 Our Description


Spirit and Life: Interpreting the Bible in Ordinary Time is the newest book by well-known and respected scholar and author Dr. Scott Hahn. Published by Emmaus Road, these nine essays provide fresh insights into important biblical themes. Topics in this volume include:


  • Scripture as God’s symphony
  • Pope Benedict’s Scripture-based teaching on the person and prayer of Jesus
  • The connection of Scripture, liturgy, and the Church
  • The “liturgical sense” of God’s Word
  • The theme of fulfillment in Matthew’s Gospel
  • Church authority within a scriptural context
  • A biblical approach to the “Pentecostal” phenomena
  • A paradox? Christ as Majestic Judge vs. Christ as the Lamb

Hahn shows that Scripture is not a dead letter but rather a great, living gift from God. Indeed, it is “spirit and life” to those who will unwrap and embrace it. Spirit and Life: Interpreting the Bible in Ordinary Time provides the reader with a greater appreciation of the Living Word.

St. Matthew

Feast Day:
Roman Rite Calendar - 09/21

Patron Of: Accounts, Bankers, Bookkeepers, Stockbrokers, Tax Collectors

Son of Alphaeus, he lived at Capenaum on Lake Genesareth. He was a Roman tax collector, a position equated with collaboration with the enemy by those from whom he collected taxes. Jesus' contemporaries were surprised to see the Christ with a traitor, but Jesus explained that he had come "not to call the just, but sinners."

Matthew's Gospel is given pride of place in the canon of the New Testament, and was written to convince Jewish readers that their anticipated Messiah had come in the person of Jesus. He preached among the Jews for 15 years; his audiences may have included the Jewish enclave in Ethiopia, and places in the East.
