Catholic Scripture Study International was founded in 2003 and publishes more than 30 Bible and faith-related study programs.

In his Letters to the Corinthians Paul addresses ongoing problems including dissension, immorality, lawsuits, liturgical abuses and their tendency to fall prey to "false teachers". Paul tackles each of these problems with his typical spiritual zeal, strengthening their faith and commitment to build up the Body of Christ.
Two thousand years later, as we struggle with much the same problems, Paul's words of wisdom are both pertinent and valuable!
The last book of the New Testament is also probably the most difficult and misunderstood book of the Bible. This is due to the fact that almost everything described in Saint John’s vision is symbolic of something else. The Early Church Fathers believed that the Book of Revelation was an icon of the Mass. The Book of Revelation is a 20 lesson study (commentary and video) with a 5-week supplemental study (commentary only) on Carl Olson's book, Will Catholics Be Left Behind?
Discover the beauty that unfolds each time we celebrate the Marriage Feast of the Lamb!
Every Sunday Roman Catholics (like many other Christians) stand to profess our faith in God who created "all things visible and invisible." and we confess our sins the presence of "all the angels and saints."
Discover that angels are spiritual, personal, and immortal creatures, with intelligence and freewill, who glorifies God without ceasing and who serves God as a messenger of His saving plan!

- 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.
