"Dr. Scott Hahn has done it again: He has given us a crisp, clear, and compelling look at the very essence of Catholic life, the sacraments."
-Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of New York
The most solemn, majestic, and beautiful gifts that Jesus Christ gave to the world are His sacraments. He endowed them with unprecedented and unparalleled power...power to change lives, save souls, and share God's very life. The sacraments are the ordinary means by which God directs the course of each human life and all of world history.
In Swear to God, Dr. Scott Hahn explores the richness of Christ's sacraments...their doctrine, history, symbols, and rituals. Drawing upon the Bible and the Church's tradition, he shows how God's covenants...with Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and David...became the driving forces in history. When Jesus came to fulfill all these covenants, He established a new covenant, with greater power than ever before. Christians are God's children now. Joined to Christ by baptism, we can already share in the eternal life of the Trinity, a life we hope to know fully in heaven. But heaven is with us, even now, in the sacraments.
