Defending the Christian Faith with Reason, History, and Scripture.
BELOW are articles, references, books, and links that we've found helpful in discovering God's revealed truth and defending the Gospel of Jesus Christ as it has been taught the last 1900 years in the Roman Catholic Church.

Mary was chosen by God the Father,
espoused to the Holy Spirit,
and carried within her the presence of God in the flesh.
No other human being knew God so well
or was as close to God as Mary.
Not even Moses.
If you contemplate that,
then ANYTHING the church believes about Mary
is small potatoes and easy to embrace. (Pam Williams)

"Letter to Phyllis"
My aggravation with the fallacies used by anti-Catholics is modestly evident in this response to a Nineveh's Crossing "customer" who requested a catalog after watching part of COMMON GROUND on TBN. The letter begins with an explanation of the three major fallacies anti-Catholics use in their attempt to debunk Catholicism. It then goes on to explain the Bible -- to someone who told me to study my Bible more closely. This is also a person who claimed to have been raised in the Catholic Church, so some chastisement is necessary.
"Merry Christmas - 2005"
Another essay on the etymology of "Merry Christmas" and how Western culture's heightened importance of individualism has probably changed the phrase over the centuries.
Pam Exhibits Uncharacteristic Behavior
While her parents were out of town and at their request, Pam took her brother to his regular Baptist Church one Sunday evening. Much to her surprise, everyone there, and everyone that knows her, she was unable to sit quietly in her pew when the visiting missionary started to demean Catholicism.
Book Review: The Catholic Verses, by Dave Armstrong
A number of former Protestant Evangelicals, like me, claim that the reason we became Catholic was that for the first time the Bible, as a whole, suddenly made sense. In this book, Dave Armstrong explains why, as Protestants, we had so much difficulty. This article first appeared on the Catholic Exchange June 24, 2005, and clicking on the link above will take you to that page. Dave is a good friend of ours who lives near us in a suburb of Detroit. After his conversion from Evangelicalism in the early 1990s, David has developed one of the largest and most effective Christian Apologetic websites in the world. Biblical Evidence for Catholicism.
Confess to a Priest? Heavens. No!
Pam's concise email response to a close Protestant-Evangelical friend on why there are priests, their role in confession, and the Biblical justification.

A Lutheran Theologian Comments on Sola Scriptura
Respected Lutheran theologian rejects Sola Scriptura as it is understood by most Evangelicals and Protestants. In so doing this Lutheran theologian provides a general description on the importance of Sacred Tradition that agrees with the Catholic understanding and critical nature of tradition that all faiths must have in order to sustain their belief system.
Martin Marty, Ph.D.
The Bible Interprets Itself
Therapy after an argument with Lutherans who claim to be members of the original Catholic Church. A very novel concept. They don't claim to be Protestants, because they (via Luther) are not protesting, but where rather excommunicated. Hmmm!?
Dialogue with an Evangelical friend about the Catholic Church's corner on truth. Dialogue explores the difference between confidence in truth and arrogance -- a common criticism against Catholicism by liberals who want the Church to "update their teachings" -- except this complaint comes from a right wing fundamentalist. Will relativism never end?
