A novel approach to Catholic apologetics

Martin Kennedy moved his family from Philadelphia to rural Kentucky. He changed from land of big city cathedral to rural country of mission parish. The constant challenges he encountered from his "bible belt" neighbors inspired him to write this book. From Philly blacktop to Kentucky bluegrass, Kennedy takes us on a wonderful literary ride. His story calms the spirit with the beauty of family life on a farm and moves you to identify with the unlikely hero who learns how to defend his Catholic faith from attacks by fundamentalist believers.

More than a novel

Lukewarm or poorly-catechised Catholics will find new insight into the depth and richness of their Faith. The non-Catholic will find an open window to Catholic beliefs and the biblical reasons behind them. Optional study guide (see below) transforms A Phillly Catholic into a valuable teaching tool for teen religious education classes, RCIA programs and even homeschoolers. Evangelization tools can take many forms. We can thank this Kennedy for creating one that’s anything but threatening. Pass the Word.

A Philadelphia Catholic in King James’s Court

RECOMMENDATIONS


They like it!

"This improbable novel calms the spirit with the beauty of family life on a farm, and somehow-can’t put my finger on it-beguiles you into identifying with the unlikely hero as he learns how to defend his Catholic faith in confrontation with Bible believers. Too bad apologetics isn’t always this enjoyable-or seductive." —Father Owen Kearns, L.C., Publisher, National Catholic Register

"A powerful defense of Catholic beliefs that acknowledges the deep love for Christ and thirst for truth among fundamentalist Christians." —Marcus Grodi, President, The Coming Home Network

"A Philadelphia Catholic in King James’s Court is a welcome contribution to the return of the Catholic novel!" —Mark Brumley, Catholic Dossier and The Catholic Faith magazines

"From stickball played on the Philadelphia blacktop to working the tobacco fields of rural Kentucky, Kennedy takes us on a wonderful ride. He introduces us to the sublime joys found in a slower pace of life and the profound truths found in the Catholic faith. It’s a fun read--enjoy it yourself, then pass it on!" —Matthew Pinto, President, Envoy magazine

"Besides being an intriguing tale, its is an instant course in apologetics…It would be unfair to give the final outcome of this tale. Evil pits all its strength against Michael. Grace inspires and empowers him. Moments of suspense and horror lead up to a climax not devoid of subtle humor. We are left applauding the hero of the piece, wondering and wishing for more."National Catholic Register

"Masterful! This book portrays the mindset of fundamentalist Christians with uncanny accuracy. It’s chock full of insights about how people fall into error-and how to prevent it from happening to someone you love." —Bruce Sullivan, convert and former fundamentalist preacher

"What a terrific story! And what a great way for students to prepare for the challenges of the Faith which will inevitably confront them in college and beyond." —Anna Micko, Catholic school teacher
