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. Virgin and Statue Worship, find answers to 101 questions about how Catholics venerate Our Lady and saints, especially through means of sacred images. Questions about image veneration and Mary and the saints continue to arise against Catholics in places where there is a large Protestant population. And yet, these questions were answered with great precision over a millennium ago at ecumenical councils, and even the majority of non-Catholic Christians pray to Mary and the saints! Find out in this information-packed booklet why the Catholic Church venerates the saints, and above all Our Lady—though never in the way that we worship God!—and why we use images to do so.

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.
