I’ll keep it short. This is one of the Best books that I have ever read on the Eucharist. Wow! Brant Pitre does such a great job of weaving the Scriptures, History and Tradition together that after reading the book you get such a great appreciation for the Eucharist. He spends a good amount of time in the Old Testament/Covenant and that I would say was the most eye opening portion of the book I encountered. His insights on the Passover, the sacrifice of the lamb, and on the Mana are exceptional. I also liked how he treated the development of the Passover at the time of Jesus and how He would celebrate the Passover; drawing the parallel to the Mass and its’ development and how we celebrate it today. It is a scholarly work, well-researched, but written in such a way that he draws you into the story. Brant wrote the book in such a way that if flows nicely making the book feel as if it is a light, short read - I read it in about two days and I’m sure I’ll read it again. Not a “school text-book” and I guarantee if you buy this book you will highly enjoy it. God Bless!

Do you realy want to know what the Euchaist realy means to those of us that believe in the 'True Presense?" This is the book for you. Very well documented and scholarly work. Takes you through Scriptures, history, and traditions. Was glad to see that he didn't lump the Lutherans into the Pretestant camp. We do believe in the true presense.

Fascinating weaving of Jewish traditions and the Jesus Movement that has evolved into the Eucharist celebrated today. This gives important background of the Jewish laws and how Jesus' words and actions impacted the early Jewish coverts and how we can find new personal meaning in the Eucharist.

If you love the Mass, you will love this book! If you don't know about the Mass, you will learn why, where, and how it all started. I highly recommend it.

The title says it all.... A link between the Sacrifice of the Catholic Mass and what was believed and prayed in Christ's time at the Last Supper. As a cradle catholic I never saw the "link" under now. A must read book.

You will never attend Mass the same way again. You will have a new zealousness for the Faith.
