Study Scripture with the Pope

Free Book of the Month

Scott Hahn is one of the most prominent Catholic authors and theologians of our time. A former Presbyterian minister, Hahn entered the Catholic Church in 1986 and has since become a bestselling author and respected professor of Scripture. “My work is about reading the Bible,” Hahn writes, “reading it with you, and reading it ‘from the heart of the Church.’”

In Covenant and Communion, Hahn offers a probing look at Benedict’s theology, providing a clear and concise introduction to the 265th pope’s life and work. Hahn argues that the heart of Benedict’s theology is salvation history and the Bible, and he shows how Benedict accepts historical criticism—but recognizes its limits. Examining how Benedict reads the overall narrative of Scripture, Hahn shows how Benedict puts it to work in theology, liturgy, and Christian discipleship. You can get it free this December.

Move from there to Hahn’s presentation of 1 and 2 Chronicles as a theological interpretation of Israel’s history, emphasizing the liturgical structure and content of Chronicles and providing fresh insight on salvation—past, present, and future. It’s yours this month for only $1.99.

Are you saved by faith or by works?

Free Book of the Month

The debate on the topic of faith and works has been long-standing and is arguably the pinnacle theological topic surrounding the issues that sparked the Protestant Reformation. For topics like this, there is nothing more valuable than going back to learn from the theological powerhouses of the days of the early church. St. Augustine is nearly unmatched in his ability to properly help us navigate such deep topics. Get this book for free, and gain a new understanding into this important topic.

From there you can then study Augustine’s treatise on the Sermon on the Mount. This work is certainly complementary to his study on faith and works, as the Sermon on the Mount shows us how the New Law that Jesus brought us was even more demanding than the Old Law, because the New Law requires us to love as God loves (Matthew 5:43-45).

Free Advent and Christmas Sermons!

Deepen your spiritual life with Sermons of St. Bernard on Advent and Christmas, free this month. St. Bernard of Clairvaux is a doctor of the church and speaks with wisdom and insight about the scriptures leading up to Christmas:

It is now fitting that we should consider the time of our Lord’s coming.
He came, as you know, not in the beginning, nor in the midst of time, but in the end of it. This was no unsuitable choice, but a truly wise dispensation of His infinite wisdom, that He might afford help when He saw it was most needed. Truly, “it was evening, and the day was far spent”(Lk 24:29); the sun of justice had wellnigh set, and but a faint ray of his light and heat remained on earth. The light of Divine knowledge was very small, and as iniquity abounded, the fervour of charity had grown cold. No angel appeared, no prophet spoke. The angelic vision and the prophetic spirit alike had passed away, both hopelessly baffled by the exceeding obduracy and obstinacy of mankind. Then it was that the Son of God said: “Behold, I come”(He 10:7). And “while all things were in quiet silence, and the night was in the midst of her course, the almighty word leaped down from heaven from thy royal throne” (Wi 18:14,15). Of this coming the Apostle speaks: “When the fullness of time was come, God sent his Son” (Ga 4:4) (Sermons 11-12).
