The Epic Journey of Catholic Explorer Cabeza de Vaca

Craig Turner

In 1527, Spanish explorer Cabeza de Vaca led an expedition to Florida. Craig Turner here tells this amazing story — a tale of shipwrecks and slavery, of miracles, battles, apparitions, privations and hardship, of spies and bribery, of human sacrifice, and above all, an astonishing journey through a wilderness that took all but four lives out of three hundred. Those who sought to gain the most fared the worst, and those who accepted their terrible fate performed miracles.

From Atheism to Catholicism: My Conversion Diary

From Atheism to Catholicism: My Conversion Diary

Jennifer Fulwiler is a popular writer and speaker from Austin, Texas. In this compelling presentation, she recalls her spiritual journey —one which ultimately led her to enter the Catholic Church after having lived a life of atheism. Jennifer is a regular contributor to the National Catholic Register and frequently appears on Catholic radio and EWTN. Her highly anticipated book, Something Other Than God, is now available in an audio book format.



 

An incredibly honest and open search for truth brought atheist Jennifer Fulwiler right into the arms of God as He was waiting patiently for her in the Catholic Church! We all should follow her lead! Julie- Sterling, VA

Rising Above: From Tragedy to Triumph

Rising Above: From Tragedy to Triumph

At nine years old, John O'Leary was involved in a horrific incident and was given only a one percent change to survive. Today, nearly three decades later, he travels the world teaching others how to truly live. In this presentation, John draws on his life's experience to intimately illustrate how God often uses our greatest challenges to positively transform our lives.

 

John's triumph is beyond inspirational, and the witness of those who helped him along the way will change you forever! It is impossible to listen to this story without coming to a deeper understanding of what it means to fulfill the law of Christ as your heart cries out, "What more can I do?" Mary - Poplar Grove, IL

Following the presentation, Lighthouse Catholic Youth has provided a bonus segment from Fr. Mike that explains the topics of "Infant Baptism" and "No Salvation Outside the Church".

 

This is a talk for the New Evangelization. Father Mike packs it full of new expressions that open up everything, and powerfully draws us into the great mysteries of our faith. Wow! Seth - Laconia, NH

Jason has spoken about the Catholic Faith to more than one million people around the world and is the author of more than a dozen books, including Saint John Paul the Great, Pure Faith and If You Really Loved Me.

 

This is a powerful presentation that not only reminds us why we are catholic, but it also provides ways we can explain it to others who may ask us why! Mary - Lindstrom, MN

The Shot Heard 'Round the World

The Shot Heard 'Round the World

In this gripping presentation, Fr. Andrew Fisher narrates the assassination attempt of Saint John Paul the Great. The Shot Heard 'Round the World is the story of the suffering of Pope John Paul II, as well as Our Lady's intercession during this attempt on the Holy Father's life. Fr. Andrew Fisher is a native of Northern Virginia and a pastor in the Diocese of Arlington. 

 

It was interesting to learn more about the assination attempt on the Pope and the third secret. At the end it helps put more perspective of Our Lady in our life. Anne - Sydney, NSW

Dr. Timothy Gray is the president of the Augustine Institute and is a well-known Scripture scholar and Catholic speaker.

He aims to help us reclaim our Sunday from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives.

Dr. Steven Smith is a professor of Sacred Scripture at Mount Saint Mary's Seminary, in Emmitsburg, Maryland. Dr. Smith earned his Ph.D from Loyola University in Chicago, where he specialized in the study of the Gospels and their relationship to the Old Testament.

 

Incredible! Dr. Smith really covers all the little details regarding the Resurrection to prove what the faithful believes to be true. Joe - Mark Center, 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


Absolutely gripping story of an extraordinary Catholic explorer with an unbelievable faith, traversing wild untamed lands and actually surviving only by the bountiful grace of God! I was on the 'extreme' edge of my seat listening to this! Julie- Sterling, VA
"Absolutely fascinating!" Nancy - Warroad, MN
"Amazing story! A must listen for all." Mickey - Philadelphia, PA
It is so important for all of us to know the impact of our Catholic Faith in history… This is a must hear for all those studying the great explorers. All of history unfolds beautifully in light of the Faith! Julie - St. Petersburg, FL
History comes alive with shocking details of wonder and amazement Norm - Biloxi, MS
I had heard about this great story many years ago, while in South America. Years later I realized it was published in English; this is the first audio I have heard about this not heard enough historical adventure. Vincent - Cromwell, CT
This was a thoroughly interesting and informative talk. I've been trying to find a movie dvd about de Vaca but the prices for those available are prohibitive. John - Weimar, TX
Not only was this fascinating talk an exceptional piece of history of which most people are unaware, it is extraordinarily pertinent to our own times. That those focusing on their own ambitions were lost, that God is active in the direst situations, and acts powerfully through ordinary people is a clarion call for people everywhere to draw close to him. Jean - NC
This particular talk by Mr. Turner was particularly intriguing and interesting because of the non-fictional and historically accurate story of Cabeza de Vaca; particularly because he is a figure that one would never consider to research and/or learn about however the story was truly epic. My wife loved this talk as well; she really enjoyed the history and the story. Casey - Nashville, TN
