+  Just the Facts: The Amazon Synod (2 segments)

  • Description: The Amazon Synod has drawn to a close. Many Catholics are confused and concerned about news that emerged from the Synod, but many others know little and care less about what happened. And ultimately, we won't know the real effects until Pope Francis publishes his own work on the results. We take a look at what we know and understand with Jimmy Akin.

    • Teaching with Authority: How to Cut Through Doctrinal Confusion & Understand What the Church Really Says

      Teaching with Authority is a unique, valuable, and long-overdue resource for all Catholics as well as those inquiring about the Faith. It will help deepen your understanding of what the Church teaches by showing you (maybe for the first time) how and why and where it does. Not another catechism or Catholicism for beginners book, Teaching with Authority isn t about understanding specific teachings of the Faith (even the complicated and misunderstood ones) but rather about understanding Catholic teaching itself. Where does the Church s teaching authority come from? How do we weigh dogmas versus practices, doctrines versus disciplines, conciliar declarations versus papal interviews? How do we sort through the many kinds of ecclesial documents and determine their relative authority and relevance? And, in an age when accusations of heresy fly regularly across social media, with competing sides eager to paint the other as unfaithful to Catholic tradition or to the current pope, Jimmy also tackles the issues of incredulity, apostasy, and schism showing you how to recognize different forms of dissent and respond to them fittingly.
