+  The Meaning of the Immaculate Conception (full hour)

  • Description: For many Protestants, the Immaculate Conception is the most contested of the  Marian dogmas. Yet there is ample Biblical and historical evidence to support the teaching that Mary was conceived without sin. Tim Staples joins us to present the defense of this dogma.

    • Behold Your Mother – A Biblical and Historical Defense of the Marian Doctrines

      From the cross Jesus gave us his mother to be our mother, too: a singularly holy model, consoler, and intercessor for our spiritual journey. Yet most Protestants and too many Catholics don't understand the role that God wants her to play in our lives. In Behold Your Mother, Tim Staples takes you through the Church s teachings about the Blessed Virgin Mary, showing their firm Scriptural and historical roots and dismantling the objections of those who mistakenly believe that Mary competes for the attention due Christ alone. Combining the best recent scholarship with a converts in-depth knowledge of the arguments, Staples has assembled the most thorough and useful Marian apologetic you'll find anywhere. He also shows how all the Marian doctrines are relevant even essential to a salvific faith in Jesus. From her divine maternity to her perpetual virginity, from her Immaculate Conception to her Assumption, the Church's core teachings about Mary are intertwined with the mysteries of Christ. In a word, Mary matters. Read Behold Your Mother and find out just how much. (learn more)
