Karlo Broussard “Meeting Challenges of Faith” – Lisa Hendey & Friends #89

On this week’s show, we talk about learning our faith so we can share it with others in a conversation with Karlo Broussard, author of the new book Meeting the Protestant Challenge: How to Answer 50 Biblical Objections to Catholic Beliefs.


About Karlo Broussard:


Karlo Broussard, a native of Southern Louisiana, left a promising musical career to devote himself full-time to the work of Catholic apologetics. With undergraduate and graduate degrees in Theology, as well as a Masters in Philosophy, Karlo is a full-time staff apologist for Catholic Answers and travels the country giving talks on apologetics, the Bible, theology, and philosophy.

About Meeting the Protestant Challenge:


Every Catholic has heard the challenge: “How can you believe that? Don’t you know the Bible says…” It’s a challenge we have to meet. If we can’t reconcile apparent contradictions between Scripture and Catholic teaching, how can our own faith survive? And if we can’t help our Protestant brothers and sisters overcome their preconceptions about “unbiblical” Catholic doctrines and practices, how will they ever come to embrace the fullness of the Faith? In Meeting the Protestant Challenge, Karlo Broussard gives you the knowledge and tools you need to answer fifty of the most common Bible-based objections to Catholicism.
