Q. A. Quizzes to a Street Preacher is a series of pocket-sized booklets perfect for street evangelization and rapid replies to questions about the Catholic Faith. Written by Fr. Leslie Rumble and Fr. Charles Carty, pioneers in modern evangelization methods in the first half of the 20th century, these pamphlets exude the concise and pithy wisdom of two experts in the field of convert-making. Comprising 32 pages each, these booklets are brief, systematic, economically worded, and right to the point. Subjects covered are the Bible, Purgatory, Indulgences, Confession, Marriage, Hell, Birth Prevention, the Eucharist, the True Church, and Virgin and Statue Worship. In Q. A. Indulgence, find answers to 44 questions on indulgences, including what they are and what they are not, how they work, and why the Church has authority to grant them. In addition, you will find information on Scriptural and Patristic support for indulgences, as well as the basis of the practice in the traditions of the early Church and why there have been abuses of indulgences (such as their sale) in the past. Our Lord has been greatly merciful in granting the keys of the kingdom to the Church; she in turn has given dispensations to the faithful to atone for our sins. This booklet will help you to defend this venerable mercy on the part of God and His Holy Church against all detractors.
Leslie Audoen Rumble, known as "Fr. Rumble," was a priest and apologist from New South Wales, Australia. Born in 1892, he grew up in an Anglican family, but he converted to the Catholic Church. In 1924, he was ordained a priest for the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart. He became famous for providing radio answers to questions about Catholicism broadcasted all over Australia and New Zealand. He also founded Radio Replies Press with Fr. Charles Mortimer Carty, an American priest from St. Paul, Minnesota, who had been performing a similar radio-apologetics program, the Catholic Radio Hour, as well as a street-preaching campaign, in the United States. (Fr. Carty was also known as a biographer of Padre Pio.) Fr. Carty spearheaded the American publishing operation, and the two priests became excellent "collaborators in the truth." Their work survives to this day as a testament to their zeal for apologetics and evangelization.
