CATHOLIC APOLOGETICS GUIDE 101
This is a little book for those seeking a right understanding of Apologetics in the contextof Catholicism. It is written in a simple and friendly manner. It is an attempt to look atsome Catholic positions in a Biblical perspective. It is hoped that this book should appealto the Catholic as well as to the non-Catholic readers. It is not written in a "scholarly"way, but as a plain "theological" statement with the hope of carrying conviction.This book does not pretend to be exhaustive. The field which it covers is too vast to admitof minute analysis. A good number of Catholics leave the Church every year due to poorunderstanding of the Faith and also the efforts of anti-Catholic groups and churches.
