HANDBOOK OF CHRISTIAN APOLOGETICS REFUTED

Being a refutation of the disgraceful HANDBOOK OF CHRISTIAN APOLOGETICS, Peter Kreeft & Ronald Tacelli, Monarch, East Sussex, 1994. It gaslights to lend credibility to the Christian faith.  This book was written by two Roman Catholics but was written in such a way that it could be used to defend the beliefs that Catholics and Protestant and Orthodox hold in common. It was written as a handbook the Churches could use to close up anybody who protested against the deceptions of Christianity.

Peter Kreeft is professor of philosophy at Boston College and writes regularly to defend Roman Catholicism in Catholic journals. He was interviewed by Lee Strobel and in doing so made a contribution to Strobel’s The Case for Faith. Ronald Tacelli SJ, is a Jesuit Roman Catholic priest and is associate professor of philosophy at Boston College. The significance of the book is both in its wide distribution and popularity and also in its being the best introduction into the subject of Christian apologetics ever attempted. However the book is easily refuted and is full of tricks and is scandalous for rehashing arguments for the religion that have been buried years ago. In this, it reflects the desperation of those who attempt to make the faith believable today. There is little integrity in people who use arguments that they know have been invalidated and refuted. There should be no such thing as Catholic philosophy and theology. They only exist because of the ignorance and submissiveness of many Catholics who are being taken advantage of.
