In my last post I told you about study Bibles, today I want to tell you about a couple of great new books from one of the best Catholic Bible scholars in the world, Scott Hahn. If your gift recipient likes Dr. Hahn, one of these would really fit the bill. First is the Catholic Bible Dictionary. This is a tremendous resource that will really help the owner delve deeply into the Bible. It’s a dictionary, so you get the idea, but a fantastic one they will use constantly.
Next is Signs of Life: 40 Catholic Customs and Their Biblical Roots. If you ever wanted to know where we get the Sign of the Cross, or the Sacraments, or why we pray with the saints, or have sacred images or relics, this book is for you – or in this case your giftee. This book really explores why we Catholics do what we do. It would be welcome in any faithful Catholic’s library.
