BLUE COLLAR APOLOGETICS (BOOK)
HOW TO EXPLAIN AND DEFEND CATHOLIC TEACHING USING COMMON SENSE, SIMPLE LOGIC, AND THE BIBLE
With foreword by Teresa Tomeo
Most of us know what we believe as Catholics, but often we are unclear on why we believe it. At a time when vast numbers of Catholics are slipping away from the Faith, God has tasked you and countless other Catholics with understanding it so you will be prepared to defend it.
With an easygoing and inviting style, EWTN’s John Martignoni doesn’t simply introduce you to the major doctrines of the Catholic Faith; he explains why they are true and shows you how to explain them effectly to Protestants and “cafeteria Catholics” alike in ways that will draw them into those truths.
Far from a complex survey of obscure theological points, this lively book employs clear, simple language that not only demonstrates the fundamental fact that the Bible is a Catholic book but also teaches Catholics how to “talk Bible” to non-Catholics. When you have read this book, you will know the biblical basis for the Church’s teachings on the sacraments, Purgatory, Mary, the papacy, and why salvation requires faith and works. You’ll also be versed in the strategies for effectively challenging other to examine their beliefs in light of the overwhelming scriptural evidence for Catholicism.
Blue Collar Apologetics will also teach you:
- Effective, commonsense tactics for defending the Faith against atheist attacks
- Four techniques that will allow you to talk to anyone about your Faith
- How to explain the Marian dogmas using the Bible and common sense
- The two key “pillars of Protestantism” - and how to respond to each
- The basics of Eastern Orthodoxy, which every Catholic needs to master
- How to counter the ingrained Protestant maxim “Once saved, always saved”
This book empowers average people in the pews—even those who might not know where Genesis is in the Bible!—to engage in evangelization and “talk Bible”, even with the most learned Baptist minister.Paperback. 336 pages. “This is an important book for the New Evangelization. It’s stocked with real answers to real questions. The language and approach are just right. Highly recommended.” —Scott Hahn,
Professor of Biblical Theology, University of Steubenville. “In these times, I’m convinced we need practical handbooks on the Catholic Faith rather than dense theological tomes.
Blue Collar Apologetics is an accessible, actionable guide to learning how to defend your Faith.”—Devin Rose,
