Is the theological rift between evangelicals and Catholics closing?

Publisher's Description

More than at any time in the past, Roman Catholics & evangelicals are working together.They are standing shoulder to shoulder against social evils. They are joining across denominational boundaries in renewal movements. And many evangelicals are finding the history, tradition, and grandeur of the Roman Catholic Church appealing. This newfound rapport has caused many evangelical leaders and laypeople to question the age-old disagreements that have divided Protestants and Catholics: Aren't we all saying the same thing in different language?The Roman Catholic Controversy is an absorbing look at current views of tradition and Scripture, the Papacy, the Mass, Purgatory, indulgences, and Marian doctrine. James White affirms that evangelicals and Catholics share common ground on some points. Yet there are crucial differences that remain regarding the Christian life--and the heart of the Gospel itself--that cannot be ignored.

    James White lays out both sides of the issue with clarity and objectivity. No matter which side of the debate you are on White presents important evidence and reasoning to allow a person to decide which is true.

    One of the strengths of the book is the numerous quotes of primary sources and countless endnotes with additional information. There is ample information provided to allow for one to look up and read additional primary sources if desired. It is easy to read and understand and yet White expertly addresses every major Catholic objection to the Protestant view. This is an excellent work.

    Great Defense of the Reformation

    As a Reformed Protestant who grew up in a Roman Catholic household, I am grateful for the many good things that my Roman Catholic background gave, such as a good sense of morality and a rudimentary knowledge of the Bible. However, I have since come to know the truth of the Gospel and my desire for other Roman Catholics is the same.

    In witnessing to Roman Catholics, however, we need to know what exactly are those issues divide us, and why they matter. While it is uncommon, there are some Roman Catholics out there who understand the issues well enough to pose a challenge when witnessing to them. Some Evangelicals have even been persuaded into joining Rome. The same might have happened to me had it not been for Dr. James R. White and Alpha and Omega Ministries. He has had dozens of exchanges with Roman Catholic clergy and apologists. This book, The Roman Catholic Controversy, is the fruit of his extensive ministry in defending the Biblical Gospel from Romes claims. It makes the issues clear and helps to focus in on what exactly those important differences are and how to biblically defend the central doctrines of the Reformation, such as Sola Scriptura and Sola Fide.

    I highly recommend this book to Protestants who are involved in witnessing to Roman Catholics, be they friends, relatives, co-workers or even just passing acquaintances. I also recommend it to Roman Catholics who want an explanation as to what Protestants differ with them on, and hear an apologetic as to why.

    In this book Dr. James White easily and clearly explains the crucial differences between Protestants and Catholics. I see that some Roman Catholic reviewers on here are down voting any comment which is positive about this book! Pathetic. They can't defeat Dr. White in a debate and they can't refute the truth of this book so they resort to an underhanded tactic like down voting. Shame on you Catholics! You need to get saved or else you are going to Hell!

    While trying to educate myself on the differences between the theology of the Roman Catholic Church and Protestants, this was one of the six books I ordered. White begins his book with a dialog between a man who has converted to Catholicism and his Protestant friend. The dialog held the nuggets of the issues, and pointed out the weaknesses in my own understanding. He then went on to thoroughly and scripturally explore those issues. I came out with a fuller understanding of the differences, including how divergent the definitions are, but also a renewed appreciation of the sufficiency of Jesus and supremacy of the Word. I will read it again, just for the worship!
