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.
I was hoping for something a little more in depth. However, that is more my fault for not researching as much as I should. On the topic of "How did we get the bible" I think I was looking for something like Dr. Pitre's other talk "The Origin of the Bible". I hope to get that one soon. For what it is it's very good! In fact I plan on using this in the future in small groups because it's very succinct, hits a lot of the main points, and is only 30 minutes a topic. Very happy with this purchase.
I loved this CD set very much. I was sad when I was done with the last CD ! Such a great explanation on so many points of what we believe as Catholics. Dr Pitre is an amazing teacher !
Dr. Pitrie is an excellent speaker. He explains the scriptures in a very understandable way . He engages the audience and one is never bored.
And your service is excellent. Received my order in a timely manner.
