"Why God?: Faith, Reason, and Evidence for God" (Part I of the "Why God? Why Christian? Why Catholic?" parish mission/workshop) Many Christians are simply raised with the assumption of God's existence with little supporting reason and evidence. This talk seeks to highlight the role of faith, enhanced with arguments of reason, and supported by evidence to equip listeners for belief in a doubting and sometimes hostile world.
"Why Christian?: Evidence for the Authenticity of Christianity" (Part II of the "Why God? Why Christian? Why Catholic?" parish mission/workshop) This presentation was born out of necessity from Anthony's work with high school seniors and their questions. Its purpose is to illustrate the uniqueness of Christianity among the other religions of the world. It is especially focused on Christ and the Resurrection with historical and archaeological evidence.
"Why Catholic?: An Introduction to Catholic Apologetics" (Part III of the "Why God? Why Christian? Why Catholic?" parish mission/workshop) This presentation offers a primer on effectively explaining and defending the Catholic faith, especially among other Christians. Highlights include a look at Luther's doctrines of Sola Fide and Sola Scriptura, Apostolic Succession, and the Eucharist.
"Sign of Contradiction: Contraception, Family Planning and Catholicism" This talk draws upon the highlights of Anthony's book of the same title and presents the Church's teaching on "birth control" in light of what experience and data have demonstrated over the last several decades. It offers a fresh, thorough treatment of this unpopular teaching to invite faithful to reconsider this teaching or learn about it for the first time. More available here.
