COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (May 26, 2014) - To celebrate the release of Dr. Scott Hahn's newest book, Angels and Saints, we're hitting the road, ahem web, for a virtual book tour to 12 of the blogosphere's finest Catholic blogs!

In Angels and Saints, Dr. Hahn sets out to bring Catholics closer to their faith through a considerate examination of two of Catholicism's most sacred traditions. The result is a rich and thoughtful book that shows how the angels and saints are with us in everyday life.

Dr. Hahn writes that his process for choosing saints for the book was personal, "I notice that my chosen saints tend to be those with whom I have something in common. Most are teachers, scholars, and writers."

In a similar way, we've asked the bloggers on this tour to write about one of the saints from the book that is particularly significant to him/her.

On each day of the Angels and Saints Blog Tour (May 27 to June 7) one of 12 participating bloggers will post a reflection on the saint of his/her choosing.

We are grateful to all of the incredible bloggers who will be hosting stops on the tour. Please support them by visiting their sites and reading their reflections. Additionally, we will be giving away copies of Angels and Saints at many of the stops along the way. Be sure to check in daily for your chance to win!

Angels and saints. Catholics tend to think of them as different from the rest of us. They're cast in plaster or simpering on a holy card, performing miracles with superhero strength, or playing a harp in highest heaven.

Yet they are very near to us in every way. In this lively book, Scott Hahn dispels the false notions and urban legends people use to keep the saints at a safe distance. The truth is that Jesus Christ has united heaven and earth in a close communion. Drawing deeply from Scripture, Dr. Hahn shows that the hosts of heaven surround the earthly Church as a "great cloud of witnesses." The martyrs cry out from heaven's altar begging for justice on the earth. The prayers of the saints and angels rise to God, in the Book of Revelation, like the sweet aroma of incense.

Dr. Scott Hahn holds the Fr. Michael Scanlan Chair of Biblical Theology and the New Evangelization at Franciscan University of Steubenville, where he has taught since 1990, and he is the founder and president of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology. In 2005, he was appointed as the Pope Benedict XVI Chair of Biblical Theology and Liturgical Proclamation at St. Vincent Seminary in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. In 2014, he was appointed as the first McEssy Distinguished Visiting Professor of Biblical Theology at Mundelein Seminary of the University of Saint Mary of the Lake. Dr. Hahn is also the bestselling author of numerous books, including The Lamb's Supper, Reasons to Believe, and Rome Sweet Home (coauthored with his wife, Kimberly), and is editor of the Ignatius Catholic Study Bible and Letter & Spirit: A Journal of Catholic Biblical Theology. Some of his most recent books are Many Are Called, Consuming the Word, The Catholic Bible Dictionary, and Signs of Life. He lives in Steubenville, Ohio.
