    Changing the World with Words

    God's words have power, but do the words of men? God spoke and the world came to be. He creates man in his image and likeness. What happens when men speak on behalf of God? In this talk, Dr. Bergsma examines the power of the Word of God to create reality, and the authority of priests, as divine image bearers, to create reality through the words of God in the sacraments. Priests act as sons of God to change reality for God's people.

    Making Disciples in the Image of Christ

    Jesus had a mission to convert the world. How did he go about it? Massive gatherings in stadiums? Literature distributions? Speaking tours? We know he did none of these things, but instead focused on raising up a small group of disciples to perpetuate his ministry. In this talk, Dr. Bergsma describes Jesus' own methods of evangelism and "church growth," and the need for priests and other leaders to imitate the Master in their own ministries.

Very insightful

It can be even better if the tone can be less excited so that non native speakers can catch easier.

Dr Pitre is amazing. The way he teaches makes it so easy to understand. He gives me answers to questions I never thought to ask. Without hesitation I will be buying more Bible studies that he has done.

Fantastic

This is a great talk on what Catholics believe about Mary. The book, Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary is more detailed. I highly recommend both. As usual, Dr. Pitre does a great job!

The Jewish Roots of Holy Week

I liked “The Jewish Roots of Holy Week :The Seven Last Days of Jesus” very much and appreciate that you divided it into chapters so that I can use it during Lent next year. Your prices are so reasonable too! Thank you!

Absolutely Fabulous

Excellent lecture with terrific information. Always enjoy Dr Bergsma's teaching and style.

Great and fantastic studies!
