    This book isn't perfect but it is a book that I would recommend for the theologically minded person who wants to learn more about the commonalities and differences between the two churches. In some cases, I would have liked the author to go more into depth in some areas but considering the thickness of the book you are certainly getting your money's worth. At the right price (under $40) it is worth it. I wouldn't spend more than that for this book.

    Disappointing, but generally fair, charitable, and mostly accurate presentation of the differences between Catholic and evangelicals. Most Protestants writing about Catholicism (e.g. James White) adopt a condescending tone towards Catholics, and attempt to set Catholics straight about what we really believe. This book, however, allows Catholics to define for ourselves (if sometimes inaccurately) what Catholicism is all about, and it does cite the original source documents, unusual for this kind of book, which usually relies on works by former "Catholics", or non Catholics. Unfortunately, they misinterpret and distort some of the teachings of the early Fathers of the Church, plus there are a few minor factual errors in the text. Much is omitted, for example when discussing justification, they leave out any discussion of the Letter of James--the only scriptural reference to "faith alone". Also in some cases at least they commit some serious logical errors and bad arguments. Overall, I would much pleased if evangelicals interested in Catholicism would turn to this book instead of, say, the intellectually dishonest works of Loraine Bottener.If you want a more reasonably priced and more accurate book, try "Catholicism and Fundamentalism" by Karl Keating. Or Scott Hahn, an ordained Presbyterian Minister, writes of his search for the truth through scripture in "Rome Sweet Home". This is an easy reading, but fact filled account of his and his wife's personal journeys. Or for very light reading try "Catholic Answers to Fundamentalist's Questions." (Great for kids going away to college.)
