Debates #3: Karl Keating (Catholic Answers) versus various Protestant ministers


“He that sees another in error and endeavors not to correct it, testifies himself to be in error.” ~ Pope Leo I

Karl Keating is a prominent Catholic Apologist, author, founder and the President of Catholic Answers, a lay apostolate of Catholic apologetics and evangelization.

He received his undergraduate degree in Applied Math at UCSD in 1972 and went on to get a J.D. at the University of San Diego. He worked as an attorney practicing civil law in the early 1980s.

Leaving Mass one Sunday in 1979, he found anti-Catholic tracts on the windshields of the cars in the church parking lot. He wrote his own tract in reply and distributed copies of it at the Fundamentalist church responsible for the tract. That was the start of what has become the country’s largest lay-run apologetics and evangelization organization.

Keating’s book Catholicism and Fundamentalism was based on a 1988 series that ran for 30 weeks in The Wanderer (newspaper). It is a perennial bestseller for its publisher, Ignatius Press.
