Biblical Walk Through The Mass Endorsements

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.

A Biblical Walk Through the Mass study really helps people understand why they're at Mass, and what they're doing at Mass at every step of the way.

As a DRE, I can see the tremendous value A Biblical Walk Through the Mass study has brought to our Parish and will bring to other Parishes around the country. It’s such a blessing for parishioners to be able to come and understand what’s happening in the Mass at a much deeper level. You learn that with this study.

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.

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.

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.

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!'

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.

I have found this book to be very enjoyable reading, a fluid style, easy to understand, that makes it easy for anyone to deepen their appreciation for what we are praying and doing during the Mass.

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.'

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.

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!!

This book is a clear and concise resource for every Catholic who wants to know the background of the Mass. The Biblical roots and explanations provided by Dr. Sri will encourage every man and woman of faith concerning the importance of our liturgies.

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.

A Biblical Walk through the Mass holds a great deal of spiritual promise for both priests and faithful as we continue to pray the new words of the Mass. A Biblical Walk gives these new words meaning beyond the ordinary way we might hear them. In fact, the meaning offered opens the words to the deeper foundations and insights the words carry. This will help Catholics pray the Mass with greater faith and to live from the Mass a fuller Christian Life.
