Pinto and Kathy Andes have produced a tool that will be
used over and over in families, homeschools and parishes.
His new Friendly Defenders Flash Cards combine sound Church
doctrine with a cleverly devised way to communicate the
key tenets of the Catholic faith. Combining word and picture
has proven to be an effective way to communicate and retain
the faith. Our family enthusiastically uses them. I highly
Life on the Rock
Defenders are a great help in the formation of our children.
They are easy to use, speak to the point, teach the doctrine
of the faith, and move the heart. These cards will help
our children know the questions that need to be answered,
provide the answers themselves, and the Scriptural basis
for those answers. What a great service to the Church and
to the souls of our children.

Pinto and Kathy Andes know how to reach young people with
a strong message of faith. Matthew did it with his first
book, and with Kathy hes following up with a blockbuster
product in the new Friendly Defenders Catholic Flash Cards.
They know the spiritual needs of Catholic youth, and they
fill that need. I think Friendly Defenders cards are going
to become a classic a tool used in Catholic youth
education for many years to come. I will be purchasing them
for my six-year-old son.

Defenders Catholic Flash Cards, Matthew Pinto and
Kathy Andes have created another hit with youth, parents
and educators alike. As with Matthew's best-selling book,
Did Adam & Eve Have Belly Buttons?, these flash cards
play a helpful role in educating young people in the faith,
while stimulating dialogue with friends, teachers and family
members. As a teacher myself, I recommend Matt and Kathy's
Friendly Defenders Catholic Flash Cards for
use in parishes, Catholic schools and family settings. If
you are searching for a gift for Holy Communion, Confirmation,
birthday or Christmas, this is it.

people are looking for truth, and Matthew Pinto and Kathy
Andes have a real flair for reaching them in a way that
few can today. The new Friendly Defenders cards are definitely
going to play a role in the re-evangelization of our Catholic
youth. In a fun and friendly way, the cards offer a clear
and concise presentation of the profound truths of our faith.
I strongly recommend these cards to youth, teachers, and
spent most of my life in Catholic schools and in apologetics,
I am delighted to see Friendly Defenders Catholic Flash
Cards make their debut. Far more than flash cards, really
an interactive learning system is what we have here, presenting
Catholic theology accurately and in a manner which places
the latest technology at the service of the Gospel. This
program is ideal for use in Catholic high schools, RCIA
classes, and even for evening entertainment at home.

a handy little way to help your kids learn the Faith when
they just thought they were having fun!
Making Sense(s) Out of Scripture
Friendly Defenders Cards are excellent. Ages 8 to 108 is
absolutely correct. These attractive cards are a great way
for Catholics of all ages to learn the Catholic Faith and
explain it with clarity, common sense, and with Scriptural
support. I look forward to using these in my own catechetical
and apologetics work.

addition to any Catholic parent or educators bookshelf.
A great tool in the New Evangelization, these cards will
equip the youthful evangelizer to actively defend their
faith against the most common arguments and questions.
Catholic Writer and Parent
I just received
your Friendly Defender Cards and they are terrific! I just
took over our church library and plan to hold weekly contests
using your cards. I will ask each child who checks out a
book one of the questions and he would have to answer with
what is on back of the card. He would get points for answering
correctly. I would pass the questions out to the children
the week before. I'm going to memorize these along with
the kids. They really help quite a bit. My husband is getting
his Masters in Theology, he reads a lot of religious books
and he goes on and on about these cards. He's memorizing
them himself. Blessings!!! Thanks for a great product.
