    The Ancient Foundation of Our Faith

What kinds of books are in the Old Testament?

Do the laws of the Old Testament still apply to us today?

Who were some of its important priests, prophets, kings, and other major figures?

Now that we have the New Covenant and Gospels, how is the Old Testament still relevant to Christians?

Even for many believers, the Old Testament can be a dense, daunting collection of exotic names, places, and practices. Its sprawling histories can overwhelm us, its strict rules and rituals even scandalize us. 20 Answers: The Old Testament helps you make sense of it all—not only by breaking down its key themes, figures, and timelines in an easy-to-understand way but also by showing its beautiful continuity with the revelation of Jesus Christ.

The 20 Answers series from Catholic Answers offers hard facts, compelling arguments, and clear explanations of the most important topics facing the Church and the world—all in a compact, easy-to-read package.

    What does the Church teach about that?

Sometimes this seems like a question with more than one answer. The Catholic Church claims to possess the fullness of Christian truth, but getting to the truth on some matters of doctrine or morals can be a challenge—with different popes, documents, and theologians treating them with different levels of authority and shades of meaning.

This can lead not only to personal confusion but—increasingly in our day—conflict and disagreement among Catholics.

In Teaching with Authority, Jimmy Akin shows you how to get it all straight.

Not another catechism or “Catholicism for beginners” book, Teaching with Authority isn’t about understanding specific teachings of the Faith (even the complicated and misunderstood ones) but rather about understanding Catholic teaching itself. Where does the Church’s teaching authority come from? How do we weigh dogmas versus practices, doctrines versus disciplines, conciliar declarations versus papal interviews? How do we sort through the many kinds of ecclesial documents and determine their relative authority and relevance?

And, in an age when accusations of “heresy!” fly regularly across social media, with competing sides eager to paint the other as unfaithful to Catholic tradition or to the current pope, Jimmy also tackles the issues of incredulity, apostasy, and schism—showing you how to recognize different forms of dissent and respond to them fittingly.

A unique, valuable, and long-overdue resource for all Catholics as well as those inquiring about the Faith, Teaching with Authoritywill help deepen your understanding of what the Church teaches by showing you (maybe for the first time) how and why and where it does.

    Scriptural Head-Scratchers

What are the two basic interpretation problems we encounter when we read the Bible?

How can we deal with difficulties arising from translation differences, copyist errors, and varying literary genres?

Can we really say the Bible is inerrant when it seems to contain so many internal contradictions about allegedly factual events?

How do we explain apparent errors in Scripture on matters of science and history, or moral problems concerning violence or women’s rights?

The Bible is a source of wisdom, inspiration, and comfort. As Catholics we also believe it is God’s inerrant word. But sometimes we read something that just makes us say, “Huh?” 20 Answers: Bible Difficulties helps clear up the confusion by giving you the tools to recognize—and reconcile—common kinds of Bible difficulties, and by addressing the specific ones that most often embolden skeptics and dismay believers.

The 20 Answers series from Catholic Answers offers hard facts, compelling arguments, and clear explanations of the most important topics facing the Church and the world—all in a compact, easy-to-read package.
