Stunned by Scripture

Stunned by ScriptureThe Pope, devotion to Mary, confession … just where are these topics in the Bible? Why does the Catholic Church seem to focus on so many things that aren’t Scriptural?

Or so thought former Protestant pastor John Bergsma.

Stunned by Scripture: How the Bible Made Me Catholic is an engaging examination of the things Dr. Bergsma once considered obstacles to ever becoming Catholic himself. Over an eighteen-month spiritual journey, Bergsma was stunned again and again by the biblical support he found for even the stickiest teachings of the Catholic Church.

Weaving his personal story into clear explanations of Catholic teachings as found in Scripture, Dr. Bergsma explores seven key Catholic doctrines, including:

  • The Pope
  • Devotion to Mary
  • Confession
  • The Eucharist
  • The priesthood
  • Belief in the Bible alone
  • Salvation by faith alone theologies

Stunned by Scripture will help Catholics understand, defend, and explain the biblical basis for the Faith and show them how the Bible solidly supports even the most frequently misunderstood Catholic teachings.

 

Devotional Journey into the Mass

Devotional Journey into the MassIf you’re unhappy because the Mass has become for you routine – or even boring and tedious – these pages are for you. They teach you eight simple ways to make your every Mass a joyful time of piety and intense devotion.

Explaining the spiritual meanings behind the signs and symbols, words and actions of the Mass, author Christopher Carstens teaches you spiritually-enriching ways to enter the church building, make the Sign of the Cross, pray the Opening Prayer, listen to the Readings, prepare your soul at the Offertory, participate in the Eucharistic Prayer, receive Communion, and even respond to the Dismissal.

Soon – with the help of author Carstens wise suggestions – you will be surprised to find each Eucharistic Celebration a fountain of peace for you, a profound refreshment for your soul.

Among other things you’ll learn from these pages:

  • The meaning of the “sacramental principle”: if you don’t understand it, then Mass is almost surely flat for you
  • How each element of the Liturgy has a sacramental quality about it, and can be for you a grace-filled encounter with Jesus
  • How to transform your prayers at Mass into a conversation with God
  • Why silence – both within the liturgy and outside of it – is a necessary element of that conversation with God
  • There’s a proper spiritual way to make the Sign of the Cross (do you know what it is?)
  • How the Creed can be for you the highpoint of the Liturgy of the Word
  • Why, during the collection, you should also explicitly offer Christ your heart
  • The best way in the Mass to participate in Jesus’ saving work: do you know what it is?
  • What you should desire in order to receive the Eucharist most efficaciously (and what that desire presupposes in you)
  • Coming and going through the church doors: what, each time, it should mean for you spiritually

Plus, at the end of each chapter, a list of action items for the next time you go to Mass, and much, much more to awaken in you the bright spirit of joyful devotion that we are all called to have at Mass.

 

Finally, if you’re able to make a gift of $500 or more, we’d also like to send you something very special . . . 

 

LECTIO: Prayer

LECTIO: Prayer (Participant Kit)Though prayer is one of the essentials of a thriving faith, we often feel as if we’re talking to ourselves. Or, worse, we feel like we’re talking to no one at all. How can something so vital to the faith be so elusive?

Now, the mystery of prayer is made clear through the engaging teaching and cinematic artistry of the Augustine Institute in Prayer: Finding Intimacy with God. In six sessions on three DVDs, renowned speaker Dr. Tim Gray masterfully uses the ancient Church's tradition of lectio divina to show you the simple steps for making prayer an effort of love and intimacy with God. Essential and accessible, this new Lectio series is ideal for personal faith formation and small group study.

Episode Listing:
1. Prayer: An Intimate Dialogue
2. Guigo’s Ladder: A Way of Ascent
3. Lectio and Meditatio: Climbing the First Rungs
4. Oratio: Conversation with God
5. Contemplatio: The Gaze of Love
6. Resolutio: Putting Love into Action

Beautifully and thoughtfully crafted, the personal Study Guide leads you further into the study of prayer and provides you with over 100 pages of incredible content.

We'll also send you the accompanying study guide. Features of the Lectio Prayer Study Guide include:
• six sessions that make the mystery of prayer clearer than ever before
• an outline summary of each video presentation
• practical tips for including lectio divina in your prayer life
• insights and information for deeper understanding
• guided reflections for each session to make the study your own throughout the week
• space for personal journaling in each session
