ANGELS AND SAINTS
A Biblical Gide to Friendship with God's Holy Ones
By Scott Hahn
Hardcover - 203 pp
Angels and Saints. Catholics tend to think of them as different from the rest of us. Theyre 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 Catholic book, Scott Hahn dispels the false notions and urban legends. Drawing deeply from Scripture, he shows that the hosts of Heaven surround the earthly Church as a "great cloud of witnesses." 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 thats fresh and new. The Saints are spiritual giants but with flesh-and-blood reality. They have strong, holy ambitionsand 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.
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. Add this power-house Catholic book to your cart or wish list above.
