Stunned by Scripture: How the Bible Made Me Catholic (Signed by Dr. Bergsma)

• What led Dr. John Bergsma to become Catholic?
• What role did Scripture play in his conversion?
• How did he explain his conversion to his family?

CP 294

• What led Dr. John Bergsma to become Catholic?
• What role did Scripture play in his conversion?
• How did he explain his conversion to his family?

  • The Pope, devotion to Mary, confession … just where are these topics in the Bible? Why does the Catholic Church seem to focus on so many things that aren’t Scriptural?

    Or so thought former Protestant pastor John Bergsma.

    Stunned by Scripture: How the Bible Made Me Catholic is an engaging examination of the things Dr. Bergsma once considered obstacles to ever becoming Catholic himself. Over an eighteen-month spiritual journey, Bergsma was stunned again and again by the biblical support he found for even the stickiest teachings of the Catholic Church.

    Weaving his personal story into clear explanations of Catholic teachings as found in Scripture, Dr. Bergsma explores seven key Catholic doctrines, including:

    • The Pope
    • Devotion to Mary
    • Confession
    • The Eucharist
    • The priesthood
    • Belief in the Bible alone
    • Salvation by faith alone theologies

    Stunned by Scripture will help Catholics understand, defend, and explain the biblical basis for the Faith and show them how the Bible solidly supports even the most frequently misunderstood Catholic teachings.

Stunned by Scripture

Excited to begin learning!

Greg Daniels
Excellent Book!!

Dr John Bergsma, writes with such clarity! This tells the story of his thought processes and experiences which lead him to the Catholic Church! He uses simple, easy to understand language to convey such deep truths from the Scriptures. I would recommend this book to any Christian and Catholic, as it articulates the differences interpreting the Scriptures between Protestants and Catholics! Highly recommended!!

A simple story of truth that helps others see rather than deny the Catholic faith.

Dr. Bergsma story is similar to the journey I started twenty years ago into the Catholic Church, which at the time, I didn’t even know I was on a journey, especially not one to the Catholic Church. I thought I would just be able to help those I knew to see the truth of what the Bible actually said by knowing more of what was written by the Early Fathers. After looking back, a Dr. Bergsma’s book would’ve gone a long way in helping me bring a few others to Mass with me. A brilliant format that is not intimidating, over-reaching or in any way tries to discredit the faith I left, especially the people I worshiped with or at least those of us who didn’t even know the difference between liturgical worship and what we called worship. Dr. Bergsma, you are one of the four horsemen in my household, Dr. Pitre, Dr. Hahn, Dr. Cavadini and yourself. Dr. Bergsma thank you for giving me a tool that I have been able to share with my old Northern Dutch Reformists that I used to fellowship with, in telling the truth of the Catholic Church, a simple truth that helps them see rather than deny.

Loved it

I learn so much from Dr Pitre in general. I own a few of his books & have listened to his talks on YouTube & I appreciate the way he teaches. I decided to purchase this study (in addition to another one for Advent, with Mary)seeing as we're approaching Advent 2021 & I'm so glad I did. It didn't disappoint. I'm back on here purchasing 4 more! I appreciate his style & method of explaining things.

Nothing Dead here. Interesting and insightful here.

I thought the CD was great. It offered me much to think about and ponder about our Lord while he was on this earth.

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Advent

Brilliant, challenging, comprehensive, uplifting!

Case for Jesus

This was the first book I bought and read of Dr. Pitre’s. I found it really accessible. It was easy to follow and well written. This introduction to Dr. Pitre and his skill at communicating his knowledge in a way that is easy to follow has led me to continue to study with more of his works.

Jesus and the End Times

With all the events happening in the world today, I enjoyed and received peace of mind hearing the Catholic view of the end times.
