Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Evangelical Protestants sometimes accuse Catholics of basing important doctrines on extrabiblical sources. Now Catholics will have a ready rejoinder: Patrick Madrid's Where Is That in the Bible? informs readers of the biblical origins of Catholic doctrines such as priestly celibacy, veneration of Mary and the saints, mortal and venial sins, and purgatory. While the tone is sometimes strident, the information is clear and conveniently organized by topic.

About the Author

Patrick Madrid is the founder and publisher of the award-winning Envoy magazine, a leading journal of apologetics and evangelization. He’s the author of several books including, Pope Fiction, Surprised by Truth, Surprised by Truth 2, and Any Friend of God’s is a Friend of Mine. He is the host of the popular EWTN television series "Pope Fiction."

More About the Author

PATRICK MADRID is a life-long Catholic. He has authored or edited 16 books on Catholic themes, including Search and Rescue, Where Is That in the Bible, and the acclaimed Surprised by Truth series.

In the fall of 2012, he will release four new books with four different publishers: Our Sunday Visitor, Servant Books, Saint Benedict Press, and Random House.

Since 1996, Patrick has published Envoy Magazine, and he also serves as the director of the Envoy Institute, which is dedicated to teaching Catholics how to explain their Faith more intelligently, defend it more charitably, and share it more effectively.

Commenting publicly on the effectiveness of Patrick's approach to doing apologetics, Cardinal Edward Egan, Archbishop Emeritus of New York, said, "How do you bring a friend or relative back into the Church? First you pray. Then, you follow Patrick Madrid's advice in [his book] Search and Rescue."

Prior to launching the Envoy apostolate, Patrick worked at Catholic Answers for eight years (1988 to 1996), where he served as vice president.

A veteran of a dozen formal, public debates with Protestant ministers, Mormon leaders, and other non-Catholic spokesmen, he has presented over 2000 seminars on Catholic themes, in English and Spanish, at parishes, universities, and conferences across the U.S. and around the world.

Patrick hosts the Thursday edition of EWTN's "Open Line" radio broadcast (3-5 p.m. ET), heard on approximately 195 AM & FM stations across the country, as well as on Sirius Satellite Radio channel 130 and globally via shortwave.

Patrick earned a bachelor of science degree in business at the University of Phoenix, as well as a B.Phil. in philosophy and an M.A. in dogmatic theology at the Pontifical College Josephinum (Columbus, OH).

He teaches theology and apologetics as an adjunct professor at Franciscan University of Steubenville.

Language was clear concise and easy to read yet very informative.

Then the book is great for any Catholic or any other Christian who truly wants to understand the TRUTH about "where is that in the Bible?"

He requested me to give him an audio/CD version of this book as a gift.

Format: Paperback
This book is not a theological compendium of all Catholic Beliefs.
If you want that, go buy a Catechism.
This book is not an apologetics manual for how to irrefutably defend the faith.
If you want that, I suggest Scott Hahn's tape series *Answering Common Objections*, or some other such material.
If we're clear on what this book is NOT, let's look at what it is.
It IS a reference book. It IS the kind of thing you want to keep handy at all times, or better yet, memorize it. It IS the sort of supplement that is nice to have when you KNOW the words of the bible, but you don't remember the chapter and verse. It IS the kind of thing that's nice when you KNOW the logic behind a teaching, but you need a list of bible verses that support it. It IS a kind of cross-reference guide that will help you become familiar with all the places in the bible that support Catholic teaching, so that you don't have to rely on one lonely proof-text.
This really is more like a Yellow Pages, with a handy tab-style reference on the sides of the pages, for fast, easy reference. It's a great investment, at a great price. Do yourself the favor of buying and memorizing this book.

Format: Paperback
This pocket-size book by veteran apologist Patrick Madrid is a powerful resource for Catholics that need a quick Bible verse to justify Catholic teachings.
Not only does each chapter handle the most common objections about the faith (the papacy, sola scriptura, the saints, Mary, and the sacraments), but each also provides a plethora of Biblical verses to support the Catholic teachings in each case.
The nice thing about this book, aside from its size (which makes it easy to carry with you), is that it provides Scripture for issues beyond the typical objections raised. Interested readers will discover Biblical citations on issues such as abortion, tithing, non-Catholic beliefs, drinking and other issues - giving it some merit even outside of Catholic circles.
While there are several books like this in existence, few have gathered so much good information all into one place.

Format: Paperback
The art of defending beliefs soley by scriptural reference is not one historically well developed in the Catholic church. Many times growing up, I would ask my mother or a faith formation teacher why Catholics believe something, and the response would be becuse the Church has always said that.

The fact is that the Church would not say something that was not supported by scripture, but when thrust into the Bible Belt as a teen, and constantly forced to defend my beliefs which were attacked as "unbiblical," I was not properly prepared for any such dialogue. Only saying "I know it's somewhere in the Bible" does not convince many minds, particularly when the people arguing with you appear to knwo that Bible more thoroughly and insist they never heard of anything to justify your belief.

I wish I had this book then. It is a great handbook for explaining the biblical roots of Catholic beliefs that generally come under attack or that seem difficult to explain by scritural references. Topics included (but are not limited to) the papcy, calling priests "father," communion of saints, Mary, relics, statues, purgatory, slavation, sola sciptura, and the sacraments. All faith formation prgrams should give a copy to all candidates for confirmation (if not a bit sooner) and RCIA. Also, every parent should have a copy so tht when the questions come up, they can quickly find the answers, if they do not remmebr the sources off hand. It also is helpful to people thining about leaving or returning to the Catholic Church, as well as those thinking about entering.

Patrick Madrid describes this book as the fruit of his study of scrpiture. That it comprises notes he made in the margins of his Bible to defend and explain Catholic beliefs.

Anything Patrick Madrid has written should be owned by any searching Christian, but this book is a must. You will want several copies. It is worth owning just for the first chapter where Patrick introduces one six (6) word sentence and shows how, with the emphasis on a different word each time you read that sentence, without knowing the context and history, you cannot truly understand what is being said. WOW! Now that was amazing, Mr. Madrid! Now we know why the 30,000 different denominations in the world cannot get along with others in their own denomination-not to mention cannot even have lunch with some of the other denominations. Then the book is great for any Catholic or any other Christian who truly wants to understand the TRUTH about "where is that in the Bible?" We are new converts and we are amazed (after years in the scripture) at the ignorance we had about the beliefs of the Church until we started studying Church History and books written by Madrid, Hahn, Keating and many more.
This book, Where is That in the Bible, is simple and filled with verses. Truth is a wonderful thing. Buy it now. You will love it.

Format: Paperback
Where has this book been all my life? I am so happy to have found it! It's given me hundreds of Bible verses (in context) that my husband and I can use in our discussions with our non-Catholic family and friends. So many of them are used to putting Catholics on the defensive with the magic question: "Where is that in the Bible? Hmmmm?" This book has the answers! I bought a copy at a parish conference the author spoke at, and since then I have bought several other copies to give out to friends. This book isn't an exhaustive or comprehensive explanation of all the Bible verses for all Catholic doctrines, and it doesn't pretend to be. Instead, I personally have found it to be a handy, clear, and extremely "user-friendly" quick reference book. And that's exactly what I and many, many Catholics have needed for so long. Now we have it with this wonderful new book.
