The second in the "Prove It!" series, this book answers real questions teens have about the Catholic Church. Welborn addresses such issues as the literalist reading of Scripture and why Church teaching rests on both Scripture and tradition.

Publishers Description
Straightforward answers to questions teens have about the Church, including what it means to be saved. The book doesn't talk down to teens, but it does give clear answers in a way anyone can understand. It's especially good for teens who don't know what to say to their fundamentalist friends.

More About Amy Welborn

Amy Welborn Amy Welborn is a well-known, popular freelance writer. She is the author of many books on prayer, the saints and apologetics. Amy lives with her family in Birmingham, Alabama.

In the author's own words...

I was born in 1960, an only child then and now. My father,a political scientist, passed away in October 2011. My mother, deceased since 2001, was a teacher, librarian and artist. The Catholicism comes from her side.

I grew up in a number of places - Indiana - Washington, DC - Lubbock Texas - Arlington, Virginia - DeKalb, Illinois - Lawrence, Kansas - and Knoxville, Tennessee, where we settled in 1973. I attended Knoxville Catholic High School, then the University of Tennessee where I majored in history. I received an MA in Church History from Vanderbilt University, where I wrote a thesis on the changing role of women in 19th century American Protestantism, and the ways Scripture was used to justify those changes.

I have worked as a teacher in Catholic high schools, and a Parish Director of Religious Education. I started writing for the diocesan press - the Florida Catholic - in 1988. I've written columns for Our Sunday Visitor and Catholic News Service as well at times over the past twenty years. I've been writing full time since 1999. My articles have been published in venues ranging from Our Sunday Visitor to the New York Times to Commonweal. I've written nineteen books and many pamphlets and study guides. I am a regular contributor to the Living Faith and Living Faith for Kids devotionals.

I have five children, ranging in age from 29 to 7.

For 8 1/2 happy years beginning in 2000, I was married to Michael Dubruiel, who had worked as an editor for Our Sunday Visitor for nine years, but in the summer of 2008 changed jobs to serve as Director of Evangelization for the Diocese of Birmingham, Alabama.

On February 3, 2009, Michael died while running on the treadmill at the gym. My new book,Wish You Were Here: Travels Through Loss and Hope, is a memoir of those first few months, which included a sort of crazy decision to travel to Sicily.

Amy Welborn currently resides in Fort Wayne, in the state of Indiana. Amy Welborn was born in 1960.

Reviews - What do customers think about Prove It!: Church?

Very informative.  Mar 30, 2008
This book is very accomplished at what its intended for - a guide for teens to defend their faith against Evangelicals who see fit to attempt to convert Catholics at any given chance. It has worked well for me and has inspired me to go even further into the book and go into apologetics in general, and I have it on loan to a friend who has been having these very same issues. She loves it as well.

It is down-to-earth and detailed, and is respectful yet blunt about fundamentalist Christians and their beliefs.
Written for teenws but great for everyone  May 19, 2006
I bought this book ofr my preteen daughter, but found it very informative myself.
Amy Wellborn does a great job of explaining and defining the faith from a Catholic perspective.
She keeps her presentation light hearted, but packs the book with solid research and provides references for her beliefs.
This book provides both scriptural and historical support for the claim that the Catholic Church is the one started by Christ.
I also recommend her other books on God and Jesus.
highly recommended  Mar 30, 2006
My 6th grader really, really enjoyed this book. Not only that, but he asked for the other books in the series! Amy Welborn has done a fine job of being charitable while defending the faith...without pulling any punches.
Prove It Church  Sep 14, 2005
The first page I read sounded VERY interesting and I bought the book specifically for a 6th grader based on that. However the remainder of the book did not continue the story I had read on the first page. That was disappointing. The rest of the book provides basis for addressing questions. Not as entertaining as I had hoped and not an easy enough read to hold the interest of a 6th grader. I'll finish reading it, but I don't think I can convince my 6th grader to read it.
Easy to Understand  Jul 4, 2004
Very easy to read and understandable--great if you're just starting out with apologetics.
