    What is “faith”? Is it, as many opponents of Christianity allege, just ‘make believe’ and fairy tales? Or is it, as the secular word thinks, something we believe in order to help us to ‘get by’, a kind of therapy? Or is it, as even some Christians believe, merely a kind of ‘intellectual assent’ to the truth taught by the Gospel?

    In this important new presentation, given for the Year of Faith (2012-2013), Dr. Brant Pitre focuses our attention on what the Bible tells us about the mystery of faith in the life of Abraham. According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, in all of the Old Testament, it is Abraham who is the “the model” of what it means to have faith in God (CCC 144). Taking his cue from this teaching, Dr. Pitre walks you through the ups and downs of Abraham’s life of faith:


    • The Call of Abram and his Journey in Faith
    • The Faith of Abram and his “Righteousness”
    • The Dark Night of Abram and the Mysterious Sacrifice of Animals
    • Hagar the Concubine and Abraham’s Son Ishmael
    • The Mystery of Circumcision
    • The Mystery of the Sacrifice of Isaac
    • How the Sacrifice of Isaac points us to the Mysteries of the Cross and the Trinity
    • The Life of Abraham and the Three Ages of the Spiritual Life (Purgative, Illuminative, and Unitive)


    Rather than giving an abstract lecture on the mystery of faith, this presentation makes faith come alive by looking at the concrete life of Abraham, our father in faith. Along the way, you are sure to see yourself and your own journey in faith—including your own ‘dark nights’—in the life and faith of Abraham.

Saint Peter and The Three Stages of the Spiritual Life – MP3 Saint Peter and the Three Stages of ...

Easy to understand. Jesus asking Peter three times if he loved Him is a part of the Bibke many of us read about but Dr Brant’s explanation provided a new angle to look at the readings all over again. Very inspiring and something all of us are able to identify with

Ahem.

Most of the stuff in the presentation I knew from other sources. For someone unfamiliar with the topic, it would be a nice gift. Thus, the three star rating. Not a bad presentation for the uninitiated.

The Dead Sea Scrolls for Catholics

Doctor Bergman's delivery of this topic is very good, and easy to listen to. I enjoy his insights and his sense of humor.

The delivery of the package left a lot to be desired...it took from April 16 to May 4th to get to us. In todays' next day delivery environment it leaves a lot to be desired. A warning on your website that delivery of a letter-sized package can take over two weeks to be delivered would lower expectations and increase customer satisfaction.

I am very sorry for the shipping delay. The post office in the New Orleans area has been struggling lately, which causes packages to sit in one place for a week before being moved along in the process. We have spoken to them regarding this and hope they can get it resolved soon

The Hidden King: The Jewish Roots of St. Joseph

Fr Donald Calloway ( author of Consecration To St. Joseph) highly recommended this lesson !!! He said Brant Pitre , Knocks it Out of the Park !!!!! He was extremely excited about the info included inside. He loved it !!! I have to agree !!! This was an incredible experience ! Extremely interesting !!!! If you have a love for St Joseph & want to learn more. This is a great teaching !!! What better time to learn than this year ... The year of St Joseph !!! Ite ad Ioseph !!!

From NZ

Looking forward to the books arriving. Thanks

Great Information on the greatest male Saint

This was such a great series to purchase. Saint Joseph is my patron saint. I learned so much from this talk. One thing I learned is that Saint Joseph was not old as many pictures show him to be. What a refreshing series. Learning about Jesus more through Joseph. Saint Joseph also would have given Jesus his name. Powerful talks. Consider purchasing this series; it will help you grow more in your culture and faith.

The 4th Cup

Tremendous!
