CP 256


• What did Jesus mean by the coming of "the kingdom"?

• How does St. Paul teach us to live out the Kingdom?

  • Award-winning author and theology professor John Bergsma follows up his popular Bible Basics for Catholics—which has sold more than 60,000 copies—with a more in-depth look at the New Testament. Using simple illustrations and the same clear, conversational style that characterized his earlier book, Bergsma introduces four of the most important writers in the New Testament: Matthew, Luke, Paul, and John.

    With humor and simple illustrations, theology professor John Bergsma focuses on Matthew, Luke, Paul, and John, whose writings comprise about 90 percent of the New Testament. The gospel of Matthew, written for Jewish Christians, illuminates the life and teachings of Christ as the long-promised Messiah. In Luke's gospel, readers will delve into the infancy and Triduum narratives, as well as the Acts of the Apostles and the life of the early Church. This leads the reader to discover St. Paul and his first and arguably greatest theological treatise: Romans. Finally, “the beloved apostle” St. John draws us in to the unsurpassed beauty of the fourth gospel, as well as the most mysterious book of the New Testament: the book of Revelation. A concluding chapter offers suggestions for further study.

    Intended as an introductory work for those who are new to scripture study, New Testament Basics for Catholics does not aspire to be a comprehensive guide to all twenty-seven books of the New Testament, but is intended to lay the foundation for a lifetime of scripture reading. A great compliment to this fantastic book is Dr. Bergsma's New Testament Course Mountains and Mediators: A Survey of the New Testament.

Excellent book!

I thought the ‘prequel’ to this book (Bible Basics for Catholics) was so good I use it to teach the Bible to my 6th grade classes at our Catholic School. Now I’m using New Testament Basics to teach the Gospels to my 7th graders. The’Bible Basics’ books are like great commentaries on the Bible, yet they are readable by even pre-teens!

Home Run

I picked this book up at a retreat a few weeks ago. Dr. Bergsma has hit another home run in explaining the mysteries of the gospel to us in such an easy to read format. Thank you Dr. B!

Another great talk

Great talk on Abraham, the father of the faith. Dr. Pitre always has great insight, coupled with a great ability to clearly explain things. Highly recommended.

Sin and Salvation: A Bible Study on Romans

Pitre is great

I have not seen a Pitre tape that I didn't like they are all great.

The Nature of Man, the Nature of the Fall

This program provides great insight into the nature of Man and the nature of the Fall. All is well, the New Adam has conquered.

The Best Study Hands Down!!!

If you want facts, this book is for you. However, to love God is to know God, and this book will deepen your relationship with Jesus regardless of what stage you're in. Just watch what the Truth does to your heart. Dr. Pitre has become my absolute favorite to read and listen to for studying scripture. I’m amazed every time and can’t get enough! I will be reading The Case for Jesus a second time to take notes for better cognition. I can’t recommend this book enough, you will Not be disappointed.
