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 366 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.

    Jimmy is---as usual---outstanding - As a former Protestant Minister (25 years) I simply thought Sola Scriptura was not biblical, not historical, not workable, and not logical - Now I also know it's not practical (Day 16) - Have a most blessed day in the LORD - Love - Jerry Caterino

    I’ve tried to read other apologists’ books and could never wade through the too-deep explanations. This is easy reading on a day-to-day basis. Easy & interesting.

    Just started it but it does appear to have many common non-Catholic statements with a Catholic explanation.

    Well written. It presents questions I’ve never thought about or had given to me. I like Jimmy Aiken’s well thought out logic

    This book has a lot of good explanations as how to answer those who mock or reject the Catholic faith.
