Item description for Catholic Apologetics Today : Answers to Modern Critics : Does It Make Sense to Believe by William G. Most...
Fr. Most is now hailed as a distinguished Catholic writer and possibly one of the greatest Catholic theologians from the United States. This book is the answer many people have been searching for - a short book that covers all the old, nagging objections of skeptics and unbelievers, plus the modern doubts raised by contemporary writers regarding the beliefs which Catholics have always held since Apostolic times. Fr. Most explores apologetics in a thorough and creative manner, composing a work that is interesting for the beginning student as well as the advanced reader. The author poses the objections raised by contemporary theologians and answers them convincingly. He addresses modern issues and questions raised today with the soundest and most reliable replies. Among other questions covered are Christ as the Messias and whether we can believe the Gospels, miracles vs. scientific evidence, proofs for the existence of God, the problem of good and evil, can pagans be saved, how people come to have faith, the divine authorship of Scripture, the differences between Protestantism and Catholicism, the mistake of Luther, and much much more. This is a thoroughly modern book in its scholarship, yet one without the faintest taint of Modernism, and one that puts forth the truth of the Catholic Faith in an easy-to-understand style.

Former Student of Father Most Sep 30, 2005
Father Most was one of my professors during my studies for a Masters Desgree in Religious Studies. He was awesome! A photographic memory. One of the courses I took was a course where this book was the text. Wow! A blessing for sure. The book spells out in clear language a means to defend your faith and defend Christianity. This is a must read. If you find other Fr. Most books here or in a used book store - buy them!! Find his short articles on the internet and read them.
Review from the Publisher Mar 7, 2001
CATHOLIC APOLOGETICS TODAY. Fr. William Most. One of the most highly recommended authors in the field (now deceased) gave us an up-to-date Apologetics that is completely traditonal. Covers Christ as Messias, veracity of the Gospels, miracles, existence of God, good and evil, authorship of Scripture, can pagans be saved, etc. Continually popular.
Helpful Nov 28, 1999
Coming back to the faith after many years, I wanted to find out the many doubts and 'contradictions' I supposed I had. This book it has to be said is a good start. Fr Most summarizes well and tries to keep things to a laymans level, however to be honest I got lost half way through as it got a bit deep for me, but it did answer some questions I had and stenghtened my faith. All said, the best thing about this book is that you can continue to read it even though some of the content may be for the time unclear to you, it seems to have a certain fluency to it, no doubt a gift of the author.
Excellent Jan 22, 1999
Gives you theology in short bites that you can digest before moving on. It is more than apologetics, it is a theology primer. Wonderful thank you Father Most.
