Essential book for any person who is serious about taking the steps to live according to the scripture. Scott keeps it simple yet carries one to the real meaning of the Mass and its connection to revelation. I discovered a new meaning to the sacement as Scott opens up a new path to the Kingdom and changed the way to new relationship with God , could not leave the book down ,he is a riveting writer with a special message . Paraic .

BEST BOOK ON MASS!
This is the best book I have read about Mass, it is simple non-theological stuff and a great boost for the catholic that tends to fall asleep during mass. It has deepened the meaning of going to church on Sundays and receiving the Holy Eucharist. After reading this book you wont mind going to mass and having to put up with a ''boring sermon'' you will find a whole new meaning to attend mass.
Publishers Weekly, 1999-09-27 As with his earlier Rome Sweet Home, Hahn's The Lamb's Supper seeks to bring scriptural exegesis and Roman Catholic ritual tradition into fruitful dialogue. The central thrust of this piece is that Catholic liturgy offers the best interpretive paradigm for studying the Book of Revelation. Hahn divides his subject matter into three main sections, considering in turn Scripture in the canon of the Mass, various interpretive approaches to the Book of Revelation and the mutual illumination of the Catholic Mass and John's Apocalypse. Apart from vapid section titles (e.g., "Guided Missal," "Resisting a Rest" and "The Need to Heed the Creed"), which detract from the serious themes presented, Hahn treats the material quite competently, and he is candid in his enthusiasm for both biblical liturgics and liturgical exegesis. Hahn's work is a fine introduction to eucharistic theology for the Catholic layperson, offering a crash course in the history of sacrificial worship in ancient Israel. The book has an ecumenical appeal, especially for Lutherans and Anglicans desiring to better acquaint themselves with Catholic ritual and the New Testament. The only consideration noticeably absent from Hahn's liturgical review of Revelation is whether the doxological splendors of the Mass are marred or made manifest in the hastily prepared English translations of the Latin Rite issued in the wake of the Second Vatican Council.
