Catholic Answers apologist Trent Horn explains to a caller what Catholics can believe about evolution and how to interact with unbelieving family members who have problems with the biblical account of creation.
After his conversion to the Catholic faith, Trent Horn pursued an undergraduate degree in history from Arizona State University. He then earned a graduate degree in theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville and is currently pursuing a graduate degree in philosophy from Holy Apostles...
Today’s popular champions of atheism are often called New Atheists, because they don’t just deny God’s existence (as the old atheists did)—they consider it their duty to scorn and ridicule religious belief. But there’s nothing really “new” about their arguments. They’re the same basic objections to theism that mankind has wrestled with for centuries.
We don’t need new answers for this aggressive modern strain of unbelief: We need a new approach.
In Answering Atheism, Trent Horn responds to that need with a fresh and useful resource for the God debate, combining a thorough refutation of atheist claims with a skillfully constructed case for theism based on reason and common sense. Just as important, he advocates a charitable approach that respects atheists’ sincerity and good will—making this book suitable not just for believers but for skeptics and seekers too.
Beginning Apologetics Volume 1: How to Explain and Defend the Catholic Faith "Volume I deals with defending Catholicism. Prepare yourself to answer the following challenges to Catholicism and more:
Why do Catholics call priests Father, when the Bible clearly says, Call no man Father. (Mt 23:9)?
Why do Catholics stress good works when the Bible says salvation is, . . . by faith alone? (Eph 2:8-9)
Why do Catholics believe in Purgatory when the word purgatory isn't found in the Bible?
And much, much more...
"I am come here to die, being a Catholic, a priest, and a religious man, belonging to the Order of St. Benedict; it was by this same order that England was converted."
~ Mark Barkworth, convert, priest, martyr, Venerable; in comments to the crowd just before he was drawn and quartered at Tyburn on the first Tuesday of Lent, 1601.
