Scott Hahn began his career in ministry as a Presbyterian minister out to show Catholics the error in their ways, but his biblical and historical detective work led him to the conclusion that the Catholic church was the historical church of the bible.Â In 1986, Dr. Hahn joined the Catholic church and has since come to be known as ‘Luther in Reverse’ due to the large number of protestant pastors and bible scholarsÂ who have followed him on the journey home to Rome.Â The tape of his conversion story ‘A Protestant Minister Becomes Catholic‘ is one of the most circulated and listened to Catholic audios over the past 20 years.Â He is currently a Professor of Theology and Scripture at Franciscan University of Steubenville, and is the founder and director of the Saint Paul Center for Biblical Theology.
In our interview, Scott talks about the legacy of John Paul II, his favorite Saint, and his new book, Reasons to Believe.Â He discusses the need for a pope as well as why Christ had to die for our sins.Â He also touches future books that he is currently working on, Ever Ancient, Ever New, a Catholic Bible Dictionary, and a revision of his doctoral dissertation.
Be sure to listen to Kimberly Hahn talk about Chosen and Cherished.
