What you will learn from this book...
 
"Massive: A Comprehensive Work In Catholic Theology"
 
Description: In a presentation of his conversion story Catholic Apologist, Scott Hahn, had this to say about the Catholic faith, “What we discovered was that the Catholic Church almost doesn’t even need a defense. It’s more like a lion; just let it out of its cage and it takes care of itself.”  

So often, many of the objections from so-called skeptics amount to little more than a misunderstanding about the truth of the Catholic faith. With these people, it is astonishing to see how quickly their objections come to nothing after being presented with a well-articulated exposition of the faith.   

The problem is, that so few Catholics today have been given the resources to offer a clear expression of the eternal truths of our Faith. What modern Catholics need is A Manual of Catholic Theology by Joseph Wilhelm.    

If you want to be able to know your faith, love the Lord, and be a light to the truth then just open up this book and let the lion out of its cage…  


This is a CLASSIC work from Joseph Wilhelm  no Catholic today should be without.
