Bestselling author of Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist casts new light on the Virgin Mary, illuminating her role in the Old and New Testaments.

Are Catholic teachings on Mary really biblical? Or are they the "traditions of men"? Should she be called the "Mother of God," or just the mother of Jesus? Did she actually remain a virgin her whole life or do the "brothers of Jesus" refer to her other children? By praying to Mary, are Catholics worshipping her? And what does Mary have to do with the quest to understand Jesus?
In Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary, Dr. Pitre takes readers step-by-step from the Garden of Eden to the Book of Revelation to reveal how deeply biblical Catholic beliefs about Mary really are. Dr. Pitre uses the Old Testament and Ancient Judaism to unlock how the Bible itself teaches that Mary is in fact the new Eve, the Mother of God, the Queen of Heaven and Earth, and the new Ark of the Covenant.

The Healing Power of Confession

The Healing Power of Confession

Dr. Scott Hahn presents the historical and biblical origins of the Sacrament of Penance (Reconciliation). He provides an important guide for new Catholics, a source of renewal for "old hands", and a challenge to all of us to deepen our relationship with Christ through regular use of the Sacrament of Penance.

 

This is an outstanding talk on Confession that cuts to the heart of this great Sacrament of Mercy. Father Joseph - Baltic, CT

Suffering & The Love of God

Suffering & The Love of God

Why would an all-powerful, all-loving God allow suffering and evil in the world? As Fr. Robert Spitzer, S.J., Ph.D. explains, unsatisfying answers to this important question are the #1 reason for atheism today. But by answering this question with logic and love (as well as with scientific, peer-reviewed evidence for the existence of life after death), we can not only answer this question truthfully and satisfactorily, but also teach our fellow Christians how to suffer well, in preparation for the limitless love of God that awaits us in eternity.


This talk was recorded by FOCUS, at SEEK 2013. focus.org

“Fr. Spitzer answered so many of my questions about the existence of God, suffering, life after death. Wow. Just... wow.”

The Crisis of Happiness: Hurting, Addicting, & Healing

The Crisis of Happiness: Hurting, Addicting, & Healing

When you hear the word “addiction”, what typically comes to mind? Needles? Alcohol? Pills? As Jim Owens, MA, LPC explains, addiction is much simpler, including everything from substances to technology, screen time, work, shopping, and even sugar. Addictions and distractions are used to manage pain—but in the process, end up damaging our brains, our relationships, and our ability to find lasting happiness. Jim gives scientific evidence and practical advice for overcoming wounds, to help hurt people become healed people.


At the conclusion of this talk, you will also be able to hear a bonus sample of the CD: Know Your Story: The Love God in the Narrative of Your Life by Sr. Miriam James Heidland, SOLT.


Purchase includes a free MP3 download!

 

“An excellent talk... engaging, and made me examine my life on a meaningful level. I think this will really help those who are struggling to understand themselves better and seek the healing they need, for them and their loved ones."

Mary (20 Answers) - Booklet

Mary (20 Answers) - Booklet

How can a human woman be God’s mother?

Where in the Bible does it say that Mary was sinless and a perpetual virgin?

Doesn’t praying to Mary and calling her “mediatrix” turn her into a kind of goddess?

What can I do to build and deepen my relationship with Mary as my spiritual mother in heaven?

In 20 Answers: Mary you’ll find smart, solid answers to these questions and many more. From the cross, as his mission of redemption reached its climax, Jesus gave us Mary to be our mother. In 20 Answers: Mary you’ll find biblical evidence for Marian doctrine and devotion, answers to common objections to Catholic teachings about Mary, and guidance on how to imitate Christ—which we should do in all things—by loving and honoring his mother.

Shakespeare the Catholic - Book

Shakespeare the Catholic - Book

Best-selling literary writer Joseph Pearce presents a stimulating and vivid biography of the world's most revered playwright and poet. Unabashedly provocative and sure to be controversial, this work strives to separate historical fact from fiction about the beloved Bard, arguing the case with scholarship, insight, and keen observation. Famous, yet almost unknown, Shakespeare is not only one of the greatest figures in human history, he is also one of the most elusive. Who was he? What were his beliefs? Can we really understand his plays if we don’t know the man who wrote them? These are some of the questions that are asked and answered in this gripping and engaging study. Shakespeare the Catholic claims that books about the Bard have got him totally wrong. They misread the man and misread his work. The true Shakespeare has eluded the grasp of the critics. Dealing with the facts of Shakespeare's life and times, Pearce's quest leads to the inescapable conclusion that Shakespeare was a believing Catholic living in very anti-Catholic times.

About the Author

Joseph Pearce is Director of Book Publishing at the Augustine Institute, editor of the St. Austin Review, and the author of books on Shakespeare, Tolkien, Chesterton, and other Christian literary figures.


Praise for Shakespeare the Catholic

“Pearce has gone back in Shakespeare the Catholic” to this greatest of English Catholics, showing precisely how Shakespeare's greatness consists in his hidden Catholicism. This is a book that bodes well to proving a literary masterpiece.
— Peter Milward, S.J., Author, Shakespeare the Papist

“Pearce writes with historical insight on one hand and poetic imagination on the other. Perhaps our greatest living biographer, Pearce has the uncanny ability to get into the minds, hopes, fears, and motivations of his subjects.”
— Bradley J. Birzer, Ph.D., Author, J.R.R. Tolkien's Sanctifying Myth

 

Why Be Catholic?

Why Be Catholic?

For those who aren't Catholic, it may not be apparent why one should embrace the Catholic Faith. In this inspiring presentation, bestselling author Patrick Madrid gives compelling biblical and historical reasons for why he embraces the faith as a lifelong Catholic. He shares valuable insights into the beauty of the Catholic Church and its claim to contain the fullness of the deposit of faith given by Christ.

 

This CD was awesome - I'll be listening again and again! It gave logical, biblical reasons to be and stay Catholic. Peggy - Finksburg, MD
