Before reading "The Lamb's Supper," I had not been a Scott Hahn fan. However, Dr. Hahn's book provides an incredible key to a deeper appreciation of the Mass and the Book of Revelation:
- "Of all things Catholic, there is nothing so familiar as the Mass....Yet most Catholics will go a lifetime without seeing beyond the surface of memorized prayers. Few will glimpse the powerful supernatural drama they enter into every Sunday. Pope John Paul II has called the Mass `heaven on earth,' explaining that `the liturgy we celebrate on earth is a mysterious participation in the heavenly liturgy'" (p. 3).
- "For most of the early Christians it was a given: the Book of Revelation was incomprehensible apart from the liturgy....As Jewish Christians, we would immediately recognize the Temple in Revelation's description of heaven....Revelation revealed the Temple - but to devout Jews and jewish converts to Christianity, it also revealed much more. For the temple and its trappings pointed to higher realities" (pp. 66 - 69).
This is a fabulous, little book!
