Why is That in Tradition? shows you how to deflate standard objections to Catholic doctrines and practices that have been taught for centuries — and how to use those very beliefs and practices to bring people into (or back into) the Catholic Church.
Veteran apologist and best-selling author Patrick Madrid:
• Explains the difference between capital "T" Tradition, which are part of divine revelation, the doctrines delivered to the Church by Christ and the Apostles, and small "t" traditions, which are customs or disciplines that develop within the Church.
• Shows exactly what the Church has always taught about the Bible, Mary, the communion of saints, praying for the dead, calling priests "Father," the veneration of relics, the Real Presence, transubstantiation, confession to a priest, purgatory, the primacy of the Pope, apostolic succession, indulgences, holy water, sacramentals, novenas, and many other teachings and customs often objected to by non-Catholics.
• Clarifies the true meaning of teachings that anti-Catholics often distort to attack the Church.
• Provides accurate answers to the most common objections non-Catholics have about Church teachings.
• Demonstrates how to share the riches of the Catholic Faith more effectively with those who find its practices "unscriptural," or to fallen-away Catholics.
