Praise for Dianne Bergant
“Dianne is one of the most prolific authors and sought after speakers in the country.

Her ministry is not confined to academic presentations but extends to her calling others to a more mature life of faith and insight into the workings of God in the world of creation.”– Fr. Anthony J. Gittins, CSSp., Ph.D., Emeritus Professor of Theology and Culture, Catholic Theological Union
“Sister Dianne’s extensive knowledge of the Old Testament is matched only by her enthusiasm. A teacher of extraordinary insight and passion, Sister Dianne helps her students engage, interpret and understand the biblical text. If you can’t be in her classroom, then Now You Know Media is the next best way to be taught by Sister Dianne Bergant.”– Sr. Laurie Brink, O.P., Ph.D., Catholic Theological Union

  1. Rev. Joseph Benintende Oneonta, NY

    *

    Practical, insightful and challenging.

  2. Biagio

    I liked her presentation on the psalms.

    I liked her presentation on the psalms and how they are used in our tradition. Little is known on the psalms by most people in churches, so this is a great aid to their knowledge and prayer.

  3. Kathleen

    Absolutely enlightening!

    The Psalms, The Prayer of the Church has been absolutely enlightening. I pray the Liturgy of the Hours daily; I am praying the psalms in a new light. I do wish I would have had access to such powerful presentations at a younger time in my life. However, I am never too old to continue learning. Thanks for “Now You Know Media.”

  4. Madeline

    Learning in depths about the psalms is very appropriate and adds to my devotion.

    Since I pray the psalms every day in the Divine Office, learning in depths about the psalms is very appropriate and adds to my devotion.

  5. Dennis

    a well-balanced approach

    Diane gives a well-balanced approach to the Psalms based on Verbum Domini and is a wonderful presenter.

  6. Rev Thomas

    States her teaching in a down-to-earth way.

    Sister Dianne is very knowledgeable and states her teaching in a down-to-earth way.

  7. Gary

    Makes the Psalms come alive

    Dianne Bergant has a way of making the Psalms come alive. Very common sense, yet scholarly, presentation.
