Apologetics

Reasons To Believe: How To Understand, Explain, and Defend the Catholic Faith
by best selling author Scott Hahn

This book unravels mysteries, corrects misunderstandings, and offers thoughtful, straightforward responses to common objections about the Catholic faith.

Bestselling author Scott Hahn, a convert to Catholicism, has experienced the doubts that so often drive discussions about God and the Church. In the years before his conversion, he was first a nonbeliever and then an anti-Catholic clergyman. In REASONS TO BELIEVE, he explains the "how and why" of the Catholic faith—drawing from Scripture, his own struggles and those of other converts, as well as from everyday life and even natural science. Hahn shows that reason and revelation, nature and the supernatural, are not opposed to one another; rather they offer complementary evidence that God exists. But He doesn't merely exist. He is someone, and He has a personality, a personal style, that is discernible and knowable. Hahn leads readers to see that God created the universe with a purpose and a form—a form that can be found in the Book of Genesis and that is there when we view the natural world through a microscope, through a telescope, or through our contact lenses. At the heart of the book is Hahn's examination of the ten "keys to the kingdom"—the characteristics of the Church clearly evident in the Scriptures. As the story of creation discloses, the world is a house that has a Father, a palace where the king is really present. God created the cosmos to be a kingdom, and that kingdom is the universal Church, fully revealed by Jesus Christ. Hardcover, 196 pages. (Item #88651) $22.95

   
Good News, Bad News
by Fr. C. John McCloskey and Russell Shaw
Fr. John McCloskey has become a famous “convert maker” in the powerful corridors close to the White House. Having run the Catholic Information Center in the heart of Washington, DC from 1998 to 2004, McCloskey had direct contact with numerous well-known and lesser-known Washington figures. Among well-known Catholic converts instructed by Fr. McCloskey are Senator Sam Brownback, publisher Alfred Regnery, Dr. Bernard Nathanson, journalist Robert Novak and many others.

This work is a joint effort of McCloskey and Russell Shaw, the widely read Catholic author, speaker, and former communications director for the U.S. bishops. Drawing on moving, firsthand accounts of conversions, this book combines personal testimony, solid theology, and effective methods of communicating the Catholic Faith. 134 pages, Paperback (Item #81632) $12.95

   

Religious Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know--And Doesn't

Religious Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know--And Doesn't
by
Stephen Prothero
*Starred Review* The author of I^ American Jesus (2003) opens this important book with a paradox. To wit, Americans are deeply religious I^ and profoundly ignorant about religion; that is, one of the most religious countries is also a nation of "religious illiterates." Prothero calls religious illiteracy dangerous because religion is one of the greatest forces for good--as well as evil--in the world. Nowadays, standing on shaky religious ground can be literally a matter of life and death. To cite two brief examples of America's religious illiteracy: only half of American adults can name one of the four Gospels, and 10 percent of Americans believe that Joan of Arc was Noah's wife. Prothero defines religious literacy--what it is, and what it is not. He also discusses the two great religious revivals in U.S. history, the Second Great Awakening of the nineteenth century and the postwar revival of the 1940s and 1950s. He argues both the constitutionality and the necessity of teaching--with an emphasis on spreading knowledge, not inculcating values--about religion in public schools and higher education. He suggests that every U.S. public high school should require a course on the Bible and another on the religions of the world. And he devotes an entire chapter to "a modest list" of a hundred or so religious terms that he deems essential, from I^ Abraham to I^ Zionism, to any American's religious knowledge.

De-Coding Mary Magdalene
Truth, Legend and Lies
by Amy Welborn
Recent best-sellers have popularized a historically and spiritually false view of Mary Magdalene. A saint who has been revered by the Church for centuries, Mary Magdalene's life and actions have been exploited and distorted, her historical significance marginalized by lies such as:
  • Mary Magdalene was married to Jesus and bore his child.
  • Mary Magdalene is the "real" Holy Grail.
  • The Gnostic gospels tell us the truth about Jesus and Mary Magdalene that the Christian Church has suppressed.
  • For centuries, Mary Magdalene was demeaned by Christian tradition as nothing more than a prostitute.

Learn the truth -- not the fiction -- about the extraordinary woman who was one of the earliest disciples of Jesus and a powerful witness to his death and resurrection.

Amy Welborn, the award-winning author of the international best-seller de-coding Da Vinci, exposes popular myths and misperceptions about Mary Magdalene, and presents us with the woman who has stirred the Christian imagination and inspired the devotion of artists, saints, and sinners for two thousand years.

Where de-coding Da Vinci left off, de-coding Mary Magdalene begins. Learn the truth, legend, and lies abut the real Mary Magdalene and what she can teach you today!  Paperback; 146 pages (Item #84938) $9.95

Evil in Mirror Lake
by Fr. Leo Joseph Hayes

The Ancient Mystery of Evil Revealed. The Terrorist Attack on America Explained! The Killings at Columbine High School Defined! Is There a Kennedy Curse?

"...The answer given by others is that what seems like chaos can conceal design. In a created universe, God should betray no trace of the Omipotent Presence, since to do so would be to rob the created forces-me-of my independence. This would turn me from the active pursuit of answers to being a mere supllicant of God. And so it is in nature: God's language is mostly silence."

Father Leo Joseph Hayes answers the age-old question of how a just God can allow the innocent to suffer. He explains the terrorist attack on America with a "Why Me God" view.

DE-CODING DAVINCI
The facts behind the fiction of the Da Vinci Code
by Amy Welborn

Amy Welborn addresses the misrepresentation of history, religion, and art in The Da Vinci Code.

  • Did Leonardo actually build these "codes" into his paintings?
  • Was the Priory of Sion a real organization?
  • Is the Holy Grail really, as he says, Mary Magdalen's womb and now her bones, and not the Last Supper cup?
  • Is Opus Dei really what The Da Vinci Code says is it?
  • What was Constantine's true role in early Christianity?
  • Was Jesus human or divine or both?
  • Was he married to Mary Magdalene?
  • Do secret writings not in the Bible really contain truths about Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and the "sacred feminine"?

De-Coding Da Vinci is complete with discussion questions in every chapter. It is a perfect tool to become well-versed in the important issues raised by The Da Vinci Code. (Item #83670) $9.95

   
The Da Vinci Hoax:
Exposing the Errors in the Da Vinci Code

by Carl Olson and Sandra Miesel
(Item #83706) $15.95
The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown’s best selling novel, purports to be more than fiction: it claims to be based on fact and scholarly research. Brown wants his readers to believe that he is revealing the long-concealed truth about Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and early Christianity, a truth that he says has been suppressed by the malevolent and conspiratorial forces of the Catholic Church. The novel alleges that there has been throughout history a secret group of true followers of a Gnostic Jesus and his wife, Mary Magdalene, the true “Holy Grail”. Almost everything most Christians and non-Christians think they know about Jesus, according to Dan Brown, is completely wrong, the result of Catholic propaganda designed to hide the truth from the world.

But are The Da Vinci Code’s claims fact or just plain fiction? Is the novel well-researched as claimed? What is the truth about Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and the early Church? Has the Catholic Church distorted the real Jesus? Why is the novel so popular? What about the anti-Catholic, anti-Christian agenda behind the novel?

Best selling author Carl Olson and journalist Sandra Miesel answer these and other important questions. Their painstaking research into The Da Vinci Code and its sources reveals some surprising truths. No one who has read or heard about The Da Vinci Code should miss this provocative and illuminating new book.

Praise for The Da Vinci Hoax

"Finally! Someone has taken the trouble to counter the absurdities of The Da Vinci Code, and to confront all the anti-Christian and anti-Catholic rhetoric that book has inspired. In writing their own well-informed and well-argued text, Olson and Miesel have done a real service, not just to Christians, but to anyone weary of contemporary fads and foolishness. And unlike the original Code, The Da Vinci Hoax is a delight to read."
--Philip Jenkins
Distinguished Professor of History and Religious Studies, Pennsylvania State University

“In The Da Vinci Hoax, Carl Olson and Sandra Miesel bring their considerable analytical powers to bear on the phenomenally successful novel by Dan Brown. The Da Vinci Code is a writhing nest of neo-Gnostic myths, blatant falsehoods, half-truths and absurd suppositions presented as facts--indeed, it is one of the most odious cases of revisionist history that have appeared during the past two centuries.
Olson and Miesel dissect it carefully--break the code of the Code, as it were--revealing not only Brown’s distortions of history but the underlying malice in his ‘fictional’ attack on Christianity. The Da Vinci Hoax is more than a refutation of a single book; it is an antidote to a poisonous genre that is growing in contemporary writing. This is a fascinating read and very good medicine!”
--Michael O’Brien
Author, Father Elijah: An Apocalypse

“The title of this book by Carl Olson and Sandra Miesel says it all. The authors of The Da Vinci Hoax deserve our gratitude for exposing in considerable detail and with a sure touch the fabrications of Dan Brown’s book. Theirs is the definitive debunking.”
--Cardinal Francis George
Archbishop of Chicago

“I’ve painfully watched some usually-sensible university students fall victim to The Da Vinci Code disease. I’ll enjoy having this clearly-written antidote to prescribe.”

--Marvin Olasky
Professor, The University of Texas at Austin
Editor-in-chief, World Magazine

“Olsen and Miesel have done a superb and meticulous job of dissecting the fraud which is The Da Vinci Code. Not only Christians, but all fair –minded people owe them a debt of gratitude.”
--James Hitchcock
Professor of History, St. Louis University
