 Our Description

The Lamb's Supper reveals a long-lost secret of the Church: the early Christian's key to understanding the mysteries of the Mass was the New Testament's Book of Revelation. With its bizarre imagery, its mystic visions of Heaven, and its end-of-time prophecies, Revelation mirrors the sacrifice and celebration of the Eucharist.

Beautifully written in clear, direct language, this new book by bestselling Catholic author Scott Hahn will help readers see the Mass with new eyes, pray the liturgy with a renewed heart, and enter into the Mass more fully, enthusiastically, intelligently, and powerfully than ever before.

Dr. Scott Hahn is currently Professor of Theology and Scripture at Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio. He is also the founder and Director of the Institute of Applied Biblical Studies, and serves as President for the Missionaries of Faith Foundation. He is married to Kimberly. They have six children.

This item received 5 stars overall. A great book to begin your journey as to a deeper understanding of the Mass.


The Lamb's Supper is an excellent primer on The Mass. Dr. Scott Hahn is able to take complex subjects, such as the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the Book of Revelation and explain their connection at the most basic level. This book would be excellent for any Catholic who wants to understand the biblical and historical context and meaning of the Mass. I suggest this book to any of my Catholic friends who are looking to being their exploration of what exactly it is that we as Catholics do each week when we attend Church for a Mass. Every Catholic should read this book at some point in their life, and they should have it on their shelf as an evangelization and "Journey Home" book for their fallen away Catholic friends.

This item received 5 stars overall. Great book about the Mass and to give to RCIA candidates

Today I'm reviewing a book that had a profound impact on my journey to Catholicism - The Lamb's Supper: The Mass as Heaven on Earth. Some of my regular readers might be thinking, "But you converted over 10 years ago, why review the book now?" Well, I first read this book as an ebook before ebooks took off. This was before the iPad or Kindle and when the format was a PDF tied to your computer. Unfortunately, I lost that computer and thus the book as well. Fortunately, Blogging for Books had one available copy left to review, and I knew it had to be mine! I also thought that it would be neat to re-read it (a practice I don't normally participate in) and see how the same words would speak to me ten years after my conversion.

The Lamb's Supper: The Mass as Heaven on Earth is broken into three parts - "The Gift of the Mass," &quo Full Review...
