Catholicism: The New Evangelization by Brandon Vogt & Peggy Pandaleon, based on the documentary created by Bishop Robert Barron.

The Catholic Faith is not about myths or legends, symbols or literary devices. It is an encounter with Jesus Christ. Throughout history, the call of Christ has sent people to the corners of the earth with a message of great joy; a message that has built civilizations, inspired cultures, and even sent some to prisons or their graves. We have the same call: sharing the New Evangelization. This documentary series from Bishop Barron’s Word on Fire continues the story of CATHOLICISM, exploring the Church’s mission and the challenges of contemporary culture. In the original CATHOLICISM series, Bishop Barron took us on a journey around the world and deep into the Faith. Now, experience this Faith in action in CATHOLICISM: The New Evangelization. This 90-minute film defines the “New Evangelization" and takes us on a fascinating tour to witness examples of new ardor, new expressions, and new methods of evangelization in action.

David the King by Bishop Robert Barron, written by Dr. Jacob Wood.

David is the paradigmatic king in the Old Testament. His kingship recalls that of Adam in the Garden of Eden, and yet it points toward the King par excellence, Jesus Christ. In David the King, Bishop Barron helps us to understand this pivotal figure in light of the first king and the King of kings. Adam was the first king and steward of the rightly ordered Garden of Eden. He was called to govern the garden according to God’s mind and purpose, but by allowing negative influences to wreak havoc on Eden, he did not fulfill his kingly responsibility. Long after Adam, David emerged as the definitive king who would restore order in the Garden and bring the world under the lordship of God. But like Adam, David fell, and his reign ushered in a succession of compromised kings and rejected prophets. The New Testament, however, foretold a son of David who would realize the fullness of Israelite kingship...but whose actual reign defied expectation. King David causes us to look back toward Adam’s kingship and forward toward Christ the King, seeing Christ as the fulfillment of the Davidic line and the realization of the Kingdom of God on earth.

Eucharist: Sacred Meal, Sacrifice, Real Presence by Bishop Robert Barron

Bishop Barron offers inspiring insights into the mystery of Christ's presence in our lives and the centrality of the Eucharist as an important part of that presence. So many believers do not understand the Eucharist, which Vatican II said is the “source and summit of the Christian life.” This fresh look at the Eucharist brings to light its reality as sacred meal, the sacrifice necessary for communion with God, and the real presence of Christ.

Priest, Prophet, King by Bishop Robert Baron, written by Carl Olson and Peggy Pandaleon

Who was Jesus, this itinerant preacher whom many called the Messiah?

Using biblical insights and engaging stories, Bishop Barron affirms that we see Jesus most clearly through the lens of the Old Testament. Through the presentation of Priest, Prophet, King, you will better understand Jesus, become more familiar with Scripture, and realize your own priestly, prophetic, and kingly mission.

Seven Deadly Sins, Seven Lively Virtues by Bishop Robert Barron

Join Bishop Robert Barron for this engaging presentation concerning the seven deadly sins, those great spiritual blocks that inhibit our flourishing in relationship with God and one another. Based on Dante’s writings, the seven deadly sins correspond to the seven levels of Dante’s Mt. Purgatory.  Pride, Envy, Anger, Sloth, Gluttony, Avarice, and Lust are all presented as patterns of dysfunction within us that lead to unhappiness. However, Bishop Barron shows us how to counteract these seven sinful patterns through a conscious process of opposition, which are the “seven lively virtues." The seven lively virtues offer antidotes to each sin and help set us on the right path to healing and happiness.

BIBLE STUDY

Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom by Jeff Cavins and Sarah Christmyer

Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom is a rich Bible study that shows how the Church, the Kingdom of Heaven on earth, is empowered by the Holy Spirit to continue the work of Christ in the world. The book of Acts portrays the Church as teaching, preaching, and healing in the same way that Jesus did. It follows the journeys of the apostles as they preach the Good News and expand the Kingdom of Heaven throughout the earth. The Acts of the Apostles also provides an historic framework for understanding the rest of the New Testament.

Exodus: Call to Freedom by Tim Gray and Scott Powell

The Exodus can be viewed as the defining moment in Israel's history, for it was then that God called Israel out of slavery in Egypt and to a life of freedom as His people. Exodus: Called to Freedom looks through the lens of Christ and the Church to show that, more than just seeking to free His people from the domination of Pharaoh, God desired to free His people from the far more sinister tyranny of sin, so they could live the authentic freedom that belongs to children of God. Because of this, the Exodus story is not just Israel's story, it is our story as well; it tells us who God is and what He calls us to be.

First Corinthians: The Church and the Christian Community by Tim Gray

The conflicts of the early Christians in Corinth are in many ways similar to our struggles today as Christians. With divisions, immorality, persecution, and other trials of the faithful, the message of St. Paul to the Corinthians is a much-needed message for our own times. First Corinthians: The Church and the Christian Community explores the key elements that the apostle Paul introduced to a new and growing Church. St. Paul taught the Corinthians about the nature of grace and the Church as the Body of Christ. In addition, he introduced the Corinthian Christians to the most powerful gift of all, the Eucharist.

Follow Me invites you to experience the joy of a renewed friendship with Christ. You will: learn what it takes to follow Christ; discover the joy of divine friendship; see how God, and only God, can satisfy the deepest desires of your heart.

The Prophets: Messengers of God’s Mercy by Thomas Smith and Sarah Christmyer

If we consider that God is the Divine Bridegroom and the Church is his Bride, then the prophets can be seen as “spiritual marriage counselors.” They afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted, calling us to return to our covenant relationship with God. They urge us to repentance, warn us of the dangers of sin, and announce the blessings of faithfulness. Their prophetic words speak to us even today, as they draw us closer to our heavenly Bridegroom, and show us how to share him with others.

Psalms: School of Prayer by Jeff Cavins, Sarah Christmyer and Tim Gray

With Psalms: The School of Prayer, The Great Adventure moves from telling the Story to making it personal. While the historical books of the Bible recount God's creative and redemptive acts in history, the Psalms reveal Israel's response to God's covenant offer and serve as a model for our response to Him. Indeed, one could say that the historical books tell the "outside" of the story of Israel by giving an historical perspective, while the Psalms tell the "inside" story, which comes from the deeply personal perspective of one who is seeking God. Our communication with God is enhanced by a deeper understanding of the book of Psalms and of the individual psalms that reside in each of our hearts.

Here you will discover what the mysterious figures and images of Revelation mean. You will see how Revelation is more than an apocalyptic vision of the "end times." It is a revelation of God as our Divine Bridegroom and the Church as his spotless Bride, forever united in a heavenly, holy, and mystical marriage that we enter into every time we celebrate the Mass.

TEEN BIBLE STUDY

The Teen Timeline by Mark Hart

The Teen Timeline —or T3— is the teen version of the revolutionary Great Adventure Bible Timeline learning system that hundreds of thousands of Catholic adults have used to learn the Bible. Dynamic teen presenter Mark Hart makes the Bible come alive for Catholic teens by unpacking God’s Word in a way they can relate to. T3 teaches teens the Bible by showing them the “big picture” of salvation history. When young students of the Bible first understand the “story,” they are eager to learn more. The net result: teens begin to wrap their minds and hearts around the Scriptures. They come to see the Bible as a relevant part of their lives.

T3: Revelation – The Lion and the Lamb by Mark Hart

The book of Revelation has captured the interest of modern adults and teens alike. With all that has been written and sensationalized in recent novels and films, this has become the most talked about (and most misunderstood) book in Sacred Scripture. But what exactly does our Church teach about this seemingly “cryptic” book of the Bible and how in the world do we begin to break open something so complex with our Catholic teenagers? T3 Revelation: The Lion and the Lamb unpacks the myths about Revelation, the end times, the mark of the beast, and so much more. T3 Revelation gives your teens an invaluable foundation for understanding the book of Revelation, while pointing out its modern significance, practical application, and daily relevance to a teenager’s life. In each of the four lessons, Mark skillfully unpacks the book’s main points and key chapters, while continually referring to the wisdom offered by our Catholic faith.

Catholicism: The New Evangelization by Brandon Vogt & Peggy Pandaleon, based on the documentary created by Bishop Barron.

The Catholic Faith is not about myths or legends, symbols or literary devices. It is an encounter with Jesus Christ. Throughout history, the call of Christ has sent people to the corners of the earth with a message of great joy; a message that has built civilizations, inspired cultures, and even sent some to prisons or their graves. We have the same call: sharing the New Evangelization. This documentary series from Bishop Barron’s Word on Fire continues the story of CATHOLICISM, exploring the Church’s mission and the challenges of contemporary culture. In the original CATHOLICISM series, Bishop Barron took us on a journey around the world and deep into the Faith. Now, experience this Faith in action in CATHOLICISM: The New Evangelization. This 90-minute film defines the “New Evangelization" and takes us on a fascinating tour to witness examples of new ardor, new expressions, and new methods of evangelization in action.

Decision Point by Dynamic Catholic

Most young Catholics are disengaged. Engaging them is therefore the first step. Until they are engaged it doesn’t matter how much information you download on them; they simply will not absorb it and make it their own. There are many programs that faithfully present the teachings of the Church. But that alone is not enough. While presenting the Church’s teachings faithfully is essential, it is also critically important that they be presented in ways that are engaging, accessible, and relevant. This is the process Dynamic Catholic worked through to develop this engaging, robust workbook. This is not just any other book. One look at it Dynamic Catholic hopes you can see this. The hope is that Confirmation Candidates will treasure this workbook and make it their own. They have created plenty of space for them to write all over this book and use the journal pages to jot down their personal thoughts and experiences as they prepare for their Confirmation day.
