How should I let my husband know I am thinking of converting to Catholicism? Should I wait until he is interested in Catholicism as well?
What is the history behind the Catholic Bible and the Protestant Bible?
Shouldn’t Constantinople have been made the major city for Catholics after the fall of Rome? Since Charlemagne killed and replaced all of the bishops, how can the Church claim apostolic succession?
What country did the Bible originate from? Where was the first Christian church built in the name of Jesus?
Why do Protestants have such a negative view on Catholicism?
"Catholic apologetics is back. It's everywhere. As a professional apologist, Mark Brumley sees this renaissance as an immensely good thing -- an essential part of the Church's evangelical mission. Even so, grave dangers attend this apologetics renaissance. Some of these dangers are so serious, they threaten to undermine the 'good' that apologetics can accomplish. Brumley calls these dangers the Seven Deadly Sins Of Catholic Apologetics And Evangelization. Like the seven deadly sins of the moral life, they are ""deadly"" not merely as isolated, individual acts but as vices or evil habits -- habitual tendencies to act in a certain way. In How NOT To Share Your Faith: The Seven Deadly Sins Of Catholic Apologetics And Evangelization, Brumley exposes them for you."
