Roman Catholics may grow disenchanted with their church and end up born-again evangelicals. That's what happened to Castaldo and countless others he interviewed. What are the five most common reasons for such a decision? How can one "answer to" both Catholic friends and family and the God who transcends all earthly divisions? 224 pages, softcover. Zondervan.

Publisher's Description

“This is the best book I have read that chronicles such pilgrimages. And it is full of godly commonsense.” —D. A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School “A refreshing change…[Castaldo] shows respect for the tradition from which he departed” —Francis J. Beckwith, Professor of Philosophy and Church-State Studies, Baylor University. Author of Return to Rome: Confessions of an Evangelical Catholic. “Very important [and] very helpful!” —J.I. Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College 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.

    This is a very informative book about Catholic families and the Catholic religion. You will put the book down understanding what being a Catholic is all about.

    The idea behind this book is for Evangelicals to understand the Catholic religion so they can better witness to them about their views of what being a Christian is all about.

    Whether you want to witness to a person in the Catholic church or just better understand what Catholics believe, this book will help. The stories that are used for examples are easily understood. The author's personal examples are well placed and written. The end of the book has a section filled with discussion questions for each chapter.

    I was given this book by christianreviewofbooks.com to review.

    It was good to read about the journey of someone who came out of Rome and about the reasons why many are becoming disenchanted with the RCC. Castaldo gave some good insights into what it like to live under the authority of the Magisterium and how we Evangelicals can help others come out from under its shadow in a redemptive manner. I agree that one of the key issues is Rome's claim to be the only infallible authority to interpret the Scriptures, a claim which is contrary to the biblical truth of sola Scriptura. However, I think the more critical issue is the heart of the gospel, justification. The imputation of our sin to Christ and the imputation of Christ's righteousness to us (2 Cor. 5:21), the "blessed exchange," is denied by the RCC and,consequently, Roman Catholic teaching negates the Word of God.
