Do you dread conversation at Christmas dinner with your Catholic family? At weddings, funerals, and holidays? Chris Castaldo has wrestled personally with this question and many more. Perhaps you have too. Whether you are a former Roman Catholic or know someone who is, you'll find helpful answers and encouraging support within these pages. Like: how can Evangelicals and Catholics reach such different conclusions from the same Scripture? When I talk about my faith with my Catholic family, why does someone always get upset? How does my Catholic background still influence my views of God and salvation? And how should I talk with my Catholic friends about Jesus? More than providing historical perspective, theological reflection, and practical lessons, Holy Ground is a dynamic exploration of how to emulate both the grace and truth of the Lord Jesus Christ in relation to the Catholic people you love.
Chris Castaldo is Director of the Ministry of Gospel Renewal at Wheaton College, the author of Holy Ground: Walking with Jesus as a Former Catholic, and a primary contributor to Journeys of Faith: Evangelicalism, Eastern Orthodoxy, Catholicism, and Anglicanism. He has written numerous articles for publications such as Christianity Today, Touchstone Journal, and First Things, and is a regular contributor to the Gospel Coalition.
