It has been my strong desire for some time now to revise my book in order to emphasize ecumenism and unity proportionately a lot more than in the first (2004) edition. I'm much more interested in... More > finding common ground. I've also learned a thing or two about Orthodoxy over the past decade. I wanted this volume to be able to read by Orthodox and also Eastern Catholics, without having seizures or going into apoplectic fits (caused by my ignorance or overly polemical or biased writing). I exaggerate, of course, but perhaps not by much! Toward that end I have enlisted a very qualified Eastern Catholic friend to contribute significant portions to the revised edition: Fr. Deacon Daniel G. Dozier. The revision remains an apologetic for Catholicism and respectful critique of Orthodoxy, but now it also includes friendly ecumenical discussion and dialogue: feedback and input from the Eastern theological perspective. The overall tone, tenor, and goal is considerably different. Unity is stressed as much as apologetics.< Less

Cardinal Newman: Q & A in Theology, Church History, and Conversion By Dave Armstrong

Cardinal Newman stated “I am not a theologian” many times in his letters. In the strict “academic” or “scholarly” sense, indeed he was not. Yet in another broader... More > sense, he certainly was one. In any event, he wrote exquisitely on theology. His personal letters were "popular" and non-technical. In effect, here he becomes a catechist and apologist. Scholars write to and for other scholars, whereas Catholic catechists, apologists, and evangelists try to reach the masses (and Catholics) with the good news of the glorious fullness of the Catholic Christian faith. Moreover, in Cardinal Newman's writing we find extraordinary prose: a feast of 19th century eloquent English style; and we encounter a saintly man. My goal is to create almost a “systematic theology” from Cardinal Newman, by use of many topical categories. This volume may be of particular usefulness for possible converts, as well as Catholics seeking to revive an uncertain or tentative personal Catholic faith. There is much precious treasure here.< Less

To travel to Jerusalem or other places where the events of the Bible and life of Jesus took place, is not merely like any other trip. A Christian literally receives grace, and becomes closer to God... More > as a result. This book is a type of “adventure narrative” or spiritual odyssey: a firsthand report of what it felt like for our party of five as we traveled to all these holy sites in Israel. I will also be detailing some of the exciting archaeological discoveries that have been occurring in Israel and Jordan, and almost literally revolutionizing the field of biblical archaeology, and utilizing scriptural references to relate the places we visit to biblical history; along with the occasional exposition of the text. My hope is that a lively sense of the pilgrimage can be directly conveyed to the reader. For those, particularly who may never be able to visit the Holy Land, the goal is to make our pilgrimage come alive for you: so that you can experience something of what we felt.< Less

Biblical Proofs for an Infallible Church and Papacy By Dave Armstrong

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 humble aim is to demonstrate exactly that.< Less
