Scott Hahn has inspired millions of readers with his clear, deeply felt examinations of the relevance of Catholic theology and worship to contemporary times. All of his books have topped Catholic bestseller lists; his first book, "The Lamb's Supper, has sold more than 185,000 copies since its publication in 1999. In LETTER AND SPIRIT, Hahn extends the message of "The Lamb's Supper, offering far-reaching and profound insights into what the Bible teaches us about living the spiritual life.

For both Christians and Jews, the texts of the Bible are not simply records of historical events. They are intended, through public recitations in churches and synagogues, to bring listeners and readers into the sweeping story of redemption as it unfolds in the scriptures. Focusing on the Catholic Mass, Hahn describes how God's Word is meant to open our eyes to the life-giving power of the sacraments, and how the liturgy brings about the "actualization" of the saving truths of Scripture.

LETTER AND SPIRIT will help Hahn's loyal, enthusiastic Catholic audience understand the Bible and Mass in a deeper way. It is also a stunningly original contribution to the field of academic biblical studies.
