In this exciting book Thomas Nash refutes the common charge that the Mass is “unbiblical” in a resoundingly biblical fashion. From the Garden of Eden to Christ's Ascension, the biblical roots of the Mass go much deeper than the Last Supper and Christ's Passion. Old Testament sacrifices like Abel’s, Abraham’s, and the Passover all prefigure and are fulfilled by Christ's Sacrifice, which is made present in the Sacrifice of the Mass. What began on the Cross culminated in everlasting glory when Jesus entered “once for all” into the heavenly holy of holies, as the Letter to the Hebrews provides.
In a time when the Catholic Church is under attack from within and without, Worthy is the Lamb reminds the faithful that the Mass is, as Vatican II affirms, “the source and summit of the whole Christian life.” This book will transform your understanding of and participation in the Mass.
