Truth Be Told: Basics in Catholic Apologetics
by Mark Hart and Joe Cady
Simple enough for a teen. Deep enough for a catechist. Truth Be Told is an excellent apologetics book that will help you answer some of today's most controversial Catholic doctrines and beliefs.
“…and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”– John 8:32
For 2000 years the Catholic Church has stood as a light beckoning to souls trapped in darkness, as the Guardian of Christ’s Truth in eras and cultures that sought to eradicate it. God’s truth is pure love, and that love must be known and shared.
Truth Be Told is a gift to the “Year of Faith,” a one-stop-shop that unpacks the most beautiful and controversial Catholic doctrines and beliefs in a manner simple enough for a teen to understand yet deep enough for a Catechist to grow in knowledge. The authors share answers to each topic both “in brief” and “in depth” – insuring that every reader knows how to articulate the faith in either way when conversations begin. Truth Be Told is a treasure for all Catholics and for any soul interested in learning more about “why” we believe what we believe.
Truth Be Told offers:
- Answers to sixty of the most frequently misunderstood and “debated” Catholic truths, including: the existence of God, the role of the Bible, the importance of Mary, the infallibility of the Pope, the reality of Tradition and so much more!
- Cross-reference with Sacred Scripture to demonstrate exactly “where” the foundation of teachings come from Biblically.
- Clearly delineated quotes, references and reading suggestions in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
- Suggestions for additional reading from Papal encyclicals, letters and other well-respected books faithful to the teachings of the Church.
