Now You Know Media

I am not sure how many of you are aware of Now You Know Media, but I plan to do some reviews of their recordings over the next few months.  I was first introduced to Now You Know Media while flipping through an edition of First Things.  There was an ad there for receiving Fr. Donald Senior's audio recording study on the Gospel of John at a great introductory price.  I decided to purchase it and found it to be a great 12 lecture walk through John.  The production quality was high and Fr. Senior's theological and pastoral explanations I ended up using in my own teaching.  Many of the conferences are more on the academic side.  In particular, those of you who are familiar with the scholars involved with books like The Catholic Study Bible or the commentaries from Little Rock will find some familiar faces.  There are a ton of conferences devoted to Scripture, with scholars like Fr. Senior, Fr. Felix Just, Sr. Dianne Bergant, Fr. Michael D. Guinan, Fr. Ron Witherup, as well as many others.  Many of these scholars are the most highly respected in their academic fields, but, perhaps, less known by contemporary Catholic audiences.  

There are also collections focusing on spirituality, history, and theology.  I have enjoyed each set that I have received and, like I said above, plan to devote some future posts, including reviews, about what they are doing at Now You Know Media.
