Study group

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q:  Would you have a recommendation for a book, suitable for small group study, that identifies and explains the scriptural and/or historic source for phrases and components of the Mass? Something like viewing the Mass through a Bible Study lens? Most people are familiar with the Last Supper story and imagery, but “Melchizedek,” not so much. Or, maybe the direction to go would be a good solid survey of the Mass that we could supplement with an article or two? Thank you.


A:  Two of my books give biblical background to the parts of the Mass: At the Supper of the Lamb  and Pastoral Companion to the Roman Missal. Each book is about much more than the biblical quotes, but they’re in there. The first is set up with questions for a study group. The second would have a group devise their own.
