No Catholic should pass beyond the age of 16 without being able to answer clearly, both to himself and to others, the challenges of those who do not believe in the existence of God, of Christ or the teachings of the Catholic Church. In this compact book, Fr John Laux gives both the student and the adult reader dozens of excellent, well reasoned answers to the classic objections against the Catholic Faith. He covers all the fundamental truths of the Faith. Providing both facts and sound logical reasoning for every question he considers. Every Catholic should have a firm grounding regarding the reasonableness of his beliefs, lest he fall victim to the superficial objections of of the world which have been refuted over and over again for years, even for centuries. From this book, the reader will derive the confidence that there are not only answers, but excellent, thought provoking, logical answers to any and all difficulties abut the Faith which may arise. Fr Laux's presentation is thus a powerful tool to help souls hold fast with firm confidence to their Faith which time and again has proved to be the bulwark of sanity in this world, as well as the inestimable Pearl of Great Price for which true believers will sacrifice anything to possess.
Father John Laux, M.A., was a high school religion teacher who wrote his own Catholic curricular books after spending a large number of years teaching and researching. His works were first published in 1928 and include Catholic Apologetics, Mass and the Sacraments, Introduction to the Bible, Catholic Morality and Church History. He capsulated the Catholic faith extremely well, thanks to his lively prose and succinct way of accurately explaining the details of theology. Though Father Laux originally wrote his books for high school students, they remain very informative for those in college and even adulthood as well. He wrote in a timeless, direct and to-the-point style that continues to present Catholics with in-depth explanations of their faith today.
