Absolutely wonderful!!! Aug 30, 2005
These flash cards are wonderful for apologetics, but just a great way to learn about the faith. I am using them with my 11 year old daughter in homeschool and my husband as well.
Having converted to Catholicism, I already had many of the questions answered for me, but my children and husband are all cradle Catholics and never really encounter these questions. When they ask me, I answer their questions, but really how often do people ask these kinds of things?
I would recommend these for RCIA classes too. They're amusing enough with the cartoons and so friendly that you would never feel like you were attacking anyone else's faith.
I will have to get the 2nd set (available in September 2005).
Teach Your Children How to Defend Their Faith! May 1, 2004
I LOVE these cards!!! I used them last year with my 13-year-old son for apologetics. I thought that as a teenager, he would find them too cartoonish, but he loved them. We concentrated on a different card each week. I gave him a spiral notebook which became his "Apologetics Notebook." He would write out the Protestant objection (from the front of the card) and the charitable Catholic response (on the back of the card) on Monday. On Tues., Wed., and Thurs., he would look up the corresponding Bible verses (from the back of the cards) and write them out in the notebook. On Friday, I would role play with him to see how well he could defend his faith. We made it fun and yet challenging.
I've also used these cards with my 4th-grade CCD class and my husband borrows them now and then for his Confirmation CCD class.
I became a devoted Catholic when a well-meaning Evangelical neighbor made a point to tell me, each and every time we got together, why my Catholic faith was in error. Fortunately, I researched her assertions and found Truth. Unfortunately, I know other uninformed Catholics who did not know how to refute her anti-Catholic charges and in turn left the faith. Don't let this happen to you or your children. Use these cards and other resources to learn about, and as a result fall in love with, the Catholic Church!
Move over grammar flash cards, there's a new card in town! Aug 11, 2001
Where have these cards been all my life? The Friendly Defenders Catholic Flash Cards are the first flash cards of their kind. They present the most common objections people have regarding the Catholic faith, accompanied by short, Scripture-based responses. The full-color, 50-card set features objections in twelve categories, including questions about confession, Mary, Salvation, and the Eucharist.
Designed for kids ages 8 to 108, the cards are engaging. They are illustrated with five Catholic kids like �Joyful Joey� and �Gracious Grace� responding to questions from five non-Catholic kids like �Curious Connie� and �Questioning Quincy.� On the front of one card for example, �Questioning Quincy� asks, �How can you believe a piece of bread is really Jesus?� On the backside, �Gracious Grace� says �Jesus called himself �The Bread of Life�� and reinforces the quote up with Scripture John 6:51 and related verses.
The Friendly Defenders Catholic Flash Cards will be a welcome addition to any Catholic parent or educator�s bookshelf. A great tool in the "New Evangelization", these cards will equip the youthful evangelizer to actively defend their faith against the most common arguments and questions.
My own children, allow below the recommended age group, sat for nearly an hour as I read the cards to them and repeatedly asked me to "Read this one, read this one!"
I would highly recommend these cards for Catholic homeschoolers, catechists and religious education instructors, RCIA coordinators, and both children and adults interested in learning about their faith....
