Scott Hahn has another winner on his hands. This is an excellent read and a quick one. As Scott points out the Word is present in both the written and the consumed proclamation. From the Old Testament breath of life written about and present in the spirit of man's existence to the New Testament Word spoken and in the consumed flesh of Jesus we find, in Dr. Hahn's presentation, the truth of God's scriptural witness. THis book is a must read for Catholics and Christians who desire to know the truth of God's scriptures and for proclaimers of God's Holy WORD.

Well Scott Hahn has done it again. Consuming the written Word means consuming the Word made flesh who dwelt amongst us. The truth comes by hearing. The proclamation of the gospel at the Mass was where people heard the Word and consumed the Word. Hahn point out that the very words 'New Testament' - kaine diatheke - could better be translated as permanent covenant. And when do we first hear of Jesus using the words 'he kaine diatheke"'? In 1st Cor when St Paul explains how Jesus said of the bread he was sharing 'This is the cup of the new covenant'. Hahn argues that "What the first Christians knew as the 'New Testament' was not a book, but the Eucharist...The New Testament was a sacrament at least a generation before it was a document". This is a great book for both Catholics and non Catholics.
