A Biblical Defense of Catholicism (book)

has anyone read this book? I found it when I was looking up something against the Catholic church in a particular post. One more good thing to come from all the negative post. If you search long enough, you will find the truth.

Has anyone read this book? Can you tell me what you think? I think I am going to read it and pass it along to others.

"I highly recommend A Biblical Defense of Catholicism, which I find to be thoroughly orthodox, well written, and effective in making Catholic truth more understandable and accessible to the public at large."

  • I noticed that there is also a companion guide to the book that was mentioned.  I was wondering if anyone has used it as well and what they thought of it?

  • Haven't read it but I will be adding it to my list as well. I just finished "Catholicism for Dummies" which is great and I just started "The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Catechism of the Catholic Church" which came with my copy of the Catechism and so far it's really great too. Both of those are SUPER easy to read.

  • Right now I'm reading, You Can Understand the Bible: A Practical and Illuminating Guide to Each Book in the BIble by Peter Kreeft. This is a very good book, its written in small segments so you can read a little everyday while having your cup of coffee.

  • Does that include the Deuterocanonical books Ryansmom? Sounds like another I'd be interested in. I'm beginning to wonder if I'll ever find enough time to get through everything on my ever-growing list!

  • Here is a review of his book and I think this is authors blog as well. From my understanding the author is  a protestant converted to Catholicism. This book is filled with biblical reference to back up the Catholic church

  • I've read it and do reference it. Some parts are not that easy to read - but I do think it's a helpful book. The website "Biblical Evidence for Catholicism" is also helpful and quite detailed.
