In Think and Believe, Frederick Marks challenges the reader to set aside long-held assumptions and prejudices against the Catholic faith. Marks argues convincingly for God’s existence, as well as the truth of Scripture, the establishment of the Church by Christ, and more. Think and Believe explains the controversies surrounding papal history, the Crusades, the Inquisition, and the Trial of Galileo. The sum total of this work is an effective and convincing defense of the Christian faith and the Catholic religion.
All of Mark’s arguments are presented with copious notes for easy identification of persons, events, or doctrines that may be unfamiliar. The reader will also find a detailed index and useful appendices on specific topics of Church teaching, including the sacraments, purgatory, celibacy, contraception, and the Blessed Mother.
