Catholic Answers to Protestant Questions is a must read for those seeking to grow in their Catholic identity. Here are just a few of the questions that are covered in this book: Where did the Bible come from? Was Christ or Constantine the founder of the Catholic Church? Was Peter the first Pope? What do Catholics mean by being "born again" and why do they baptize children? Where do Catholics find the seven sacraments in the Bible? Why do Catholics believe in the Eucharist as the Body and Blood of Christ? Why do we need a priest to forgive serious sins? What are indulgences and why are they needed? Where can we find a priest being referred to as "Father" in the Bible? Do Catholics worship saints? What is the communion of saints? Is Mary the Mother of God? Did Jesus have brothers and sisters? Was Mary assumed into heaven? Is there a purgatory? Is there a rapture? Is salvation assured? Are we justified by faith alone, or by faith and works? Do Catholics practice idol worship?

Wie bei einem Kriminalfall nimmt Lee Strobel auf der Suche nach Wahrheit Experten ins Kreuzverhör und konfrontiert sie mit wissenschaftlichen Fakten, anerkannten Beweisen und unangenehmen Fragen. Wie verlässlich ist das Neue Testament? Gibt es außerhalb der Bibel Beweise für die Existenz Jesu? Die „Gerichtsverhandlung“ können Sie in diesem aufregenden Buch nachverfolgen, doch das „Urteil“ müssen Sie selbst fällen ...

Das Christentum verehrt Jesus von Nazaret als sanften Hirten, dessen Reich nicht von dieser Welt sei. Aber entspricht dieses Bild der historischen Realität? Kann es den grausamen Kreuzestod plausibel erklären? Der amerikanische Religionswissenschaftler Reza Aslan meint: nein. Sein Buch, das in den USA für einen Skandal sorgte, versucht zu ergründen, wer Jesus war, bevor es das Christentum gab. Es ist das fesselnde, brillant erzählte Porträt eines Mannes voller Widersprüche, einer Epoche voll religiöser Inbrunst und blutiger Kämpfe und einer Weltreligion im Werden.

"Cardinal Avery Dulles's A History of Apologetics provides a masterful overview of Christian apologetics, from its beginning in the New Testament through the Middle Ages and on to the present resurgence of apologetics among Catholics and Protestants. Dulles shows how Christian apologists have at times both criticized and drawn from their intellectual surroundings to present the reason-ableness of Christian belief."--BOOK JACKET.

The well-known and very popular Catholic couple, Scott and Kimberly Hahn, have been constantly travelling and speaking all over North America for the last few years about their conversion to the Catholic Church. Now these two outstanding Catholic apologists tell in their own words about the incredible spiritual journey that led them to embrace Catholicism. Scott Hahn was a Presbyterian minister, the top student in his seminary class, a brilliant Scripture scholar, and militantly anti-Catholic ... until he reluctantly began to discover that his "enemy" had all the right answers. Kimberly, also a top-notch theology student in the seminary, is the daughter of a well-known Protestant minister, and went through a tremendous "dark night of the soul" after Scott converted to Catholicism. Their conversion story and love for the Church has captured the hearts and minds of thousands of lukewarm Catholics and brought them back into an active participation in the Church. They have also influenced countless conversions to Catholicism among their friends and others who have heard their powerful testimony. Written with simplicity, charity, grace and wit, the Hahns' deep love and knowledge of Christ and of Scripture is evident and contagious throughout their story. Their love of truth and of neighbor is equally evident, and their theological focus on the great importance of the family, both biological and spiritual, will be a source of inspiration for all readers.

This work is amongst the finest Summary of Catholic Apologetics ever to be put in between two covers. With over 220 questions, what distinguishes it most from its companions is its striking reliance on the Scriptures primarily to derive facts and principles, using the literal and spiritual interpretation of the Scriptures, to defend Catholic Doctrines against the combatants of Our Faith. Starting with debates on the Scriptures and the Catholic Church, it gallantly extends to touchy topics such as the Authority of the Catholic Church, Apostolic Succession, Papal Primacy, Papal Infallibility and the Power of Excommunication! Without fearing or sparing neither anyone nor anything, it magnificently proceeded to defend the Seven Bastions of the Church - the Seven Sacraments in the sense the Church has understood them for well over 2000 years in contrary to the manner the modern church wants them to be understood today! As you should have expected, not the Defense of Marian Doctrines was left out as well as some Practices and Devotions of the Catholic Church received from Apostolic Succession, such as Lent, Sign of the Cross, Abstinence from meat, Use of Holy water, Holy Images and others! To wrap up the work, some errors of Protestantism as well as Martin Luther, the father of Protestants were exposed! Word for word, the key doctrine of Protestantism, salvation by faith alone, was crushed and annihilated using nothing but facts and principles derived from the Scriptures! In one word - this is a work for all Christians of goodwill who want to stand at the Right Hand of the Judge on the Inevitable Terrible Day of Final Judgement! If you do not wish to be saved, we strongly recommend that you do not read nor hear this work! Chances are 100% that you will either experience greater sorrow unto Salvation if you are humble or greater hatred of Truth unto damnation if you are arrogant! If after reading or hearing this work, you choose to remain an enemy to GOD and to His One and Only Church He Instituted on St. Peter - The True Catholic Church, it is not me that has designated your rewards for this rebellion but CHRIST The Son of GOD - "And that servant who knew the Will of his Lord and prepared not himself, and did not according to His Will, shall be beaten with many stripes!" - St. Luke 12:47.

Das Interesse am entdogmatisierten, mystischen Jesus nimmt seit Jahren zu Die Faszination für die „Kultfigur“ Jesus ist heute größer denn je. Man ahnt, dass die Lehre des Mannes aus Nazareth noch unerschlossenes Potenzial enthält. Als „ersten Jesus“ bezeichnet Deepak Chopra den historischen Jesus. Der „zweite Jesus“ ist für ihn der theologisch umgedeutete, offizielle, kirchliche Jesus. Der „dritte Jesus“ ist für Chopra ein mystischer Jesus, der den Weg zum Gottesbewusstsein weist – einen Erkenntnisweg zur kompletten inneren Transformation. Deepak Chopras Deutung der Botschaft Jesu zeigt einen Erkenntnisweg, der die Chance einer tiefgreifenden mystischen und ethischen Veränderung eröffnet.

In seinem Buch »Der Ursprung des Christentums« entwickelt der marxistische Theoretiker und Historiker Karl Kautsky (1854-1938) ein detailreiches Bild von Staat und Gesellschaft des frühen römischen Kaiserreichs, das mit der Gründungszeit des Christentums zusammenfällt. Großen Wert legt Kautsky dabei auf die Darstellung der religiösen und vor allem wirtschaftlichen Situation der unteren Gesellschaftsschichten, die sich durch die christliche Heilsbotschaft besonders angesprochen fühlten.

Dass in Jesus Gott selbst zu den Menschen gekommen ist, zeigt sich schon in den Ereignissen um seine Geburt und Kindheit. Ist die Darstellung der Evangelien verlässlich? Davon hängt ab, ob der christliche Glaube wirklich trägt. "In der Armseligkeit der Geburt Jesu zeichnet sich das Große ab, in dem sich geheimnsvoll die Rettung der Menschen vollzieht."

English summary: Following years of preparation, the author of the standard work The History of Christianity in Latin America (1978) here presents a perfectly new concept of his seminal textbook, which unfolds in a compact format the sum of a lifetime of research in this field.Hans-Juergen Prien's extensive teaching and research as Chair for Iberian and Latin American History (established by Richard Konetzke) has put him in a position to demonstrate the embeddedness of the history of the church in Latin America - as far as this is feasible within the framework of the Monographs on the History of the Church - in the main political, social, and economic developments of this subcontinent.The comprehensive list of sources and the bibliography attest to the fact that by now it has become almost impossible for a single scholar to acquire a firm command of the entire history of the denominationally extremely diverse Christianity of an entire subcontinent, spanning five hundred years. German description: Der Autor des Standardwerkes aDie Geschichte des Christentums in Lateinamerika (1978) legt nach langjahrigen Vorarbeiten in vollig neuer Konzeption ein Lehrbuch zum Christentum in Lateinamerika vor, das in kurzer Form die Summe seines Forscherlebens auf diesem Gebiet darstellt. Priens Lehrtatigkeit auf dem von Richard Konetzke begruendeten Lehrstuhl fuer Iberische und Lateinamerikanische Geschichte hat seinen Uberblick ueber die Politische Geschichte, Gesellschafts- und Wirtschaftsgeschichte Lateinamerikas wesentlich erweitert, so dass er die Einbettung der Kirchengeschichte in diese Gebiete immer wieder zu verdeutlichen versucht, soweit das im Rahmen der Reihe aKirchengeschichte in Einzeldarstellungen moglich ist. Das umfangreiche Quellen- und Literaturverzeichnis zeigt, dass es heute fuer einen einzelnen Forscher kaum noch moglich ist, die konfessionell stark zerklueftete Christentumsgeschichte eines ganzen Subkontinents ueber fuenf Jahrhunderte hinweg zu ueberblicken.
