The Belief of Catholics0 out of 5
While Belief of Catholics deals extensively with Protestantism, its target is more the unchurched or lightly-churched modern who, if he gives any thought at all to Catholicism, thinks it mildly foreign. The author Ronald Knox, one of the most influential British convert-writers of the 20th century, discusses “the truths Catholics hold”, “the rules Catholics acknowledge”, “the strength Catholics receive”, and “the ambitions Catholics honour” but also that God really does exist, that His existence matters, and that only knowledge of Him and obedience to Him can lead to answers to the questions that haunt everyone.
By What Authority?0 out of 5
In this newly updated, expanded version of his popular work of apologetics, Shea presents a lively and entertaining look at his conversion to Catholicism from Evangelicalism and his discovery of Christian tradition. As an Evangelical, Shea accepted the principle of “sola scriptura” (Scripture alone) as the basis of faith. Now as a Catholic convert, he skillfully explains how and why Sacred Tradition occupies a central role in Divine Revelation.
