Are the CA answer guides good to give to someone to help defend and explain the faith or would it be better to try to explain things in my own words?
I feel compelled to open a dialogue about our belief in the transubstantiation during the Mass to a friend of mine. He believes a great deal in Jesus and I believe he would want to participate in the eBay boycott, even if he did not completely subscribe to the fullness of the Catholic faith.
Background on my friend: He explained his faith journey to me stating in childhood he went to a church with his mom that was a hybrid of the Christian and Jewish faith, during college he became an atheist and now he is Christian, I am not sure of the denomination. He attended a “Vineyards” church while he lived in my area.
As far as my strength in apologetics, I have not gained the confidence in my abilities yet for an exchange, because I do not have the bible verses memorized, they way I am sure my friend does. I believe this friend would read the answer guides if I gave them, but I was wondering in your experiences is a true personal witness to your faith more successful. Thank you so much for your responses in advance.
