    Have you ever wondered how to make progress in the spiritual life? Ever feel like your faults and failings have you just going in circles? You're not alone. In this illuminating Bible study, Dr. Brant Pitre looks at the spiritual life of Saint Peter through the lens of the three traditional stages or 'ages' of the spiritual life:

    • The Purgative Way
    • The Illuminative Way
    • The Unitive Way

    Dr. Pitre uses this framework to show how in the Gospels and the book of Acts, Simon Peter goes through the common stages of:

    • Spiritual Childhood (during Jesus' public ministry)
    • Spiritual Adolescence (after the crucifixion and resurrection)
    • Spiritual Adulthood (after Pentecost)

    Seen in this light, Peter's life reveals to us the progress and the pitfalls encountered by one of the greatest saints of all time. Most people can identify with Peter in the early stages of his discipleship, when he is constantly putting his foot in his mouth! But, as this inspiring Bible study shows, eventually, by means of the grace of God, Peter was transformed from a man who was so afraid of suffering that he betrayed Christ to an apostle of the Holy Spirit, who performed miracles, converted thousands, and laid the foundations of the Church. If you're looking for inspiration on making progress in your own spiritual life, and if you've ever identified with the mistakes made by Peter, then this is the Bible study for you.

    This recording was taken from the conference series, The Apostle Peter and the Papacy.

Knowledge and Wisdom Packed

This bible study truly helps me understand the stages that we must get through to reach holiness and I also learn that the apostles went through from this stages which is totally new to me. The highlights for me was when Christ reinstate Peter as the head of the church especially along the lines Do you love me. At first I thought it was love for a friend which is true but there was a deeper level within this scenario. I learn from this bible study that it was "agape" which means selfless love that Christ want from Peter it was a mind blowing wisdom and totally new that I got to learn from this bible study.

Sanctity and human growth

Human growth is natural, but spiritual growth is initiated by the Holy Spirit. Our personal growth inables is to say yes. I said yes to a priestly vocation because God grew and nurtured me as a boy who served, and civil rights movement that taught me about Matthew 25. Sanctity came by embracing the Sacraments and the Church. All I can say is Thank You Jesus.

The Seven Sacraments: Are They Biblical?

Wives Do What?!
Richard Wise
And the two shall become one

Here’s the deal. Husbands and wives are helpmates to heaven. This is a great presentation on how to do that. Matrimony is about a covenant based on sacrificial love. That would be a God based relationship.

Excellent Resource

Great study on the Mass as Biblical worship. If you’ve ever wondered why the Mass is structured the way it is, this is the Bible study for you. Brant Pitre is a dynamic and engaging speaker, and I highly recommend anything from him.

Very informative.

A wonderful presentation! I now have a much better understanding of this great saint. As I have been commissioned to paint an icon of St Joseph it has been timely and inspirational.

Knowing the Context Removes the Blinders

You cannot understand what St. Paul is teaching if you don't know who he is speaking to and how these people lived in the first century. You must understand the historical background, and no one explains it better than Dr. Petre. He opens up the first century, shows us how the gentiles lived and, more importantly, how Christ wanted them to live. The sad truth is that we face a similar culture today, and it gives me hope that the Church and its teachings survived and will survive again. If I had anything to say about it, I would insist that every engaged couple view this presentation. St. Paul's teachings are as relevant today as they were twenty centuries ago. I've been married for 35 years, but I learned a little more on how to improve my relationship with my husband.

Do I recommend this product to others? Absolutely! Everyone can learn from it.
