Dr. Scott Hahn is a world-renowned American Catholic theologian and apologist. He joins me on The Dignity of Women to discuss the holy family and their everlasting impact on family life, as well as his own marriage and family life, and the dignity bestowed on women by Jesus Christ!

Dr. Scott Hahn

Dr. Scott Hahn is the Fr. Michael Scanlan Professor of Biblical Theology and the New Evangelization at the Franciscan University of Steubenville, where he has taught since 1990. He is the Founder and President of the St. Paul Center, an apostolate dedicated to teaching Catholics to read Scripture from the heart of the Church. 

Dr. Hahn has been married to his wife Kimberly Hahn for forty years, and together they have six children and eighteen grandchildren. Two of their sons are currently in priestly formation with the Diocese of Steubenville.

He is the author or editor of over forty popular and academic books, including best-selling titles Rome Sweet Home, The Lamb’s Supper, and Hail Holy Queen. A former Presbyterian minister, Dr. Hahn entered the Catholic Church in 1986. Over the last three decades, Dr. Hahn has delivered thousands of popular talks and academic lectures, nationally and internationally, on a wide range of topics related to Scripture, Theology, and the Catholic faith.

He lives with his wife, Kimberly, in Steubenville, Ohio.


Jesus and The Holy Family


Through real-life examples and from the Scriptures, Hahn makes it clear that, no matter what sort of family we come from, we can all find our family in the Church.”

It was a real gift to hear from this biblical scholar on the joys and trials of his own family life. To learn of his courtship with his wife Kimberly, and of the raising of their six children together in the Catholic faith, after stepping down as a Presbyterian minister.

Dr. Hahn shares of the importance of those seemingly insignificant hidden years of Jesus’ life on earth, and how the model of the holy family still guides modern families today.
