January 17, 2013 – Dave Armstrong

On January 17th Ken talks with his guest Dave Armstrong, author of more than thirty books, about The Quotable Newman – A Definitive Guide to His Central Thoughts and Ideas and The Catholic Verses (both published by Sophia Institute Press). John Cardinal Newman — the 19th century British Cardinal recently pronounced “Blessed” by Pope Benedict XVI preached thousands of sermons, wrote scores of books, and published countless articles explaining our Catholic faith. Dave Armstrong, himself drawn forth from Protestantism by the power of Cardinal Newman’s words, shares Newman’s wisdom with others.In The Catholic Verses Armstrong shows that a fair-minded reading of these Bible passages supports the Catholic position on key issues that divide Protestants from Catholics.
