Quotes & Awards

  • “Written in the easy style that has opened the depths of Catholic theology to scores of laypeople, Hahn shares how he once regarded sacraments as ‘boring,’ but reconsidered that view…Catholics in search of a fresh look at their faith will find Hahn’s enthusiam inviting.” Publishers Weekly
  • “This book, easy to read but profound in its implications, draws on the Bible, on Catholic teaching, patristic wisdom, and rabbinical learning to explain the meaning and importance of sacraments. What the author tells of his own discovery and experience of sacramental life is illuminating and heartwarming. It will help Catholics grasp better the wonder and necessity in God’s plan of salvation and allow other Christians to see their significance for the following of Christ.”

    Francis Cardinal George, OMI, Archbishop of Chicago

  • “As one who has lived with a lifelong realistic understanding of the sacraments, especially of the Holy Eucharist, I found Scott Hahn’s journey from Calvin’s devout but symbolic understanding to the traditional realism of the Church Fathers most enlightening. This book will be a big help to Catholics confronted by careless and inaccurate teaching about the sacraments. It will also aid Protestants, who have often lost even the sacramental piety of the Reformation and who are beginning to rediscover the sacraments instituted by Christ.”

    Father Benedict J. Groeschel, CFR, author of In the Presence of Our Lord

  • “Dr. Hahn has done it once again: he has given us a crip, clear, and compelling look at the very essence of Catholic life, the sacraments. Simply put, Scott believes the sacraments really do work. And he believes that the sacraments are God’s work for us, not our work for God.”

    Most Reverend Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of Milwaukee

  • “In Swear to God, Dr. Scott Hahn provides his readers with a fresh, enthusiastic introduction to the theology of the Sacraments. His readers will be rewarded not only with clear theological information but also with authentically Catholic inspiration. His pen continues to be a blessing for all who seek a deeper understanding of what the Lord has revealed.”

    Edward Cardinal Egan, Archbishop of New York
