"This remarkable book brings together several powerful spiritual realities - all of them important to the believing Christian, and all of them apparently so diverse as to superficially appear unrelated: the end of the world and the daily Mass; the Apocalypse and the Lord's Supper; the humdrum of daily life and the Parousia, the coming of the Lord." (from the forward by Fr. Benedict J. Groeschel C.F.R.).
In The Lamb's Supper, Scott Hahn explores an amazing interpretation of The Book of Revelation that has been almost forgotten over time. He reaches back to the second through sixth centuries to the teachings of the early Eastern Fathers of the church. In his study of their writings, Hahn shows us the link between the celebration of the Eucharist and the end of the world. He illustrates how the heavenly worship found in the Book of Revelation is really an account of the Marriage Feast of the Lamb - a celebration of the Holy Eucharist.
Beautifully written in clear, direct language, this 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.
"An extremely fascinating development of the relationship between the Book of Revelation and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Scott Hahn handles a very complex subject in a very clear, logical manner ... and above all it is highly readable and very much in tune with modern-day jargon and understanding... I have learned much in the reading."
-- Father Dominic Scotto, T.O.R.
