Go to the Supper with joy, my friend. Go to the Supper that does not end.

Just go to Mass and you will see the Lamb throw open His arms for thee.


The Supper of the Lamb once again brings together bestselling authors Scott Hahn and Emily Stimpson Chapman, this time to introduce children of all ages to the biblical roots of the Mass. With edifying illustrations from artist Tricia Dugat, The Supper of the Lamb draws from the Book of Revelation as it slowly unveils the layers of meaning in the Mass.


Children of all ages will begin to see how God’s plan, from creation to the Incarnation, leads to the Mass—and that they, too, are invited to partake in the Lamb’s Supper where heaven and earth meet

“I have rarely encountered the Gospel come alive on a page in such a stunning way. The fact that this book is intended for young children—with beautiful pictures, easy-to-understand words, and catchy rhyme and verse—makes it a true masterpiece. I pray The Supper of the Lamb finds its way into every Christian home because it will impact every heart: the ones who read and the ones who listen.”

“Communicating the deep spiritual reality of the Mass in a short book for children is no easy feat, but Scott Hahn and Emily Stimpson Chapman accomplish it beautifully—they even made it rhyme! Readers of all ages will be entranced by the layers of symbolism and poetry accompanied by gorgeous and timeless illustrations. A wonderful book to help form a child’s imagination for the mystery of the Mass!”

—Haley Stewart
Author of the Sister Seraphina Mysteries


“St. Gregory the Great compared Scripture to a river: shallow enough for a lamb to go wading but deep enough for an elephant to swim. The Supper of the Lamb is how children can wade in the Bible’s most difficult book. Beautifully done.”

—Mike Aquilina
Author of More Than Fifty Books, Including How the Fathers Read the Bible


“Scott Hahn and Emily Stimpson Chapman are making little theologians out of our kids. I can’t believe how much is packed into this book. I almost hesitate to give it to my children, knowing that they will quickly surpass my own understanding of the faith. Of course, that’s my greatest desire for them and, luckily, I can read the book and learn alongside them!”

—Anna Mitchell
Cohost and Producer of the Son Rise Morning Show on EWTN Radio


“I know this will be a great conversation starter and the perfect tool to teach my kids why we go to Mass and what happens there. Beautifully written and illustrated, this book beckons everyone to grow in love and understanding of the Supper of the Lamb.”

  1. Nancy Gideon

    I enjoy all of Emily Stimpson Chapman’s work so when I read that this book was available for preorder, it was an easy decision. My eldest son opened it for Christmas and we read this beautiful book, which gave me goosebumps. What beautiful imagery and illustrations this book contains! Highly recommend!

  2. Lindsay Schlegel

    This book is positively stunning. I read The Lamb’s Supper a decade ago, and it had a powerful, lasting impact on me and my faith. The care and love with which that text has been translated into a picture book (for adults, we can call this a coffee table book, if that helps) is breath-taking. I will read this to my kids, but I will likely also read through it on my own as a means of spiritual reading and praying with a text. An essential book for any Catholic home.

  3. Katie

    Anything recommended by Elizabeth Busby I will buy. The team up of my dreams, thank you for choosing her. Cannot wait to give these to my two girls to (hopefully) keep them gently, reverently occupied during church.
