I llike it though only half of it I had listened to.

Maybe because I am listening to new speakers.

Nancy Janasz

The content is excellent and well worth listening to. The presentations vary in quality even for the same presenter. Some sections are very focused and enthusiastic while other sections are perfunctory. Our only real issue was the sound quality of the first presentation. The speaker is very loud and then his voice trails off close to inaudible for important content at the end of a sentence or section of material. We had to manually adjust the sound in order to hear properly. Perhaps something could be done on a technical level to improve future recordings.

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!

Loved it

I learn so much from Dr Pitre in general. I own a few of his books & have listened to his talks on YouTube & I appreciate the way he teaches. I decided to purchase this study (in addition to another one for Advent, with Mary)seeing as we're approaching Advent 2021 & I'm so glad I did. It didn't disappoint. I'm back on here purchasing 4 more! I appreciate his style & method of explaining things.

Nothing Dead here. Interesting and insightful here.

I thought the CD was great. It offered me much to think about and ponder about our Lord while he was on this earth.

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Advent

Brilliant, challenging, comprehensive, uplifting!

Case for Jesus

This was the first book I bought and read of Dr. Pitre’s. I found it really accessible. It was easy to follow and well written. This introduction to Dr. Pitre and his skill at communicating his knowledge in a way that is easy to follow has led me to continue to study with more of his works.

Jesus and the End Times

With all the events happening in the world today, I enjoyed and received peace of mind hearing the Catholic view of the end times.
