Fresh from an extensive trip to the Holy Land, popular Catholic author Stephen K. Ray visited key sites in Israel, Greece, Turkey, Egypt and more to uncover the unexplained mysteries at the heart of the ancient history of the Church. What he discovered are fascinating Biblical insights into three of the most important and controversial figures in the history of salvation: Abraham, Peter, and the Blessed Virgin Mary. Having studied their lives in depth, both from the Scriptures and from "walking where they walked" Steve brings many exciting discoveries to this remarkable new set.
Throughout Three Controversial People: Abraham, Peter, and Mary, Steve Ray emphasizes that unless we understand the innate "Jewishness" of Christianity, and our own Old Testament roots, we will never fully understand our Faith, the Church or even salvation itself. We won't have a full appreciation of the priesthood and the authority of the Pope; we won't even fully understand baptism. Because all these things are rooted, not merely in the early Church, but 2000 years before that, rooted in Abraham,he Patriarchs, and the nation of Israel.
You're sure to be swept up in Steve's infectious enthusiasm for the great faith of Abraham who quickly answered when God called him at the age of 75 to leave everything he had ever known. Here we face the challenge of what our own response might have been and learn of the deep debt of gratitude each Christian should feel for the "Father of our Faith." Following the Biblical narrative, you'll discover the important implications of Abraham's inspiring example of belief, trust, and obedience for our lives today.
In his next talk, Steve offers first hand insight into the places Peter lived, worked, and preached. In this riveting presentation you'll explore the deep Catholic significance of the Biblical terms of "the rock, the keys, and the chair." You'll share Steve's impressive wealth of insights into the life of the first pope, including a particularly fascinating study into the awesome significance of Caesarea Philippi, where Jesus appointed Peter the new shepherd of his flock.
Moving from the Old Testament to the New, Steve illustrates the connections between the role of royal steward of an earthly kingdom and Peter's role as the keeper of the keys of heaven as well as the parallels between the all-important "Seat of Moses" and the new "Chair of Peter."
In the final tape, Steve brings to life the young Jewish girl who would become the Mother of God. Describing her daily life with Jesus and Joseph and her most vital role in our lives and the life of the Church, he reveals how the young girl on a donkey from the story of the Nativity, is also the woman clothed with the sun from the prophecy of St. John's Apocalypse.
Having visited the traditional sites where Mary lived with St. John after the Resurrection (and was revered, even in her own lifetime) Steve Ray brings rare insights into her unique and irreplaceable role in the history of salvation.
Steve's intense love for our Blessed Mother, the Bible and the Catholic Church, shines forth in every word of this appealing new set. Order today and get to know Three of the Most Controversial People in the Bible!
