    “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. ***

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.

Justification: Divine Sonship for Catholics

Dr. Pitre presented a very clear distinction between the Catholic view of Justification as Divine Sonship VS the protestant view of justification as imputed righteousness i.e. dung covered with snow. I would rather be an adoptive son than dung. Thank you Dr. Pitre for teaching me how to differentiate the two.

New Perspective on Paul

Fantastic! It's Dr. Brant Pitre, what would you expect? It helps me to have this when evangelizing to protestants.

The Guardian

It was great. I’m waiting for his book on the “Jewish Roots of St. Joseph”

I always enjoy the MP3’s I buy from Catholic Productions.

The Hidden King, The Jewish Routes of St Joseph

Well presented and extremely informative. Great insight into the true meaning of passages based on the traditions of the writers which explains their intent.

Brant does not disappoint!

Great resource!

I never knew so much about St. Joseph. Only Dr. Pitre can go so in-depth with so much passion, and bring out the best information, and present it in the most understandable way.
