    “What must I do to inherit eternal life?” Since Jesus was first asked this question, perhaps no issue has had greater impact on the history of the Church. For the last five centuries, the debate over how a person is saved has sharply divided Catholics and Protestants. It is a question that impacts every single one of our lives, both now and in eternity. In this unique series, Dr. Pitre takes up the issue that stands at the very heart of the Christian Gospel: the question of salvation. In this amazing study, you will learn about:


    • The “New Perspective” on Paul: What is the so-called “new Perspective on Paul” that Protestant Christians are fighting about with one another? Why is this new perspective moving some Protestants closer to the Catholic view of salvation?

    The Catholic Doctrine of Justification: Many Christians are familiar with the Protestant belief in “faith alone,” but what is the Catholic doctrine of justification? What does the Council of Trent teach about grace, faith, works, and merit in the letters of Paul?

    Faith, Works, and Righteousness: What does the apostle Paul teach about grace, faith, and works? Does the Catholic Church teach that we can ‘earn’ our salvation? If not, what role do works play in our justification and sanctification?

    ‘Once Saved, Always Saved’?: Many Protestants believe in absolute ‘assurance of salvation’. But does the apostle Paul really teach this? What do Catholics believe? Once we have been justified, can we lose our salvation?


    Many Protestants (and some Catholics!) think that when it comes to salvation, the apostle Paul was ‘the first Protestant’. As this Bible study shows, nothing could be further from the truth! If you’ve ever wanted to dive into the question of how a person is saved and be able to explain it to others from a biblical perspective, then this is the Bible study for you.

    *** While there is some overlap between this set and Faith and Works According to Paul and James, this set covers more scriptural passages in the New Testament as they relate to salvation as well as the current state of Protestant Biblical scholarship. ***

Opening up Sacred Scripture

As part of our armor of God, we are given Sacred Scripture. It’s one thing to read it every day, and to be able to quote it, but I also want to understand it as God intended—not with my own limited understanding. Dr. Brandt Pitre consistently opens up Sacred Scripture for me in an engaging way where I can understand it and apply it more readily to my every day life.

A must for theology geeks!

This is an absolute must for anyone interested in the scholarly debates about St. Paul, and also the Catholic teaching on Justification. Dr. Pitre gives a concise and accurate survey of the "New Perspectives" movement in Pauline scholarship (Wright, Dunn, and Sanders) in volume one and focuses on the Catholic teaching on Justification in volume two. I can't recommend this highly enough. Also, Dr. Pitre's book "Paul, A New Covenant Jew" is highly recommended too. Thank you to Catholic Productions for making this amazing and "user-friendly" scholar available to us lay folk.

Introduction to Sprirtual Life

Order and check out was fast and easy. It arrived quickly and I hope to dive deeper into the contents of the book by Dr. Pitre.

Keep it simple

Dr Pitre speaks in understandable terms. I heard his class cd’s then book. It’s great for information about growth in the spiritual life and perfect for reference as well as short readings for meditation

Must read!

I am about half way through and am loving this book. Really points out the importance of fasting, almsgiving, and prayer. References Jewish roots and where Jesus reaffirms it. How to apply it. Already changing my way of thinking and making me realize how important it all is, and made me realize where I am lacking and need to do more. And, of course, Brant Pitre always writes/speaks in such an easy to read and understand way, love all his books, CDs and DVDs.

How is 25 hours too short?

This is an amazing series. My initial reactions:

1) 25 hours.?!? Woah...
2) $95 for just downloads..? Seems a bit steep.

Thoughts now:
1) That flew buy
2) Totally worth it!

Once you consider you're getting a college level course and once you experience the quality of the instruction, you will recognize the value of this.

It's amazing to me that this has gone so quickly and I'm still desiring so much more. Definitely going to look into Dr. Pitre's other classes.

Wets the appetite

This talk was excellent and makes me want to dive even deeper into his longer class on the same subject. Would definitely recommend it to someone who's thinking about buying his class and wants to get a feel for what that might be like. Will open your eyes to what we do at Mass.
