If you are a catholic who yearns to defend yourself against the attacks of 'Bible Christians' this is the book for you. If you are a protestant with questions about Catholicism, this is the book for you. Contained in this book are the basis of the Catholic, and indeed the one true Church intended by Christ. Sola Scriptura is totally unbiblical. If you read this book and can still deny the one true church of Christ then you are living in the sin of iniquity. This book will not only arm you for the battle, but indeed will make out of you a warrior. You will be able to defend -- Biblically, I might add -- every dogma and tradition -- those teachings passed on by word of mouth -- the Catholic Church teaches.

If you are a Catholic who seriously takes your faith, or have been around religious discussion forums (online or offline) soon enough you will come across a barrage of very passionate anti-Catholic ideas and sentiments. There are certainly many religious groups with a bone to pick with Catholic Church and its teachings (it could hardly be otherwise with a religious group that counts more than a billion people as its members and a truly global reach over several millennia), but some of the most vociferous attacks seem to be coming from a particular kind of Protestant Fundamentalism. Many of us are frankly mildly shocked after our first encounters with this form of dogmatic anti-Catholicism. Not because they present new arguments that make us question our faith for the first time. On the contrary, most of the arguments are centuries old, and we are mostly shocked to find them repackaged in a new guise that is at times as childish and intellectually dishonest as they come. The only truly new invention seems to be the new level of animosity and vociferousness. If you have ever been in a situation where you have to talk to one of these Fundamentalists, you probably know what I mean. And if you would like to know more about where this "neofundamentalism" is coming from - historically and intellectually - then Karl Keating's book is the definitive resource. It covers most of the important topics that pertain to Fundamentalism - its origin, some of the current vocal fundamentalist Catholic-bashers, the tactics and arguments used by these groups, the long discussion on most prominent Catholic beliefs that are under the assault, and the most effective Catholic apologetic practices. The book was written in the late 80s, but for the most part it has aged well. Of course, one huge tectonic shift that has occurred over the past twenty years has been the advent of the internet, and many of the fundamentalist anti-Catholic groups have found this to be the most appealing and the easiest way of spreading their message. However, the message has remained largely the same, and in that respect "Catholicism and Fundamentalism" is as relevant today as when it was first written.

This is a great book for the Catholic apologist, the Protestant willing to hear the Catholic side of the story, and really, any sincere truth-seeking Christian. It will broaden your views. You will find that Catholicism is much more biblical than most people thought. The only bad thing is that Keating tends to stereotype Fundamentalists and doesn't seem to have as much respect for them as he should. But don't let that stop your from reading it!

This book is an awesome defense of the Truth of the Holy Catholic Church agaisnt the lies that anti-Catholics hurl against it. This is an excelent book for Catholics to read who are having to defend the Faith against protestant attacks.

This book is great! It explains why Catholics are Catholic and not fundamentalists or something like that! And we have some really amazing reasons. =)

A good reference for Catholics and Fundamentalists with questions. These two groups have different world views. The book is well organized to answer questions about the Inquisition, Popes who sinned, and other issues which are brought up in anti-Catholic literature. Truth seekers will learn the sources of information in the literature. How I wish I had read this book years ago! My Catholic spouse hadn’t a clue how to answer these questions from the perspective of my world view.
