Book Review: Mary

Mary was written by a former Fundamentalist, Tim Staples. In this booklet, Staples provides “biblical evidence for Marian doctrine and devotion, answers common objections to Catholic teachings, and guidance on how to imitate Christ – which we should do in all things – by loving and honoring his mother.” This is an excellent defense of …

Book Review: Scripture and Tradition

This Lent and Easter Season, I took on the Catholic Answers challenge. As I mentioned in the original post, I was recommending it without reading the books.
