+  The Strength of the Catholic Gospel in the New Evangelization (full hour)

  • Description: The typical Protestant interpretation of the Gospel is fairly simple: accept Jesus as your Savior and you will go to Heaven. This sounds easy and is certainly easy to share, but it falls short of the depth of the Catholic view of the Gospels and salvation. Scott Hahn joins us to discuss the richness of the Catholic Gospel and its role in the New Evangelization.

    • Romans (Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture)

      In this addition to the successful Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture (CCSS) series, Scott Hahn, a bestselling author and a leading Catholic interpreter of Scripture, examines Romans from within the living tradition of the Church for pastoral ministers, lay readers, and students alike. The CCSS relates Scripture to Christian life today, is faithfully Catholic, and is supplemented by features designed to help readers understand the Bible more deeply and use it more effectively in teaching, preaching, evangelization, and other forms of ministry. Supported by leading Catholic scholars as well as popular Bible teachers, the series offers a unique level of commentary for Catholic students of the Bible. Its attractive packaging and accessible writing style make it a series to own--and to read! Drawn from the best of contemporary scholarship, series volumes are keyed to the liturgical year and include an index of pastoral subjects. (learn more)

    • Faith in Luther: Martin Luther and the Origin of Anthropocentric Religion

      To mark the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, Paul Hacker's landmark study Faith in Luther: Martin Luther and the Origin of Anthropocentric Religion appears now in a new English edition. Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, in his final memoir in 2016, remembers Paul Hacker as "a great master, someone with an unbelievably broad education, someone who knew the Fathers, knew Luther, and had mastered the whole history of Indian religion from scratch. What he wrote always had something new about it, he always went right to the bottom of things." No doubt one of the "things" he was referring to was Martin Luther's view of faith, which Hacker explores in this text. A unique contribution to ecumenical studies, Faith in Luther engages the primary texts of Luther, assessing them for how they reveal Luther's novel conception of faith and how the development of "reflexive faith" impacted Luther's spirituality and theology—and the world.

    • Evangelizing Catholics: A Mission Manual for the New Evangelization

      You can't keep the faith unless you give it away. That's a fact. To be a Christian is to be an evangelizer. When the Catholic Church calls us to a "New Evangelization," that's simply a reminder to us of what has always been true. The good news is: you can do it - you can evangelize - and Scott Hahn shows you how. In this this very practical "mission manual" Dr. Hahn equips you with:

      • A guide to understanding what the New Evangelization is, and who it's really for
      • A roadmap that leads you to where it all happens (hint: it's closer than you think)
      • A simple, beautiful message to share - in words and actions
      You don't need esoteric knowledge. You don't need to master a new set of skills. Evangelization, for Catholics, is simply friendship raised up to the highest level. Enter a deeper friendship with Christ, and you'll want to share his companionship more and more with a wider circle of friends. (learn more)
