Today, June 11, marks the official conclusion of the Jubilee Year of the Priest. This occasion also marks the release of a brand new book on the Catholic priesthood by beloved Catholic author Dr. Scott Hahn.
“No one sees the beauty, the burdens and the greatness of the priesthood more clearly than the lay faithful who find Jesus Christ through the service of their priests. So it makes perfect sense that one of the best books on the priesthood to come along in years has been written by a lay scholar. In Many Are Called Scott Hahn offers a portrait of the priesthood that is vivid, engaging, wonderfully readable and rich in inspiration. This is a marvelous volume for priests and laypeople alike. I highly recommend it.”
– Most Reverend Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap, Archbishop of Denver
“Scott Hahn brings insight, wisdom, and his own unique pastoral experience to this celebration of the priesthood in the Catholic Church. Give it to a priest you know. But get one for yourself, too.” – George Weigel, Distinguished Senior Fellow, Ethics and Public Policy Center
“At a time when the priesthood is surrounded by turmoil – Clarity!” – Matthew Kelly, New York Times bestselling Catholic author
