Dr. Scott Hahn -- (3 CDs)
Scott Hahn believes that families, nations and even the Church are held together by the power of personal commitments. He declares that when we really want to change our lives we mark the transition by the taking of an oath. That’s what people do on their wedding day, on the day they become citizens, on the day they enter the military, or on the day they assume public office. But, he declares, the most powerful oaths of all are those that mark the Christian Sacraments.
Christ endowed his sacraments with unprecedented and unparalleled power . . . the power to change lives, save souls, and share God’s very life. The sacraments are the ordinary means by which God directs the course of each human life and all of world history.
In Swear to God: The Promise and Power of the Sacraments, Dr. Scott Hahn explores the richness of Christ’s sacraments . . . their doctrine, history, symbols, and rituals. Drawing upon the Bible and the Church’s tradition, he shows how God’s covenants with Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and David became the driving forces in history. When Jesus came to fulfill all these covenants, He established a new covenant, with greater power than ever before. Joined to Christ by baptism, we can already share in the eternal life of the Trinity, a life we hope to know fully in heaven. But heaven is with us, even now, in the sacraments.
