My 14-year old daughter has an Internet friend who is an Evangelical and asks her questions like “why do you Catholics worship Mary”… “why do you think the Pope is so important” etc. She frequently comes to me asking for help in putting together responses… and she is just a few months away from her Confirmation, so this is a big deal to her because she is concerned about showing that she can take responsibility for her Catholic faith and be adult about it.
I have told her that these issues require detailed Biblical study, reading in the Fathers of the Church and so on, that Protestant objections can’t be refuted with just a one or two sentence quote from the Bible. I was thinking it would be helpful to have one or two books on apologetics for her in electronic form, so that she can copy and paste short quotes into the messages that she writes to her friend. Since they are only Internet friends she can’t loan him a book to read. I have a purely paper book library (don’t like reading e-books) but I am willing to buy one or two books in electronic format for her use.
I was wondering if anyone can suggest a couple of titles that would cover all the essential points. Thanks very much.
