The eBooks that we offer on this site are in PDF Format. In order to read PDF files you need to have the latest version of Adobe Reader. If you don’t have one you can get the latest version for free by clicking on the “Get Adobe Reader” button. Once you have your Adobe Reader click on the “Get Book” button of your choice. You can save the books on your computer for future reference by clicking on the save icon in the Adobe Reader or you can print them. If you burn it onto a CD or put it on a memory stick you can have a copy center print it from their copy machine. If you choose to do it this way be sure to have them print on both sides of the paper. Because the front and inner covers are one-sided, I have inserted a blank page after each of them. This was done so that they would remain one-sided when you have two-sided copies made.
And You Will Know The Truth
How to Explain and Defend The Catholic Faith
by Sebastian R. Fama
And You Will Know The Truth is a compilation of the “Essays” and “Early Church Fathers” sections of this website. Also included is a copy of “The Doctrinal Concordance of the Bible” and a copy of the “How Old is Your Church” page. As described elsewhere on this site the essays rely very heavily on Scripture in demonstrating the soundness of Catholic teaching.The book is formatted in a way that allows you to easily make copies of anything you may wish to use as a handout. The shorter essays fit onto a single page, the longer ones on two. Permission is given to copy and distribute everything in the book. It is best to have this book spiral bound at a copy center such as Kinkos or Staples. Spiral binding works best as it allows you to open the book up all the way when you want to make copies to give to friends or critics. As I have time I will write more essays and add them to the site as well as the book.

Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Early Church Fathers
by Michael J. Partyka
Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Early Church Fathers documents the deliberate misrepresentation of the writings of the Early Church Fathers by the Watchtower Society. Jehovah’s Witnesses are taught that the Early Church Fathers knew nothing of the doctrine of the Trinity. And yet when one examines the very writings of the Fathers they quote we are faced with an avalanche of evidence defending the Trinity. Evidence which can easily be verified by anyone.
Mr. Partyka also takes the Watchtower to task concerning their claim that Jesus was nailed to a torture stake and not a cross. Once again quoting the early Fathers as well as Scripture Mr. Partyka puts that claim to rest once and for all. This book, including the covers, is 53 pages long and in PDF Format (see note above on PDF files). Permission is given to copy and distribute everything in the book.

Catholic Apologetics Guide 101
Scriptural Reference for Catholic Apologetics
by Adadzie, Godwin Delali
Catholic Apologetics Guide 101 is a little book for those seeking a right understanding of Apologetics in the context of Catholicism. It is written in a simple and friendly manner. It is an attempt to look at some Catholic positions from a Biblical perspective. It is hoped that this book will appeal to the Catholic as well as to the non-Catholic reader. It is not written in a “scholarly” way, but as a plain “theological” statement.

A Prescription Against “Traditionalism”
by I. Shawn McElhinney
There are two kinds of Traditionalists. One group has a great appreciation for the Tridentine Mass (the pre Vatican II Liturgy) as well as other traditional devotions. This group is loyal to the Church and presents no problem. The other group rejects all of the changes which came about after Vatican II. They reject the new liturgy and consider themselves to be champions of the Council of Trent. Some even claim that there hasn’t been a legitimate pope since Pius XII (1958). Mr. McElhinney has done a masterful job in addressing the accusations of this second group of Traditionalists. Drawing on the writings of the Early Church Fathers, papal encyclicals, Canon Law and Scripture he demonstrates conclusively that the “gates of hell” have not prevailed against Jesus’ Church.
This book is not in PDF format and is posted on another web site (Matt’s Catholic Apologetics). Thus its use is subject to the terms and conditions listed on that site.
Free Doctrinal Concordance of the Bible
When someone tells you that Catholicism is unbiblical hand them a Doctrinal Concordance of the Bible. This concordance is a shortened version of the one that appears on the “Articles” page. Some have referred to them as “Scripture Cheat Sheets.” You can put them in your parish literature rack, use them as bulletin inserts, pocket references or handouts.
Just like the longer version, this concordance lists the Scripture verses that back up Catholic teachings. The short concordance is now available in three languages; English, Spanish and German. Click here to see which subjects are covered in this version. If you have an Adobe Reader you can click on the “Get Concordance” button below to get a PDF copy to save or print. If you don’t have an Adobe Reader click on the “Get Adobe Reader” button to get a free copy of the latest version. When making copies remember to print on both sides of the paper as there are two pages.
