What a Revelation!
on 28 November 2000
This is a great book for those who are familiar with the Mass, and those not-so familiar.
Scott Hahn gives a fasinating insight into the origins of the liturgy, which has helped me to appreciate the Mass and my contribution to it. Although he readily points out that this is not new - indeed the early Church Fathers taught this - he presents the subject in a manner which makes you ask the question: "This is simple, so why haven't I heard this from my priest?"
The Book of Revelation does appear to be full of weird and strange stuff that Joe Layman would consider to be futuristic, but now it makes more sense. Friends and family (Catholic and non-Catholic alike) have been surprised by what is presented in this book, but they see the connection. Some non-Catholic Christian friends of mine are now asking themselves if the Reformation threw the baby out with the bath water.
This is a darn good read, and provides a strong resource for Bible Study. But don't just copy it - question it, research it, and debate it!
This book also complements other material by Scott Hahn; A Father Who Keeps His Promises (book), and The Book of Revelation - Bible Study (tape series).
Go on ... BUY IT!
