    Christians today have lots of different opinions about what "worship" should look like. Some think it should be all preaching, others think it should be 'entertaining', still others think it's all about the music. But what does the Bible say about worship? And why do Catholics do what they do at Mass? Why all the standing, sitting, kneeling, and repetition? Where does it all come from?

    In this important series, Dr. Brant Pitre takes you on a scriptural tour of topics such as:

    The Shape of Worship: Who determines how we worship? God or us? 
    The Meaning of Sacrifice: Why did God demand animal sacrifice in the Old Testament? What was the meaning of blood sacrifice? Does it play any role in Christian worship today? 
    The Tabernacle of Moses:  What did worship look like in the Old Testament? How does it parallel the Mass today?
    The Book of Revelation:  What does worship look like in Heaven? How does Revelation reveal the Mass?
    The Jewish Passover: What was Passover worship like at the time of Jesus? Why was it so important, and how does it parallel Catholic worship today?
    The Last Supper and the Death of Christ: Why did Jesus choose to die during the Passover? How did his death fulfill the Jewish sacrifices in the Temple?
    The Biblical Roots of the Mass: How does the Bible unlock the mysteries behind the words and actions in the Mass?

    Many Catholics know what to do at Mass, but not why we do it. And many non-Catholics are confused by the rituals and words of the Mass. Some even think that most of the Mass is just 'made up'--a tradition of men. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you've ever wondered about whether or not the Mass is biblical, then look no further: Why We Worship is the perfect resource for parishes, RCIA programs, Bible studies--for anyone who wants to understand the Bible really says about the mystery and meaning of worship.

The mass is glorious

The mass is THE most under-appreciated thing on earth. Listen to this talk so that you may understand a great gift from God. You will never be bored at mass again.

I have not received this order yet.
Can you please look into the status of this?

Hi Michael. USPS is showing an expected delivery date of Dec 22nd. It left San Francisco on the 12th after being shipped on the 8th. It is that time of years where the USPS is experiencing more delays than usual. If I can help any further just let me know.

Why We Worship

I whole-heartedly recommend the "Why We Worship" series to any Lay Ministry group or Catholic parishioners for Bible Study. It breaks many of our practices at mass into 6 easy to understand and digest sessions. The lecture format with an accompanying outline is ideal. I learned so much about the rich tradition and history of the mass in a way that makes it easier to explain to others. I have recommended this series to other people, and I am encouraged to utilize other series produced by Dr. Pitre.

Excellent Resource

Great study on the Mass as Biblical worship. If you’ve ever wondered why the Mass is structured the way it is, this is the Bible study for you. Brant Pitre is a dynamic and engaging speaker, and I highly recommend anything from him.

Excellent Explanation of the Mass as Biblical Worship

I can't tell you how many times I have used what I learned in this series when talking to both Catholics and Protestants. It is very relevant for a time when even Catholics are confused about the meaning and significance of the Mass.

Loved every second of listening to all my CDs. Thank you!

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist

This is a wonderful book that gave me a deeper insight of the Eucharist!

Making Sense of Mary

Gives you a wonderful insight about Mary!

But Did It Really Happen? The Historical Reliability of the Bible

This is a good foundation for apologetics to answer the skeptical claims when it comes to the historical reliability of the Bible.

Phenomenal!!

As always, Dr. Pitre teaches in a well thought out and structured talk that keeps my attention from the start to the finish. I have learned so much from Dr. Pitre's many books and videos. The Origin of the Bible is the best video that I have watched on the subject.
