Letter and Spirit is a stunningly original contribution to the field of biblical studies and will help Hahn's many loyal and enthusiastic readers (and listeners) understand the relationship between the Bible and the Mass in a deeper way.

This is a very good read. Hahn's work lends itself to an audio format because he is so thorough in emphasizing his themes. Hahn demonstrates the connection between liturgy and the bible so strongly that the book is refreshing for those catholics who sit through Mass each week; perhaps losing sight of the splendor of the Mass. Hahn reminds us of the power of the Word in Liturgy and how it has a supernatural effect. Strongly recommend it for catholics or for those thinking of becoming catholic or finally for those who are interested in understanding catholic worship.

This could easily be a 5 star download
The only reason I have given this a 4 star, instead of a 5 star rating is that it's deeply technical. The only other Hahn book I have read was "The Lamb's Supper" and I found that book to be attainable for most anyone who had an interest in and grasp on scripture and a familiarity with the Mass. This book digs deeper and deals mostly in typologies. It is thick in quotations from other scholarly works and the Church Fathers, and is not an easy listen for the casual listener. If you are ready to kick up the level of your study, then you've found a book you can really dive deep into. If you are a casual listener looking for an enlightening but easy to stomach book then I'd hold off on this one for now.
