by Hahn, Scott

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.

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.
