I bought a second copy to re-read and then give to an RCIA participant who is very bible-based. (I am leading RCIA at my deployed location - pray for us!).
It is such a treasure - and then-Cardinal Ratzinger is quoted several times by Hahn.
He tampts one to join an Eastern rite like you did!!!!

"The Eastern Churches are the Treasures of the Catholic Church" - Pope John XXIII
The Vatican II Council declared that "all should realize it is of supreme importance to understand, venerate, preserve, and foster the exceedingly rich liturgical and spiritual heritage of the Eastern churches, in order faithfully to preserve the fullness of Christian tradition" (Unitatis Redintegrato, 15). Pope John Paul II said that "the Catholic Church is both Eastern and Western."
Check your local community at the following link and look into attending an Eastern Catholic Liturgy (not to be confused with the Orthodox Church).
The Eastern Catholic Traditions retain the rich heritage of our church, without the "novelties" introduced into the Novus Ordo liturgy.
Prayers for your group now and always.
