"The explanations are absolutely eye opening and give me such a wonderful understanding that I never had before. My appreciation of the gospels has blossomed with these videos. Thank you so much Dr. Brant Pitre."
This CD set is the best treatise I have ever encountered. I have listened to it several times and each time I learned more. Dr. Pitre's teaching style is superb. Very informative, clear and easy to follow.
I bought this Bible study to refresh me for teaching a class on the Catholic Epistles at my parish. I'm a huge Dr. Pitre fan/appreciator. The study was incredibly helpful and informative. It helped me balance the limited time I had available so that I could cover all of the books. This was my first order from Catholic Productions, and Michael quickly helped me with all of my questions before my purchase. I will definitely buy more.
Also, I buy Dr. Pitre's audiobooks, and I think I like this format better. I appreciate the bad jokes and student questions. Plus, it's longer than his typical audiobook!
This talk is remarkable in its practical applications of scripture in family life and deeply personal examples, which add to the efficacy of Dr. Pitre’s delivery. I appreciate his willingness to be vulnerable to benefit his audience. Well done, Dr. Pitre! Prayers for more amazing talks.
I was completely taken off-guard when my sister questioned me about Mary and several other things about why Catholics do certain things. I remembered when Dr. Pitre first announced "Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary" and this immediately came to mind. It clarified for me how to respond in a way that confirmed my faith individually and addressed every question that was listed on her sheet. I can't share how important it is to educate yourself on the roots of our faith and be able to defend it to others. Thank you to Catholic Productions team for an excellent reference to this resource as well.
Loved how all the information here was presented, a very clear explanation that gave me another perspective on this topic. This lecture has definitely helped me clear out many questions while strengthening my faith by presenting biblical and patristic evidence for Marian beliefs.
This program is an absolute must in understanding how the Bible came together in history. It will open your eyes to many things you never knew/learned.
This book does a fantastic job of summarizing what we have learned from the Dead Sea Scrolls. It gives us a better window into the Judaism of the first century and the life of the Essenes. My favorite book by Bergsma yet.
I have a lot of studies from Dr. Pitre, all of them great. But I think this is the best one! This is a very important topic and one that will be fascinating to the curious or the teacher. It goes deeply in the best research on the topic and gives simple but erudite answers. Highly recommended!
As I said in another review, introductions are always difficult to do and find the right amount of info. Dr. Pitre does a wonderful job highlighting the main points of all Gospels and directing us to a deeper study and appreciation for the way the four Gospels give us a complete picture of Our Lord. Highly recommended!
Dr. Pitre does a masterful job in this study of the Gospel of Matthew, my favorite. From the authorship to the messages, going through the messianic fulfillment, this is a study anyone is going to get a lot from. Highly recommended!
Introductions are always difficult. For the author and the listener. Some give you too much in a short time, leaving you without a clear overview. Others, too little. This one gives you a great overview and leaves you wanting more. That's how a great introduction should be: it helps you understand the work and makes you want to study it more. A very knowledgeable intro, but clear and easy for everyone.
Dr. Mary Healy not only has the knowledge, but also the heart and soul of a disciple. In this talk, she opens up the scriptures to show how Saint Paul became an apostle through the the power of the Resurrection of Christ. It's a very edifying talk and a big help in our spiritual growth. A lot said in a simple, short talk. Highly recommended!
First off, I LOVE Dr. Pitre's teachings! This talk of the Jewish Roots of Mary really helped me see her in sacred scripture in a way that I never have before. As a former Protestant, I've never thought Mary was significant like Catholics did and when I converted I struggled with her for years. I needed something to cling to in the Bible but there aren't many references to her......so I thought. Thanks to this teaching I see her everywhere now!!! She is VERY MUCH biblical and I finally feel like I can trust her. I'm happy to report that we are working on our relationship now and I don't think that would have happened if I didn't hear this teaching. Faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God. Hearing our Blessed Mother in scripture has GREATLY increased my faith and trust. Thank you Lord for giving Dr. Pitre this insight!
I had the opportunity to attend this course as an undergraduate when Dr, Pitre taught it at Holy Cross College. As a newly ordained priest I wanted to revisit this course so that I could help my spiritual directees grow in holiness, Dr, Pitre’s teaching style is very succinct and clear. This course is a must have for anyone who wants to grow in the spiritual life. Thank you Dr. Pitre for sharing your beautiful gift of teaching with the Church!
I think this is perhaps the best 1 hour talk that I have heard! As Catholics we have often heard of the Eucharist as the 'source and summit'--this talks gives the reasons why.
If you are looking for insight to understand the rosary better, this CD is for you. I bought this to help me with my rosary understanding. I was glad to know I was doing it correctly, and Dr. Pitre also gave me some insight to build on my understanding and inspire my prayer.
Great explanation of the three stages of spiritual life and how we can grow in our spirituality. This shows us how to understand the spiritual life through the example of Saint Peter. This lesson was so good it made me want more. I recently bought the spiritual theology set. I look forward to hopefully building on what I learned with this lesson.
Dr Pitre talks about the role of grace, faith and works in salvation. Clear and very illuminating teaching that is essential for every Christian.
Excellent video. He brings the story to life allowing us to really understand the teaching.
This is a nice CD set that gives a short yet thorough apologetic on some of the most controversial topics of the Catholic faith. These can help Catholics and non-Catholics alike to understand the beliefs and the reasonings behind them. If your looking for one set that answers several of the most difficult questions of Catholicism this set is great.
Catholic Productions has cured me of the consequences of 50 years of very poor catechesis. Thank you! I highly recommend "studying" with Catholic Productions.
Thank you so much for your beautiful presentations & for this ministry. It has been helping me as a Priest. I highly recommend this study on the bible.
This is a great lesson on the life of Jesus in the week leading to the cross. Dr. Pitre breaks down each day helping you to understand what Jesus was doing each day of his Passover week and what it meant. This is a great bible study to go through during Lent. I highly recommend this.
This CD set appears to have been recorded during a semester where Dr. Pitre taught an Old Testament class. To be able to have these lectures on CD is a blessing. It is like being enrolled in the class. Any time I can experience one of Dr. Pitre’s classes it proves to be worth the money. I would recommend this to anyone looking to do an Old Testament study.
If you do not pray the Rosary every day yet, you will definitely become inspired to meditate on the mysteries of the Holy Rosary after listening to this great talk by Dr Pitre!
I studied this CD on Thusday/Friday before Mass on Saurday. It was a rel test run - I accidently left my Missal in the car! I was busy before Mass with the sacristan duties. As I settled into the pew I breathed a silent prayer turning it all over to God! As I listened to each liturgical word/phrase/sentence Brant Pitre's voice was resonating in my ears! It made for a whole new take on praying and understanding the Mass.
We’d all like to excuse ourselves from the harm we cause with our tongues. Dr. Pitre helps us see the seriousness of a lax attitude about reining in our deadliest weapon!
This book addresses the connection between the Dead Sea Scrolls and Christians. There actually is a lot of substance and impact, and yet no one has addressed these issues like Dr. Bergsma. For those of us who love the historic and theological details of first century Judaism and Christianity, this book is a blockbuster. I don’t often buy books for my 3 sons when I buy and read them myself, but in this case, I made an exception.
In his usual calm and beautifully expressive manner, Dr. Bergsma unwraps for the reader the significance of the desert find of the ancient writings of Qumran. Trod the very ground of that place with him in May. Read the book, read the Bible, gain ever more confidence in Jesus and His church! God bless!
I bought this set a while ago, and loaned it out recently to a Protestant who is mesmerized by it. He is so excited that talking to him about more things Catholic should be much easier. Dr. Pitre is clear. He rebuts all arguments first and then provides proofs. What a brilliant teacher!
I am only now just finishing up with the first 6 CD's which covers the book of James. This is a wonderful talk so far. Dr Pitre shows how James is a Jewish book and not a Book meant for Gentiles as many scholars think. He rather easily corrects the challenges Bart Ehrman and other scholars present regarding the legitimacy of James and the other epistles. Highly recommend this talk!
This IS the New Evangelization. I am getting totally addicted to the amazing richness of Tradition and Scripture. CP is going to turn lives around and enrich many with the Truth and beauty of our faith.
Very few weeks do not go by in which I fail to use Catholic Productions to help prepare my homily. Brant Pitre’s comments on the Mass Readings are vitally interesting, grounded in solid scholarship, accessible and inspirational. The extra resources, available through a range of digital media are a huge blessing to all who are concerned with the New Evangelization.
I’ve known the guys at Catholic Productions for years. They’re the real deal. I don’t know anyone more dedicated to making scintillating, authentic Catholic content available to the world. The depth and breadth of their scriptural offerings is truly amazing…pure gold.
