Let There Be No Divisions Among You
With clear, compelling logic bolstered by countless Scriptural confirmations, Fr. John MacLaughlin here considers the oft-heard claim that it doesn’t matter what Christian denomination you join, so long as you’re sincere. Formally known as Indifferentism, this view has in recent centuries taken deep root among Christians. Indeed, indifferentism is the enemy not only of Protestantism and Catholicism, but of Christ Himself, who revealed to His apostles scores of truths about Himself and the way of salvation, never encouraging them to pick and choose among those truths.

Let There Be No Divisions Among You – Why All Christians Should Be Catholic
Not only then, argues Fr. MacLaughlin, is one Christian denomination not as good as another; embracing the wrong one can lead a good-hearted soul into utter unbelief, jeopardizing his salvation.
For this reason, Fr. MacLaughlin devotes the second half of this immensely popular book to delineating for readers the two fundamental characteristics that will ever and always be found in the one Church that Christ founded and to which he intends all men and women to belong.
Among the things you will learn here:
- How indifferentism threatens your salvation
- Where Christ forbids preaching some doctrines while ignoring others
- The two marks of the true church delineated by Christ Himself
- Denominational lethargy: how sticking with the Faith you were born into can violate the First Commandment . . . and risk your salvation
- Decrees of the Council of Jerusalem (ca. 50 a.d.): proof that the apostles themselves denied that one Christian faith is as good as another
- How consideration of indifferentism draws inquirers to the true church
- How the profusion of Protestant sects reveals the need for a final authority
- The universality of the True Church: lt existed already at Pentecost, before the Church spread beyond Jerusalem (and one Church has that very same universality today)
- The religion revealed by Christ: In its essentials, it’s clear, definite, unchanging. Is yours?

A Biblical Defense of Catholicism0 out of 5
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.

Behold Your Mother0 out of 5
In Behold Your Mother, Tim Staples takes you through the Church’s teachings about the Blessed Virgin Mary, showing their firm Scriptural and historical roots and dismantling the objections of those who mistakenly believe that Mary competes for the attention due Christ alone. Combining the best recent scholarship with a convert’s in-depth knowledge of the arguments, Staples has assembled the most thorough and useful Marian apologetic you’ll find anywhere.
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.
Crossing the Tiber0 out of 5
An exhilarating conversion story of Steve Ray, a devout Baptist, who relates how he overcame his hostility to the Catholic Church by a combination of serious Bible study and vast research of the writings of the early Church Fathers. In addition to a moving account of their conversion that caused Ray and his wife to “cross the Tiber” to Rome, he offers an in-depth treatment of Baptism and the Eucharist in Scripture and the ancient Church. It contains perhaps the most complete compilation of biblical and patristic quotations and commentary available on Baptism and the Eucharist, as well as a detailed analysis of Sola Scriptura and Tradition.
