Overview

Well-known authors and researchers John Ankerberg, John Weldon, and Dillon Burroughs have updated and revised The Facts on Roman Catholicism, an important title from the popular Facts On Series (more than 1.9 million copies of books from this series sold).

Presented in a convenient question-and-answer format, readers are given a general overview and detailed information based on a biblical evaluation of the Roman Catholic Church. They discover similarities and differences between the basic theologies of Catholicism and Protestantism. Topics include:

  • What does the Catholic Church teach concerning salvation?
  • What unique role does Mary have in Roman Catholicism, and is it biblical?

With 800 million members, the Catholic church is among the most powerful voices in the world community. The Facts On Catholicism answers the most-asked questions about this influential church and tutors Christians who are unfamiliar yet curious about Catholic doctrine and practices. Promoted through Ankerberg's nationally syndicated broadcast.
