The Biblical Roots of the Mass

$19.95

About this item

In this profoundly insightful and highly readable book, Thomas Nash brilliantly refutes the common charge that the Mass is “unbiblical.” As you’ll discover, the story of the Mass goes deeper than the Last Supper and Christ’s Passion and Death. Indeed, it’s part of an unbroken story that begins in the Garden of Eden and continues today in your local parish.

Working systematically through Scripture, Nash offers an authoritative explanation of salvation history, showing how the Old Testament prefigures — and the New Testament wondrously records — Jesus’ one self-sacrifice of Calvary which is mysteriously made present at each and every Mass. Nash’s meticulous, Scripture-packed analysis relies on hundreds of Bible passages to show that the story of the Mass is inextricably linked with the story of the Bible.

The Biblical Roots of the Mass challenges Protestants to see the Bible as a truly Catholic story while leading Catholics to understand the Mass as indispensable to achieving the Church’s divinely ordained mandate.

"Nash has done us all a great service by pulling back the curtain and blowing away the mist, giving us a glimpse back in time and forward through eternity."

Great stuff. The association with the OT is so critical to a good understanding of the Mass. Sometimes we think that the Mass was something that the early church thought up without any background. Spiritually we all are Jews.

Very informative on how the Old Testament has the formation of our prayers use in the Mass, that were mentioned to us from prophets.

Study of this book has become one of the pillars of our Catholic adult faith formation groups in Central Arkansas. It is well-researched, well-written, and has proven invaluable in our renewed understanding of the Mass and its relationship to -- indeed, fulfillment of -- the covenants and prophesies of the Old Testament books of Holy Scripture.
