Sign Up for My Newsletter and Get This Book Free!
My email newsletter keeps friends informed about my book projects. I share work in progress, solicit reader input, offer early-bird pricing on new titles, and sometimes even offer publications for free.
The free newsletter appears every two weeks or so. There's no obligation. You can unsubscribe at any time, and I won't share your email or name with anyone.
As a thank-you for when you subscribe, I offer a digital* copy of No Apology.
In it I write about how to do apologetics and how not to.
I defend the very idea of apologetics against a theologian who thinks apologetics is passé.
I look at how the Faith is promoted through beauty and through suffering.
I take you from my own backyard to such distant times and places as fifth-century Jerusalem and sixteenth-century Japan.

2018 Festival of Books: I Look Forward to Seeing You in San Diego on August 25!
On this site’s blog you’ll find a longer article about the Festival of Books that will be held in San Diego. The main sponsor is the local newspaper, the Union-Tribune, but there are many other sponsors too.
I’ll have a table in Author Alley, and I hope you’ll drop by if you find yourself in the area. There will be lots of exhibitors and exhibits, plus panel discussions and—very important!—much camaraderie.
I’m going this year because I had a great time there last year, as just a regular visitor. Most of the things to do are outdoors, under tents or awnings, but the panels are held in auditoriums.
The Festival of Books will be at Liberty Station, which is the former 361-acre Naval Training Center repurposed to social, commercial, and residential uses. It’s easy to get to, with plenty of free parking.
Liberty Station is almost contiguous to San Diego International Airport. If you know how to reach the one, you know how to reach the other.
For my part, I’ll be offering many of my books at discount, both paperback and ebook versions. Come by, pick up an inexpensive book, and have it autographed. (Well, not the ebooks.)
Try Book 1 in the Debating Catholicism Series (and I Bet You'll Pick Up Books 2-4 Later!)
The Bible Battle is the first book in the four-book series of debates I was in. My opponent in this debate was Peter S. Ruckman, often styled the king of the King James Only movement.
He didn't just argue the Bible-alone position. He argued that KJV-alone position on top of it: a real Christian, he said, would use only the KJV, not some later translation.
The Bible Battle, like the other books in the series, is available for just $3.99 in the digital version. That's the price of a hamburger—but the book is much more filling! The paperback version is only $5.99.
I hope you'll enjoy The Bible Battle so much that you'll want to get the other three books in the series:
(A better deal: all four debate books are gathered into an omnibus volume called Debating Catholicism. It's only $5.99 for the digital version and $14.99 for the paperback.)
Perhaps My Most Controversial Book
Can you read a 310-page book in 90 minutes? Neither can I. No one can, at least not with comprehension. But that's what some reviewers claimed they did when I came out with The New Geocentrists.
My book refutes the notion—popular with some Catholics and Protestants—that the sun, planets, and stars revolve around a stationary Earth. Proponents say this idea is demanded by a literal reading of the Bible. I explain why they're wrong, both biblically and scientifically.
Friends of the chief Catholic geocentrist knew my book was coming out. They were ready. Within two hours of its appearance at Amazon they posted a spate of one-star reviews. Of course, they hadn't seen the book. They just "knew" my position had to be wrong, so they wrote accordingly. But judge for yourself.
