    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.

Feedback to The Dark Passages of the Old Testament

I think the Q&A session is a bit long. It is more valuable to have more content from the speaker.

Dark Passages of the Old Testament

Very good explanation of how to understand the dark passages of the Old Testament. As I listen to the presentation, I follow along on the outline, marking the track numbers as I go. This makes it very easy to find a particular explanation point on the disc. Thanks very much, Dr. Bergsma and Catholic Productions!

The Dead Sea Scrolls for Catholics

Doctor Bergman's delivery of this topic is very good, and easy to listen to. I enjoy his insights and his sense of humor.

The delivery of the package left a lot to be desired...it took from April 16 to May 4th to get to us. In todays' next day delivery environment it leaves a lot to be desired. A warning on your website that delivery of a letter-sized package can take over two weeks to be delivered would lower expectations and increase customer satisfaction.

I am very sorry for the shipping delay. The post office in the New Orleans area has been struggling lately, which causes packages to sit in one place for a week before being moved along in the process. We have spoken to them regarding this and hope they can get it resolved soon

Great Information on the greatest male Saint

This was such a great series to purchase. Saint Joseph is my patron saint. I learned so much from this talk. One thing I learned is that Saint Joseph was not old as many pictures show him to be. What a refreshing series. Learning about Jesus more through Joseph. Saint Joseph also would have given Jesus his name. Powerful talks. Consider purchasing this series; it will help you grow more in your culture and faith.

The 4th Cup

Tremendous!
