Overview
One of the century's most powerful Catholic apologists reflects upon God's unchanging, covenant love. The eloquent teachings of Scott Hahn have moved thousands of Catholic Christians to a more vital expression of their faith. In "A Father Who Keeps His Promises," the popular Catholic apologist explores the "covenant love" God reveals to us through the Scriptures, and explains how God patiently reaches out to us--despite our faults and shortcomings--to restore us into relationship with his divine Family. Join Hahn as he follows the high adventure of God's plan for the ages, beginning with Adam and Eve and continuing down through the generations to the coming of Christ and the birth of the Church. You'll discover how the patient love of the Father revealed in the Bible is the same persistent love he has for you.

RCIA  Nov 10, 2006
Very helpful for teaching the RCIA class on Covenants and Salvation History for the People of God. The puns in the chapter titles are humorous, but Scott's version of the Bible stories had me laughing out loud. The section on Abraham and Sarah was especially funny, and Scott makes the story very relevant and understandable for today.
 
The Bible in a Book  Sep 28, 2006
As a parish director of adult faith formation, this is a book that I am continually placing orders for and promoting among my adult students in the parish. Why? Because this text is what I like to call "The Bible in a book." Scott Hahn, Ph.D. has taken years of his personal research and blended it with his unique writing style, which is accessible to the average layperson - not reserved for the Biblical scholar. The result is a text that summarizes Salvation History in 290 pages from an authentically Catholic, orthodox perspective.

Having read this text 4 times from front to back and sections many more times over, this is one of my all time favorite "Catholic" books. Each time I pick it up, it is as if I haven't read it before.. because it is so densely packed with great information. This text was my first real introduction to the Bible as an undergraduate student studying business. It lead me to further study and eventually to an M.A. in Theology, studying under Dr. Hahn himself at the Franciscan University of Steubenville.

One of the gems of this book is the compilation of endnotes in the back of the book, backed with references to Biblical scholarship. If these endnotes were sold as a separate book for the same price as the book itself, I would spend the money on them - they're that great. They really help the reader understand where Dr. Hahn gets concepts such as the firstborn sons of Israel holding a priestly office (before Exodus 32), Melchizedek's identification as "Shem" who outlived Abraham by 35 years, how the plagues wrought upon Egypt through Moses were judgements against each of Egypt's golds (e.g. the Nile, Frogs, Bulls, Rams), how the sacrifices of the Mosaic Law were physical renunciations of Egyptian idolatry (Egyptians worshipped those animals Israel was commanded to sacrifice), and the nature of Deuteronomy as a compilation of concessionary, lesser laws that permitted sins such as divorce/remarriage, usury, and the sort of warfare Israel perpetrated against the Canaanites.

Get this book.. it is worth well more than the few dollars this site charges for it!
 
A great book for beginners  Mar 20, 2006
This was my fist book about scripture I have ever read. It was very enjoyable. It help me with the basics. It was very helpful to learn about the different covenants.
 
A covenantal stroll through (salvation) history  Feb 27, 2006
Dr. Hahn has always been my favorite theologian. He writes in a way that I can "get" the first time though. This particular volume is an arrow-straight shot through the first six covenants of salvation history. Despite the fact that I have been reading loads of books on this topic, this easy-to-read book STILL has new insights to give me! My favorite is the correlation between the animals that the Egyptians (and many Israelites) worshipped during the Israelites' 400-year stay there and the animals both destroyed by plagues and subsequently ritually sacrificed on Israelite altars. God tries hard to sever the worhsip link between those gods (represented by the animals) and His people. Now all those years of animal sacrifices make sense AND why it was no longer necessary in the new Covenant in Jesus' time. It was a particular discipline for a particular time. Neat!

I recommend this book highly!
 
brilliant  Oct 16, 2005
The way Bible study is presented in a lot of religion classes seems almost deliberately designed to make students eyes glaze over from boredom or to create fear that they'll never get it.

Scott Hahn, is as always, a breath of fresh air. In A Father Who Keeps His Promises, Dr. Hahn, shows in a cheerful and humorous way how God has throughtout salvation history been working toward bringing His family home. A covenant was made first with one couple then evenutually with a tribe and finally through the sacrifcie of Jesus Christ with the whole world. Dr. Hahn shows that the bible isn't just a collection of lessons. It is all one story about God's love for his children. After reading this book I've committed myself to increasing my scripture reading. This is a brilliant work that an ordinary person in the back pew can understand, enjoy and learn from.
