In this talk geared for men, Tim begins with a brief recounting of Colonel (and later Lieutenant General) Lewis “Chesty” Puller and the heroic exploits of the Marines under his command at the Chosin Reservoir during the Korean War. As a former Marine, Tim does a little bragging here concerning the great history of the Marines, but then gives some of the lesser known underlying reasons for this greatness rooted in the Marine Corps motto of “always faithful to God, Country and Corps.” From there, Tim draws a parallel to the history of our Catholic Church revealing a level of heroics that makes Marine Corps history pale in comparison. Both the Marine Corps and the Catholic Church similarly bring out the greatness in men because each “raises a standard” that challenges them beyond anything they would even consider on their own. When good men are challenged to fight for a cause that transcends themselves and in union with other men with the same vision and purpose, there is no obstacle that can stand in their way!

The Seven Deadly Sins of Apologetics
The renaissance of Catholic apologetics has done great good for the Church. Ordinary Catholics are learning how to defend and explain the Faith—and to share it enthusiastically with others—more fluently and confidently than ever. As an experienced apologist and evangelist, Mark Brumley has seen firsthand what this renaissance has accomplished. But he has also witnessed its dangers and pitfalls; some of which are so serious that, left unchecked, they can undermine all our efforts. When we try to prove too much from reason alone, for example, or when we let prideful desire to win arguments overshadow our goal of communicating God’s truth, we run the risk of becoming mediocre—even counter-productive—stewards and messengers of that truth. In The Seven Deadly Sins of Apologetics, Brumley examines the most common faults that defenders of the Faith must guard against, and shows you how to avoid and overcome them. Read this concise and lively book today and become a more effective apostle tomorrow!
"Once the decision had been made, to tarry in the opposition party would have been inconsistent with my whole past. I would have set my own infallibility in the place of the infallibility of the Church."
