    What are some good resources on learning about the Scriptural roots of the mass and the place of the Liturgy of the Word for someone coming from a protestant background?

    Here are a few to get you started:

    The Biblical Roots of the Mass by Thomas Nash, ISBN 978-1-622822-591, published by Sophia Institute Press. (Also published under the title: Worthy Is the Lamb: The Biblical Roots of the Mass, published by Ignatius Press.)

    The Bible and the Mass: The Jewish Roots of Christian Liturgy by Brant Pitre, 22 CD set, available through this web page.

    CatholicBridge has a page of Bible References for the Catholic Mass. It’s a handy cross reference of scriptural sources for the various prayers of the Mass. Link.

    I read Pitre’s book, Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist, and it was quite good. I didn’t realize it came on disc as well.  Mind you, if the person reading it doesn’t really have a lot of theology in their background (and some Protestants do not or are not inclined that way), it might be a bit of a stretch for them.
