  1. Angels Throughout the Ages (15 Lessons)

    We hear Scripture readings that tell stories of angelic interventions in history. There's a flip side, of course, to the angels. There are also the demons.
    In these lessons, we're going to meet some of the angels and demons featured in the Bible as distinct spiritual persons, with names and identities. We'll treat them like real people we would actually meet in our lives, because that's how they're portrayed in the Bible. 

    Who are they? What do they do? And what do their names teach us about who they are?

    Angels Throughout the Ages is a fascinating study on many types of angels, including the fallen angels (demons), and the three Archangels. Some of these sessions cover demons and their evil effects in the world. Entertaining Angels is the best choice to study the good Angels. All teaching is biblically based from the Catholic perspective.

  2. Hebrews (16 Lessons)

    Commentary by Scott Hahn and Mark Shea - presented by Fr. Mitch Pacwa

    Hebrews is a masterfully-written work with a fascinating point: the New Covenant of Jesus Christ perfectly fulfills the Old. Even more impressive, however, is the fact that only the New Covenant can free us from sin. The news was so shocking—and so radical—that it literally shook the world, beginning with an earthquake at Calvary, and thundering down to us thousands of years later.

    Scott Hahn, Mark Shea, and Fr. Mitch Pacwa take you through the clear, prudent chapters that make up this theologically piercing letter.

    In 16 powerful lessons, you will learn:

    -Why the New Covenant fulfills, without destroying, the Old

    -How Jesus relates to and surpasses the angels

    -What it means to be a priest “in the line of Melchizedek”

    How often do we think of the crushing sacrifices made by the first Christians to preserve and guard our faith? Hebrews is a glowing testament to their valiant witness. Let these chapters inspire you to be a little bolder in your own witness every day.

  3. The Book of Joshua (13 Lessons)

    Commentary by Steve Ray - presented by Fr. Scott Courtney

    Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the constant challenges of daily life? Do you struggle to “let go and let God?”

    We all need role models to encourage us through the mess that daily life can become. Joshua was no stranger to this challenge—especially when charged with picking up where Moses left off, and leading the Israelites with prudence and patience.

    In the Book of Joshua, through a detailed exegesis of 650+ verses, Steve Ray and Fr. Scott Courtney are committed to showing you how completely Joshua trusted in God. Even while faced with severe setbacks, not once did this prophet doubt that God knew exactly what he was doing.

    In 13 bracing lessons, you will learn:

    -How the crossing of the Red Sea prefigures an essential sacrament

    -What “typology” means, and how it synthesizes the Old and New Testaments

    -That we were slaves, just like the Israelites, until a new Joshua came to sever our chains

    Trust and perseverance are the two virtues you will see most powerfully demonstrated in Joshua. Let his example of constant hope encourage you to leave more of your worries in God’s capable hands.

  4. 1st Corinthians (16 Lessons)

    Commentary by Steve Ray - presented by Fr. Patrick Winslow

    1st and 2nd Corinthians are two of the most beautiful and heart-wrenching epistles Paul ever wrote. They reveal that Paul’s life, and the life of every Christian, is never easy. As you will discover, however, he never stopped fighting for unity and charity to his last breath.

    In the first letter, his concerns are very practical, as he helps the Corinthians confront and overcome their constant spiritual struggles.

    By the time the second letter is finished, much has changed, and Paul is a victim of slander. Steve Ray and Fr. Patrick Winslow return to guide you through this intimate, heartbreaking letter.

    In 28 lessons and 650+ verses combined in these two letters, you will learn:

    -What it really means to be a temple of the Holy Spirit
    -How knowledge affects us vs. how love affects us
    -What to do when you feel tempted beyond your strength

    Both of these letters were penned in hardship, but St. Paul’s immense kindness and virtues flow through each one. Let Steve Ray and Fr. Winslow help you explore the contents of his loving heart, and feel your own heart surge with the same charity he died for.

  5. Amos (6 Lessons)

    Commentary by Cindy Morales

    Have you ever wondered what it was like to be a prophet in the days of the Old Testament? The answer is pretty simple: being a prophet was a divine challenge, and their speeches all shared a common theme: “Repent, and be faithful to God as he is faithful to you!”

    The main theme in the Book of Amos is social justice, and the titular prophet spares no expense in calling out the Israelites for their mistreatment of the poor and stunning neglect of God’s law. Cindy Morales is your guide on this enlightening, 9-chapter journey of judgment, which is a judgment based not on revenge, but rather on God’s enduring love.

    In 6 well-researched lessons, you will learn:

    -How being chosen by God is a responsibility, not a privilege

    -What happens to those who neglect the poor

    -How God mourns for sinners like a rejected suitor for his intended bride

    Amos is famously full of “woes.” However, this book ends on a note of hope: Amos describes the magnificent Day of the Lord, on which there will be ultimate salvation for the righteous. Dive into the powerful prophecies within this book, and feel your heart burn with renewed commitment for authentic social justice.

  6. Humanae Vitae (4 Lessons)

    Commentary by Cindy Morales

    Marriage is under attack. The encyclical Humanae Vitae has never been more relevant than it is today. Released in 1968 by the fearless Pope Paul VI, it was immediately controversial, even though it reaffirmed constant Church teaching. The 31 paragraphs within concern the sanctity of marriage and of human life itself, but today, many Catholics ignore this outright in favor of convenience.

    What they fail to realize, as you will discover in this study, is how much happier their marriages and families would be if they simply trusted the words of Christ and his bride, the Church. Cindy Morales takes you step-by-step through all of Humanae Vitae, revealing its unappreciated beauty.

    In 4 comprehensive lessons, you will learn:

    -How Pope St. John Paul II built on this encyclical in his Theology of the Body

    -Why total self-giving is the key to a happy, peaceful marriage

    -The four elements of authentic love: Freedom, Totality, Faithfulness, and Fruitfulness

    Since the 1960s especially, we have seen a heartbreaking degradation of marriage, the family, and the marital act itself. The Catholic Church understands that human sexuality is sacred and signifies the love of God. The Church follows Christ in saying: “True love is why you exist. God loves you more than any two people ever could. He wants you to bring the delight of this love out to others, just as he did for you on the cross!”

  7. This Sacred Council: Exploring the Documents of the Second Vatican Council

    CSS is pleased to bring you this short study series exploring the documents of the Second Vatican Council. Most Catholics are familiar with Vatican II and have likely heard the phrase, "…in the spirit of Vatican II…". However, few Catholics have actually read the documents. Consequently, the "Spirit of Vatican II" has come to mean many different things depending upon the source. We encourage all Catholics to take the time to study these important documents for themselves to discover the ideas that accurately reflect the Council teachings.

    Starting at: $10.95

  8. The Acts of the Apostles (28 Lessons)

    Commentary by Steve Ray - presented by Fr. Patrick Winslow

    The Acts of the Apostles is the first history of the Church, and as such, merits a study as careful as it is well-researched. Luke’s motive in writing this book was very simple: to defend and teach the new faith in a beautiful work of apologetics.

    Steve Ray and Fr. Patrick Winslow are your guides on this 1,000+ verse journey into the hearts and minds of the early Christians. Harmonizing history, theology, and eternal truth, St. Luke’s witness is a stirring invitation to follow the one he followed—the one who brought death to its knees.

    In 28 comprehensive lessons, you will learn:

    -How the Apostles’ message of repentance is just as vital for us today

    -Why the Church was able to survive brutal, constant persecutions

    -How we can be filled with the same Holy Spirit that inspired Peter, Paul, and all the early Christians

    The Acts of the Apostles are the acts of those with hearts on fire. We are called to the same fearless love, no matter what challenges or persecutions come our way. Let Steve Ray and Fr. Winslow unpack this story of hope for you, and let your heart beat with the same fervor that inspired the first Christians.

    Starting at: $46.95
