Imagine trying to study and teach Catholicism to prospective students in class and to prospective converts in the street. With over 300 pages, this handy guide gives you a summary of summaries of Catholic teaching, almost like taking down lecture notes in class. Good for the prospective evangelist.

Imagine a summarized Catechism in point form and short paragraphs with each chapter on every major aspect of religion glanced and explained - everything from presenting the existence of God to a complete non-believer to explaining Cathoic doctrines to Protestants. This guide has a short but valuable introduction on how to respond to Muslims too and make them see the Light of Christ!

Further in-depth studies are recommended.
Each chapter closes with common questions from prospective converts.
This guide is not a comprehensive study of Catholicism.

Format: Paperback
Frank Sheed (1897-1981) was an Australian layman, and Maisie Ward was his wife; they started the Sheed & Ward publishing company, and were public lecturers in the Catholic Evidence Guild. Frank wrote many other books such as Theology and Sanity, Theology for Beginners, etc.

These "outlines" are primarily intended as a resource for speakers: there is a "Course I" for "Junior Speakers," and a "Course II" for Senior Speakers. They are presented in "rough" language (e.g., with frequent incomplete sentences), and thus literal quotation from it is not recommended.

In the section on the authenticity of the Gospels, they state, "This lecture not to prove inspiration. In it the gospels to be treated as ordinary documents. The Gospel existed before the gospels, and if these had never been written or had perished, IT would stil remain. But if the existing gospels were false, Christianity would fall, as the Church has pledged herself to their credibility." (Pg. 167)

They admit, "Although reason cannot show any contradiction in the concept of three persons in one nature, we could never know from reason alone that it was so. The Trinity is wholly a matter of revelation, and though hinted at again and again in the Old Testament and implicit throughout, it belongs to the New Testament." (Pg. 178)

They observe, "The family is the main support of the State; and the Church is the main support of the family; and no other support one quarter as efficient can be found.

This is a training manual for street corner apologetics. The topics are given in the form of a lesson or lecture, with additional reading listed, and a set of tough questions to answer after. The information in the topics is outlined only with very little explanation. You have to do the homework for that (read the recommended texts). In order to do the homework you will have to get the reading materials which may be difficult unless you have access to a Catholic Library. Some may be available from the Catholic Truth Society.

Seems a bit outdated in many ways - and is designed for a structure apologistics program. The information is good, but very dense.
