Over 2,000 Bible Proofs
for Catholic Truths!

Contrary to what many believe, Catholic doctrine is not made up by popes and theologians but is derived entirely from revelation, as this book shows.

In it, veteran Catholic apologist Dave Armstrong gathers in one place countless passages from Holy Scripture that point directly to the teachings of the Catholic Church.


Bible Proofs (book cover)


This galaxy of more than 2,000 passages from the Bible is overwhelming evidence that on every side Catholic teachings are confirmed by Scripture.

Indeed, these passages show that the Catholic Church has a more complete grasp of the meaning of Scripture than those who try to use Scripture to discredit the Church.

That’s because Catholic teaching is not based on selective readings of Scripture but on understanding and veneration of the whole Bible in its organic interrelatedness.

Catholic doctrines are not distilled from single passages quoted in isolation or out of context; they arise from an encounter with the whole of Scripture, wherein passages on the same theme are read in light of each other, so that together they lead the mind to a complete picture of the truth.

That’s why Dave Armstrong has gathered here under 115 thematic headings all the passages in Scripture relating to key Catholic doctrines.

This arrangement makes it easy for readers to consider systematically — as the Church does — all the parts of the Bible that relate to any particular Catholic belief.

Whether you’re a Protestant seeking to understand Catholicism, or a Catholic wanting to defend Catholic teaching or learn more about its biblical basis, this is the one source book you need.

More Bible proofs for the Catholic Faith

With humility and care, author Dave Armstrong here explains the ninety-five key Bible passages that confound all who would use Scripture to criticize the Church and Her doctrines.

These are the verses that have drawn so many serious believers -- including Armstrong -- out of their Protestant congregations and into the Catholic Church.

Armstrong shows that a fair-minded reading of each of these ninety-five passages (and of the whole Bible) supports the Catholic position on the key issues that divide Protestants from Catholics.

Fr. Andrew Apostoli
The Gift of God: The Holy Spirit

"Spiritually wise, morally honest, and psychologically sensitive advice about the most forgotten yet the most crucial dimension of Catholic evangelism, the personal. No tricks here, just sound, Catholic, traditional common sense. Don't evangelize without it!"
Peter Kreeft

David B. Currie
Born Fundamentalist,
Born Again Catholic

You don't have to become a biblical scholar or a theologian to be an effective spokesman for the Catholic Faith.

In fact, even though you don't know all the answers and can't explain every aspect of the Faith, you can begin winning souls to the Church right now . . . using prayer, friendship, and common sense.

It sounds almost too good to be true, but in Search and Rescue, Patrick Madrid explains why these are among the most effective, time-tested methods for bringing family and friends into — or back into — the Church.

As the publisher of Envoy magazine, author of many apologetics books (including Surprised by Truth 2), and a veteran defender of the Faith, Madrid himself has used these methods successfully for years.

But Madrid doesn't give you only the benefit of his own considerable experience: in Search and Rescue he also includes simple and genial advice from St. Francis of Assisi, St. Augustine, and other great lovers of God.

Get Search and Rescue — the book that shows you how you can start winning souls for Christ today!

From the Foreword by

There are plenty of answer books out there already, and I'm grateful for them: they provide a service for Catholics that can't be underestimated.

But they're not enough!

In Search and Rescue, Patrick provides what those books lack: the spiritual elements that must be there if you're ever to win converts to the Faith.
