You don't have to remain silent anymore when Protestants and other non-Catholics tell you (or your kids) that Catholic teachings go against the Bible! When your Evangelical Protestant brother-in-law Larry visits, or Scripture-quoting Fundamentalists knock on your door, reach for Chantal Epie's The Scriptural Roots of Catholic Teaching, the comprehensive and user-friendly guide that shows you where to find all the Church's major teachings in Scripture especially the ones that non-Catholics most often contradict.
Epie reveals the Scriptural foundations of all the most important and most often controverted teachings of the Church: the source of Divine Revelation, the founding of the Church by Christ Himself, His establishment of the Sacraments as means of grace, and the importance of devotion to Mary and the saints.
The Scriptural Roots of Catholic Teaching goes far beyond most Scripture guides and apologetics books for Catholics. Instead of simply listing the pertinent Scriptures for each doctrine, Epie shows you how to use them! She illuminates each doctrine with a clear, easy-to-follow narrative that shows how the Scriptures support and form the foundation for the Church's teachings. In doing so, she skillfully weaves together passages from the Gospels, the Epistles of St. Paul, and the Old Testament illustrating the wonderful unity of Scripture, as well as God's loving Providence in planning from the beginning of time for the Church's flowering.
That makes this book not only a valuable apologetics tool for your conversations with non-Catholics it's also an enlightening refresher course in Scripture and the teachings of the Church. Use it with your kids to show them that their Catholic Faith is on firm Scriptural ground, or just read it yourself to renew your gratitude for the unity and splendor of Divine Revelation!

Chantal Epie was born in Mali, grew up in Senegal, and now lives in Nigeria. In that country she encountered Christians from a wide variety of denominations. All claimed to base their teachings on the Bible, but they disagreed on fundamental doctrines. To help these Christians see the truth of the Catholic Faith, Epie researched and wrote this book on the harmony between Catholic teachings and the Bible.Review:
A magnificently comprehensive guide to the book that the Catholic Church collected, protected, and interpreted throughout the centuries: the Bible. -- Patrick Madrid, author, Surprised by Truth 2
Shows clearly how the Scripture confirms and defends all those Catholic teachings that ‘Bible only’ Christians misunderstand. -- Paul Thigpen, author, The Rapture Trap
Shows that the Bible clearly and convincingly teaches Catholic doctrines — which makes sense, since Christ established the Catholic Church. --Karl Keating, author, Catholicism and Fundamentalism
