Jesus taught us about it, and for centuries the Church has faithfully defined and defended it. Protestants deny it even exists, while many Catholics fundamentally misunderstand it. It is Purgatory: that place of purifying penance where souls saved by Christ are made perfect and acceptable to spend life eternal in heaven.

In The Biblical Basis For Purgatory, author and apologist John Salza (Why Catholics Cannot Be Masons) offers the definitive scriptural explanation of this distinctively Catholic doctrine. Building on the teachings of Christ and St. Paul, he shows how the existence of a place of temporal punishment after death is not only a logical extension of what we know about the reality of sin and God's justice, but also a supreme expression of God's love and mercy.

Although Purgatory is a place of mercy, its pains are real, and they are severe. This book does more than defend and explain Purgatory; it provides a solid plan, drawn from the Church's perennial wisdom, for conquering our sins by God's grace while still on earth.

    Purgatory explained with Scripture and logic

    Posted by Maddie on May 24th 2023

    There is a lot to understand and ponder about purgatory. This book was a great read - captivating! It takes you through the scripture. It isn;t here say or strange ghost stories, It's grounded in scripture and the logic of Catholic teaching. Not a long book but jam packed with good information that;s easily digestible.

    Outstanding source for any use

    Great collections of most useful citations and commentaries supporting the scriptural and theological basis for this definite entity, so long taught in traditional catechisms, but sadly neglected by modern thinking.
