This item received 5 stars overall. Concise answers to complex objections

I picked up this book because I expected it to contain a concise defense of Catholicism.  What I discovered is that this is not a book to use to discuss Catholic beliefs with Christians.  As the title suggests, it is a handbook of Christian apologetics.  Once I realized the purpose of the book I realized how valuable a resource it is.

Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli have laid out a logical plan for Christian belief and they have done so in an amazingly organized way.  Students of logic (and Aquinas) will appreciate the organizational beauty and brevity of the questions and answers in this work.  Each chapter begins with a title, short introduction and definition of terms.  Following is an explanation of the doctrine.  This part is organized by argument using numbers and letters to distinguish different points.  

My favorite part of the chapter is the objections section (with answers) after the explanations Full Review...
