Apologetics is the branch of theology which provides explanations for the doctrines of the Catholic faith. Whether it's responding to the objections of a Fundamentalist Christian, answering the questions of an atheist, or clearing up the misunderstandings of a fallen-away Catholic, apologetics can help you explain what we believe and why we believe it.


Below you will find a few websites, books and magazines that will help you grow in your knowledge and ability to explain and defend the truth of what the Catholic Church teaches.
