One of the greatest books ever written in this regard is Newman's "Apologia Pro Vita Sua."

Newman begins by restating his opponents best case against Catholicism ... and his opponent is almost identical theologically to today's evangelicals.

After decimating Catholic belief from the evangelical point of view, he then rebuilds it step-by-step in an intellectual tour de force which takes accounts of all aspects of humanity ... not just the hyper-rational intellectual aspect.

I recommend it to everyone.

I couldn't agree more, "The Faith of our Fathers" by James Cardinal Gibbons is also excellent and somewhat "easier" reading than Newman's "Apologia."
