Is Catholicism true? Or is it just made up? How can I explain the faith to my family or friends who no longer believe?
In this mind-blowing series, Dr. Brant Pitre takes up the most commonly asked questions about the Catholic faith and provides clear and compelling biblical answers. He begins at the beginning--with the existence of God--and walks you step-by-step through the foundations of the faith. Along the way, Dr. Pitre explains:
Does God Exist? How can we know it?
Is Jesus God? Did Jesus claim to be God? And why should we believe him?
Peter and the Papacy? Did Jesus establish the Catholic Church? What is the historical evidence?
How Did We Get the Bible? From where did the Bible come? Who decided which books got in and which didn't?
Is the Eucharist Jesus’ Real Presence? What does the Bible teach about Jesus' Real Presence in the Eucharist?
Why Confess to a Priest? Did Jesus arrange for us to confess our sins to a priest of the new covenant?
Do Catholics Worship Mary? What does the Bible teach about her?
Purgatory and Prayers for the Dead? Where is Purgatory in the Bible? Why do Catholics pray for the dead?
If you've ever been asked any of these questions but weren't quite sure how to answer -- or if you know someone who has left the Church and no longer believes, then buckle up: this Bible study is for you. In it, you'll discover how just reasonable, biblical, and beautiful the Catholic faith really is.
I learned so much from listening to this. Thank you so much for quality material!!
Great speaker, easy to listen to & follow. Easy listening with inter spiced humor balancing a wealth of knowledge of religious history of old and New Testament!
One of the best series on the market. Presentations are on the mark in every respect. Should be used by every parish in the nation.
everything I expected.
This is a great series to use for catechesis and discussion in small groups - I will be using it to appeal to moms of young children to help them understand and appreciate the beauty and intellectual integrity of the Faith, as well as fostering Catholic friendships. Thank you Dr. Pitre!!
