The Roman Catholic Papacy is the longest-living institution in the civilized world - and at times one of the most controversial due to the basic doctrines of:
* Papal Authority
* Papal Infallibility
* Apostolic Succession
Drawing upon Old and New Testamnet Scripture, Tradition, and the words of the early Church Fathers, author, lawyer, and noted Catholic apologist John Salza presents a comprehensive and compelling story of the papacy from a biblical perspective. Arguments against the papacy are weighed and refuted in a charitable but convincing manner, making this a valuable resource for everyone intrigued or confused by the 2000-year-old papal office - regardless of your faith background. Whether you are defending, questioning, or exploring the Catholic Faith, this book provides the most concise and clear examination of the Catholic Churchs supreme teaching office as instituted by Christ.
John Salza was born on November 30, 1967, and is an apologist, author, and speaker. He became an attorney after being raised Catholic, but joined the Freemasons in 1996 for several years before giving up his membership. He is the author of Why Catholics Cannot Be Masons, The Mystery of Predestination, Masonry Unmasked, and The Biblical Basis for Purgatory. He has also appeared on Ave Maria radio and hosts the radio program Relevant Answers.
John Salza is held as a leading defender of the Catholic faith, and is devoted to apologetics. He also holds a Magnum Cum Laude from the University of Wisconsin and is the creator of ScriptureCatholic.com.
