Reviews - What do customers think about On Christian Truth?
On Christian Truth Mar 30, 2000
I studied "Apologetics (defense of the faith)" as part of my coursework for a Masters degree in Christian Ministry and Renewal in the mid 1980s. This was one of three texts used in the course, and was an outstanding work. Harry Blamires, we were informed, would often do public square appearances where he would welcome open dialogue about Catholic apologetics. This piqued our interest in what he had to say, and this book said it well. It was neatly organized, and used a common sense approach to make his points, and not lofty, hard-to-digest theological text. He obviously tried to capture how he would speak to those he engaged in discussion! The book contains such issues as: does God exist, the role of the Church, the role of Mary, and more. A few years ago, a neighbor's son, who was a student at the University of Georgia, had to do a book report on defending the existence of God, and asked me if I had a book he could use. I loaned him this text, and he used Harry Blamires' arguments to the max -- and "Aced" the report! For other similar texts, you might read: "Catholic and Christian," by Dr. Alan Schreck, and "Theology for Beginners," by Frank Sheed.
