Catholic Answers has a long history of defending the Faith and producing great resourcs for Catholics to learn their Faith better. With authors including Karl Keating, Dave Armstrong, Jimmy Akin, Jason Evert and more, Catholic Answers has a great bench of writers who produce some of the best apologetics resources available.
For 2012 they have six new releases: two books, two dvds and two cd sets.
First up is 100 Biblical Arguments Against Sola Scriptura. Frankly, I didn’t think you could come up with 100 arguments against any specific topic in the Bible and Dave Armstrong has managed to come up with 100 against one of the primary pillars of the Protestant revolt. I’m impressed.
Dave Armstrong has written several apologetics books and many are available in e-book form as well.
The other book, and this one is going on my reading list, is Converts and Kingdoms – How the Church Converted the Pagan West – and How We Can Do It Again.
I’m a sucker for history books, especially ones with knights and shields on the cover (see Triumph).
The great thing about this book is that it tells the history of missionary efforts in the early Church but, uniquely, examines what succeeded and tries to figure out why. Then, taking these lessons, looks to how the Church today can have the same effect on our culture.
The DVD takes a look at saintly men and lays out a plan for growing in holiness as a man. This DVD is great for either personal or group viewing.
Jason Evert is a well-known chastity speaker at teen and young adult conferences and has written several books on sexuality and the Theology of the Body. His latest offering takes a look at something that many people will be surprised to know: Chastity isn’t just for single people, it’s for married people
His latest DVD, Life Giving Love looks at the theology and biology of sexuality and explains why the current culture’s view of both marriage and sex is distorted and a threat to true love and happy marriages.
“Where is the Mass in the Bible?” Protestants may never ask this specific questions but all of there disputes about the Eucharist, sacraments and what worship is really do boil down to this question. Karlo Broussard answers the question by going through the Mass and shows how it is all from and based on Bible teaching in The Bible Blueprint for the Mass.
So is the Bible to be taken literally? You know, the Bible said Jesus had brothers and that He said “Call no man father”. Or is it not? Like when Jesus said “This is my body”. This debate between Tim Staples and Australian Rev. Barnes takes on the issue at the center of the Catholic Faith – the Eucharist. When Jesus said “This is my body” did Jesus mean what He said? Find out what both sides have to say in this two CD set.
