Happy Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel! Marcus Grodi and Jim Anderson in this special summer format, invite listeners to call in and ask Scripture questions, such as:

  • Is the theory of “Soul Sleep” true? What happens after the moment we die [Matthew 17: 1-5; Revelation 5:8; Luke 16:19-31; Luke 20:38/Mark 12:27; Matthew 22:32; Purgatory: 1 Corinthians 3: 15 and 2 Maccabees 39-46]
  • What is the source of the Didache?
  • Does Romans 4: 1-8 justify Sola Fide (Faith Alone)? [Romans 3: 27-31 & 4: 1-9]
  • Looking deeper into 2 Timothy 2: 11-14.

This week’s recommended reading: Where We Got the Bible… Our Debt to the Catholic Church by Henry G. Graham

A perennial favorite. This short treatise outlines the history of the Bible in complete, yet simple terms. Shows how the Catholic Church has determined and proclaimed through her infallible rulings just which books are actually part of Sacred Scripture, and how she has preserved and maintained the Bible throughout the centuries. A real eye-opener, especially for anyone who thinks the Bible is a Protestant book.
