Joy To The World by Scott Hahn

Joy To The World

Dr. Scott Hahn is a Catholic scholar and teacher, and I’ve greatly enjoyed some of his other books.  Joy to the World is a closer look at Jesus’s birth – both in terms of what is known historically and how His coming was seen in theological terms.

As I was reading Joy to the World, I couldn’t help but be reminded of Bill O’Reilly’s Killing Jesus.  Dr. Scott Hahn’s love of history and the importance of the birth of Christ shone through in this book.  But Hahn’s expertise takes the story in a direction O’Reilly didn’t – and that is the greater significance.  Most people, even good practicing Christians, don’t have the wealth of theological and historical knowledge that Dr. Scott Hahn does.  Reading Joy to the World should be a must for everyone, regardless of their faith.  At the very least, it will assist in understanding the huge significance of Jesus’s birth and the rise of Christianity as a result.  But ultimately, it should deepen your faith.
