On Good Friday, 1979, a television crew visited St. Agnes Church in New York to tape a news piece. They were so enthralled by the speaker, Bishop Fulton J. Sheen, they taped his entire talk. This long lost tape has now been found and digitally remastered. It is titled "His Last Words." Bishop Sheen died later that year. This is the Bishop at his best: in a pulpit, not a TV studio. It is a new Sheen experience seen here for the first time. The Bishop's wit and wisdom transcend the years. His words remain a masterpiece of sacred prose and poetry.

The Book of Genesis is the book of beginnings. It sets the scene for everything in the whole Bible. In this book we learn about the creation of everything, the visible and the invisible. We discover how the universe was created. Genesis also teaches us where evil came from, explains the presence of pain, suffering and death in the world, and clearly reveals the solutions to these problems.
In the book of I Peter, the apostle Peter encourages suffering and persecuted Christians to remain loyal to Christ. He calls us to live holy lives, looking to Christ as our example. Jesus has shown the pattern of suffering first, then glory later. Therefore we can endure trials now because our eyes are fixed on our future hope. Peter explains how believers should live during difficult times and outlines the right attitude to have about persecution.
II Timothy is possibly the very last letter that the great apostle Paul ever wrote. We come to the end of the thrilling life of a man who had served Jesus with all his heart, mind, soul and strength. It is clear that this letter was written when Paul was a prisoner. What would be his final instruction to the Church?
God's passion for evangelism is so much greater than ours. Yet, the Lord insists on reaching the world through His people. The book of Jonah is the story of the success of God the Evangelist even through His unfaithful people. Throughout this book, we see how the Lord prepares Jonah for the task and how Jonah learns of his own need for the Lord in his affliction. Bundled with 47 page study guide.
The book of Ephesians is the most thorough and wide-ranging account of what it means to be the Church, in the New Testament. The Ephesian Christians lived in the shadow of the massive temple to Artemis, as we read in Acts 19. That 'wonder of the ancient world' must have dominated not only the skyline but also the thinking of the city. Ephesus was a city full of spiritual darkness and occult power.

The letter of Philippians was written by Paul while he was in prison in Rome in about AD 63, but there is no bitterness or disillusionment here. In this letter, Paul opens his heart to us, showing us the secret to real contentment.

The book of Psalms is constructed and arranged in a brilliant way, and the sequence of Psalms covered in these programs is one of the most fascinating in the entire book. DVD comes with 53 page study guide.
