Dr. Scott Hahn

In this informative talk, Dr. Scott Hahn explores some of the most important beliefs that distinguish Christianity from Islam. He explains that while both religions trace themselves back to Abraham, the differences, including our understanding of God as Father, are not insignificant. With charity, balance, and candor, Dr. Hahn shows us how Islam presents the most formidable challenge to Christianity in the Third millennium.

Angels Explained: What You Should Know About the Nine Choirs

Angels Explained: What You Should Know About the Nine Choirs

Dr. Mark Miravalle - Professor of Theology and Mariology at Franciscan University of Steubenville - teaches on the fascinating subject of Angels. Why did God create angels? How are they different from humans? Are guardian angels found in Scripture? Discover the answer to these questions and many more as Dr. Mark Miravalle explains the nine choirs of angels, their differing roles and hierarchical order, and how much angels can help us if we only ask.

 

I liked the very concise & detailed explanation of how the angel studies were done by the Church, the history of the angels, all the different types of angels & their duties (good & bad), the hierarchies, tying info to scripture & tradition, the importance of talking/praying to our guardian angel daily, invoking the angels, going to Adoration, etc. Everyone likes angels, but I didn't realize there was so much info, & how to join the good side to fight the fallen angels!

Answering Atheism

Answering Atheism

How can we evangelize an unbelieving world? In this talk, Ken Hensley uses simple, effective logic to show how the atheistic worldview inevitably leads to contradictions that can’t hold up to sound reasoning. After hearing this talk, you will be empowered to conclusively demonstrate how unbelief leads to the destruction of morality, meaning, and even knowledge.

 

"Teaches us that everybody is created to love. God is Love and we often deny our true calling. We are in denial. We don't know that the true faith is the Catholic Faith." Mirko, ON CA

33 Days to Morning Glory - Book

33 Days to Morning Glory - Book

From Fr. Michael E. Gaitley, MIC, author of the popular book "Consoling the Heart of Jesus," comes an extraordinary 33-day journey to Marian consecration with four giants of Marian spirituality: St. Louis de Montfort, St. Maximilian Kolbe, Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, and Blessed Pope John Paul II. 

Father Gaitley masterfully summarizes their teaching, making it easy to grasp, and simple enough to put into practice. More specifically, he weaves their thought into a user-friendly, do-it-yourself retreat that will bless even the busiest of people. 

 

Fr Gaitley was so personable and easy to listen to. It complimented his book nicely. Joanna - Great Falls, VA

Confession

Confession

Based upon his proven and powerful parish mission presentation, Fr. Larry Richards' talk on Confession has become the #1 talk in North America dealing with one of the Catholic Faith's most misunderstood Sacraments. He is riveting, honest, very human, often touchingly gentle, and yes, even humorous, and provides listeners with hope for a closer, healing relationship with Jesus Christ.

 

I re-evaluated my entire way of living because it made me realize that I was not as close to God as I thought! Brandy - Arlington, VA

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist

Dr. Brant Pitre uses the Hebrew Scriptures and Jewish tradition to frame the actions of Jesus at the Last Supper, and to provide a fresh look at the heart of Catholic practice — the Eucharist. By taking us back to the Jewish roots of our faith, Dr. Pitre gives us a powerful lens through which to see anew the bread of the presence, the manna, the Last Supper, and ultimately the meaning of the Eucharist.

 

Amazing teaching on the Eucharist!! Such fullness; so rich in history... The more I learn, the more I love our Faith! Lydia - Windham, NH

The Fourth Cup

The Fourth Cup

Well-known Catholic theologian Dr. Scott Hahn explains Christ's Paschal Sacrifice on the cross as the fulfillment of the traditional fourth cup used in the celebration of the Jewish Passover meal. He draws a symbolic parallel to the Last Supper and Christ's death on Calvary. Through his scholarly insights and important biblical connections, Mass will come alive for you as never before!

 

Thank you! This put all the pieces of the puzzle together concerning the Holy Eucharist. The Mass has come alive for me and my family! Joe - Kettering, OH

Born Again? Faith Alone?

Born Again? Faith Alone?

In one of his most focused talks to date, Stephen Ray discusses salvation, the authentic biblical understanding of being "born again", and how we are saved by faith, but not "faith alone". With great humor and doctrinal depth, he goes all the way back to Abraham to show that we are saved by faith and obedience to all that Christ demands of us.

 

"The best talk I've ever heard on being 'born again' and on salvation!" Gary Michuta

Customer Comments


"An amazing explanation of Islam and Christianity!" Cheryl - Vernon, NJ
"It was a respectful and clear presentation of the challenges that exist between our beliefs as Catholics and the beliefs of Muslims." Thomas, FL
"I just wish it was longer. I was left wanting to "turn over" the CD to hear the second half." Marcus, CO
The content and the explanations shed a lot of light on questions I had and made me think about things I took for granted. Terry - Sterling, MA
It helped me learn more about Islam that I didn't know. Amsterdam, NY
The fact that the sons of Abraham became both slave (Ishmael) and free (Isaac). I didn't know or wasn't aware that Muslims' felt like Allah was as a slave master to them, whereas Christians maintain the filial aspect as adopted sons of God, so he is our Father, and we are his beloved children. That this causes the Muslims a lot of grief was very interesting to me. Dr. Hahn, as always, presents this material in such enjoyable fashion. His explanation of this difference of belief between Muslims and Christians was a mother lode to me. Thank you! Les - Oregon City, OR
We need to get as many of these out and on the streets. A very important talk that all need to hear! Philip - Val-Morin, QC
As an Artillery officer in the US military, I often times train with Arab muslims. Although these individuals do not show themselves to be hostile toward my Christian soldiers, they do actively seek to spread their version of salvation. I thought it was refreshing to have so clear a picture painted for me of the origins of Islam. Also, the extra piece from Robert Spencer at the end of that CD was just as interesting. I appreciate the work your company does to spread the Truth of the Catholic Faith. From the very bottom of my heart, Thanks and God bless! Jacob - Auburn, AL
We know so little about Islam because of "tolerance" and PC. I'm grateful that someone is addressing the differences, which are not small, but are very relevant to our times! Maria - Florissant, MO
How to really look at Islam. What the truth is. Bill - Marlton, NJ
Both parts were very informative and interesting especially in today's world. I thought it was excellent. I will be listening to it again and I will pass it around. John - Brookville, PA
It was highly educational, yet entertaining; filled with genuine love for the Lord and His Church. My sister 'married' a Muslim and allegedly started to practice his religion. After I listened to this CD I regained hope and desire to bring sacrifice and pray for her, her husband, and their children. Maria - North Port, FL
after listening to the presentation, i signed up for the monthly CD program. The presentations are refreshing and very worthwhile for faith formation and education. Raymond Ting - Beeliar, WA
A frank and un-apologitic explanation of the problems with Islam. Dominick - DeBary, FL
It was a respectful and claear presentation of the challenges that exist between our beliefs as Catholics and the beliefs of Muslims. It was also a clear challenge to be in the words of Scott Hahn, true sons of the Father in that we would take up our cross with love for our Father. Proverbs 17 verse 2 challenges all sons to act wisely or to yield to the sons of the slave. The additional thoughts of Robert Spencer was also challenging in that dialogue with Muslims is especially difficult because their core beliefs are very different from our own. We need to do a better job expressing our beliefs and evanglizing. Thomas - Ocoee, FL
I enjoyed the way that the issue was stressed. Dr. Hahn elaborated the point that for us Catholics, God is Father, Abba. This gave me a great appreciation for this in front of not just Islam, but in front of mere spirituality or atheism. It was also very beneficial to hear the bonus segment from Robert Spencer. Marcus - Lakewood, CO
I very much enjoyed learning about the difference between a Loving God and a Master God. Humberto - Miami, FL
I enjoyed the comparison contrast of Muslim and Jewish religions. Jesus - Achorage, AK
It is a subject that we Catholics don't enough except what the media gives us. We as Catholics have to understand the problem of the growth of Islam and need to educate ourselves of what they stand for. Augustin - Houston, TX
Dr Hahn is a charismatic speaker and inspiring story-teller. The strength and depth of his faith and the breadth of his knowledge come through in this CD, and I enjoyed the way he presented God as Father. Marie - Steamboat Springs, CO
Just how in biblical sense the nature of islam and how we differ from how they see God. Karl - Gibsons, BC
This CD has given me some insight into Islam. Servant of God, Frank Duff and founder of the Legion of Mary, wrote a short booklet on Islam and the Blessed Virgin; he felt that it would be Mary who would bring them to Christ. Pauline - Mississauga, ON
I learned more in this one presentation than all the reading I have done since 9/11 on what Islam is all about. Scott Hahn made it crystal clear what the differences are. Now I can converse about this with intelligent facts. The basic difference between thinking of God as Abba (my father) vs. Allah (my feared master) solidified the feeling I always had that I was on the right track and they were not. Now I know why. Thank you so much for this CD. Beverly - Arvada, CO
It was a very in-depth look at the differences between Catholicism and Islam and how we, as Catholics, need to be aware of how rampid it is growing. Fantastic CD! Christina - Cary, IL
Excellent presentation, easy to follow and full of historical information and bible references. Highly recommend Dr. Hahn's presentations. Carlos - Brentwood, CA
This CD caused me to start opening my eyes to what Islam really teaches. Michael - Warren, MA
It gave me an insight into the Islamic religion, caused me to think about things I hadn't thought about before and didn't know about Islam and how it compares to Christianity. I sure am glad to be Christian. Marcella - Wichita, KS
Every Christian of the third millennium needs to listen to this! You will become firmer and more appreciative of your identity as a child of God and of God as your Father. You will also begin to see the urgency that we have in this age to stand firm in our Catholic faith and to proclaim it to the world. Christie - OH
I love how Dr. Hahn started his teaching with a personal story...im always fan of him. I love every minute of it. jo - Toronto, ON
Dr. Hahn was very knowledgeable about the subject matter and he included personal anecdotes that kept us captivated. We now have a better understanding of our God and also an understanding of Islam. Pauline - Carmichael, CA
The correct information regarding the fundamental philosophical differences between Christianity and islam. james - Merrimack, NH
It is so helpful to be able to receive such invaluable instruction from someone who has dedicated his life to evangelizing all of us starving folks! Thank you. Neenah, WI
Learning about the historical basis for Muslim beliefs. Hearing why Muslims think of all others as infidels. Rich - New oxford, PA
The recommended further readings about the Islam religion Jason - Grovetown, GA
This breaks down the differences between Christianity and Islam to the very beginning of both religions. I've read a lot that has sought to define the rift in terms of economics or secular values. This is far more telling and sensible than anything else I've encountered. OK
Very good comparison between the two faiths. The best part was Dr. Hahn's assessment of the origins of Catholicism and Islam as each pertained to the respective Abrahamic roots (i.e. the relationship between Abraham and Ishmael compared to the relationship between Abraham and Isaac). Kevin - Wichita Falls, TX
another Ace for Dr Hahn. Opened up my undertsanding and have been sharing these with friends & future family Eddy - Tampa, FL
Dr. Hahn does a great job explaining Islam and use his personal experIences to light light his explanation. His historical prospectus of Islam on the faith and world is very impressive. Cornelius - Fort McCoy, FL
I thought I understood Islam before I listened to Dr. Hahn's explanation of what it meant to be a follow of the religion of a "lonesome god!" One must feel sorry for someone whose god is not loving, nor can be loved. Cornelius - Fort McCoy, FL
Understanding the differences between these two religions was very eye opening. Alan - Corpus Christi, TX
This website and the resources are invaluable not just to practicing Catholics but for fallen away Catholics who left because they really did not understand the faith. It is even more of an evangelical tool to "PROPERLY" inform other faiths about the truth as to who we Catholics are. We are not a cult as has been alleged and the resources here clearly explain this. Great job on creating this, it makes my job as a follower of Christ easier to explain why we believe the way we do. Greg - Henderson, NV
I liked the way Dr, Hahn explained the roots of Abraham. Andrea - Orlando, FL
extremely enlightening and informative. thank you Virginia - Rowe, NM
The differences were very clearly explained . I am a high school Resource Teacher and my 9th graders always have a Global Studies assignment that includes comparing Islam, and Christianity. Dr. Scott Hahn's biblical explanation was very enlightening. I purchased 3additional copies and passed then along to other teachers. It is excellent and the 2nd talk by Robert Spencer was equally informative. NY
I have recommended to others not only Catholics but those Protestant brothers also. What a blessing this is for me thank you. Alfredo Alfredo - Houston, TX
The bonus speaker after Dr. Hahn Salem, VA
While I knew that there was a steady increase of Muslims within our world, I have never done much research on the topic. This CD has helped me realize that now is the time to truly understand our faith and become better educated in explaining and defending it to all peoples from all faith denominations. Zachary - Newton, KS
Dr Hahn was able to present the information in a down to earth manner that was easy to understand. Patricia - Duluth, MN
Becoming more informed with Islam. Elizabeth - 67235, KS
Dr. Scott good information but about Islam He need to study Quran. Rufus - Lancaster, PA
Dr. Hahn provided new insights for me as to the deeper meaning of the Genesis accounts of Abraham as father and master with regards to his two sons, Issac (relationship of a father's love with teh son of promise ) and Ishmaal (relationship of a master to his slave/property)and the prophetic meaning as it relates to Christianity and Islam. It was a most informative, spiritually enlightening presentation. It was also direct & honest, repectful, balance and charible towards Muslims. Ann - AUDUBON, PA
