About this item

If you want quick, substantive answers to the most common (and even several uncommon) claims that Catholic beliefs and practices aren’t biblical, then Proving the Catholic Faith is Biblical is the book for you.

In these pages, veteran apologist Dave Armstrong carefully walks you through the key teachings of the Church, revealing how each is rooted in Scripture.

He begins with several essays on tradition before moving into Ecclesiology, explaining the basis of a single Church, why priests are called “father,” and whether Church councils are more authoritative than the pope.

Armstrong then justifies priestly celibacy before moving into the theology of salvation. He illuminates the Church’s teaching on predestination, what “believing” in Jesus really means, and the relationship between faith and good works.

He continues by explaining purgatory and penance, the ritualism of the Holy Mass, the Rosary, the Communion of Saints, Mary as Queen of Heaven, papal infallibility, annulments, contraception, the necessity of Hell, and even the development of Church doctrine.

All told, he offers here 80 powerful essays that make sense of so many Catholic beliefs and practices that puzzle non-Catholics and cradle Catholics alike.

Read this book, and you’ll come to see that not only is the Catholic Faith thoroughly biblical, it is the only Christian religion in full conformity with Scripture.

Solid and Practical Apologetics
If you find yourself needing to explain or defend your Catholic faith, this book provides an arsenal of solid apologetics. If you are considering joining the Catholic Church or, worse still, leaving it, I strongly suggest that you read this before making up your mind. It may be a bit unsettling but that is sometimes the nature of Truth.

Must read for Catholics and non-Catholics alike
A must read for anyone who thinks they know something about the Catholic Church. Before saying another word about the Church, read this book. I think both Catholics and non-Catholics will learn the historical and Biblical foundations of the Faith.

A great book as a resource for Catholic apologetics and evangelization, particularly in dialogue with other Christians.
I really enjoyed this book. I think he nailed his goal of explaining Catholic teachings in a convincing, logical, and straightforward manner. We're all created with a hunger for the truth, and I think this book really satisfies that hunger quite well for most of our needs, or at least mine.

Is there Biblical support for controversial Catholic teachings? Well, yes.
I loved this book and read it in one day. It made me think about a lot of issues in a new way. I thank God for the work Dave Armstrong is doing, and I cannot wait to read my next Dave Armstrong book.

As always Dave is thorough and thoughtful in his arguments and his books are easy to read and understand but still scholarly.
