About the Author

The Rev. Father Anthony F. Alexander was a priest and author of the twentieth century. Additionally, he used to work with the Department of Theology at John Carroll University. His College Apologetics: Proof of the Truth of the Catholic Faith was written for the college-aged student, and treats the topic classically, reasonably, and logically. Father Alexander's work was first published in 1954 by the Henry Regnery Company, Illinois, with the Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur. It was also printed by TAN in 1982.

Format: Paperback
Catholic students lose their faith at colleges - "Catholic" and non-Catholic alike - in record numbers today. At an age naturally given to questioning the values they have been raised with, college students are often all too open to seemingly rational assaults on the Faith. In this book, former John Carroll University Professor Fr. Alexander presents air-tight, rational arguments for Catholicism in a manner sure to appeal to any university or upper level High School student sincerely interested in finding out the truth about God, the Universe, and his or her self. Starting with the existence of God, Fr. Alexander continues by showing that God founded a specific religion, that that religion is the one called Catholic, and that everyone has an obligation to join the Catholic religion. This book is essential armor for any intelligent young Catholic going off to a university, or whose Faith is threatened in High School. It is also good for non-Catholic college students making inquiry about ultimate truths. Ideal for Godparents and everyone who wants to explain the Faith to others. Ironclad logic!

Format: Paperback
At the time this book was written in 1954, Rev. Anthony Alexander taught in the Department of Religion at John Carroll University. He also wrote books such as College Moral Theology, College Sacramental Theology, College Dogmatic Theology, etc.

He wrote in the first chapter, "Protestantism holds that the Bible alone, privately interpreted, is sufficient to point out what all must do and believe to be saved... we say that the Bible is indeed God's inspired word and contains some of His revelation to man... But there are several notable weaknesses in the Protestant position of the surpassing importance of the private interpretation of the Bible as a rule of faith. a. It cannot be proved from the Bible itself ... that private interpretation is the authentic rule of faith... Private interpretation ... was and is impossible for a great many people because they are illiterate... The average layman will find many parts of the Bible very difficult to understand... [Protestants] are forced to conclude that there was a time when Christians cold not be saved because in their day the Bible was not yet completed." (Pg. 8-9)

He states, "The starting point for the fifth proof for the existence of God is the observation that there are about us things which serve a purpose. The cogency of this argument is not weakened because of the fact that the purposefulness of many objects cannot readily be named.

This is awesome! Starts at the beginning, shows the existence of God, Jesus as the Son of God, and that the Church Jesus came to establish is the Church that we call Catholic.The claims of the Catholic Church are worth investigating, and this is THE book to start that investigation.
