Publisher's Description

In Many Are Called, Dr. Scott Hahn, one of the most celebrated scholars and influential Catholic writers living today, enthusiastically encourages Catholics around the world to renew their focus on the sacred role of the Catholic priest. Using his unique ability to present deep spiritual and theological ideas in the language of everyday life, Dr. Hahn examines the biblical and historical roots of the priesthood to explain the centrality of the priest in the life of the Church. He brings reinvigorated attention to the many roles of the priest—provider, mediator, protector, teacher, judge, and more—all of which are united in the priest's place as spiritual father to God's people, and ultimately he shows that it is through the priest, empowered by God, that the continuing presence of Jesus Christ makes itself known to our world.
     Lively, insightful, and engaging, Many Are Called will serve as an inspiration to students and seminarians considering a vocation, to clergy renewing their call, to Catholic readers looking to deepen their faith, and to seekers curious about one of Catholicism's defining but least understood elements. With a foreword by the Most Reverend Timothy M. Dolan, the Archbishop of New York, this is a truly special book, one that speaks to the restless heart of humanity and reveals that our pleas for a spiritual father have already been answered.

Editorial Reviews

"In Many Are Called: Rediscovering the Glory of the Priesthood, Scott speaks profoundly about the priesthood. His insights are compelling. As a former Presbyterian minister, now a Catholic theologian, and as a loving husband and the father of six children, Scott looks upon priests from a matchless vantage point."
– Most Reverend Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of New York
 
"Hahn does for today’s priesthood what color technology did for black-and-white films, bringing the priestly vocation to vibrant life with practical realism and biblical warmth. An inspiration for priests, a vital enrichment for lay people – the spiritual vitality is contagious!"
– Carl A. Anderson, Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus

"No one sees the beauty, the burdens and the greatness of the priesthood more clearly than the lay faithful who find Jesus Christ through the service of their priests. So it makes perfect sense that one of the best books on the priesthood to come along in years has been written by a lay scholar. In Many Are Called Scott Hahn offers a portrait of the priesthood that is vivid, engaging, wonderfully readable and rich in inspiration. This is a marvelous volume for priests and laypeople alike. I highly recommend it."
– Most Reverend Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap, Archbishop of Denver
 
"Scott Hahn brings insight, wisdom, and his own unique pastoral experience to this celebration of the priesthood in the Catholic Church. Give it to a priest you know. But get one for yourself, too."
– George Weigel, Distinguished Senior Fellow, Ethics and Public Policy Center
 
"In this age of information, it's dangerously easy to become so inundated by images and opinions that we lose track of what it means to be a husband or a father, priest or laity. How do we begin over again to rediscover the essence of what it is God has called us to be? Dr. Hahn's concise yet personal examination of ’the glory of the priesthood’ is a timely and trustworthy place to begin."
– Marcus Grodi, TV host, The Journey Home
 
"Many Are Called will deepen the reader's appreciation of the mystery of the priesthood, and provide special insight into the priest as ’another Christ,’ as one who offers sacrifice, and as father." 
– Fr. Peter Cameron, O.P and Editor-in-Chief of Magnificat ®
 
"In Many Are Called, Scott Hahn unveils the grandeur of the holy mystery of holy orders, showing us its deeper meanings and higher calling and reminding us of how precious this
’treasure in earthen vessels’ is to the Church, how precious priests are in God's eyes. I am convinced that this powerful scriptural meditation on the nature, meaning, and role of the priesthood will spiritually enrich anyone who reads it with a prayerful heart."
– Patrick Madrid, Director of the Envoy Institute of Belmont Abbey College, author of Does the Bible Really Say That? and Search and Rescue
 
"Responding to God’s call to serve him as a priest can be a challenge but, at the same time, a wonderful blessing. Professor Scott Hahn helps his readers to recognize the unique ministry of the priest as he manifests the kingdom of God through his ordination to teach and administer the sacraments, especially the Eucharist, and to be the spiritual leader for the portion of God’s flock entrusted to his care. Particularly in this Year for Priests, this book will not only encourage priests to reflect all over again on the joy of their vocation, but also guide the lay faithful to a better understanding of the significance of the great gift that is priesthood.  My hope is that Many Are Called might inspire all of us once again to thank God for the unique gift that is the priesthood."
– Most Reverend Donald W. Wuerl, S.T.D., Archbishop of Washinton, D.C.
 
"At a time when the priesthood is surrounded by turmoil - Clarity!"
– Matthew Kelly, New York Times bestselling author of Rediscovering Catholicism and The Rhythm of Life
