Anyone interested in sharing the gospel with Catholic
friends or understanding where members of that denomination stand on important
points of theology will appreciate this thorough yet easy-to-use reference.

divide Protestants and Catholics, including1/4
- purgatory and indulgences
- the reverence of Mary, mother of Jesus
- papal infallibility
- Catholic traditions

biblical responses, and offers questions to help Catholics examine their
church's readings. Pastors, teachers, and lay leaders will find this insightful
guide a must-have tool for sharing the good news of salvation by faith alone
with Catholic friends and family members.

It is intellectually dishonest and largely misrepresents current Roman Catholic thought, nor does it embrace accepted biblical scholarship which is shared by both mainline Protestants and Catholic exegetes.
PaulCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: male1 Stars Out Of 5Do your own homeworkOctober 22, 2013PaulCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1I read this book back when I was "saved" and leaving my Catholic Faith to become an evangelical. I was in the Southern Baptist Church for over 4 years, went on missions, tithed, served faithfully, and when I moved towns I was forced to go through the common protestant practice of "church shopping." After attending a slough of churches for various times I began wrestling with the issue of authority, and I saw the great error in the protestant church: lack of authority? The root of many of the logical absurdities, and perpetual schisms that protestantism often breeds come from its origin to "protest" or rebel. The problem with this book is that it perpetuates convenient half truths and outright miscaracterizations of the Catholic faith, rendering it intellectually dishonest at best, and malicious at worst. Don't be lazy. Research the Catholic faith, the origins of the Church, the origins of the Bible, the early church fathers and their writings. You will be surprised at what you find.

I was an Evangelical Christian committed to the ideals spelled out by Rhodes here. In fact, I used it to "evangelize" Catholics and share the gospel with them. As I began to research the history of the faith, and the Church in particular, and the relation of Sacred Scripture to the People of God, my thinking began to change. Rhodes book became for me my last lifeline. I tried desperately to cling to my Evangelicalism, as slowly but surely each and every page of this book melted away in the face of the Ancient faith professed long before Luther and Calvin. I would invite you all to look over the wall of the Reformation, and past 1517. The Church predates the Reformation by 1500 years. Is there anyone bearing witness so-called Protestant ideals before 1517? It almost seems as though Rhodes would have Christ be the foolish builder in His own parable...
