    Everyone knows the Israelites in the Old Testament were supposed to follow the Law (Hebrew torah) of God given by Moses as their way of salvation. But what were the Gentiles supposed to do? Just suffer? Surprisingly, the Old Testament has an entire collection of teaching (Heb. torah, also) for Gentiles as well as Israelites: it's called the Wisdom Literature.

    These books teach God's way to live for anyone, living anywhere: Switzerland, Sweden, Swaziland or Svalbard. With his unique blend of passion and playfulness, Dr. Bergsma teaches his way through Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, Job, Wisdom and Sirach, showing why these books are as meaningful as ever for Catholics today.

Wisdom literature: endlessly fascinating

The Wisdom Books can seem like a "break" in the middle of Salvation History but, as Dr. Bergsma brilliantly shows, it's much more than that. Beautiful and profound, this study will help you no matter your level of biblical knowledge.

Wisdom for the whole world.

I received my CD set in a very timely manner as I always do when I order from you all. I haven’t finished all the cd’s yet. I listen to them on my way home from work and I’m enjoying them very much.
Thank you for all the work you do at Catholic Productions!! 😀

Great lectures

I love the content. I purchased the mp3 version, which does not have the track markers as the CD version does. So I find it extremely hard to navigate. I wish it had also the reading list for the course so you can supplement the lectures.

Hi Elisa. Thank you for the feedback. We chose against having the tracks since that many files would consume the music library on a device. It is also usually pretty easy to scroll to the desired location on a phone or tablet when listening to MP3s. If I can ever help with anything just let me know. Michael@CatholicProductions.com

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.
