    When it comes to the Catholic Church in our time, perhaps the most frequently asked question is: "Why do I have to confess my sins to a priest?" It is often followed by two others: "Why can't I just go straight to God? Where is the sacrament of confession in the Bible?"

    In Why We Confess, Dr. Brant Pitre gives an eye-opening Bible study on the origins and meaning of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, commonly known as "Confession." In this two-part Bible Study, you will learn about:

    • The Fall of Adam and Eve and the First "Confession"
    • Confession of Sins to a Priest in the Old Testament
    • John's Baptism of Repentance and Confession of Sins
    • The link between Jesus' Miraculous Healings and the Sacrament of Reconciliation
    • The Parable of the Prodigal Son
    • When Jesus Gave the Apostles the Power to Absolve and Retain Sins
    • The Practice of Confession in the Early Church

    Many of us know Catholics who haven't been to Confession in years, even decades. Maybe you are one of them. Whoever you are -- if you've ever wondered about the biblical roots of this sacrament, then Why We Confess is the Bible Study for you.

    As you'll discover, Jesus was (quite literally) dying to institute the sacrament of Confession as an essential part of God's plan for "reconciling the world to himself" (2 Corinthians 5:19).

Great Resource!!!

Why We Confess

In this presentation, Dr. Pitre guides us through the historical relevance of the sacrament of confession. You will be surprised to find out how this sacrament was valid even since Adam's time in the Garden of Eden! This product is a must for anyone who wishes to understand the historical divinity behind one of the most popular sacraments that is attributed with Catholicism. It helped me understand how confession is a strong outward sign of God's loving mercy (to which we are all invited)!

Why We Confess

My husband is beginning the conversion process and we both rely on Brant Petrie’s videos to answer so many questions that we both have about the faith. Coming from a Protestant background, this topic is of special interest to him. Thank you Catholic Productions, and Brant Petrie for supplying such a valuable product!

Great for RCIA

I use a lot of Dr. Pitre's videos in teaching RCIA. This is a very detailed and perfect explanation of why we confess to priests. Highly recommend.

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.
