Dr. Scott Hahn is one of the best-known theologians, professors, and Christian apologists in the Western world. He has authored dozens of books including Rome Sweet Home, which recounts his conversion, and The Lamb’s Supper, his bestselling guide to the Mass.

Dr. Hahn is also one of today’s premier biblical scholars. He founded and is currently the President of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology, a Christian research center committed to the promotion of biblical literacy among the Catholic laity and clergy.

In addition to teaching at the Franciscan University of Steubenville, earlier this year, Cardinal Francis George appointed Dr. Hahn to the newly established McEssy Distinguished Visiting Professorship in Biblical Theology at Mundelein Seminary.
