    One of the most commonly asked questions about the Catholic faith is “Why do I have to confess my sins to a priest? Why can’t I just confess them directly to God?”

    In this important new Bible study, Dr. Brant Pitre provides solid, biblical answers to this common objection. Using the teachings of Sacred Scripture in both the Old and New Testaments, Dr. Pitre unveils the biblical roots of the Catholic sacrament of reconciliation. In this presentation, you will learn about:


    • The Old Testament Practice of Confession
    • The Biblical Difference between Mortal Sin and Venial Sin
    • When Jesus gave the Apostles the Power to Forgive Sins
    • Why Confession goes back to Jesus Himself
    • The Meaning of St. James’ Words: “Confess Your Sins to One Another”
    • Pope Francis’ Encouraging Words about Confession


    If you’ve ever wondered about the difference between mortal and venial sin; or if you’ve have a family member or friend who hasn’t been to confession in years and you’d like to encourage them; or if you yourself have struggled with whether or not to receive the sacrament of reconciliation, then this Bible study is for you.

    Along the way, you’ll get encouragement from Pope Francis himself, who says to us all: “Be courageous, Go to confession!”

Very Illuminating

I loved this talk. It gave a great introduction into the Song of Solomon, and how it is interpreted. Dr. Pitre clarified this often misunderstood text and prompted me to want to learn more about Jesus as The Bridegroom (so I am now listening to Dr. Pitre's talk "Jesus the Bridegroom"). Well worth the buy.

Very Good Biblical Study on Mary and Her Role in God's Plan

Dr. Pitre does a great job explaining biblically Mary's role and some reasons the veneration that we give her as Catholics. I knew some general concepts about this already, but his talk was very good at bringing these teachings together and expounding more fully upon these mysteries.

Excellent Explanation of the Mass as Biblical Worship

I can't tell you how many times I have used what I learned in this series when talking to both Catholics and Protestants. It is very relevant for a time when even Catholics are confused about the meaning and significance of the Mass.

Another great work by Dr. Pitre

Dr. Pitre does not disappoint in his latest look at St. Joseph, using Scripture, Church History and the Fathers to Get to the heart of who St. Joseph was. What a great resource. I can't wait for the book!
