Heaven in Room 107: Dr. Scott Hahn Talks Holiness with Matt Lozano


"We want to be saints, not celebrities!"

In this meaty episode, we hear from popular author and theologian Dr. Scott
Hahn, founder and president of the Saint Paul Center for Biblical Theology.
Dr. Hahn chronicles his personal understanding of holiness beginning with his
earliest experiences as a juvenile delinquent and how he discovered
scripture and encountered Christ on a Young Life retreat. Hear then how Dr.
Hahn’s presence at Dr. R.C. Sproul’s Bible studies shaped his approach
towards God.

Holiness became a topic of primary interest culminating in Dr. Hahn’s book,
Holy is His Name: The Transforming Power of God’s Holiness in Scripture
which represents years of research and biblical study, but also draws one to
the cross. “We are free to be holy, and we are only truly fully holy when we
are freed,” he states.

Learn what Dr. Hahn considers to be the job description of a theologian and
hear his comparison between holiness and righteousness.

This deep discussion mentions Greek words like “caritas agape” and
individuals like Augustine, Aquinas, King Uzziah, and the prophet Isaiah.

You’ll find out why Dr. Hahn considers his book, Holy is His Name, and Matt’s
book, Free to Be Holy a “one-two combination.”

The episode concludes with Dr. Hahn sharing what he believes to be a slice
of Heaven on Earth.
