Please Consider Supporting This Apostolate

Since December 2001, I have been a full-time writer/apologist, constantly sharing the message of Christianity and the fullness of Catholicism. My (very modest) income consists  of royalties from my books, and contributions (supplemented by additional part-time work, as necessary). I'm married, and have four children, who are home-schooled. We believe in living very simply. I work at home without a staff or rented office (thus, little overhead). I'm asking for your help in order for this endeavor to succeed. 

If you believe that this website and my books offer important educational materials and spiritual edification, perhaps you would consider making a monthly pledge or one-time donation. If you cannot contribute at this time, your prayers and recommendations to others of my work (by word of mouth or Internet links) would be greatly appreciated. I will be able to write and pursue my apostolate in direct proportion to the income I receive for that work.You'll never be sent desperate, emotional appeal letters through e-mail, begging for money (only a simple website update, showing what I have been doing). 

Thanks so much for reading this, and for visiting my website. I hope it has been --by God's grace -- useful in your spiritual journey. May God bless you abundantly as you serve and follow Him.

On behalf of Editor Patrick Madrid and the staff of Envoy Magazine, I am very happy to tell you that Biblical Evidence for Catholicism was chosen as the winner of the "Website of the Year" [1998] category and that you were nominated for the "Best New Evangelist" category in the second annual Envoy Awards for Excellence in Evangelization. The other nominees for the "Website of the Year" were Catholic Online, Catholicity and New Advent. The other "Best New Evangelist" nominees were Curtis Martin, Fr. Daniel Gagnon and Robert Sungenis [Martin won].

. . . we see the importance of recognizing and encouraging those who are truly effective in their efforts to proclaim the Catholic Faith. Nominees are selected and voted upon by the staff and several of our advisors.

Thank you, Dave, for the tremendous good you and the Biblical Evidence for Catholicism website have done and are doing for Christ and His Church. All of us at Envoy Magazine love you and support you in our prayers and the work of our apostolate. Please remember us in your prayers.

(I will assume that you have read this if you write a letter)

erasmus@ic.net

Sorry, but I cannot answer letters. If I tried to do that with the traffic that I get on my website, I wouldn't be able to do anything else, or to produce any new apologetic writings. My website is designed to comprehensively provide answers for theological and apologetic questions. I do, however, read all correspondence, and appreciate positive feedback, notices of new apologetics and theological sites, and substantive criticism. The only sort of letter that I will answer for sure, is a comprehensive, point-by-point (and amiable) critique of one of my papers. Thanks for your understanding; I appreciate each and every visitor to my website.

If you are seeking highly specific apologetic answers or personal, pastoral guidance as to the Catholic faith, don't despair; there are many great apologetic and general Catholic sites, which I have listed on my Catholic Documents & General/Apologetics Websites page (I would particularly recommend Karl Keating's Catholic Answers, where there are several apologists trained to answer inquiries about Catholicism: call 619-387-7200). If you are considering conversion to the Catholic faith, you can receive compassionate, understanding guidance from The Coming Home Network(Marcus Grodi and many volunteers).

The e-mail address on the old, greatly out-of-date home page (which I will not list here!) is obsolete, and has been for some time. The tables on the Main Index Page and Home Page are always identical. Every web page on my site has a link on the bottom to the Main Index Page, which in turn has a link to the Home Page.

To the best of my knowledge, all of my theological writing is "orthodox" and not contrary to the official dogmatic and magisterial teaching of the Catholic Church. In the event of any (unintentional) doctrinal or moral error on my part having been undeniably demonstrated to be contrary to the Sacred Tradition of the Catholic Church, I will gladly and wholeheartedly submit to the authority and wisdom of the Church {Mt 28:18-20; 1 Timothy 3:15}.

Biblical Evidence for Catholicism first went online in March 1997, and is expanded and updated constantly. Please visit often!
