Emmaus Road 2001

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Sacraments in Scripture: Salvation History Made Present is a Bible study on the seven Sacraments, prefigured in the Old Testament and instituted by Jesus Christ in the New.

Following the teaching of the Second Vatican Council and the Catechism of the Catholic Church on Sacred Scripture, Timothy Gray delves into the biblical origin for each of these masterpieces of God’s love. In this Scripture study, Gray guides readers through the Gospels, showing Christ’s deliberate acts to inaugurate these sacred signs as the foundation of the New Covenant. With review questions at the end of each chapter, this study is ideal for both group and individual study, and is perfect for learning how to answer contemporary objections to the Sacraments.

Praise for the Print Edition

This fine little book will open to you the ancient meaning of the Sacraments which the Church has kept alive to this day. In the Sacraments Christ himself ministers to us through the Church. This book will be an excellent antidote to watered-down versions of sacramental theology.

—Fr. Benedict J. Groeschel, CFR

No doubt, you will leave Sacraments in Scripture—as I did—empowered for a richer experience of the liturgy. But, as time goes on, you’ll notice something more. After reading this book, your experience of the Sacraments will, in turn, empower you for a richer reading of the Scriptures.

Scott Hahn, professor of theology and Scripture, Franciscan University of Steubenville

Sacraments in Scripture is an excellent tool for deepening one’s understanding of the mystery of Christ’s abiding presence with us through the Sacraments. . . . I commend this book for the catechesis of young people and adults. It is an excellent tool for studying an essential part of the Church’s teaching on the Sacraments.

—Most Rev. Raymond L. Burke, bishop of La Crosse
