The eloquent teachings of Scott Hahn have moved thousands of Catholic Christians to a more vibrant expression of their faith. In A Father Who Keeps His Promises, the popular Catholic apologist explores the “covenant love” God reveals to us through Scripture. Hahn skillfully explains how throughout the narrative of the Bible, God has patiently reached out to us—despite our faults and shortcomings—in order to restore us to his divine family.

Join Hahn as he follows the grand adventure of God’s plan for the ages, beginning with Adam and Eve and continuing down through the generations to the coming of Christ and the birth of the Church. You’ll discover how the enduring love of the Father revealed in the Bible is the same persistent love he has for you.

A Father Who Keeps His Promises integrates seamlessly with your digital library, so you can access it from your desktop, tablet, or smartphone.

Top Highlights

“Why do we have to love like God in the first place? Scripture gives us an answer in two parts: First, the Old Testament shows that we were made to live like God by sharing love within the human family during our earthly stay; second, the New Testament shows that we were remade to live in God by sharing the love of the Blessed Trinity for eternity in heaven. Both elements are essential for understanding what it means to be truly human, but only the second one is our true and ultimate end, what theologians call the Beatific Vision.” (Pages 18–19)

“From a Hebrew perspective, the primary purpose of biblical history is to recount humanity’s familial history in the light of God’s covenant plan for his people.” (Page 21)

“In short, the reason why Adam succumbed to pride and disobedience was because of his fear of suffering and unwillingness to die, even for the love of his Father and bride.” (Page 64)

“The moral order of human life may be invisible, but it is governed by covenant laws that are no less firmly fixed than the laws of physics.” (Page 29)

“Sin is thus exposed for what it really is, our refusal to live according to the perfect love of the Trinity” (Page 19)

Praise for the Print Edition

For years Scott Hahn has told audiences about God’s covenant love and its implications in their lives, and for years his friends have nagged him to reduce his remarks to writing. . . . Now we have that book, and now we can see clearly why Hahn affirms that the only tragedy in life is not being a saint.

Karl Keating, president, Catholic Answers

Scott Hahn’s central idea of covenant and ‘kinship’ (family) proves to be a Rosetta Stone for scriptural hieroglyphics, and a disarmingly simple one at that. Once you have glanced through this ‘lens,’ you will never see the big picture of salvation history in the same way again. . . . I know of no more authentically biblical, more reliably Catholic, or more exciting theologian in the world today than Scott Hahn.

Peter Kreeft, professor of philosophy, Boston College

    I read this in 1998 as a new convert (received into the Church in 1996) and have re-read it many times since. Have given away I don't know how many copies. Having it in Logos/Verbum format opens up a whole new dimension of studying salvation history. Thank y'all so much for making this available,
