How did Scott Hahn become the central Biblical scholar of American Catholicism? Aren't there any other orthodox biblical scholars out there? Is he the lone representative of biblical scholarship? It seems to me that to rely solely on one person to explain the bible and from whom to constantly quote is dangerous.

No, Dr. Scott Hahn is not the main one. He gets individual recognition for being an enthusiastic scholarly convert. The scholars who created the Navarre Bible, for example are not individually known. The media EWTN TV have made Dr. Hahn well known. They relish the fact that a Presbyterian Minister converted to Catholicism. It is always flattering to have a minister convert to one's church. However, the church is not relying on him alone, or even primarily, but rather on the Bishops and scholars of other publications like the Navarre Bible.

He is just a very good representative for the Church. Lay Person. Brilliant. Wonderful family man. Devoted Bible Scholar. His books are very very digestable for the non-scholar, yet if you listen to him speak you know he has so much knowledge it is scary. Yet he presents it with SO much humility for somebody who has received such acclaim, he is a perfect example for us all. So those are just a few things.
