Angels and Saints: A Biblical Guide to Friendship with God’s Holy Ones

We have four copies of Angels and Saints to give away this week!

About the book:

Angels and saints. Catholics tend to think of them as different from the rest of us. 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. In this lively book, Scott 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, Dr. Hahn shows that the hosts of heaven surround the earthly Church as a “great cloud of witnesses.” The martyrs cry out from heaven’s altar begging for justice on the earth. The prayers of the saints and angels rise to God, in the Book of Revelation, like the sweet aroma of incense.

Dr. Hahn tells the stories of several saints (and several angels too) in a way that’s fresh and new. The saints are spiritual giants but with flesh-and-blood reality. They have strong, holy ambitions—and powerful temptations and opposition that must be overcome. Their stories are amazing and yet familiar enough to motivate us to live more beautiful lives. In this telling of their story, the saints are neither otherworldly nor this-worldly. They exemplify the integrated life that every Christian is called to live.

Still, their lives are as different from one another as human lives can be. Dr. Hahn shows the heavenly Church in all its kaleidoscopic diversity—from Moses to Mary, Augustine to Therese, and the first century to the last century.

Only saints will live in heaven. We need to be more like the saints if we want to live in heaven someday. Dr. Hahn shows us that our heavenly life can begin now.

It must.

Share.

    Rome Sweet Home is my fav but also love Hail Holy Queen and would love to win Angels and Saints!

  2. I would love these, but I would particularly be interested in Hahn’s Saints and Angels seeing as how I was blessed to be consecrated to my Guardian Angel this past year! Thanks!

  3. “A Father Who Keeps His Promises” will always have a special place in my heart. It was the first Scott Hahn book I ever read, and it helped the Bible make so much more sense to me.

  4. ‘Rome Sweet Home’ is part of my story of coming into full Communion with the Church, so that’s definitely a favorite. I have both Signs of Life and Saints and Angels on my “To Read” list though.

    I would have to say “Angels and Saints” would be my favorite. I would love to have this collection, thank you. Mary

    I’ve only read Rome Sweet Home so far it was great! I’ve been wanting to read the Lamb Supper and Angels and Saints <3 <3

  7. I loved reading his book ” Home Sweet Rome”. I love that we have heavenly helpers and would enjoy reading his newest book to appreciate even more the role of the angels and saints.

  8. Our parish gave us Rome Sweet Home @ Christmas this year … would love to read other Scott Hahn books as well this summer!

  9. I’m most interested in reading Hail, Holy Queen. As a new mother, Mary is even more inspirational now than ever!

    Rome Sweet Home played a big part in bringing me home to the Catholic Church. I am very grateful for Scott Hahns’ work!

  11. I am a new Catholic grandmom who,with my “cradle-Catholic” husband of 37 years, raised our children Ruth, Hannah, Abbie, and John. Some of this child-raising time took place in a log cabin outside of Haines, Alaska with other home-schooling Christians.
    Recently I studied with our Deacon and others “The Lamb’s Supper”. I also recently read and would recommend the Kindle book, “Saints and Social Justice: A Guide to Changing the World” by Brandon Vogt. I would be honored to read all the books in Dr. Hahn’s package, and I’d probably begin with Saints and Angels! I am a retired teacher, and in addition to teaching K-2 Sunday school, would also love to share these books by having study sessions with adults.

  12. I am dying to read Angels and Saints by Scott Hahn! I spotted it at Barnes and Noble but it was $25.00! Not in my budget so hoping to win :)
    Thanks for the chance.

  13. I’m am very excited to read all of these! I recently discovered Scott Hahn’s books and would love to get these :)

    Received my copy of Angels & Saints! I was on chapter three and then during a BBQ on Saturday evening and through discussion I knew the individual I was speaking with could really use this book at this moment in her life. So this morning at Mass I passed it along to her so it could be a blessing to her.
    My next copy is in the mail! Love Scott
    Hahn’s books and the ministry he continues to provide and how he allows God to use his life for the furthering of Christ’s Kingdom!

  15. I LOVE Scott Hahn. His writing is so accessible! Hail, Holy Queen & Lamb’s Supper changed the way that I relate to my faith and share it with others!!

  16. “The Lamb’s Supper” is one of my favorites! They all are, actually, but that one has had a lot of impact on how I view the book of Revelation!

  17. I LOVED “The Lamb’s Supper”. I’ve learned a lot from all of Mr. Hahn’s books. I am looking forward to reading “The Angels and Saints”. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  18. I’m leading a study on the Lord’s Supper right now. Reading that for the first time was a very eye-opening experience. I hope to learn some more if I win anything from this giveaway!
