Interview With Dr. Scott Hahn
Dr. Scott Hahn is on the program to talk about his new book. We discuss the origins of the book, the importance of the body in life and death, the vital part the Eucharist plays in our body as well as our faith, and how early Christian’s treated the body and how that changed western civilization. The book is fascinating and packed with history from the early church, the church fathers, and scripture. I can’t recommend it enough.
The work of Dr. Hahn was a major factor in my conversion while I was in Seminary. It was pleasure speaking with him.

About the Book (From Amazon description):
As Catholics, we believe in the resurrection of the body. We profess it in our creed. We’re taught that to bury and pray for the dead are corporal and spiritual works of mercy. We honor the dead in our Liturgy through the Rite of Christian burial. We do all of this, and more, because when Jesus Christ took on flesh for the salvation of our souls he also bestowed great dignity on our bodies.
In Hope to Die: The Christian Meaning of Death and the Resurrection of the Body, Scott Hahn explores the significance of death and burial from a Catholic perspective. The promise of the bodily resurrection brings into focus the need for the dignified care of our bodies at the hour of death. Unpacking both Scripture and Catholic teaching, Hope to Die reminds us that we are destined for glorification on the last day. Our bodies have been made by a God who loves us. Even in death, those bodies point to the mystery of our salvation.
