Veteran Catholic apologist Dave Armstrong (author of 49 books, including the bestsellers, A Biblical Defense of Catholicism, The One-Minute Apologist, The New Catholic Answer Bible, and The Catholic Verses) tackles the hottest issue in Catholic-Protestant apologetics discussion: the relationship of the Bible to sacred tradition and the Church. Indeed, Dave's specialty in his 25 years of Catholic apologetics, has been "biblical evidence for Catholicism" (the name of his popular blog).
In thirty succinct, right-to-the-point chapters, he addresses questions such as the Catholic Church's approach to the Bible through the centuries, the Bible's "perspicuity" (i.e., alleged self-evident clearness in the main), the seven deuterocanonical or so-called "apocryphal" books, Catholics and Bible-reading, the alleged necessity of explicit biblical "proof texts", aspects of the interpretation of Scripture, the question of whether the Catholic Church views itself as "above" the Bible, and the Protestant rule of faith, known as sola Scriptura or "Scripture Alone" (as the final infallible authority in theology), along with many more Bible-related topics.
The book serves as a helpful and handy clarification for Catholics who need to better learn their own Church's teaching, in order to confidently reply to Protestant challenges, and for Protestants who may be misinformed regarding the Catholic Church's true opinions about Holy Scripture. In the final analysis, it is happily demonstrated that the two sides have far more in common in this regard, than disagreement.
