“You already know Mark Hart as a smart, funny , Spirit-filled leader and speaker. When you read this book, you will also know him as a pastoral theologian in the style of Pope Francis who can make you, me, and your non-practicing Catholic neighbor fall in love with God all over again through the Mass.”

"Mark Hart understands well the challenges for the contemporary worshipper and provides a path that can lead to a true encounter with the living Christ. In Behold the Mystery, Hart approaches the Mass primarily not as a 'what' to be explained but as a 'who' to be encountered. Drawing from the deepest wells of the Church's Scripture and Tradition, Mark re-presents the Mass to the contemporary worshipper as a Mystery to behold and as a Person to love - the living Christ.”

"If you pick up Behold the Mystery, you will do just that: gaze with fresh eyes upon what Catholics dare to call "the foretaste of heaven." Those desiring to travel deeper into this ever-new mystery will find here a practical and punchy guidebook. Behold the Mystery is a gripping and captivating handbook that opens wide the door of the mass for all Catholics courageous enough to knock."
