The Biblical Roots of the Mass
In this profoundly insightful and highly readable book, you’ll discover that the story of the Mass extends far beyond the Last Supper and Christ’s Passion and Death, as Thomas Nash brilliantly refutes the common charge that the Mass is “unbiblical.” Indeed, it’s part of an unbroken story that begins in the Garden of Eden and continues today in your local parish. Nash’s meticulous, Scripture-packed analysis relies on hundreds of Bible passages to show that the story of the Mass is inextricably linked with the story of the Bible. The Biblical Roots of the Mass will challenge Protestants in their convictions and lead Catholics to a better understanding of the Mass.
Working systematically through Scripture, Nash offers an authoritative explanation of salvation history, showing how the Old Testament prefigures — and the New Testament wondrously records — Jesus’ one self-sacrifice of Calvary which is mysteriously made present at each and every Mass. Nash’s meticulous, Scripture-packed analysis relies on hundreds of Bible passages to demonstrate that the story of the Mass is inextricably linked with the story of the Bible.
The Biblical Roots of the Mass challenges Protestants to see the Bible as a truly Catholic story while leading Catholics to understand the Mass as indispensable in achieving the Church’s divinely-ordained mandate.
