At a talk given in the Archdiocese of Denver, Dr. Scott Hahn of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology detailed his new book "Consuming the Word," while highlighting the importance of the Year of Faith.
The Franciscan University professor said he had already been working on the book's release as a follow up to bestsellers, "The Lamb's Supper" and "Letter and Spirit" before then-Pope Benedict XVI announced the Year of Faith for the Church.
"It was already in the works," Hahn told CNA Sept. 4, "it was a happy and holy coincidence though."
The conclusion to Year of Faith, Hahn explained during his talk, will mark the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council, an event that did not "revolutionize" the faith, but rather "renewed it."
