#16 The Lamb’s Supper

For something completely different, I picked up Scott Hahn’s The Lamb’s Supper: The Mass as Heaven on Earth. Figured it was worth reading a popularized Roman Catholic take. While there are some good bits and he does make me think about the early fathers and their approach a bit, I found a lot of it unsatisfying. The stuff from Revelation (he tries to use the mass as the interpretive key) just seems to miss the point. To make it work he has to take an early date (less convincing, in my view) and I feel it’s odd to read about Revelation with no discussion of apocalyptic. I can’t believe that is how the first century readers would have read it. Well, I got out of it what I was looking for…so no complaints!
