    Al Kresta's book unsettled me with fact after fact that describe

    Al Kresta's book unsettled me with fact after fact that described what he identifies as 15 opponents to the Catholic faith. With over 900 references and citations, he challenges and, in my opinion, argues effectively against each of the 15 opponents.
    He groups the 15 into 4 categories – Spirituality and Revelation, Science and Reason, Christian Origins, Power and Wealth. At the heart of each opponent, the author defines and then dissects each one to counter the common arguments used to advance the topic.
    For example, in Opponent #14 (Power and Wealth) – he tackles consumerism. Kresta begins with the story of supermodel Petra Nemcova’s reassessment of her responsibilities after the tragic death of her boyfriend / photographer in a 2004 Tsumani. He defines consumerism and its pathologies, such as “consumerism reduces persons to products” and continues with its world-wide impact. Finally he gives two specific principles to combat the “bondage” of consumerism.
    I think this is an excellent reference book for active Christians and especially Catholics who want to understand the attacks on our faith, how to fend off and dispel attacks with facts. Even those readers who define themselves with “traditional values” will find much wisdom in this book.
