Beatles, Motown, Beach Boys, Etc.: Classic Rock Discographies, Commentary, and Mono vs. Stereo Analysis By Dave Armstrong

More > Beatles, The Beach Boys, Detroit Rock (1965-1975), Buddy Holly, Sam Cooke, and Van Morrison: including data concerning stereo and mono versions, recording dates, producers, songwriters, Billboard chart positions, best-sounding recordings, and many other facts.

The Catholic Mary: Quite Contrary to the Bible? By Dave Armstrong
eBook (ePub): $2.99
The theology and beliefs concerning the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of our Lord Jesus, have long been a contentious issue between Catholics and Protestants. The latter often maintain that "the... More > Catholic Mary" is a corruption of the true biblical Mary: the humble and lowly handmaiden. Catholic apologist Dave Armstrong shows how the "Catholic" and the "biblical" Mary are indeed one and the same. Tackling controversial topics such as Mary's Immaculate Conception, Assumption, and perpetual virginity, asking Mary to intercede, the Rosary, the flowery and seemingly excessive devotional language of the saints, and Mary as a distributor of God's grace and salvation (just as St. Paul and indeed all of us are intended to be), Armstrong provides biblical and rational support for all Catholic Marian beliefs and practices: making them accessible, understandable, and able to be espoused by all who accept the inspiration of the Bible.< Less

In many ways, John Calvin (1509-1564) has shaped the subsequent history of Protestantism even more than Martin Luther himself. Book IV of John Calvin's monumentally influential work of systematic... More > theology, "Institutes of the Christian Religion" ("Of the Holy Catholic Church") gets to the heart of the disagreement between Catholics and Protestants. The present work is an in-depth critique of the major themes of this portion, from a biblical and Catholic perspective (hence the title). The back-and-forth, socratic nature of this volume allows the reader to consider Calvin’s arguments and then ponder orthodox Catholic replies to them, in order to decide which are more plausible; which have a “ring of truth” to them. The goal of this volume is to concentrate on rational arguments from Scripture and history. Also included are 66 "ecumenical" pages detailing where Catholics and Calvin (and Calvinists) can agree (surprisingly, on a great many things).< Less
Biblical Proofs for an Infallible Church and Papacy By Dave Armstrong
eBook (ePub): $2.99
This volume consists entirely of materials posted on my website / blog: "Biblical Evidence for Catholicism": written between 1997 and 2011: several in direct response to Protestant queries... More > or challenges. I’ve revised them in order to clarify the thoughts and to “tighten” up the arguments. My goal is to defend and clarify what Catholics believe with regard to ecclesiology, or the doctrine of the Church (including the papacy), why we do, and to demonstrate that Catholic beliefs are in harmony with Holy Scripture and the doctrines held by the early Church. Protestants deny the infallibility of the Church, and hold that Scripture alone is the only final, infallible authority (denying that characteristic to the Church and apostolic tradition and the papacy). Therefore, if Catholics can show that an infallible Church and papacy are squarely based on Scripture, Protestants would be bound to those beliefs, by their own rule of faith (sola Scriptura). My aim is to demonstrate exactly that.< Less
Biblical Catholic Salvation: ""Faith Working Through Love" By Dave Armstrong
eBook (ePub): $2.99
Catholic apologist and author Dave Armstrong leads the reader on a fascinating theological journey through many different aspects related to salvation and justification theology (soteriology).... More > Special emphasis is devoted to demonstrating that Catholics do not believe in "works-salvation". It may surprise some to learn that Catholics, like Protestants, embrace Grace Alone and reject Pelagianism and also semi-Pelagianism. The overwhelming theme is the biblical evidence for Catholic soteriological positions. To that end, there are 379 biblical passages fully written out (RSV), for the convenience of the reader. The final 115 pages (out of 187): chapters 10 through 16, are devoted specifically to a critique of Calvinism (or self-described "Reformed" theology) and its beliefs with regard to the five points of what is known as "TULIP" (total depravity, unconditional election, limited atonement, irresistible grace, and perseverance of the saints).< Less

Biblical Catholic Apologetics: A Collection of Essays By Dave Armstrong
eBook (ePub): $2.99
The carefully selected “essays” presented here were originally written and posted on my blog between the years of 2000 and 2013. I consider them to be some of my best: the “cream of... More > the crop” of what has not yet been published in a book. A few have been condensed down from their original dialogue formats. Per the subtitle, I'd like this collection to be more along the lines of essays per se, with less written-out Bible verses: a bit more readable and flowing, so to speak. A good deal of my apologetics writing or research is more for the purpose of reference / documentation rather than “straight reading.” The 23 chapters will be organized under seven broad topics. In order, they are: 1) Observations on Catholic Apologetics, 2) Bible and Tradition / Rule of Faith, 3) Justification and Salvation, 4) Sacramentalism, 5) Purgatory, 6) Prayer and the Communion of Saints, and 7) The Blessed Virgin Mary. My sincere hope is that this book is edifying, educational, and enjoyable for the reader.< Less
