Many Are Called: Rediscovering the Glory of the Priesthood
In Many Are Called, Dr. Scott Hahn, one of the most celebrated scholars and influential Catholic writers living today, enthusiastically encourages Catholics around the world to renew their focus on the sacred role of the Catholic priest. Using his unique ability to present deep spiritual and theological ideas in the language of everyday life, Dr. Hahn examines the biblical and historical roots of the priesthood to explain the centrality of the priest in the life of the Church. He brings reinvigorated attention to the many roles of the priest—provider, mediator, protector, teacher, judge, and more—all of which are united in the priest's place as spiritual father to God's people, and ultimately he shows that it is through the priest, empowered by God, that the continuing presence of Jesus Christ makes itself known to our world. Lively, insightful, and engaging, Many Are Called will serve as an inspiration to students and seminarians considering a vocation, to clergy renewing their call, to Catholic readers looking to deepen their faith, and to seekers curious about one of Catholicism's defining but least understood elements. With a foreword by the Most Reverend Timothy M. Dolan, the Archbishop of New York, this is a truly special book, one that speaks to the restless heart of humanity and reveals that our pleas for a spiritual father have already been answered.read more
Reviews forMany Are Called: Rediscovering the Glory of the Priesthood
Dr. Scott Hahn is a celebrated author on the biblical roots of Catholicism. In MANY ARE CALLED, he presents a re-fresh look at the Priestly ministry dating from the Old Testament and drawing actions from today. This book is a good read not only for priests in need of a recollection into their divine office but also for the lay who are the support of those in Holy Orders. This book presents a new perspective on the ministry that views priesthood from the eyes of a lay person. He points out that the vocation of priests are not limited with the sacraments but a fundamental element of society's daily race.read more
