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.

Noelle Mering “Theology of Home” - Lisa Hendey & Friends #81

December 24, 2019
On this week's show, we appreciate the comfort and beauty of "home" with Noelle Mering. Noelle is the coauthor of the book Theology of Home: Finding the Eternal in the Everyday and an editor of the online magazine theologyofhome.com. She also writes frequent on the topics of culture, politics, and religion and has published in National Review, The Federalist, and National Catholic Register. Noelle and her husband live in Southern California with their six children. 
 
 
Why do Americans love their homes, spending hundreds of billions of dollars annually on home improvement, renovations, and decor, but meanwhile, the notion of a homemaker is still held in contempt? The theology of home responds to this tension by examining the idea that home is meant to be a foreshadowing of heaven and a preparation for the eternal home for which we all, wittingly or not, long. In seeking to understand the ‚Äėwhy‚Äô behind home we can reorient ourselves to dive more deeply in our relationships ‚ÄĒ first with God, then our spouses and children, and extending into our communities and friendships.¬†

About The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry:

Dallas Willard once called hurry ‚Äúthe great enemy of spiritual life in our day.‚ÄĚ ¬†Followers of Jesus are not immune to culture‚Äôs pain. Many of us live with a low-grade fatigue and chronic anxiety that rarely, if ever, goes away. We careen through our days at breakneck speed and wonder where God is in the fray. The reality is, most of us are just too busy to live an emotionally healthy and spirituality vibrant life. Hurry is incompatible with the way of Jesus. The love, joy, and peace that form the nucleus of Jesus‚Äô kingdom are all impossible in a life of speed. We must, as Willard went on to say, ‚ÄúRuthlessly eliminate hurry.‚ÄĚ

About The Bible Is A Catholic Book:

In The Bible Is a Catholic Book, Jimmy shows how the Bible cannot exist apart from the Church. In its origins and its formulation, in the truths it contains, in its careful preservation over the centuries and in the prayerful study and elucidation of its mysteries, Scripture is inseparable from Catholicism. This is fitting since both come from God for our salvation. For Catholics who sometimes get intimidated by the Bible (especially scriptural challenges from Protestants), The Bible Is a Catholic Book will help them better understand and take pride in this gift that God gave the world through the Church. And the clarity and charity that Jimmy uses as explains how the early Church gave us the Bible will make it accessible to non-Catholic Christians as well.
