Very In Depth

I am 3 CD's in and I have gone back and listened to the same CD's already a few times, which is why I haven't finished the set yet. I have Protestant in-laws and I am using this set as a bible study to build up my Apologetics skills. I Would highly recommend purchasing it!

Book Of Acts...The Holy Spirit Leads the Church through hard times

Case arrived broken. Listened to the first three CDs and felt the production was so unprofessional and distracting that it wasn’t worth trying to extract any meaningful content from it. Very unlike the experiences I have had with Dr Pitre’s recordings.

Hi Elizabeth. I am sorry to hear that you were not happy with the recording. Would you mind letting me know what was distracting about the recording. I want to make sure you don't have a faulty set and try to make you right through an exchange or some other agreeable solution. Thank you! Michael



The Book of Acts: How the Holy Spirit Leads the Church through Hard Times

The Church in Acts Bible Study

I was present at this conference in San Diego California. I ordered this CD in the conference, and have continuously listen to it. It never gets old. Just Awesome. I see today's apologetics as God's prophets in modern days. God Bless all of you. I will continue listening to all your work in helping us understand our faith. Thank You , Thank You , And Thank You ..God Bless..

I am listening to this while driving and sometimes deliberately take the slow lane which will keep me longer in the car. I just can’t get enough. Many thanks for making the lectures publicly available

Jesus the Bridegroom

Excellent. Great overview for the book we are using for our bible study.


Great talk on adoration, and our need to spend time with our Lord.

Essential preparation for Easter

I am so glad that Dr. Petri came out with these videos of his presentations. I have read a lot of his books and use them in my Catechism Class. Please don't miss this opportunity to feast on what has taken him years to accumulate. It would be such a waste of a soul.
If your not fond of reading, definitely get his videos for yourself, your family, or for bringing back uneducated Catholics who may have left the faith. Our faith is so rich it is like a finely woven Persian carpet that takes years to make before you see the pattern...Dr. Petri has done all the weaving for you, you just get to step back and admire the work and then revel in what he reveals to you.
We are using this video in a presentation for our Parish the week before Easter...thank you Dr. Pitre!!!

Absolutely Amazing!!

As I've come to expect from Dr. Pitre!! He can take a profound mystery, which is central to our faith, and take us through a step by step process, to help us understand and appreciate this on a whole new level!! I recommend this to every Catholic!!
