Hail, Holy Queen : the Mother of God in the word of God by Scott Hahn( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 Revelation and reveals how it is foretold in the very first pages of Genesis and in the story of King David's monarchy, which speaks of a privileged place for the mother of the king. --From publisher's description

Reasons to believe : how to understand, explain, and defend the Catholic faith by Scott Hahn( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book unravels mysteries, corrects misunderstandings, and offers thoughtful, straightforward responses to common objections about the Catholic faith. Bestselling author Scott Hahn, a convert to Catholicism, has experienced the doubts that so often drive discussions about God and the Church. In the years before his conversion, he was first a nonbeliever and then an anti-Catholic clergyman. In REASONS TO BELIEVE, he explains the "how and why" of the Catholic faith'drawing from Scripture, his own struggles and those of other converts, as well as from everyday life and even natural science. Hahn shows that reason and revelation, nature and the supernatural, are not opposed to one another; rather they offer complementary evidence that God exists. But He doesn't merely exist. He is someone, and He has a personality, a personal style, that is discernible and knowable. Hahn leads readers to see that God created the universe with a purpose and a form'a form that can be found in the Book of Genesis and that is there when we view the natural world through a microscope, through a telescope, or through our contact lenses. At the heart of the book is Hahn's examination of the ten "keys to the kingdom"'the characteristics of the Church clearly evident in the Scriptures. As the story of creation discloses, the world is a house that has a Father, a palace where the king is really present. God created the cosmos to be a kingdom, and that kingdom is the universal Church, fully revealed by Jesus Christ
Lord, have mercy : the healing power of confession by Scott Hahn( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Lord, Have Mercy, Scott Hahn explores the sacrament of reconciliation and shows why it is the key to spiritual growth, particularly in these times of intense anxiety and uncertainty." "Drawing on the history of ancient Israel, the Gospels, the writings of the early Church, and the lives of the saints, Hahn reveals the living, scriptural heart of the Church's teachings on penance, forgiveness, and reconciliation. It is a story that begins with the sin of Adam and Eve, continues in the biographies of Moses, King David, and the Apostle Peter, and reverberates in the lives of believers today. Hahn presents the Catholic and biblical perspective on sin and mercy, elucidating in clear, easily understood language the true import of Jesus' simple, yet profound promise - "I am the door; if anyone enters by Me, he will be saved" (John 10:9)."--Jacket
Swear to God : the promise and power of the Sacraments by Scott Hahn( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: Scott Hahn argues that every society--be it nation, neighborhood, family, or Church--is held together by the power of personal commitments. When we really want to change our lives, when we want to make love endure, we mark the transition by an oath. That's what people do on their wedding day, on the day they become citizens, on the day they enter the military, or on the day they assume public office. The words we say bind us to a course of action. But the most powerful oaths of all are those that mark the Christian Sacraments. In SWEAR TO GOD, Hahn restores the connection between sacred words and human action, promises and commitment. As in his previous bestsellers, Hahn draws on the history of ancient Israel, the Gospels, the writings of the early Church, and the lives of the saints. He shows how God's covenant--the promises he made to Adam, Noah, Abraham, and Moses--became the driving force in history. When Jesus fulfilled all these oaths, he established a "new covenant," with its own sacrifices, but with greater power than ever before. In the Church's Sacraments--such as Baptism, Reconciliation, Holy Communion, Matrimony--each individual enters the covenant and swears the oath. In doing so, each individual calls down a blessing or a curse. If Western society is eroding, perhaps it is because we, as a people, have not kept our covenants with God. SWEAR TO GOD helps us to break out of that cycle, forever!

Kinship by covenant : a canonical approach to the fulfillment of God's saving promises by Scott Hahn( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the canonical scriptures were produced over many centuries and represent a diverse library of texts, they are unified by stories of divine covenants and their implications for God's people. In this book, Scott Hahn shows how covenant, as an overarching theme, makes possible a coherent reading of the diverse traditions found within the canonical scriptures. Biblical covenants, though varied in form and content, all serve the purpose of extending sacred bonds of kinship, Hahn explains. Specifically, divine covenants form and shape a father-son bond between God and the chosen people. Biblical narratives turn on that fact, and biblical theology depends upon it. The author demonstrates how divine sonship represents a covenant relationship with God that has been consistent throughout salvation history. --From publisher's description
Letter and Spirit : from written text to living Word in the liturgy by Scott Hahn( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and German and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an exploration of the complex relationship between the Bible and the Catholic liturgy. In Letter and Spirit, Scott Hahn extends the message he began in The Lamb's Supper, offering insights into what the Bible teaches us about living the spiritual life. For both Christians and Jews, the texts of the Bible are not simply records of historical events. They are intended, through public recitations in churches and synagogues, to bring listeners and readers into the sweeping story of redemption as it unfolds in the Bible. Focusing on the Catholic Mass, Hahn describes how God's Word is meant to open our eyes to the life-giving power of the sacraments, and how the liturgy brings about the "actualization" of the saving truths of Scripture

A father who keeps his promises : God's covenant love in scripture by Scott Hahn( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and Chinese and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The eloquent teachings of Scott Hahn have moved thousands of Catholic Christians to a more vital expression of their faith. In A Father Who Keeps His Promises, the popular Catholic apologist explores the covenant love God reveals to us in the Scriptures, and explains how God patiently reaches out to us--despite our faults and shortcoming--to restore us into relationship with his divine Family. Join Hahn as he follows the high 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 patient love of the Father revealed in the Bible is the same persistent love he has for you. By focusing on our status as part of the family of God, he shows how the broken human family is made whole in Christ. This book helps readers understand the deep personal love God bears for his people and the plan that he has to bring them into an intimate family relationship." -- Publisher's description
The kingdom of God as liturgical empire : a theological commentary on 1-2 Chronicles by Scott Hahn( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chronicles offers the first attempt to understand and interpret the entire sweep of Old Testament history from the creation of the world to the Israelites' return from exile. This commentary on 1-2 Chronicles shows how the author of Chronicles reads the Old Testament as the first canonical critic; as such, the Chronicler is the first biblical theologian. Scott Hahn identifies in the Chronicler's work a decisive biblical worldview and highlights the Abrahamic key to the Chronicler's narrative. He also explores how Chronicles provides readers with important insights into key New Testament concepts such as Jerusalem, Zion, the Temple, the church, the Kingdom, and the messianic identification of Christ as King and Priest. In fact, Chronicles is the only work in the Old Testament to use the expression Kingdom of God. The Abrahamic key helps readers see the importance of the Abrahamic covenant in the theology of the New Testament. Hahn presents 1-2 Chronicles as a liturgical and theological interpretation of Israel's history, emphasizing the liturgical structure and content of Chronicles and providing fresh insight on salvation history: past, present, and future. The book gives professors, students, and pastors a better understanding of Chronicles, salvation history, and theological interpretation of the Old Testament"--Publisher description
Letter and Spirit from written text to living Word in the liturgy by Scott Hahn( Recording )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scriptual texts have always been tied to religious rituals, dating back to the first Christmas and the Jewish temples. Connecting the Christian to the Bible, the Bible to worship, and worship to the divine, Hahn reveals that the modern Bible was canonized to be used during liturgy, not only for devotional reading. Hahn caters to both novices and academics, including chapters defining technical terms and supporting his research with evidence from the best theological scholars
Answering the new atheism : dismantling Dawkins' case against God by Scott Hahn( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Consuming the Word : the New Testament and the Eucharist in the early church by Scott Hahn( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Long before the New Testament was a document, it was a sacrament. Jesus called the Eucharist by the name Christians subsequently gave to the latter books of the Holy Bible. It was the "New Covenant," the "New Testament," in his blood. Christians later extended the phrase to cover the books produced by the apostles and their companions; but they did so because these were the books that could be read at Mass. This simple and demonstrable historical fact has enormous implications for the way we read the Bible. In Consuming the Word: The New Testament and the Eucharist in the Early Church, Dr. Scott Hahn undertakes an examination of some of Christianity's most basic terms to discover what they meant to the sacred authors, the apostolic preachers, and their first hearers. Moreover, at a time when the Church is embarking on a New Evangelization he draws lessons for Christians today to help solidify their understanding of the why it is Catholics do what Catholics do."--Publisher's website
Politicizing the Bible : the roots of historical criticism and the secularization of Scripture, 1300-1700 by Scott Hahn( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Resisting the typical, dry methods of contemporary scholarship, this powerful examination revisits the biblical days of life-and-death conflict, struggles for power between popes and kings, and secret alliances of intellectuals united by a desire to pit worldly goals against the spiritual priorities of the church. This account looks beyond the pretense of neutrality and objectivity often found in secular study, and brings to light the appropriation of scripture by politically motivated interpreters. Questioning the techniques taken for granted at divinity schools worldwide, their origins are traced to the writings of Machiavelli and Marsilio of Padua, the political projects of Henry VIII, Thomas Hobbes, and John Locke, and the quest for an empire of science on the part of Descartes and Spinoza. Intellectual and inspiring, an argument is made for bringing Christianity back to biblical literacy."--Publisher's description

Angels and saints : a biblical guide to friendship with God's holy ones by Scott Hahn( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

They're cast in plaster or simpering on a holy card, performing miracles with superhero strength, or playing a harp in highest heaven. Yet they are very near to us in every way. Hahn dispels the false notions and urban legends people use to keep the saints at a safe distance. The truth is that Jesus Christ has united heaven and earth in a close communion. Drawing deeply from Scripture, Hahn shows that the hosts of heaven surround the earthly Church as a "great cloud of witnesses."
Joy to the world : how Christ's coming changed everything (and still does) by Scott Hahn( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What could be more familiar than the Christmas story--and yet what could be more extraordinary? The cast of characters is strange and exotic: shepherds and magicians, an emperor and a despot, angels, and a baby who is Almighty God. The strangeness calls for an explanation, and this book provides it by examining the characters and the story in light of the biblical and historical context"
