Hosts of helpful Catholic apologetic books currently exist; however, a concise treatment that specifically targets all the major Protestant objections in an easily accessible manner is hard to find. Anderson's fourth volume offers such. It provides readers with salient counterpoints for each objection, and most often from the very source Protestants use to deny important aspects of the faith: the Bible. Thus, without even realizing it, Protestants implicitly accept the Catholic faith as they accept the very texts the faith provided them. Important issues such as these are pointed out throughout the book. It is a must-read for Catholics seeking to address Protestant questions, and for Protestants desiring to understand why Catholicism claims to be biblical through and through. This work cogently articulates how Catholicism is biblical, and just how often Protestant positions are untenable.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“In Defending Catholicism, James S. Anderson provides a readable, pocketable, and excellent resource for Protestants who want to understand the controversial doctrines and beliefs, some of which caused the reformation. This understanding may inspire them to pursue ecumenism, which has become a divine imperative in this world that has been polarized by several issues including religion. It is also a handy and concise resource for Catholics, most of whom are barely catechized, who want to deepen their understanding of the teachings at the heart of Catholicism. This firm grounding in the doctrines of the church will arm them to intelligibly and coherently defend their faith.”

—John Chitakure, Associate Professor of Pastoral Theology, Mexican American Catholic College
