    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.

Great Bible Study

Our Bible Study covered this video last night and it was so well received. Many people commented on how much new stuff they learned and how it both related to and informed them of their own spiritual life!

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.

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.
