Internationally acclaimed Scripture scholar and former Protestant minister Dr. Scott Hahn will deliver a public lecture entitled The Gospel According to St. Paul at Christendom College on Monday, September 29, at 6:30 pm.
Dr. Hahn, born in 1957, has been married to Kimberly since 1979, and has six children. An exceptionally popular speaker and teacher, Hahn has delivered numerous talks nationally and internationally on a wide variety of topics related to Scripture and the Catholic faith. Over 500 of these talks have been produced on audio and videotapes by St. Joseph Communications. These tapes have been effective in helping thousands of Protestants and fallen away Catholics to (re)embrace the Catholic faith.
