Biblical Catholic Answers for John Calvin By Dave Armstrong
eBook (PDF): $1.99
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
Victorian King James Version of the New Testament: A “Selection” for Lovers of Elizabethan and Victorian Literature By Dave Armstrong
eBook (PDF): $1.99
Many revisions of the King James (Authorized) Bible of 1611 exist; even revisions of revisions have been done (ASV to NASB / RV to RSV / KJV to NKJV, etc.). The present work is a similar... More > “hybrid”. I don't know Greek, and am therefore not qualified in the slightest to actually translate (and did not translate a single word). But I know English (as a professional author) and know the Bible (as a longtime Christian apologist) very well. This work, accordingly, isn't technically a new translation at all, but rather a “selection” or collection of what I personally felt were the best renderings that maintained the KJV style as much as possible without the archaisms. When I updated the olde English language, I sought to maintain a "high" Victorian 18th-19th century style of (British) English. This NT "selects" from the following six translations (all in the public domain): 1) KJV (1611; rev. 1769), 2) Rheims (1582; rev. 1750), 3) Young's Literal (1887), 4) Weymouth (1903), 5) 20th Century (1904), 6) Moffatt (1922).< Less

More > special presence of God in physical objects in the OT, 2) comparison of the indwelling & the Real Presence, 3) doubting disciples in the eucharistic discourse of John 6, 4) exclusion of non-Catholics from Catholic communion, 5) St. Augustine's & John Calvin's views, 6) the Church fathers on the Sacrifice of the Mass, 7) St. Paul's "priestly" references, 8) biblical, analogical arguments for the Sacrifice of the Mass, 9) the Protestant "idolatry" accusation, and 10) biblical evidence for wholehearted formal, liturgical worship.

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
