Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great handbook for Catholics  Dec 28, 2006
Patrick Madrid is one of the best Catholic apologists in the country. This book is an excellent handbook for Catholics who are put on the defensive by co-workers, relatives and friends who believe many Catholic doctrines have no support in the Bible. Beyond the usual issues such as Purgatory and confession to a priest, other topics such as the divinity of Christ and the Blessed Trinity are also treated (helpful in conversations with Jehovah Witnesses). This book should give Catholics confidence that the Bible is a CATHOLIC book, and it should also help open-minded Christians appreciate the Biblical basis for many Catholic/Christian doctrinal and moral teachings.
 
Using the Bible to drive doctrine...  Nov 18, 2006
I thank Patrick Madrid for a free copy of this book. Forgive for not fulfilling the request, "We encourage to post your favorable comments..." For we are taught by St. Paul that there will be a time men will not put up with sound doctrine (2 Tim 4:3). So, it's important to for all of us to test what the author has written.

It's very important that we do not force our doctrine upon the Bible but rather allow the Word to create our doctrine. For example, if I wanted to believe that being wealthy is what God wants for all Christians, I could find verses to substantiate it but it's contrary to what the Bible emphasizes - Timothy & Hebrews teach us to be content with what we have. So, how does this book apply the Bible?

The last line of the last chapter reads, "And this is why we ask those in heaven to pray for us (1 Timothy 2:1-5)." Let's look at his reference The Douay-Rheims Bible, a favorite among Catholic doctrinal scholars, vs. 1, "I desire therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions and thanksgivings be made for all men:" and the last verse, vs 5, "For there is one God: and one mediator of God and men, the man Christ Jesus:"

The 1st verse tells the Bible reader that prayers should be made for all men. The book of 1 Tim is instruction on how to establish and run the church. So the church should pray for all people. The last verse refers to the only person that can mediate between God and man - Jesus. The error that the book made to justify doctrine is the statement "those in heaven." Correctly written would have been simply, "Jesus." This verse does not refer to "those in heaven" but only one. It was not a slip but intentional usage of a misuse of a verse to push a doctrinal position.

Unfortunately, the book is filled with many such examples. I would passionately recommend not reading this book but if you do, consider reading another book for balance titled, "Preparing Catholics for Eternity" by Mike Gendron.
 
Apostolic tradition  Nov 6, 2006
The author calls into question popular biblical interpretations on issues such as End Times theology and apocryphal texts. Whether one agrees or not the arguments are well stated and thought provoking. I recommend it.
 
Scripture Based Answers to Thorny Questions  Sep 14, 2006
In his new book Madrid, a popular author and EWTN regular, examines 46 specific questions about Catholic practice and belief often raised by Protestants. He provides answers with supporting quotations from the bible and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The questions address Church practices, as confessing to a priest, praying the rosary, and baptizing infants, as well as public issues, as whether it is sinful to vote for pro-abortion candidates. ("...Those who intentionally promote and perpetuate the crime of abortion through their political actions or their voting are complicit in the sin of murder.") In some cases, such as the discussion of "The Rapture" (Protestant description of God's coming in secret before the end of the world to take the saved to heaven), Madrid lists the major biblical passages Protestants use to validate the Rapture claim, then explains the Catholic interpretation.

Beyond these particular issues, Madrid strongly advocates reading Scripture daily to enrich and nourish your soul and "dramatically deepen your love for and knowledge of Jesus Christ."
