Item Description...
Overview
This exciting book shows that, far from straying from the Bible, Catholicism is eminently and thoroughly biblical. Indeed, Catholicism is the only Christian religion that is in full conformity with what the Bible clearly teaches. To demonstrate this, Catholic author Dave Armstrong ( a former Protestant campus missionary) focuses on those issues about which Catholics and Protestants disagree the most: the role of the Bible as a rule of faith, whether we are justified by faith alone, whether doctrine develops, what the Eucharist really is, veneration of Mary and prayer to the saints, the existence of purgatory, the role of penance in salvation, and the nature of infallibility of the papacy.

A biblical defense of the Catholic faith

This exciting book shows that, far from straying from the Bible, Catholicism is eminently and thoroughly biblical.

Indeed, Catholicism is the only Christian religion that is in full conformity with what the Bible clearly teaches.

To demonstrate this, Catholic author Dave Armstrong (a former Protestant campus missionary) focuses on those issues about which Catholics and Protestants disagree the most: the role of the Bible as a rule of faith, whether we are justified by faith alone, whether doctrine develops, what the Eucharist really is, veneration of Mary and prayer to the saints, the existence of purgatory, the role of penance in salvation, and the nature and infallibility of the papacy.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent  May 10, 2008
Very well written with lots of biblical verse references and a very good description of church history explaining why tradition is so important as well. The author being very knowledgeable in beliefs of various Protestant denominations and where their beliefs originated aids greatly in understanding some of the misunderstandings Protestants have about Catholic beliefs. I especially liked the sample "conversations/debates" between a Catholic and Protestant. Being part of an ecumenical study group, this text is a great reference and has helped me many times to quickly locate verses which Protestants seem to need so desperately since most prefer to completely ignore the long tradition and discoveries of the faith in the first one and a half millennia of the Christian Church after Paul.
 
It almost convinced me to convert  Dec 1, 2007
I love this book. I am a non-denominational charismatic born-again evangelical Christian. I was raised Catholic, and this book gave me some compelling insight into both my personal and religious heritage. This book, together with Scott Hahn's "Rome Sweet Home" almost convinced me to return to the Catholic Church. While I have instead remained Protestant, this book has inspired me to be become a bridge-builder to Historic Christianity, and has increased my understanding and admiration for Roman Catholicism.
 
So well-done I lent it out to a cousin... and haven't gotten it back.  Jun 20, 2007
Of all the recent books on Catholic apologetics, this is probably the best to begin with if you're a cradle Catholic (I'd recommend David Currie's "Born Fundamentalist, Born Again Catholic" for Protestant Christians). The reasoning is straight-forward, comprehensive, and covers a very high level of the topics discussed. I actually read this one straight through, starting about 10 at night and finishing about 5 in the morning. It's that good of a read!

It does not go as in-depth as, say, Paul Thigpen's "The Rapture Trap," but that's perfect for an introductory work. The chapters are not unforgivingly long nor unnecessarily complicated, which adds to the readability.

This book is the second-best way to convince my evangelical friends that Catholicism is a Christian faith. The easiest way would be to have them go to a Mass, but that's next to impossible.
 
this is "the" book  May 15, 2007
This is probably one of the best books written on Catholicism apologetics I have ever had access to. Dave Armstrong walks us through many different crucial points to the Catholic faith always making a remarkably fine point at last.
It is hard to not get out on the street and start debating with "Bible-owner" protestants after reading such a wonderful argumentation.

I recommend it. It is an excellent cover-to-cover reading as well as reference book for further studies.
 
Solid and Compelling  Jan 22, 2007
This is a solid intro to Catholic apologetics, with a focus on lucid explanations of what the Church teaches and arguments for her biblical roots.

One of the aspects of this book I appreciated is the authors exegetical method: Instead of just asserting that certain biblical passages absolutely teach doctrine X, a case is made for its relative probability, often compared to protestant views.

One of the weaknesses is the book's reliance on long quotes from Catholic luminaries like James Cardinal Gibbons and John Cardinal Newman. While these explanations are impressive, I'd prefer to read them in their own contexts.
