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’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.

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 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.

It really has changed the way people think about the Mass. I hear all of the time, 'I never knew that!', or 'This (The Creed, The Lord Have Mercy, etc.) means so much more to me now!' » Read More— Loree Heinkel

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 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
