Really Really Good Apologetical books


#1

I have been thinking. I have noticed that most apoligetical books (at least the ones that I have read) deal only with a few big items (Papacy, confession, eucharist and the like) which is good but, I just realized that I can’t defend other things which arn’t ever covered (again to my knowledge) like confirmation, sacrementals, contraceptions, abortion, and the like. Does anyone know of any apologetical books that cover all (but, not limited to) things and more? Thanks and God bless.

I’ve have been reading those books and they are wonderful. If your interested, Montie Claunch, I’ve listed the topics they cover (book 8 is not yet out, but should be soon, I hope! :))

Book 1: The Eucharist, Canon of the Bible, Sola Scriptura, The Papacy, Marian Doctrines, Confession, Scandals in the Chuch, Prayers to the Saints, Purgatory, and a few miscellaneous questions.

Book 2 helps you refute Jehovah’s Witnesses beliefs on: the Merely Human Jesus, the 144,000, Refusal of Blood Transfusions, Annihilation of the Soul, and a Temporary Hell. It also deals with the following Morman docrines: The Great Apostasy, Continuing Revelation, the Plurality of Gods, Baptism of the Dead, and Celestial Marriage.

Book 2.5 refutes the Jehovah’s Witness that the Trinity is false.

Book 3 is a fuller discussion of the Eucharist

Book 4 teaches you arguments for refuting atheists and new agers.

Book 5 discusses: Abortion, Euthanasia, Reproductive Technology, Cloning, and Contraception.

Book 6 is devoted to defending our Marian beliefs

Book 7 is about all about how to read the Bible. It goes into more detail in regard to the Canon and Sola Scriptura, and also shows you how to recognize the errors of dissident scholars.

Book 8 (forthcoming) will discuss the Rapture, Purgatory, Indulgences, Heaven, Hell, and other issues related to the end times.

I also find Patrick Madrid’s Book "Where is That in the Bible"
Very Handy, You can find things quickly if you’ve not quite got them memorized (Like Myself :slight_smile: )
