    Why is there so much killing in the Old Testament? Why does Moses pronounce such harsh laws? How can a good God send a flood on the earth and command the Israelites to wipe out the inhabitants of Canaan?

    These are some of the hardest questions people ask about the Bible, but they aren’t new. The ancient rabbis and Church Fathers wrestled with them millennia ago. In this powerful talk, Dr. Bergsma marshals all the resources of Christian theology and contemporary scholarship to address:

    • Why do some biblical heroes seem to “get away with” some atrocious actions?
    • Why are certain biblical stories so unedifying?
    • Why do some laws of Moses permit unjust actions, and have harsh penalties?
    • Why did God command Israel to put the Canaanites to death?

    Dr. Bergsma is convinced that only by grappling with the hard questions face-to-face do we come to a deeper understanding of the nature of God and of the reality he created.

The Origin of the Bible: Human Invention or Divine Intervention?

ALL of Dr. Pitre's videos and studies are excellent...you will not go wrong by ordering any of them! Wonderful lessons!

Wonderful Presentation on Mary from Old Testament Themes

This presentation makes a persuasive case that Mary is fulfilling many themes from the Old Testament. Dr. Pitre, also, highlights that Mary is closely linked to Jesus as it relates to Catholic doctrine. Mary is honored, whereas Jesus is worshiped.

The dead Sea Scolls for Catholics

Would love to rate this set, BUT we haven't received our set yet.

Hi Ruth! The tracking shows it departed Memphis yesterday after taking 15 days to get from New Orleans to Memphis. The USPS is experiencing delays due to having more packages than they can process

Excellent study!

This is a great addition to help one prepare for the season of advent!
