The popular bestseller Where is That in the Bible? showed the Scriptural basis for often-questioned Catholic doctrines. Now the same author tackles the other half of the divine revelation.

When non-Catholics dispute the Church's teachings, they often distort the facts. This book clears away the distortions and explains what the Church has always taught about hot topics like Mary, praying for the dead, and indulgences. It also explains the difference between Tradition with a capital T and the many traditions that are simply customary.
In fact, those doctrines that outsiders most often dispute are the very doctrines that, properly understood, bring people home to the Church. Share this book with a non-Catholic friend. You might be surprised by the results.
