Robert not only continues to answer the usual questions from Protestant Christians but for the first time responds to the rising challenges of Islam and atheism.
With over 1,500 references to Scripture, the Church Fathers, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Defend the Faith! is ideal for anyone seeking a solid biblical and historic defense of Catholicism.
“Defend the Faith LIVE” is a monthly interview between Matthew-Hermann Tague and Dr. Robert Haddad!
This interview will take the form of a tutorial, where Dr. Robert Haddad will instruct Matthew-Hermann Tague in the art of Catholic Apologetics, and you too are invited to become a student!
The LIVE participants will have the opportunity to ask questions after each recording!
This will be a unique experience with one of the world’s best Catholic Apologists and an absolute must for anyone who desires to “Defend the Faith!”

“Defend the Faith! is a prime example of some of the exciting things happening in Catholic apologetics in Australia. There are few introductory books that cover so many topics so thoroughly and persuasively, based strongly on Scripture, along with Church Fathers and formal Church documents. It is a must for those who wish to lay a solid foundation for defending their Catholic Faith. I could not recommend a better book to those beginning their adventure in apologetics.”
– Fr Peter Joseph STD, from the Foreword.
“Dr. Robert Haddad has put together a very useful handbook for studying and teaching the Catholic Faith. Solidly grounded in biblical, patristic, and magisterial sources, this thorough compendium of Catholic Apologetics and Doctrine will enable readers of all ages to understand and defend their faith with clarity, confidence, gentleness, and reverence (1 Peter 3:15). Clearly written and well organized, this book will prove to be an invaluable resource for clergy and laity alike, for many years to come. Highly recommended!”
