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?

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.

William Perkins and the Making of Protestant England presents a new interpretation of the theology and historical significance of William Perkins (1558-1602), a prominent Cambridge scholar and teacher during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. Though often described as a Puritan, W. B. Patterson argues that Perkins was in fact a prominent and effective apologist for the established church whose contributions to English religious thought had an immense influence on an English Protestant culture that endured well into modern times. The English Reformation is shown to be a part of the European-wide Reformation, and Perkins himself a leading Reformed theologian. In A Reformed Catholike (1597), Perkins distinguished the theology upheld in the English Church from that of the Roman Catholic Church, while at the same time showing the considerable extent to which the two churches shared common concerns. His books dealt extensively with the nature of salvation and the need to follow a moral way of life. Perkins wrote pioneering works on conscience and "practical divinity". In The Arte of Prophecying (1607), he provided preachers with a guidebook to the study of the Bible and their oral presentation of its teachings. He dealt boldly and in down-to-earth terms with the need to achieve social justice in an era of severe economic distress. Perkins is shown to have been instrumental to the making of a Protestant England, and to have contributed significantly to the development of the religious culture not only of Britain but also of a broad range of countries on the Continent.
