About this item

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.

Working patiently, systematically, and, above all, charitably (and citing Church councils, the Church Fathers, canon law, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church), Armstrong begins his comprehensive examination of each of these disputed issues with an authoritative explanation of what the Catholic Church actually teaches.

Then, with skill and tenacity, he subjects each Catholic teaching to microscopic scrutiny, measuring its conformity with the Bible. Armstrong’s rigorous, Scripture-packed analysis relies on hundreds of Bible passages (including verses from 229 of the 259 chapters in the New Testament!), shedding light on the meaning of those passages as well as on the meaning and truth of the doctrines in question.

The result? With a mastery of Scripture equal to that of the most committed Protestants, Armstrong demonstrates that the Catholic Church is the “Bible Church par excellence,” and that many common Protestant doctrines (such as sola Scriptura) are in fact themselves not biblical.

Here is a book that challenges Protestants to reconsider their anti-Catholic assumptions; and that will lead Catholics to turn with greater confidence to Scripture, where they will find a powerful biblical defense of their Catholic faith.

Outstanding book! Great resource! A must-have!
The author goes deep in Scripture to show how Catholicism is rooted in the Bible. And he proves it beyond doubt. I recommend this book to everyone.

Excellent
Well written with lots of biblical verse references and a very good description of church history explaining why tradition is so important. The author, being knowledgeable in beliefs and origins of various Protestant denominations, aids greatly in understanding some of the misconceptions between Protestant and Catholic theology. 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.

The best Catholic defense book I’ve read!
This was a fantastic book! I had a lot of questions, as a recent convert, and this answered 90% of them. If you are coming to the Catholic Church, or are an older Catholic defending the faith, this is the book for you!

If the Bible is a mystery to you then get this...
Be amazed as Dave demonstrates what Catholic catechisis and schooling has failed to teach you!! Catholicism is biblical and you have no excuse not to be as passionate as the Evangelicals down the street. At least now you can hold your own in conversation with Bible Protestants! Makes me wonder if Vatican II foresaw the internet as a grand tool of evangelization, which isn't suprising as the HS did guide it. In that case, Dave has heeded the call of the new evangelization. Better knowledge leads to charity, rather that ignorant fear, and leads to true ecumenism.
