Catholic for a Reason: Scripture and the Mystery of the Family of God explains the teachings of the Catholic Church in a way that allows the reader to see the “big picture”: our heavenly Father’s loving plan to save us. Biblical, dynamic, and very readable, Catholic for a Reason presents God the Father’s plan as the “family plan” revealed by Christ.

Catholic for a Reason vibrates with the energy of the authors’ faith. This book is simultaneously defense of the faith and witness to the faith.

—Douglas O. Bushman, assistant director, Institute for Pastoral Theology, Ave Maria University

This is one of the most exciting books of theology or apologetics I have seen in years. It is not the usual fare: neither warmed-up leftovers nor foreign foods indigestible by the Catholic stomach, but ‘strong meat’ full of spiritual vitamins. Its central idea of ‘the family of God’ turns out to be central to every aspect of the Catholic faith, and no idea is more fundamental to our current crisis and ‘culture war’ than this one.

Peter Kreeft, author, Catholic Christianity

As a lifelong Catholic I always admired the fervor of many evangelicals, but I was puzzled by their selective use of Scripture and lack of awareness of the teaching of the Church in the first centuries. I have found this fine book a great help to my own understanding of Catholic apologetics as well as a valuable insight into evangelical thinking. As so often happens, the converts teach the cradle Catholics so very much about appreciating our own faith.

—Benedict J. Groeschel, executive director, The St. Francis House

A Japanese proverb says, ‘If your only tool is a hammer, you will tend to approach every problem as if it were a nail.’ But like a wise masterbuilder, Dr. Scott Hahn has helped give the Church not just one, but eleven new tools . . . to deal with these challenges. Catholic for a Reason is not just a tool chest—it’s a treasure chest.

Catholic for a Reason II: Scripture and the Mystery of the Mother of God, 2nd ed.

  • Editors: Scott Hahn and Leon J. Suprenant
  • Publisher: Emmaus Road Publishing
  • Publication Date: 2004
  • Pages: 227

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Catholic for a Reason II explores the mystery of Mary, the Mother of God, through the personal study and reflection of nine well-known Catholics—Scott Hahn, Jeff Cavins, Tim Gray, Curtis Martin, Kimberly Hahn, Edward Sri, Curtis Mitch, Sean Innerst, and Leon Suprenant. The result is a moving tribute and convincing testimony that demolishes common misconceptions about Catholic teaching on the Virgin Mary. The truth is that Catholics do not worship Mary. Catholic teaching on Mary is scriptural. And the Rosary and other Marian prayers are not vain repetitions.

You’ll learn why the Catholic Church teaches that Mary was immaculately conceived, remained always a virgin, and was assumed body and soul into heaven. You’ll understand how Mary is the fulfillment of Old Testament images. Most of all, you’ll discover what it means to be a child of Mary in the Church.

Catholic for a Reason II embraces the noble task of propagating the Church’s teaching regarding the Mother of God in the hope of educating minds to know her better and moving hearts to love her more.

Catholic for a Reason III: Scripture and the Mystery of the Mass

  • Editors: Scott Hahn and Regis J. Flaherty
  • Publisher: Emmaus Road Publishing
  • Publication Date: 2004
  • Pages: 203

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

From Genesis to Revelation, Catholic for a Reason III: Scripture and the Mystery of the Mass explores the biblical roots of the Mass and the practical ways in which the mystery of the Eucharist affects our everyday lives.

Catholic for a Reason III includes essays by prominent Catholic scholars and apologists, including Scott Hahn, Kimberly Hahn, Curtis Martin, Curtis Mitch, and Edward Sri.

This third volume . . . will provide for the reader much food for prayerful reflection, much of which will, I hope, take place before the tabernacle. The content of this volume will surely nourish the ‘WOW,’ which should abide in the heart of every disciple of Christ, so that our amazement in the face of the Eucharistic mystery, as well as our human capacity for wonder, might be stirred.

—Robert C. Morlino, bishop of Madison, WI

An excellent text for study groups or for personal formation in the theology and spirituality of the Eucharist. Each chapter is engaging and easy to read, yet solidly and comprehensively presents the Mass and the Eucharist, showing their scriptural foundation from Jewish roots through apostolic times, and unfolding their meaning for Christian living in the present, on to the future parousia. The meaning of the Eucharist is explored regarding Real Presence, sacrifice, evangelization, suffering, and marital communion. This is a book one can read for inspiration, yet return to frequently to review and study, finding applications for one’s daily life as well as insight for better participation in the Mass and in Eucharist devotion.
