…and need your help!
I have written the first draft of an apologetics books focusing on ecumenical issues that divide Protestants and Catholics.
The working title is 50 Roads to Rome: Arguments for the Catholic Church from Faith and Reason.
Here is the trailer for the book:
In it I present fifty different arguments supporting the Catholic Church’s claim to be the Church that Christ established, specifically targeted toward Protestantism (versus, say, Eastern Orthodoxy). Each argument is easily understandable for lay Catholics and Protestants alike, drawing on history and those Christian beliefs that we share to demonstrate that the Catholic Faith is both the most reasonable and the most faith-full.
Through the help of a friend (who is both a better writer than I and more knowledgeable about what it takes to actually publish a book), I learned that gone are the days that a publisher markets your book and sells it for you; now, you have to work hard to sell your book before and after your publisher sends it to the printers.
And that’s where you come in! I need your help to get the word out and begin to build a ground-swell of interest in 50 Roads to Rome. Over the next weeks and months I will unveil more details about it and also solicit your feedback for its content. I really want to both strengthen fellow Catholics in their faith and to help our Protestant brothers and sisters come to discover the fullness of the truth in the Catholic Faith.
For this post, I would love to hear your ideas about:
1. What you would like to see in such a book (specific topics, format, etc.)?
2. Any thoughts you have on how to build interest in it (other than the blog)?
Please say a prayer that God’s will be done with it. And thank you for your kindness and support! In the immediate time-frame, you can become a fan of the book on facebook to follow its developments.
