    When it comes to the Catholic Church in our time, perhaps the most frequently asked question is: "Why do I have to confess my sins to a priest?" It is often followed by two others: "Why can't I just go straight to God? Where is the sacrament of confession in the Bible?"

    In Why We Confess, Dr. Brant Pitre gives an eye-opening Bible study on the origins and meaning of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, commonly known as "Confession." In this two-part Bible Study, you will learn about:

    • The Fall of Adam and Eve and the First "Confession"
    • Confession of Sins to a Priest in the Old Testament
    • John's Baptism of Repentance and Confession of Sins
    • The link between Jesus' Miraculous Healings and the Sacrament of Reconciliation
    • The Parable of the Prodigal Son
    • When Jesus Gave the Apostles the Power to Absolve and Retain Sins
    • The Practice of Confession in the Early Church

    Many of us know Catholics who haven't been to Confession in years, even decades. Maybe you are one of them. Whoever you are -- if you've ever wondered about the biblical roots of this sacrament, then Why We Confess is the Bible Study for you.

    As you'll discover, Jesus was (quite literally) dying to institute the sacrament of Confession as an essential part of God's plan for "reconciling the world to himself" (2 Corinthians 5:19).

Why we Confess

As always, Brant Pitte delivers a clear and compelling explanation of the sacrament, going back to its Old Trstament roots, and including early church practices. It’s very instructive even for a cradle Catholic. Great teaching tool for all.

Super!

Catholic Productions always sends orders promptly. Why we Confess is excellent, I will show it between Masses in our Adult Education class. Everything Brandt Pitre does is excellent and I love that he provides an outline.

Why We Confess

In this presentation, Dr. Pitre guides us through the historical relevance of the sacrament of confession. You will be surprised to find out how this sacrament was valid even since Adam's time in the Garden of Eden! This product is a must for anyone who wishes to understand the historical divinity behind one of the most popular sacraments that is attributed with Catholicism. It helped me understand how confession is a strong outward sign of God's loving mercy (to which we are all invited)!

Life after Death, a Bible study on the 7 last things

This study could also be titled: the 7 most important things to know in our earthly life, as what happens when we die, affects how we live today.
Brant Pitre is one of the most outstanding teachers of Scripture.
He takes a complex topic, breaks it up into bite size chucks, articulates it in a way that is comprehensible, referencing Scripture.
He covers so much ground in a limited time frame, never a dull moment.
He has a good sense of humor too.
In this study, using Scripture, he helps us understand the many questions we ask about what happens when we die.
It is worth every cent
Michael is just so helpful in making sure, we get to access the material correctly.

Excellent

This is so good that I bought two more to give as gifts!

Wonderful

This is a beautiful and moving study of the Triduum, my favorite time of the year. It’s also my first presentation from Dr. Bergsma, but it definitely won’t be my last.
