A Biblical Defense of Catholicism
A Biblical Defense of Catholicism is an exciting book that demonstrates that Catholicism is eminently and thoroughly biblical. In fact, Catholicism is the only Christian religion that fully conforms with what the Bible clearly teaches. This book not only challenges Protestants to reconsider their anti-Catholic assumptions but also leads Catholics to turn with greater confidence to Scripture, where they will find a powerful biblical defense of their Catholic faith.

To demonstrate the full conformity between Catholicism and Scripture, Catholic author Dave Armstrong, a former Protestant campus missionary, focuses on those issues about which Catholics and Protestants disagree the most: the role of the Bible as a rule of faith, whether we are justified by faith alone, whether doctrine develops, what the Eucharist really is, veneration of Mary and prayer to the saints, the existence of purgatory, the role of penance in salvation, and the nature and infallibility of the papacy.
Working patiently, systematically, and, above all, charitably (and citing Church councils, the Church Fathers, canon law, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church), Armstrong begins his comprehensive examination of each of these disputed issues with an authoritative explanation of what the Catholic Church actually teaches.
With skill and tenacity, he subjects each Catholic teaching to microscopic scrutiny, measuring its conformity with the Bible. Armstrong’s rigorous, Scripture-packed analysis relies on hundreds of Bible passages (including verses from 229 of the 259 chapters in the New Testament!), shedding light on the meaning of those passages as well as on the meaning and truth of the doctrines in question.
The result? With a mastery of Scripture equal to that of the most committed Protestants, Armstrong demonstrates that the Catholic Church is the “Bible Church par excellence,” and that many common Protestant doctrines (such as sola Scriptura) are in fact themselves not biblical.
