Little more than a generation ago, apologetics was not a niche pursuit for extra-zealous Catholics—it was an integral part of instruction in the Faith.
Fr. Joseph Cavanaugh’s Evidence for Our Faith is a particular standout from that golden age.
First published in the late 1950s, right before ecumenism replaced apologetics and “comparative religion” crowded out catechesis in too many Catholic institutions, Evidence for Our Faith presents an uncommonly clear and systematic case for the truth of the claims made by Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church.
Originally written as an introductory text for Fr. Cavanaugh’s undergraduates, Evidence returns as an invaluable and enduring resource for Catholics today who want to deepen their understanding of—and ability to explain with confidence—the Church’s divinely ordained identity and authority.
