    Reconciling All Truth

Is faith reasonable?

What can we know about God through reason alone?

How can we make sense of Christian beliefs that seem to defy logic and science?

What can I say to people who claim that the God of the Bible is cruel and irrational?

We believe that God is one, and so is his truth. The mysteries he has revealed to the world, the teachings that his Church professes and safeguards, and the conclusions that we reach by the light of natural reason all harmonize and enrich each other. But in a world skeptical of faith and often too clouded by sentiment and sin to wield reason, it can seem that religious truth and rational truth must be enemies—or at least from different worlds. 20 Answers: Faith and Reason shows you how to restore the unity of truth that is our only basis for living a coherent life of the mind and of the soul, helping you tackle both secular skeptics and your own nagging doubts.

    Perhaps no single theological issue divides Catholics and Protestants, and along so many fine lines, as the question of salvation: namely, are we saved solely by profession of our faith in Jesus, or do our actions (and omissions) play a part? 20 Answers: Faith & Works gives a short and clearly readable explanation of the basic disagreements, provides a compelling case for the traditional Christian understanding that the Catholic Church professes even today, and holds out hope for increasing unity among all believers on this critical issue.

    Toward a Chaste Ordering of Desires

What does the Church actually teach about same-sex attraction?

If God created certain people gay, how can we say that it’s sinful for them to live that way?

Why should we listen to the Old Testament’s condemnation of homosexuality when Jesus never said anything about it?

How can we build authentic bridges of understanding with friends and family members who experience same-sex attraction?

In an age where marriage and the family are being redefined and traditional Christian moral norms recast as “hate,” it’s more important than ever to understand and be able to defend those things.

20 Answers: Homosexuality provides a faithful look at what the Bible, the Church, the natural law, and science have to say about same-sex attraction, and how we as Catholics and as a culture can respond with undiluted truth and compassionate love.

    Our Elder Brothers in the Faith

What are the basics of Jewish belief and practice?

How does modern Judaism differ from the Hebrew religion of the Old Testament?

Is Christianity to blame for historic anti-Semitism and for not doing enough to stop the Holocaust?

What should we do—and not do—to foster constructive dialogue with Jews about Jesus and the Catholic Church?

Judaism is the ancient foundation of Christianity, the religion of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob… and Jesus. Yet many Catholics, perhaps intimidated by its unfamiliar terms and traditions, remain ignorant of its beliefs. 20 Answers: Judaism dispels that ignorance with a helpful overview of Judaism’s history, its forms of worship and sources of doctrine, its various movements from biblical times to today, and more.

    The Lifelong Bond with a Noble Purpose

What is Christian marriage all about?

How can I know if I have found the right person to marry?

Is it true that divorced people are excluded from the Church?

Why is the Catholic Church seemingly obsessed with people’s sexual sins?

Whether you’re married, preparing for marriage, or just concerned about the future of our world, you’ll want to know more about the fundamental human institution that binds people together and makes a culture thrive.

20 Answers: Marriage and Sex provides a solid introduction to what marriage is, why it’s important, and how to make it work. It also gives sure guidance through today’s minefield of sexual sin and confusion, showing God’s way to marital happiness—and holiness.

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

20 Answers: Marriage and Sex is simply an outstanding primer on the truth, goodness, and beauty of marriage for anyone of good will. Firmly rooted on the meaning of natural and Sacramental marriage, Todd Aglialoro deftly weaves together the Scriptures - Old Testament and New - with the Catechism, history, social science, and the saints into a compelling witness to all that God has created for us. It is eminently readable because it asks and answers the questions that people are actually asking. I know. I have heard them over the past 25 years of marriage, NFP, and Theology of the Body ministry. I now include 20 Answers: Marriage and Sex as one of my Top 10 resources for marriage preparation and enrichment. It is that good. Faithful Catholics will recognize the traditional language and phrases of marriage and sexuality, but will now “connect the dots” to understand marriage within the tapestry of the whole Salvation Story. Aglialoro does a wonderful job rescuing difficult, countercultural teachings on marriage and sex from mere “imposed morality" by inviting the reader to see the Church’s teachings as logical, reasonable, coherent, and true. And not just true, but beautiful and hopeful! Even difficult topics such as divorce, adultery, contraception, and same-sex “marriage” can be understood in light of what we hope for in love, life, now and forever. I joyfully recommend 20 Answers: Marriage and Sex as a resource for everyone working in marriage, family, youth, and young adult ministry. - Damon Owens, Executive Director, joytob.org
