By Staff     5/20/2019

Scott Hahn, the bestselling author of over 40 titles, including  The Lamb’s Supper  and The Fourth Cup, returns to the Freed Theater on the campus of Christ Cathedral on June 5 as part of the Bishop’s Lecture Series. He will be discussing his latest book, The First Society: The Sacrament of Matrimony and the Restoration of the Social Order. 

Hahn holds the Fr. Michael Scanlan Chair of Biblical Theology and New Evangelization at the Franciscan University of Steubenville, where he has taught since 1990. As founder and president of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology, he is editor-in-chief of Emmaus Road Publishing. He also serves as the McEssy Distinguished Visiting Professor of Biblical Theology at Mundelein Seminary. 

In The First Society: The Sacrament of Matrimony and the Restoration of the Social Order, Scott Hahn makes the startling claim that our society’s ills and its cures are rooted in whether we reject or accept the divine graces made available through the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony. 

The evening begins with a reception at 6 p.m., followed by a panel discussion and book signing. For more information: CHRISTCATHEDRALSCOTTHAHNTALK.EVENTBRITE.COM
