Synopsis: "The great need today is to love our enemies into the saving power of Jesus Christ. How can we do that unless we know who they are? Many thanks to Al Kresta for showing us the field of our love with Dangers to the Faith." -- Bishop Earl Boyea , Diocese of Lansing, Michigan
"Al Kresta is like a powerful satellite for Catholics in this country. He picks up the signals of cultural trends and he beams us the message we need to take home." -- Scott Hahn , Professor of Biblical Theology at Franciscan University of Steubenville
"In this primer on the intellectual potholes in our increasingly bizarre culture, Al Kresta helpfully scouts some of the roughest terrain on which the New Evangelization must contend for the soul of the West. Fasten your seat belt for a bumpy -- but essential -- ride through the wastelands." -- George Weigel, author of Evangelical Catholicism: Deep Reform in the 21st-Century Church
"Al Kresta has saved you about 10,000 hours of study and research with this book. Read it." -- Matthew Kelly, founder of DynamicCatholic.com
"Dangers to Faith is for our century what Chesterton's Heretics and Belloc's Great Heresies was for the last century. It is a damning indictment and demonstrative demolition of the major errors of our age." -- Joseph Pearce, literary biographer, writer in residence Thomas More College
"Al possesses a unique array of talents: intelligent, articulate, witty and incredibly aware of those issues most pertinent to today s Catholics. If Al takes the time to write it, it is worth reading." -- Tom Monaghan, founder of Domino's Pizza and founder of Ave Maria University
"Al Kresta is one of the modern Church's most articulate, thoughtful and authentic minds. His book, Dangers to the Faith, is a superb analysis of the challenges not only to contemporary Catholicism but the whole of global civilization." -- Matthew Bunson, author Pope Francis, general editor of the Catholic Almanac
"Al Kresta's new book offers a tour through today's pretenders to spiritual superiority over Jesus Christ by a warrior who takes our age as a wonderful time to be alive." -- Michael Novak, Scholar in Religion, Philosophy, and Public Policy at the American Enterprise Institute
"Al Kresta is as fearless as he is comprehensive, covering everything from Islam to New Age, from reincarnation to relativism to consumerism. Through it all, Al Kresta remains ... well, orthodox." -- Paul Kengor, Ph.D., professor of political science, Grove City College
"There is no lay person better qualified to address the threats to our Church than Al Kresta, who five days a week, two hours a day for many years has explained, proclaimed, and defended the Catholic faith on his Ave Maria radio broadcast. Kresta, in short, has become our nation's preeminent Catholic apologist." -- Deal W. Hudson, founder of Catholic Advocate, former publisher Crisis Magazine
"Dangers to the Faith is a serious, substantive, significant work of cultural apologetics. Al Kresta deserves much credit for providing such a long overdue taxonomy of toxicity a guide to what ails the body politic." -- Patrick Madrid, host of the Right Here, Right Now radio show
"Kresta communicates in an accessible, enjoyable style that edifies any truth-seeking reader. The book has already informed my teaching because it meets people where they are and leads them to the fullness of faith in Christ." -- John Love, S.T.D., Assistant Professor of Theology at Mt. St. Mary's Seminary
From the Inside Flap: A storm has been brewing in society and its treatment, views, and activities toward the Catholic Faith.
Some are subtle, others are more brazen -- New Age thought, questionable spirituality, "creedless" Christianity, relativism, scientific skepticism, the triumph of technology, and even the self-styled spirituality of Oprah Winfrey.
All these masquerade as "truth," making it tough for the average Catholic to know how to resist, let alone respond.
No one is more qualified to pull back the curtain on the challenges the Catholic Church faces today than Al Kresta, popular Catholic author, speaker, and radio show host. A revert to Catholicism, Kresta is well known for his rigorous examination of topics in art, religion, academia, and business.
Dangers to the Faith: Recognizing Catholicism's 21st Century Opponents is the perfect springboard for discussing the new world in which the Catholic Church exists today. Learn how to better carry out the missionary mandate of the Church. The question isn't whether you will be a witness to Christ, but whether you will be a "faithful" witness.
