Do you want to learn how to defend and explain… The existence of God… The reliability of the Bible… The Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist… The authority of the pope and the Church… and scores of other truths that we Catholics believe— but you don’t have a lot of time?

Don’t worry. Jimmy Akin has done the hard work for you.

All you need is five minutes a day.

In A Daily Defense, Jimmy compiles 365 challenges that Catholics often hear from skeptics and non-Catholics—about God, Jesus, Scripture, morality, Mary, history, and a host of doctrines—and teaches you how to answer them.

Combining deep learning with decades of experience explaining Catholic belief and practice on a popular level, he cuts to the heart of each subject, offering pithy but powerful replies that are both effective and easy to master.

A Daily Defense is perfect reading before bed or during breakfast, for down time or prayer time, part of a regular routine or picked up on the go. Whatever your day is like, spending just a few minutes in these pages is guaranteed to equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to defend the Catholic Faith.

    Handy to read everyday. It helps reenforce the bible and provide solid explanations as to why we are Christian. Thanks for writing this book. Praise Jesus our lord and saviour.

    Perfect for Beginners

    Posted by Angelica on Feb 12th 2022

    Bought this because I found myself tongue-tied and frustrated when Protestant friends came at me about various Catholic beliefs, and I felt overwhelmed at the sheer volume of material available when it comes to apologetics. These bite-sized, digestible rebuttals to common accusations are perfect for beginners like me!

    Dinner time discussion with the family has taken on a new rigor with Akin’s book. Reading aloud a page each evening is a fantastic way to catechize the family.
