Dr. Brant Pitre uses the Hebrew Scriptures and Jewish tradition to frame the actions of Jesus at the Last Supper, and to provide a fresh look at the heart of Catholic practice — the Eucharist. By taking us back to the Jewish roots of our faith, Dr. Pitre gives us a powerful lens through which to see anew the bread of the presence, the manna, the Last Supper, and ultimately the meaning of the Eucharist.
Dr. Brant Pitre
Very insightful in connecting scriptures on the Eucharist from the OT. Dr Pitre is comprehensive and prayerful in his approach and uses good humor at times. He helps us understand the centrality of the Eucharis in our lives. It is a real plus that he makes notes on the CD available.
As someone trying to learn more about my faith, I enjoyed the clear, simple presentation that I was able to follow easily. I enjoyed it so much I ordered the book. Thank you.
The talk was truly inspiring. It brought together the knowledge I have of scripture and joined all the dots together to give the full picture of the face of God in the presence of the Eucharist. Amazing teaching. Highly recommended.
