Publisher's Summary

As Catholics, we believe in the resurrection of the body. We profess it in our creed. We're taught that to bury and pray for the dead are corporal and spiritual works of mercy. We honor the dead in our Liturgy through the rite of Christian burial. We do all of this, and more, because when Jesus Christ took on flesh for the salvation of our souls he also bestowed great dignity on our bodies.

In Hope to Die: The Christian Meaning of Death and the Resurrection of the Body, Scott Hahn explores the significance of death and burial from a Catholic perspective. The promise of the bodily resurrection brings into focus the need for the dignified care of our bodies at the hour of death. Unpacking both scripture and Catholic teaching, Hope to Die reminds us that we are destined for glorification on the last day.

Our bodies have been made by a god who loves us. Even in death, those bodies point to the mystery of our salvation.

More than ever, we need hope today

I wish this book actually came out before the pandemic. One thing that is very evident right now is that we have lost any sense of hope in our lives. Additionally our fear of death dominates our thinking today. Dr Hahn’s ability to elevate dying in a state of grace to a hopeful event is a core element of what’s missing in order to live a joyful life. Run on sentence alert.... Reading this book can put us all back on a path to a deeper understanding of aligning our suffering and death to Christ’s, leading joy in His and our resurrection.
