Fall Adult Book Study! 

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist 

by Dr. Brant Pitre

We are excited to offer a Fall Adult Book Study - Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist, by Dr. Brant Pitre.

There are several different types of sessions to choose from:

  • Mixed Group

  • Women Only

Sign up for ONE day/time slot that best suits your weekly schedule - this study will last 9 weeks (dates listed in the Sign-Up options are the beginning date/time of each session and will continue for a total of 9 weeks - BEGINNING the week of September 15 and ending the week of November 10th).

It would be ideal if you could attend the same session every week.  We've tried to offer a variety of day/time slots to fit your busy schedules!  Each session will have a facilitator(s) that will assist the group in staying within the allotted time parameters and serve as the contact person for the group.

Reviews of Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist 

by Dr. Brant Pitre

"Dr. Brant Pitre uses the Hebrew Scriptures and the 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." 

Lighthouse Catholic Media

"Like a Scott Hahn book, Dr. Brant Pitre uses the Old Testament to explain the Catholic faith in ways that leave you screaming, "Why have I never heard this before?".  Dr. Pitre answers the question "Why did early Christians so easily believe in the Real Presence?" in a very convincing and unique way."  Edmund Mitchell, Director of Evangelization and Catechesis, St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, Grapevine, Texas

"This book is well documented with references from sacred scripture, Jewish writings and commentaries, and from thoughtful Christian scripture scholars, both Protestant and Catholic.  Many of those with whom I have shared and studied this book have found it provides a new and profound appreciation for our Jewish heritage and the Eucharist."
