Product description
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.

"In "Many Are Called: Rediscovering the Glory of the Priesthood, "Scott speaks profoundly about the priesthood. His insights are compelling. As a former Presbyterian minister, now a Catholic theologian, and as a loving husband and the father of six children, Scott looks upon priests from a matchless vantage point."
- Most Reverend Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of New York
"Hahn does for today's priesthood what color technology did for black-and-white films, bringing the priestly vocation to vibrant life with practical realism and biblical warmth. An inspiration for priests, a vital enrichment for lay people - the spiritual vitality is contagious!"
- Carl A. Anderson, Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus
"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
