Publisher's Description:

"A Biblical Defense of the Catholic Faith
"THIS EXCITING BOOK SHOWS THAT, FAR FROM STRAYING FROM WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES, CATHOLICISM IS EMINENTLY AND THOUROUGHLY BIBLICAL. Indeed, Catholicism is the 'only' Christian religion that is in full conformity with what the Bible says. To demonstrate this, Catholic author Dave Armstrong (a former Protestant campus missionary) focuses on those issues about which Catholics and Protestants disagree the most: the role of the Bible as a rule of faith, whether we are justified by faith alone, whether doctrine develops, what the Eucharist really is, veneration of Mary and prayer to the saints, the existence of Purgatory, the role of penance in salvation, and, above all, the nature and infallibility of the papacy.
"Working patiently, systematically, and, above all, charitably (and citing Church councils, the Church Fathers, canon law, and the 'Catechism of the Catholic Church'), Armstrong begins his examination of each of these disputed issues with an authoritative statement and concise explanation of what the Catholic Church actually teaches.
"Then, with skill and tenacity, he subjects each teaching to microscopic scrutiny to measure its conformity with Scripture. Armstrong's rigorous, Scripture-packed analysis relies on hundreds of Bible passages (including verse from 229 of the 260 chapters in the New Testament!), shedding light on the meaning of those passages as well as on the meaning of the doctrines in question.
"The result?
"With a mastery of Scripture equal to that of the most committed Protestants, Armstrong demonstrates that the Catholic Church is the "Bible Church 'par excellence'," and that many common Protestant doctrines (such as 'sola Scriptura') are in fact themselves not biblical.
"Here is a book that will challenge sincere Protestants to reconsider their anti-Catholic assumptions; and that will lead Catholics to turn with greater eagerness and confidence to Scripture, where they will find a powerful biblical defense of their Catholic faith."
