It looks like this is the new cover of the new edition of The Mass of the Early Christians. The new one’s not available on Amazon yet, but can be pre-ordered from the publisher, Our Sunday Visitor. To order the expanded edition, call toll-free 1-800-348-2440 and make sure to request T-419.

What’s on the cover? It’s a fifth-century mosaic depicting loaves and fishes, a favorite eucharistic symbol of the patristic era. This particular mosaic was found in the remains of a Byzantine church in Tabgha, Israel, the traditional site of Jesus’ feeding of the 5,000 (Mark 6:41).

Here are a few details on what’s new in this edition.

Nice cover. Did I tell you that I’ve sold more copies of Mass than of Fathers? I assumed the latter book might have more Evangelical appeal (which is important in Kentucky!), so go figure…
