the New Age
