Quotes & Awards

  • “With a carefulness and clarity familiar to readers of his Lamb’s Supper will recognize, Hahn describes the long-standing connection between Scriptural texts and ritual public worship in Judaism and the early Christian church.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “A thoughtful investigation into the relationship between the biblical text and its appropriation in Catholic liturgy…Informative and finely written.”

    Library Journal

  • “This is a most important book and needs to be very carefully read and studied. Every devout Catholic should be spiritually fed by scripture and liturgy. Obviously these two are meant to go together. In ways that you probably have never thought of, Scott Hahn brings the two together and relates them in a most integrated way. This book could be a new vista in your own spiritual life.”

    Fr. Benedict Groeschel, CFR, author of In the Presence of the Lord

  • “An appealingly fresh retrieval of the art of reading and living scripture through the lens of liturgy and worship. Paraphrasing St. Francis de Sales, Hahn offers us the Bible, not so much as read, but as sung. Scholars will find biblical and theological acuteness; students and general readers, excellent scholarship expressed in friendly ways. Highly recommended.”

    Dr. William Thompson-Uberuaga, professor of theology, Duquesne University, and past president of the Catholic Theological Society of America

    " Good work showing how Scripture was created for use in the liturgy, and being immersed in both is vital. "

    " This was a short book, and I would hope in future editions of "The Lamb's Supper" it could just be added in the back of the book. However, it is a great resource for anyone studying "The Lamb's Supper" either individually or as a group. "
