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.

  1. The Lambs Supper is my favorite Scott Hahn book. I’ve read it three times and even lead a study on it with some friends.

  2. I’ve re-read ‘Home Sweet Rome’ several times over the past few years and each time I do so, tears come to my eyes! Scott Hahn has in this masterpiece, managed to put into words, something of the deep love and reverance I have for our wonderful Catholic faith. I simply love the way he writes and appreciate the way he is able to bring together and ‘open up’ the scriptures and link them with Catholic Tradition. A joy!

  3. I would enjoy reading all these books. It has been a while since I have read any of Scott Hahn’s books. Angel and Saints would be a new one for me and it is a topic of interest.

    Enjoyed both Rome Sweet Home as well as the Lamb’s Supper…one of my first spiritual reading following the birth of our little girl! Would love to read Hail, Holy Queen…so inspired by the struggles and journey both Mr. and Mrs. Hahn experienced.

  5. Elizabeth S. on

    I love the Lamb’s Supper. It explained so many things I never understood & connected the dots I never saw were related! I’m a huge Scott Hahn fan!

  6. I would love to win this. My husband and I are on a journey to learn more about the faith and this would be perfect.

  7. I really Liked the autobiography he wrote. I haven’t read his other works, but have listened to several lectures he has done that are out on Cd’s….good stuff!
