The Book of Hebrews stresses that Jesus Christ is the true sacrificial lamb who shed His blood for us and freed us from sin. While the Epistle of James challenges followers of Christ not to just "talk the talk" but to "walk the walk".
Together these two books will enrich your understanding of Christ and lead you to a closer relationship with Him
Exodus is an amazingly eye-opening book, especially for Catholics! With this 28 lesson Exodus study from Dr. Scott Hahn and Mark Shea, learn how the Eucharist is prefigured by the Passover; the symbolism of the parting of the Red Sea and more. This book has it all: murder, betrayal, plagues, idolatry, miracles. And it's all true! Best of all, it is life-changing! it is the Word of God.
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.
Hebrews is written to Jewish converts, who, because of persecutions, as well as fear and doubts about their Christian faith, are tempted to revert back to traditional Judaism and its Temple-centered worship.
The Book of Hebrews stresses that Jesus Christ is the true sacrificial lamb who shed His blood for us and freed us from sin.

- In 1968 Pope Paul VI issued an encyclical on the regulation of birth called, in Latin, Humanae Vitae. This document was very controversial since many people were apparently expecting the Catholic Church to change her teaching and accept birth control. Of course, the Church did NOT do this. In this study, you will see how the Holy Father's words concerning the consequences of accepting birth control turned out to be prophetic. This book has four chapters/lessons and includes answers.

- 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.
