by: Austen Ivereigh and Kathryn Lopez
Since it was first released, How to Defend the Faith has given Catholics worldwide a new way of talking about their faith around the dinner table or at the office, getting across the Church's positions on contentious issues without losing their cool.
It's about learning the principles that allow you to step outside the negative frames imposed by the news media and being well-briefed on what the Church ACTUALLY thinks and even teaches about all the current "Hot Button" topics ... politics, gay people, marriage, women, sex abuse, and other more, that are in the news and on people's minds.
Now revised and updated, How to Defend the Faith includes new sections on what we can learn from Pope Francis's communication, advice on how to give a talk, be active on Twitter and other social media, and many other invaluable tips and principles gleaned from the authors' years of experience defending the Faith and putting the Catholic Church's case in the media.
Find your voice. Embody the New Evangelization.
Enjoy a new and better way to defend the Faith -- without ever having to raise your voice.
