Hostile Witnesses: How the Historic Enemies of the Church Prove Christianity (Digital)

(2 reviews) Write a Review


One of the ways Jesus answered his critics was to use their own words against them—to show how even the enemies of the Faith admitted crucial facts that undermined their own position.

That’s a strategy that defenders of the Faith have taken to heart and employed through the ages - In fact, no matter how hostile and distorted the attacks on Catholicism have been in the centuries that followed, it’s proved impossible for critics to mount their attacks without tripping themselves up - and inadvertently testifying to the truth of what they’re trying to destroy.

With his book, Hostile Witnesses: How the Historic Enemies of the Church Prove Christianity, renowned author Gary Michuta introduces you to a veritable rogues’ gallery of the historic opponents of the Church, beginning with those recorded in the New Testament.

He flings open a treasure chest of little-known quotations from the enemies of the Faith and shows how they unwittingly testify to its truth. Herod the Great…the scribes and Pharisees…Voltaire…Martin Luther…John Calvin – Hostile Witnesses provides you with the key quotations from these and many other figures, showing how they inadvertently provide compelling evidence for the truth of the Faith.

    A must read for any Christian and dare I say mandatory for Catholics. Gary Michuta has made a powerful , clear and concise argument for Christianity/Catholicism utilizing the thoughts, statements, and etiology of anti christian thinkers throughout history. Thank you!!!!!

    Great deal for an incredible work of scholarship and much-needed answers to historical misconceptions which prevent many people from joining the Catholic Church.
