While editing If Protestantism is True with Catholic Answers, I’ve been working on another manuscript for a different kind of apologetics book. And I’m happy to say that I just finished the first draft.
The working title for it, which is almost sure to change, is The Roman Road, a probably too-subtle play off the Protestant witnessing tool called the Romans road, where you lead a person through key verses in the book of Romans to show them that they are sinners who need Jesus.
This book has the ambitious goal of making apologists out of “regular” Catholics. It accomplishes this by showing Catholics how they can share their faith with Protestant friends, make arguments, and connect one topic to another. It’s sort of a how-to book that includes the relevant apologetics content. Interestingly, there’s little overlap between this new book and my first one.
Speaking of If Protestantism is True, my editor and I are about three-quarters done with the main editing work. The new book will truly be a new book, though it will share the basic idea and much of the core content (with significant improvements) with the original. It’s been a purgative process for me, editing through the book yet again, but the result will be much better, since almost every suggestion my editor has made is right on the money.
More news will be forthcoming in the next several months on these projects–thanks for all your support!
