Book Description

From the bestselling author of The Lamb's Supper and Signs of Life comes an illuminating work that unlocks the many mysteries of the Catholic sacrament of the Eucharist.

Long before the New Testament was a document, it was a sacrament. Jesus called the Eucharist by the name Christians subsequently gave to the latter books of the Holy Bible. It was the "New Covenant," the "New Testament," in his blood. Christians later extended the phrase to cover the books produced by the apostles and their companions; but they did so because these were the books that could be read at Mass.
 
This simple and demonstrable historical fact has enormous implications for the way we read the Bible. In Consuming the Word: The New Testament and the Eucharist in the Early Church, Dr. Scott Hahn undertakes an examination of some of Christianity's most basic terms to discover what they meant to the sacred authors, the apostolic preachers, and their first hearers. Moreover, at a time when the Church is embarking on a New Evangelization he draws lessons for Christians today to help solidify their understanding of the why it is Catholics do what Catholics do.
 
Anyone acquainted with the rich body of writing that flows so inspiringly from the hand and heart of Dr. Hahn knows that he brings profound personal insight to his demonstrated theological expertise,” writes Cardinal Donald Wuerl in the foreword to the book.  Consuming the Word continues in that illustrious tradition.  It brings us a powerful and welcome guide as we take our place in the great and challenging work in sharing the Good News.

I have many Scott Hahn titles and appreciate them a little more with each one I read. He never disappoints and I am so grateful for his insight. I just wish my children were young enough to go back to College!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant - and not just for Catholics 10 Jun. 2014
Format:Hardcover
A lot of non-Catholics believe in the Real Presence and in the Eucharist's centrality in Christian worship*; but this book, along with Dr Hahn's <i>The Lamb's Supper</i>, will deepen anyone's understanding and appreciation of Holy Communion.

*For example, see <i>The Lord's Supper: Eternal Word in Broken Bread</i> by Robert Letham
