The extraordinary vision and panache of Scott Hahn's books have made Catholic theology thrilling and accessible for millions of readers inside and far beyond the boundaries of the Church. In First Comes Love, he not only reflects on the nitty-gritty of life, love, relationships, marriage and family but shows how the family draws us into the mystery of God. In recent years we have seen the family, as an institution, in decline, often portrayed as a place of repression and fear rather than of openness and love. Most marriages end, bitterly, in divorce. Yet, argues Hahn, our only hope of regaining happiness and wholeness lies not in attacking the family but in a recovery of our understanding of the family as the heart of God's plan for creation. Theology and biblical interpretation take on the excitement of an adventure story is this irresistible and often moving reflection on love, the family, the Trinity, and the Church. This new edition includes a new chapter by the author.

Book Description DLT. Soft cover. Condition: New. No Jacket. Scott Hahn, in First Comes Love, uses the idea of family to explain Catholic thought about the Trinity. Hahn believes that the relations among the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are a model for the relations among every nuclear unit composed of father, mother, and child. And he believes that the family of the Church helps people emulate the Trinitarian family and can heal them when they fall short of such holiness. Hahn moves easily from personal anecdote to Scriptural analysis, making his case that Jesus understood all of humanity as part of one family when he called his followers brothers, sisters, mothers, and fathers. First Comes Love makes the salutary point that neither romance nor parenthood alone can give us a sufficient sense of belonging. "God built us all to live in a much larger family, to experience a much larger love . a love that extends infinitely." 'This is a remarkable book' Aidan Nichols OP. book. Seller Inventory # B0110
