Item description for The One-Minute Apologist: Essential Catholic Replies to Over Sixty Common Protestant Claims by Dave Armstrong...
Overview If you're looking for solid Catholic answers to common Protestant challenges, but don't 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 he's a convert from Evangelicalism, Armstrong presents these anti-Catholic claims with an insider's accuracy using the special terms, references, and follow-up arguments that you're 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. 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 you'll find yourself turning to whenever you have the need to defend the Catholic Faith quickly, credibly, and well.

The next time you hear: "Catholicism isn't biblical"... Jul 25, 2008
We've all had it happen. Someone asks you if you've accepted Jesus as your personal Lord and savior. You tell them: "Uh, Yea. I guess so.... I'm catholic". Then they proceed to give you a hundred reasons why your church isn't biblical and that you need to be "saved". You leave the conversation feeling somewhat confused, and a even little violated.
The next time you hear: "Catholicism isn't biblical" from a well meaning protestant friend, relative, co-worker or complete stranger, you'll be ready to defend your faith with evidence right out of the bible itself! Dave Armstrong takes all of the common protestant charges of "man made rules" and blows them right out of the water with loads of Bible verses to solidly support the catholic position regading The Mass, The Holy Eucharist, confession to a priest, The Priesthood, The Sacraments, The Papacy, Mary and the Saints, Works & Faith, Church authority.... and much more.
For example: If you are Catholic, but feel helpless when trying to defend your faith from being attacked by "bible only" christians who ask you if you are "saved". Lay this on them: "...... he who endures to the end shall be saved!" Matthew 24:13
You no longer have to stand there and get beat up with bible verses from well meaning but ignorant people who think the Catholic Church is a false religion, cult or worse! The One Minute Apologist is like having a .357 magnum strapped to your hip ready to shoot down all of the false charges, misrepresentations and outright lies against the Catholic Church, her teachings, and wonderfully rich 2000 year history as The One True Church founded by Jesus Christ Himself.
Pick up a copy of this great book and share it with all of your Catholic friends and family. You'll never be caught off guard again! Heck, you might even bring a few of the lost sheep home to the Church!
