Reviews - What do our customers think?
Indeed, *the* reason  Apr 28, 2010
This collection of weighty essays on the Mass give ample reason to be Catholic. Indeed, it would seem *the* reason to look closely at the Catholic expression of Christian worship. Interesting too that so many of the authors are converts from other traditions, reminding us again how "cradle-Catholics" too often seem to have neglected such great treasures in their tradition.

A short review could, in no way, convey the depth and breadth of these essays. However, just to provide a quick overview, here is a sampling of what you will find. From Dr. Edward Sri we are given a solid linking of the Mass as it is revealed in scripture. This is not the kind of appeal many Christians of other traditions may be prepared for - but it is the traditional Catholic approach of conveying, "this is what the Church has always taught and scripture bears witness to that fact." Exceeding simple proof-texting, Dr. Sri gives us a depth and direction to scripture in the context of the Church's teaching.

Those familiar with Dr. Hahn's work will still be thrilled with the insights that can be gleaned when one sees how the Church has always viewed the Eucharist as Parousia. This is indeed one of the keys to the early church on the topic of the Eucharist as well. It is, as always from Dr. Hahn, a unique and deep study one could read over and over again.

Tim Gray provides my personal favorite in showing the link between the ancient Jewish Todah sacrifice. Jewish tradition indicated that only the Todah would remain for eternity. This perspective of the Mass gives us perhaps the most striking continuity to our Jewish roots. It is a fascinating study that gives much food for deep meditation and discussion. This essay alone is worth the price of the book but then there is so much more as well.

Another wonderful link of continuity with Judaism is found in the liturgical calendar's link to the Jewish feasts as described in Sean Innerst's essay. The topic may not excite a lot of readers but I found myself deeply moved as I read. You will not want to overlook this gem.

Jeff Cavins provides a wonderful introduction to the problem of suffering as expressed in the Mass. It is both emotionally stirring and intellectually satisfying.

The final essay from Kimberly Hahn is a comparison of the Eucharist to marriage. It is a fitting wrap-up to this collection and gives us a better sense of the great mystical bond we have with our bridegroom.

There are many other essays well worth greater study and I hate to have skipped over so many. But every essay you will find rewarding and thought-provoking stirring you up to love and good works.
Great condition!  Dec 10, 2009
I received my book, and am very excited to start reading this and delving more into the Catholic faith.
More great reasons to be Catholic  Oct 28, 2008
This book is filled with short essays (10-15 pages) written by top Catholic apologists on different aspects of the sacrifice of the mass. Some essays are more apologetical in nature; others are evangelistic or catechetic. All in all, this is a wonderful place to learn more about the mass.
Catholic for a Reason: Scripture and the Mystery  May 15, 2008
Book in Great condition (new), cheap. Shiped promptly. I will definitively buy again from this seller.
Much needed  Mar 19, 2007
Today the number of Catholics that do no go to mass, or do not have a clear idea why go to mass at all, is immense. Catholic for a reason is an excellent tool in helping those Catholics to come to know and love the Faith they received at baptism. Great book!
