Scripture Wars: How Justin Martyr Rescued the Old Testament for Christians


In stock

About a century after Jesus died, a battle began for the Old Testament. Large numbers of faithful Christians fought about its contents and even about its right to be called a Christian book! On one side, many Jewish converts charged Paul and most of the other Apostles with a Great Apostasy – a pulling away from the deep roots of their Jewish tradition. This, they argued, endangered the souls of believers everywhere. Scripture Wars is an inspiring, true-life testimony to our Father’s providence, a tale that has the power to strengthen the faith of Catholics even today, eighteen centuries later.
