Product Description

When the recently released Catechism of the Catholic Church broke onto the NY times bestseller list, its success confirmed the overwhelming interest of Catholics and Protestants in understanding modern Catholicism. Has the recent openness among denominations affected Catholic teaching? In the new spirit of cooperation, is there any reason why the two traditions should remain divided? This examination seeks to answer this. Please note: This book is written as a critique from a Protestant perspective.

Publisher's Description

When Catechism of the Catholic Church broke onto the N.Y. Times bestseller list, its astonishing success confirmed the overwhelming interest of Catholics and Protestants in understanding modern Catholicism. Has the recent openness among denominations affected Catholic teachings? In the new spirit of cooperation, is there any reason why Catholics and Protestants should remain divided?

This powerful and insightful examination of the Catholic Church provides:

  • a side-by-side comparison of Scripture with the first new worldwide Catholic catechism in 400 years
  • a summary of how modern Catholicism views grace, works, and heaven
  • 24 ways the Catholic plan of salvation still stands in contrast to biblical truth
  • a balanced overview of how the authority structure of the Roman Catholic Church compares with that of the New Testament church
  • an explanation of how participation in the Mass and other sacraments is inconsistent with faith in Christ as Savior

Clear, accurate, significant information to know and share--The Gospel According to Rome

    this book tells the truth. before i really started questioning the church i honestly thought that everything the RCC believed and taught was ok by God's standards. but at work one day some of my associates and i got into a conversation about the bible and church doctrines. i have always had a great love for Jesus and while we were talking about the RCC and man's docrines i realized then that i dont need to go to Mary or to a priest in order for them to intercede for me as far as Mary taking my prayers to Jesus or for a priest to offer a sacrifice to the Father for my sins. then i really started studying and researching what the church was teaching, and i said to myself that this is enough, no more RCC. there is no need to pray to Mary nor to any other human, let alone to think that a mere man a priest can offer a sacrifice for my sins. alot of catholics really dont see this going on in the church bcuz they are thinking the way i once thought - which is - it's ok by God's standards. the only way they will really see the lies is for them to read the bible and compare that to the cathecism, or just ask a priest or a nun why they believe in their doctrines when their doctrines are not in the bible. or is it just human pride that got the RCC where it is today?

    I'm a life long (58 years) Catholic believer in Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This book is not factual about Catholic Church beliefs. We are taught that we do not save ourselves by works. We are taught that we are saved by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We have to be washed in the blood of Christ. The only way to heaven is having faith in The Lord. After receiving the Grace of Our Lord we are then to have good works, which sripture says we are made for. See Ephesians Chapter 2 Verses 8 thru 10. What this author does is set up a straw man and blows it down with scripture. First he should get the facts right on each item. Its all through this book and Dave Hunts book; they don't present to the readers the actual teaching of the Catholic Church. Such as; Mary worship. Shes not God, so we are not allowed to worship her. She would be the first to tell us to worship only God. I could go on with all the subjects brought up, but you get the point. The Catholic Church has Jesus at the center of its life. Remember people make up the Church; so its always about faith in him. See you in heaven.

    I have read a few books about the CatholicChurch and this book gives you a well insight of what the official teaching of the Catholic Church. It compares what stands in the Catholic books and what stands in the Bible.

    Aye! It is a good work of fiction, but it claims to be a work of fact!A better book would be "Upon this Rock" by Stephen Ray. As an Evangelical Protestant, he realized that the real issue dividing Catholics and Protestants was authority. Everything else was secondary to the issue of authority. Protestants accept the authority of the Bible alone, whereas Catholics understand the authority to be residing in the Magisterium, the Scriptures, and the Sacred Tradition. Ray goes through the Scriptures and writings from the first five centuries of the early Church to demonstrate the true nature of the Church Christ founded!

    The Gospel According to Rome is a great book to help a non-Roman Catholic understand what family and friends have embraced. It is especially good to show the pitfalls and then show what the Bible really says (or does not say)about a subject . It is easy to read.
