The One Minute Apologist

If youre looking for solid Catholic answers to common Protestant challenges, but dont have lots of time, then reach for The One-Minute Apologist.

Here renowned Catholic apologist Dave Armstrong (author of A Biblical Defense of Catholicism and The Catholic Verses) has assembled over sixty of the claims and arguments that Protestants (of all stripes) most frequently level against the Church. Drawing on a lifetime of study in Scripture, history, and the works of Catholic and Protestant theologians he delivers the essential Catholic replies to each claim, packaged for you in a compact and uniquely usable format.

And since hes a convert from Evangelicalism, Armstrong presents these anti-Catholic claims with an insiders accuracy using the special terms, references, and follow-up arguments that youre mostly likely to hear in real-world encounters and responds to them in a way Protestants can understand and appreciate.

The One-Minute Apologist is concise, but never superficial. It cites or quotes more than a thousand Scripture verses, along with the words of scores of saints and scholars including many respected Protestant sources. Packing centuries of learning and wisdom into just a few tightly structured pages, The One-Minute Apologist decisively refutes common Protestant claims such as:

  • The Bible is the only infallible source of theological truth.
  • Peter is not the rock to which Jesus referred.
  • Celibacy for priests is unnatural and unbiblical.
  • The Catholic Mass is an abomination.
  • True Christians cannot fall away from salvation.
  • Mary had other children besides Jesus.
  • Indulgences allow Catholics to indulge in sin.
  • Venerating the saints is a form of idolatry.
  • The Catholic ban on contraception has no scriptural basis.
  • And over 50 other pervasive Protestant objections to Catholic doctrine and practice!
  • More accessible than thick theological tomes, more substantial than tracts, and better organized than other quick answer books, The One-Minute Apologist is the one source youll find yourself turning to whenever you have the need to defend the Catholic Faith quickly, credibly, and well.
