Overview

Some people who knock on your front door are there to knock your Faith. These visitors have questions about Catholicism, but not because they're curious. They take jabs at your beliefs, as they try to persuade you to accept theirs. They want to put you on the spot, knowing that many Catholics have weak spots when it comes to basic religious education.

Author and noted apologist (that is, defender and teacher of Catholic doctrine) Patrick Madrid has compiled the tough questions Catholics face. They are the ones he's been confronted with time and again. And he presents Bible-based, easy-to-understand, and easy-to-explain answers.
