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. Purgatory, find answers to 57 questions about Purgatory. One of the most deeply misunderstood aspects of Catholic teaching, Purgatory is nonetheless in reality a paean to God's merciful solicitousness for erring souls. Since He desires the salvation (which means the perfection) of all, He will not cease to provide these opportunities, even if we have not embraced them all, but only some, upon the point of death. Here, in this booklet, find described the dogmatic, Scriptural, and early Church basis for the doctrine; the justice and mercy of Purgatory; the reason we donate money when priests say Masses for the dead; the spiritual value of suffering for sin; Martin Luther's error about justification; and much more. Arm yourself with the truth to be able to defend Holy Mother Church against heretical and skeptic assaults on the Faith.

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.
