A Father Who Keeps His Promises: God’s Covenant Love in Scripture

  • Author: Scott Hahn
  • Publisher: Servant Books
  • Publication Date: 1998
  • Pages: 294

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.

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.

Answering the New Atheism: Dismantling Dawkins’ Case against God

  • Authors: Scott Hahn and Benjamin Wiker
  • Publisher: Companyname
  • Publication Date: 2010
  • Pages: xxx

In Answering the New Atheism: Dismantling Dawkins’ Case against God, Hahn addresses Dawkins’ inflammatory rhetoric and bad reasoning that are misleading millions of readers who don’t see the holes in his argument. In a lively and fair analysis, Scott Hahn and Benjamin Wiker expose the shoddy reasoning, logical blunders, and factual errors of Dawkins’ bestseller The God Delusion. Along the way, Hahn and Wiker offer a cogent and convincing argument for God’s existence.

Dr. Scott Hahn and Dr. Benjamin Wiker, show, again and again, that atheists like Richard Dawkins are putting forth shoddy arguments, and once those arguments are dismantled by cool reason, there is very little left.

—Dinesh D’Souza, Rishwain Research Scholar, Hoover Institution

Scott Hahn and Benjamin Wiker patiently, thoroughly pick apart the reasoning of Richard Dawkins until very little is left standing. I highly recommend Answering the New Atheism to anyone who wants to watch scientific atheist bullies get their comeuppance.

—Michael K. Behe, professor of biochemistry, Lehigh University

When two Catholic intellectual heavyweights collaborate on a project, expectations are high. Scott Hahn and Benjamin Wiker, scholars and bestselling authors, do not disappoint us in Answering the New Atheism. As coauthors they have produced a gem—a book that provides a clear response to the atheistic secularism of Richard Dawkins. In a logical, measured, and accessible manner they provide the reader with what is needed ‘to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have . . . [doing so] with gentleness and respect’ (1 Peter 3:15–16).

Regis J. Flaherty, author, Last Things First

He is the author of several books and writes regularly for a variety of journals, including Catholic World Report and National Catholic Register.

Catholic Bible Dictionary

  • Author: Scott Hahn
  • Publisher: Doubleday
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 1,008

Scott Hahn, internationally renowned theologian and biblical scholar, has inspired millions with his insight into the Catholic faith. His important reference guide, Catholic Bible Dictionary, contains more than 5,000 clear and accessible entries and covers a wide range of people, places, and topics. From Genesis to Revelation, the whole of salvation history is presented and explained in smart, easy-to-understand prose.

Catholic Bible Dictionary is an invaluable source of information, insight, and guidance for Catholics and others who are interested in enriching their understanding of sacred Scripture. Scott Hahn draws from two millennia of scholarship to create an accessible and comprehensive tool for deeper and more rewarding biblical study.

Scott Hahn’s writings and conferences have been so effective in bringing Catholics closer to Sacred Scripture. His valuable Catholic Bible Dictionary will be another big help to faithful Catholics who have taken seriously the Church’s encouragement to become immersed in God’s Word.

—Most Reverend Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of New York

Catholic Bible Dictionary is an extremely useful tool for any Bible student, whether beginner or advanced. This dictionary is particularly helpful for Catholics who need both etymological studies of terms and solid theological help. My only hope is that the readers will study the articles on a regular basis and eventually read the whole dictionary as they study the whole Bible.

—Fr. Mitchell C. Pacwa, SJ, president, Ignatius Productions

Catholic Bible Dictionary is a superb reference book that is an absolute must for all students of Scripture—both clerics and laity. . . . It is written specifically for Catholics and is therefore more extensive and complete than others. . . this book is essential for students of Scripture; it is also indispensable for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of God’s Word. In fact, I believe that every Catholic who owns a Bible should also have a copy of Catholic Bible Dictionary

Catholic for a Reason: Scripture and the Mystery of the Family of God

  • Editors: Scott Hahn and Leon J. Suprenant
  • Publisher: Emmaus Road Publishing
  • Publication Date: 1998
  • Pages: 310

Catholic for a Reason: Scripture and the Mystery of the Family of God by Scott Hahn and Leon J. Suprenant 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

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

  • Editors: Scott Hahn and Leon J. Suprenant
  • Edition: 2nd
  • Publisher: Emmaus Road Publishing
  • Publication Date: 2004
  • Pages: 227

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 J. 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

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. You’ll find essays by prominent Catholic scholars and apologists, including Scott Hahn, Curtis Martin, Kimberly Hahn, Edward Sri, and Curtis Mitch.

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, Wisconsin

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.

Hail, Holy Queen: The Mother of God in the Word of God

  • Author: Scott Hahn
  • Publisher: Random House
  • Publication Date: 2006
  • Pages: 208

Hail, Holy Queen is a fresh and enlightening new perspective on Mary, Mother of God, and her importance in the Christian faith. In this text, Catholic scholar and apologist Scott Hahn employs an accessible, entertaining style to argue for Mary’s essential role in Christianity’s redemptive message. Most Christians know that the life of Jesus is foreshadowed throughout the Old Testament. Through a close examination of the Bible, as well as the work of both Catholic and Protestant scholars and clergy, Hahn brings to light the small but significant details showing that just as Jesus is the “New Adam,” so Mary is the “New Eve.” He unveils the Marian mystery at the heart of the book of Revelation and reveals how it is foretold in the very first pages of the book of Genesis and in the story of King David’s monarchy, which speaks of a privileged place for the mother of the king.

Building on these scriptural and historical foundations, Hahn presents a new look at the Marian doctrines: her immaculate conception, perpetual virginity, assumption, and coronation. As he guides modern-day readers through passages filled with mysteries and poetry, Hahn helps them rediscover the ancient art and science of reading the Scriptures and gain a more profound understanding of their truthfulness and relevance to faith and the practice of religion in the contemporary world.

In simple and straightforward prose, Dr. Scott Hahn’s Hail, Holy Queen explains the place of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Christian piety. Eminently readable and insightfully structured, Hail, Holy Queen examines and analyzes the biblical and theological foundations of Marian devotion with insight and deep faith.

—Edward Cardinal Egan, archbishop of New York

I highly recommend this splendid work of Scott Hahn. I believe that so many people will find Hail, Holy Queen very helpful in discovering and re-discovering Mary. The book’s style is simple and elegant. Its message, in fidelity to Vatican II, is crystal-clear in concentrating our attention on Mary, the Mother of God, in her relationship to Christ and His Church.

—Most Reverend Justin Rigali, archbishop of St. Louis

In his inimitable sparkling style Scott Hahn serves up a feast of Scripture, theology, and spirituality for Christians—Catholic and Protestant alike—for understanding the role of Mary in God’s purposes.

—Fr. George T. Montague, professor of Scripture, St. Mary’s University, San Antonio, Texas

Rome Sweet Home: Our Journey to Catholicism

  • Authors: Scott Hahn and Kimberly Hahn
  • Publisher: Ignatius Press
  • Publication Date: 1993
  • Pages: 198

Scott Hahn was a Presbyterian minister, the top student in his seminary class, a brilliant Scripture scholar, and militantly anti-Catholic . . . until he reluctantly began to discover that his “enemy” had all the right answers. Kimberly, also a top-notch theology student in the seminary, is the daughter of a well-known Protestant minister, and went through a tremendous “dark night of the soul” after Scott converted to Catholicism.

Their conversion story and love for the Church has captured the hearts and minds of thousands of lukewarm Catholics and brought them back into an active participation in the Church. They have also influenced countless conversions to Catholicism among their friends and those who have heard their powerful testimony.

Written with simplicity, charity, grace, and wit, the Hahns’ deep love and knowledge of Christ and of Scripture is evident and contagious throughout their story. Their loves of truth and of neighbor are equally evident, and their theological focus on the great importance of the family, both biological and spiritual, will be a source of inspiration for all readers.

This volume includes a foreword by Peter Kreeft.

One of the beautiful and bright-shining stars in the firmament of hope for our desperate days is this couple, the Hahns, and this story of their life and their conversion.

Peter Kreeft, professor of philosophy, Boston College

Dynamic, fresh, and devoted are terms which describe the approach that Scott and Kimberly Hahn take to assist in the renewal of the Church in the United States. Now, with their conversion, they are admirably suited to assist Catholics in re-discovering the treasure that has been entrusted to them. My hope is that many people will benefit from contact with Scott and Kimberly Hahn through their stories of conversion.

  • Publisher: Emmaus Road Publishing

  • Pages: 191

In Scripture Matters: Essays on Reading the Bible from the Heart of the Church, Scott Hahn takes a penetrating look into the depths of Scripture, showing the reader how to uncover its many layers of meaning and inspiration.

Scripture Matters serves as both an instructional guide to reading the Bible and a delightful meditation on the grandeur of God’s Word. Hahn effectively illustrates his discussion with the writings of Saint Thomas Aquinas, Saint Josemaría Escrivá, Cardinal Ratzinger, and other exemplary scholars of Scripture who truly speak “from the heart of the Church.”

Scripture Matters is a masterful guide to reading and understanding the Bible—a work that combines intelligence and depth with a wonderful readability. Dr. Hahn’s chapters on historical criticism, the real presence, and the place of Scripture in Catholic teaching are worth reading again and again.

—Charles J. Chaput, archbishop of Denver

. . . Scripture Matters reflects not only a profound theology of God’s Word . . . but also analyzes and critiques some of the more prevalent errors which have crept into discussions of the interpretation and proper use of Holy Scripture in the lives of individuals and the life of the Church. I heartily recommend this work for students and all who wish to enhance the effective role of Holy Scripture in their lives.

—John J. Myers, archbishop of Newark

Dr. Hahn has provided in Scripture Matters an invaluable series of essays that will not only help to keep students of Sacred Scripture on track, but also give them a sense of certitude concerning the Church’s long-standing tradition of interpretation. After reading Scripture Matters, you will jump into Scripture study with a renewed zeal. Dr. Hahn’s excitement for Scripture will rub off on you—get ready!

Spirit and Life: Essays on Interpreting the Bible in Ordinary Time

  • Editor: Scott Hahn
  • Publisher: Emmaus Road Publishing
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 157

In Scripture Matters, biblical theologian and teacher Scott Hahn introduced ordinary lay-Catholics to the Catholic approach to interpreting the Bible. His presentation of good, sound biblical scholarship dealt squarely with questions of historical criticism, the real presence, and the place of Scripture in Catholic teaching.

Now, in Spirit and Life, Hahn presents nine selected essays that teach the faithful to “read the Bible from the heart of the Church.” Hahn explains that Scripture is only fully received within the context of the Mass. The Bible and the liturgy were made for each other, and to read Scripture in the heart of the Church is to read it with Eucharistic eyes. It is here that we see the great juncture of love: written Word and incarnate Word.

Scott Hahn, in his writing, teaching and lectures, has helped so many people grasp more fully the wisdom of God found in the pages of sacred Scripture. His book, Spirit and Life: Essays on Interpreting the Bible in Ordinary Time, is one more example of his scholarship, teaching ability and personal appreciation of the Word of God. In this work he addresses in an engaging and informative manner how to ‘read the Bible from the heart of the Church.’

—Donald W. Wuerl, archbishop of Washington DC

Once again, Dr. Hahn is to be thanked for his efforts to bring the Bible into the heart of the Church and her sons and daughters. Spirit and Life had much to offer me as a pastor and preacher.

—R. Daniel Conlon, bishop of Steubenville

The Lamb’s Supper: The Mass as Heaven on Earth

  • Author: Scott Hahn
  • Publisher: Random House
  • Publication Date: 1999
  • Pages: 192

Best-selling author Scott Hahn sheds new light on the Mass, offering readers a deeper appreciation of the most familiar of Catholic rituals. Of all things Catholic, there is nothing so familiar as the Mass. Yet most Catholics sitting in the pews on Sundays fail to see the powerful supernatural drama that enfolds them. Pope John Paul II described the Mass as “Heaven on Earth,” explaining that what “we celebrate on Earth is a mysterious participation in the heavenly liturgy.”

The Lamb’s Supper reveals a long-lost secret of the Church: the early Christians’ key to understanding the mysteries of the Mass was the New Testament Book of Revelation. With its bizarre imagery, its mystic visions of heaven, and its end-of-time prophecies, Revelation mirrors the sacrifice and celebration of the Eucharist. Beautifully written, in clear direct language, Hahn’s book will help readers see the Mass with new eyes, pray the liturgy with a renewed heart, and enter into the Mass more fully, enthusiastically, intelligently, and powerfully than ever before.

Understanding “Our Father”: Biblical Reflections on the Lord’s Prayer

  • Author: Scott Hahn
  • Publisher: Emmaus Road Publishing
  • Publication Date: 2002
  • Pages: 146

The prayer at hand has been called many things: the Pater Noster, the Our Father, the Model Prayer, the Lord’s Prayer. In Understanding “Our Father”, Scott Hahn presents a unique meditation on this common prayer, leading readers to consider its wealth of meaning. Relying on the Fathers and Doctors of the Church as well as on sacred Scripture, Hahn takes each of the seven petitions of the Our Father individually and draws out the implications of the prayer given to us by Christ himself.

With remarkable clarity, keen personal insight, and solid catechesis, Dr. Scott Hahn once more takes the reader into a critical element of the faith: the nature and importance of prayer. His personal meditations on the Lord’s Prayer, combined with theological reflections from four saints and Fathers of the Church, are refreshing to the soul—nearly as refreshing as prayer itself!

—Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan, archbishop of New York

The indefatigable Dr. Hahn has come up with a miniature masterpiece, miniature in its winsome simplicity, a masterpiece in its insight and depth. It merits a myriad of readers—and a miniature doxology.

—Robert I. Bradley, advisor, Catholics United for Faith

Scott Hahn brings excitement and scholarship to his inspirational work on the Lord’s Prayer. Once again, Scott takes what is familiar to us and, with refreshing insight, inspires us to a renewed zeal.

—Michael Scanlan, chancellor, Franciscan University of Steubenville
