This book is such a treasure! It is exactly what I've been looking for, a readable book with history of the Mass. Plus, it incorporates the new English translation! Dr. Sri has such insight, and uses great biblical references (hence the name). I would recommend this to any Catholic, any non-catholic Christian, any historian, anyone with Jewish background, anyone! Very readable, very very good. My church offered a study with this book, workbook and "cheat sheet" for the lay person on the changes to the Mass this Advent 2011. It was a wonderful priceless study, and I hope it is being taken advantage of at your church!! » Read More— C Yarrington
Dr. Sri successfully provides a nice biblical overview of the Mass and its parts while informing us about the coming changes to the liturgy. I recommend this book to anyone wanting to prepare for these changes and understand the liturgy from a biblical perspective - because in all our standing and kneeling, silent attentiveness and responses: there really is 'something deeper going on there.' » Read More— Dr. Anthony Lilles

A Biblical Walk Through the Mass makes our participation come alive as we realize we are part of something that has been being prepared since the foundation of the world. If you purchase just one book on the Mass this year, I would recommend Sri’s — and I’d also recommend it as a gift to any former Catholics you know who are now evangelical Protestants. » Read More— Eric Sammons
Sri explains the Biblical beauty behind everything we say and do during the Mass...helped me see Mass as a journey from the Old Testament practices and prophecies to their New Testament fulfillment. » Read More— Kristan Doerfler
A Biblical Walk through the Mass taught me more in its 150 pages than I learned about the Mass in my 17 years of formal Catholic schooling. Dr. Sri proves that the Catholic Mass is tied to tradition and scripture and that every piece has a reason ... a past ... a link to bringing the participants into the Presence. » Read More— Mary G.

Edward Sri has written a seminal work that will deepen our way of praying the Mass. He skillfully draws out the unity of liturgical prayer with Holy Scripture; and I hope that many Catholics, especially at this time of transition to a new English translation of the Mass texts, will find inspiration in it. » Read More— Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I.

A Biblical Walk Through the Mass: I thought I’d have to endure this book, and I started it because I’m fascinated with the upcoming changes in the Roman missal. Having heard the author interviewed, I had hopes, but nothing prepared me for the passion and beauty of this book. Sri writes with a tenderness about the Mass and reminded me of what I so love about the Eucharist. Behind the facts contained in this book is the deep water of true love for Jesus. Highly recommended. » Read More— Sarah Reinhard
Dr. Sri’s book is the explanation of the Scriptural basis of the Mass. In that sense, it is not only timely but timeless. I wish that this book had been available when I was in the seminary 30 years ago. It is clear and concise. » Read More— Fr. James Kubicki, S.J.

A Biblical Walk Through the Mass: This book truly brings out the fullness of the Mass and the richness of the symbolism in it. The Biblical evidence for each part of the Mass is explained well and the chapters are easy to digest. There's not a lot of philosophy/theology here, just a practical analysis of what happens at each part of the Mass. I highly recommend this to every practicing Catholic. Attending Mass on Sunday is one thing, experiencing it in the light of this work is another. It has brought personal focus for me and now I can experience the Mass in a whole new way. » Read More— Albert J. Lemieux, III
