    Is Catholicism true? Or is it just made up? How can I explain the faith to my family or friends who no longer believe?

    In this mind-blowing series, Dr. Brant Pitre takes up the most commonly asked questions about the Catholic faith and provides clear and compelling biblical answers. He begins at the beginning--with the existence of God--and walks you step-by-step through the foundations of the faith.  Along the way, Dr. Pitre explains:

    Does God Exist? How can we know it?
    Is Jesus God? Did Jesus claim to be God? And why should we believe him?
    Peter and the Papacy?  Did Jesus establish the Catholic Church? What is the historical evidence?
    How Did We Get the Bible?  From where did the Bible come? Who decided which books got in and which didn't?
    Is the Eucharist Jesus’ Real Presence? What does the Bible teach about Jesus' Real Presence in the Eucharist?
    Why Confess to a Priest? Did Jesus arrange for us to confess our sins to a priest of the new covenant?
    Do Catholics Worship Mary? What does the Bible teach about her?
    Purgatory and Prayers for the Dead? Where is Purgatory in the Bible? Why do Catholics pray for the dead?

    If you've ever been asked any of these questions but weren't quite sure how to answer -- or if you know someone who has left the Church and no longer believes, then buckle up: this Bible study is for you. In it, you'll discover how just reasonable, biblical, and beautiful the Catholic faith really is.

Great series.

I am so pleased with this series of lectures and the accompanying notes. Not just for enquirers and RCIA participants, but for cradle Catholics who have grown up with questions and misconceptions they didn’t question. Thank you, Dr Petre!

A Class Act!!!

I have been ordering books, Bible studies, mass explanations, and e-videos from Catholic Productions for about 2 years now. Everything I have ordered from this company has been exceptionally well done! I highly recommend them to anyone wanting to learn more about our faith. I converted about 35 years ago but didn't fall in love with the Catholic Church until I stumbled across Catholic Productions. They produce the highest quality of work and present some of the best Catholic speakers I have ever seen.

A review of Why We Believe: Answering Common Questions about the Catholic Faith by Dr Brant Pitre

As expected, Dr Brant Pitre does not disappoint in this engaging explanation of our Catholic faith. My wife and I listened to it while on a road trip. Dr Pitre's explanations, context and supporting scriptures are great. I wish all Catholics could listen to it.

Pitre never disappoints. His knowledge is unsurpassed by anyone

Insightful Course.

Good insights that challenged my view of life after death in Catholic teaching.

Dr. Pitre’s Best Book Yet

The content was clear, organized and so well done! You can read it all in one sitting from cover to cover OR in sections! I am so grateful for Dr. Pitre. A must read!

Brant Pitre for the win

I needed background on the development of the canon of Scripture as part of a lecture. Honestly, Brant Pitre is my current theology crush. With so much knowledge to share and a great sense of humor, he wins the day again for me.

Enthusiastically viewed

I bought this to show after Wednesday’s Mass in our parish hall to a group of about 15 seniors. We did one dvd a week, I printed out the sections of the outline for that disc for each attendee. I have a permanent audience now and have purchased several more that have been eagerly received. We are learning so much of the ancient origins of our faith that until this point were mostly in the shadows. Dr Pitri validates our long held beliefs with his biblical background of the role St Jiseph played in the lives of Jesus and Mary.
