  1. The Book of Romans (25 Lessons)

    Commentary by Scott Hahn and Mark Shea - presented by Fr. Patrick Winslow

    The Book of Romans is dense and potentially imposing, but with years of experience under his belt, St. Paul wrote it for two simple reasons: encouragement and guidance.

    This epistle is so packed with theological wisdom that it influenced Christian theology more than anything else Paul ever wrote. In a fascinating 400+ verse exegesis, Scott Hahn, Mark Shea, and Fr. Patrick Winslow spare no expense in breaking down the rich ideas for you.

    In 28 detailed lessons, you will learn:

    -The difference between “hearers of the law” and “doers of the law”

    -What it means to be “under the power of sin,” and how to move past it

    -How Christ fulfilled the law and the prophets by his blood

    Don’t let its length fool you—this is one of the most powerful explorations of grace and the Christian life ever written, and anyone can share in its riches with a good guide. Let Scott Hahn, Mark Shea, and Fr. Winslow be that guide for you as you peer into the depths of Paul’s heart, which beat so much for Christ that he inspired a whole Church!

  2. Hebrews and James (28 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.

    James was devoted to the ultimate example of redemptive suffering, and encouraged his listeners to practice what they preached. This letter is a practical, no-nonsense guide to living out the Christian life on a daily basis.

    In 28 insightful lessons, you will learn:

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

    -The difference between trials and temptations, and how God uses them to save us

    -What a faithful Christian does in the face of disappointment and anger

    Let Hebrews and James both encourage you in the battle that our Lord fights with us. Scott Hahn, Mark Shea, Fr. Scott Courtney, and Fr. Mitch Pacwa will help you to see how we can fight with hope, even in our darkest days.

    Starting at: $46.95

  3. Exodus (28 Lessons)

    Commentary by Scott Hahn and Mark Shea - presented by Fr. Patrick Winslow

    Exodus is a gripping 1,200+ verse narrative, and one of the most famous ever told. Many of us have heard it since we were little children, but how often have we taken the time to study its chapters as our guiding light, the Church, understands them? Scott Hahn, Mark Shea, and Fr. Patrick Winslow are here to help you do just that. You will quickly discover a powerful tale of redemption and revelation that unquestionably earns its reputation.

    In 28 revealing lessons, you will learn:

    -What sacrament the Crossing of the Red Sea prefigures

    -Why we shouldn’t be afraid to study the Old Testament

    -How God responds to us when we try to run ahead of him

    In the Christian life, everyone is a pilgrim. What God told Moses thousands of years ago still applies to us today: God will fit us for our tasks. He will never ask us to do anything beyond our strength. Learn how the Israelites mirror our own struggles to accept this, and draw courage from God’s infinite faithfulness to all his children.

    Starting at: $46.95

  4. 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.

    Starting at: $29.95

  5. 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.

    Starting at: $29.95

  6. 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.

    Starting at: $22.95

  7. 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.

    Starting at: $29.95

  8. 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.

  9. 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!”

    Starting at: $12.95

  10. 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.
