Why Believe? Volume 2
  • Go and Sin No More

    Episode 1

    A host of speakers reflect on God’s mercy as it is revealed in the story of the woman caught in adultery (Jn 8). We encounter this love in a powerful way in the sacrament of Confession, where we are empowered by God’s grace to “go, and sin no more."

  • Why Love Has Rules

    Episode 2

    Dr. Edward Sri considers why God gives us a moral law and how it helps us to reach our telos (“end,” “purpose”).

  • Dumb Sheep

    Episode 3

    Based on his own experience growing up on a farm, Jim Beckman unpacks the Biblical image of Christ the Good Shepherd and his disciples as the sheep who know his voice.
