Dr Scott Hahn
Catholics tend to think of angels and saints as different from the rest of us. Yet they are very near to us in every way. In this lively book, Scott Hahn dispels the false notions and urban legends people use to keep the saints at a safe distance. Drawing deeply from Scripture, he shows that the hosts of heaven surround the earthly Church as a "great cloud of witnesses." The martyrs cry out from heaven’s altar begging for justice on the earth. The prayers of the saints and angels rise to God, in the Book of Revelation, like the sweet aroma of incense. The saints are spiritual giants but with flesh-and-blood reality. They have strong, holy ambitions - and powerful temptations and opposition that must be overcome. Their stories are amazing and yet familiar enough to motivate us to live more beautiful lives.
