The initial material deals primarily with the understanding of the relationships between Scripture, Tradition and the Church. I was especially drawn to Chapter III of this book entitled a Biblical Theology of the Mass. The chapter looks, in part, at the Jewish roots of the Liturgy.

The initial material deals primarily with the understanding of the relationships between Scripture, Tradition and the Church. The middle, and primary, material deals with the Mass - it's Scriptural and Judaic use of time, candles, incense, etc. as well as the Biblical basis of the Mass. The segment on the Mass texts which cross-references them to the Catechism of the Catholic Church and Scripture is in itself worth the cost of the book.

Stravinskas walks us through the entire liturgy, providing the scriptural . The Changing World of Mormonism is perhaps the best book around.

This should be of immense help for two audiences. Catholics, he points out, hear more of the Bible at Mass than Protestants do in their worship services. In addition, his stress on the Christ-centered character of Catholic worship, the once-for-all sacrifice of Calvary, and grace as God’s completely free and unmerited favor toward us (p. 31) will go far in building a bridge of understanding to our separated brothers and sisters.

Peter M. Stravinskas1. Special emphasis is given to the scriptural basis for Catholic doctrines and beliefs. Main topics include the Catholic understanding of the Bible, God's Word and its purpose in the Church, a biblical theology of the Mass, the place of the Bible in the Sacred Liturgy, and a question-and-answer section that deals with pertinent and popular inquiries made by Catholics and non-Catholics alike. This work should be heartily welcomed by both clergy and laity, for Father Stravinskas sheds new light on Catholic Bible study by writing with candor, clarity and scriptural backing.

Mass is the main eucharistic liturgical service in many forms of Western Christianity. The term Mass is commonly used in the Roman Catholic and Lutheran Churches, as well as in Anglican, Methodist, Western Rite Orthodox, and Old Catholic churches. Other Christian denominations may employ terms such as Divine Service or worship service (and often just "service"), rather than the word Mass.

In his The Catholic Church and the Bible, Fr. Stravinskas devotes one chapter to the Biblical texts of the Mass. This volume is complementary, providing the Biblical theologicial foundations of the Mass. The books is divided into four chapters - introductory rites, Liturgy of the Word, Eucharistic Prayer,and Communion/concluding rites. Each chapter contains a clear and concise discussion of the relevant Scriptural basis for the liturgy (acts, words and environment), 7 Scriptural meditations on the liturgy and finally questions for group discussion.
While the book serves it purpose well, again unnecessary polemics weaken the text. Inveighing against the English translation rather than simply stating the original Latin quickly becomes tiresome. Confusion of grammatical gender and biological gender in the discussion of inclusive language, weakens Fr. Stravinskas' argument by calling into question his clarity of thought. The meditations built around polemics are not well suited for a group - they encourage argument rather than sharing.
In some areas, the issues raised tangentially date the volume. In a few places, the new General Instructions of the Roman Missal and modifications from the National Conference of Catholic Bishops have superceded the author's comments. Finally, the appendix on the use of Latin would fit more closely into the contemporary climate if it acknowledged the Eastern rites of the Catholic Church.
Still, I have no suggestions for books more clearly written as introductory books for the general population (high school and above) than the pair of books by Fr. Stravinskas. I say pair because the combination of text (The Catholic Church and the Bible) and theology (The Bible and the Mass) is better than either standing on its own.
