I'm very excited about an ebook I purchased recently and wanted to spread the word. James Garton has edited and annotated the great apologetical work of James Cardinal Gibbons, The Faith of Our Fathers. In addition to providing useful summaries for every chapter, he has provided a nice biography as an addendum. The formatting is excellent overall (a frequent deficiency in many ebooks, unfortunately). It's hard to improve on this classic, but Garton has done so and impressively. The price is a mere $1.99, a steal for the quality, so he hasn't done this to get rich. I highly recommend this book to Catholic neophytes and sages, and open-minded Protestants who want to learn about what the Catholic Church really believes. Gibbons was a noted evangelist and interrelious pioneer, he spoke in as many or more Protestant churches than he did in Catholic ones in his early years. The book was written with Protestants in mind as well as Catholics.
Must have for any one of the Christian faith that interacts with anyone of the Protestant faiths. Although the book was written in 1876, the common objections that many Protestants have to the Christian faith are addressed in straight forward language that is often easier to understand and remember than official church teachings. It is the reviewers opinion that this is due to Protestant objections having changed very little since 1876 and the Christian Church having changed even less. This book is not a substitute for Holy Scripture; however, the author uses Holy Scripture to support his position. The 1800's language used is for advanced readers by modern standards and the words are used in a more literal meaning than what many modern readers may be used to.
This book quite literally changed my life. I was raised protestant but then decided to brush up on my anti-Catholic apologetics. I began reading the early church fathers (which shocked me to death to say the least) and eventually read this book. By the time I got here to Cardinal Gibbons apologetic work I was open to receive it. Great book, Great writing and beautiful explanations!
