Course description: Some Protestants attack the Faith of Catholics because they believe the Church is a false system leading people away from Christ. This class is a training session to help teens learn, explain, defend, and share their Catholic Faith in a loving and effective way. The students will learn what do say and most of all how to say it. It will include, if the students are willing, mock-dialogues and other exercises so that they can practice putting the lesson plans into action. Students will learn how to engage in dialogues on: Salvation / Eternal Security, Sola Scripture [the Bible Alone], The Papacy, The Eucharist / The Sacrifice of the Mass, and Marian doctrines
Homework: No written homework. Reading assignments will be required for preparing for class.
Course materials: Will be provided free by instructor.
Instructor biography: Gary Michuta is the author of Why Catholic Bibles Are Bigger: Did the Catholic Church Add Books to the Bible? (Grotto Press, 2007). Gary’s latest book is How to Wolf-Proof Your Kids: A Practical Guide to Keeping Your Kids Catholic which is scheduled for release soon from Grotto Press. This unique book gives Catholic parents and educators valuable insights into the deceptive tactics used by anti-Catholics and concrete suggestions on how to combat these methods. Mr. Michuta was also the co-host of the radio show Hands on Apologetics Live. He is also a frequent guest on various Catholic radio shows such as Catholic Answers Live (EWTN), Searching the Word (Relevant Radio), and the Son Rise Morning Show (EWTN). He gave his “inversion story” on The Journey Home (EWTN) and he also worked as an uncredited consultant for Steve Ray’s Footsteps of God video series (Ignatius Press). Since 2003, Mr. Michuta has developed apologetic material for the Eastern Church Re-Evangelization Commission (E.C.R.C) to aid the Chaldean Catholic Dioceses. Gary currently offers classes on Apologetics to Catholic parishes around the country.
