In this new and expanded edition, Defend the Faith! is more than just another book on Catholic apologetics. Born from Robert Haddad's personal encounters with numerous non-Catholics over 30 years, Defend the Faith! answers 165 objections against the Catholic Faith in 50 comprehensive and well-set out chapters. Robert not only continues to answer the usual questions from Protestant Christians but for the first time responds to the rising challenges of Islam and atheism. With over 1,500 references to Scripture, the Church Fathers and the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Defend the Faith! is ideal for anyone seeking a solid Biblical and historic defense of Catholicism.
"Defend the Faith! is a prime example of some of the exciting things happening in Catholic apologetics in Australia. There are few introductory books that cover so many topics so thoroughly and persuasively, based strongly on Scripture, along with Church Fathers and formal Church documents. It is a must for those who wish to lay a solid foundation for defending their Catholic Faith. I could not recommend a better book to those beginning their adventure in apologetics."
Fr Peter Joseph STD, from the Foreword.
“Always be prepared to make a defense to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you” (1 Pet. 3:15).
