By What Authority?: An Evangelical Discovers Catholic Tradition


In this newly updated, expanded version of his popular work of apologetics, we take a lively and entertaining look at Yr Obdt. Svt’s. conversion to Catholicism from Evangelicalism and his discovery of Christian tradition. As an Evangelical, I accepted the principle of “sola scriptura” (Scripture alone) as the basis of faith. Now as a Catholic convert, I explain how and why Sacred Tradition occupies a central role in Divine Revelation.

Tracing my own journey of intellectual and spiritual awakening, I begin by looking for a rejoinder to those modern-day false prophets who would claim that Scripture itself is not to be trusted, and end with the conviction that tradition, as explained by the Catholic Church, is the only sure guarantee of the truth of the revelation of Jesus Christ.
