Overview

When Catechism of the Catholic Church broke onto the N.Y. Times bestseller list, its astonishing success confirmed the overwhelming interest of Catholics and Protestants in understanding modern Catholicism. Has the recent openness among denominations affected Catholic teachings? In the new spirit of cooperation, is there any reason why Catholics and Protestants should remain divided?

This powerful and insightful examination of the Catholic Church provides:

  • a side-by-side comparison of Scripture with the first new worldwide Catholic catechism in 400 years
  • a summary of how modern Catholicism views grace, works, and heaven
  • 24 ways the Catholic plan of salvation still stands in contrast to biblical truth
  • a balanced overview of how the authority structure of the Roman Catholic Church compares with that of the New Testament church
  • an explanation of how participation in the Mass and other sacraments is inconsistent with faith in Christ as Savior

Clear, accurate, significant information to know and share--The Gospel According to Rome

The Catholic Church has put on a new face, and both Catholics and Evangelicals are confused. What is happening in the Catholic Church? Have key doctrinal views or beliefs changed? Drawing directly from the new Catechism of the Catholic Church, McCarthy answers those questions and addresses primary differences between Catholic doctrine and biblical Christianity.

    Read this book!

    This book provides a great discussion of how a number of core Roman Catholic teachings compare to Scriptures. It's very informative and easy to understand and follow. Lots of quotes and references - Scripture and other - so you can verify for yourself if you'd like. It also discusses the significance of these teachings to the Gospel and the individual. I suspect there are many Catholics that haven't "signed on" to all of the RCC's teachings but go along with it anyway thinking "no big deal". You may be shocked when you find out what the RCC thinks of you - despite your belief in Christ. So many things I didn't know, but wish I did a long time ago. It makes a great reference book as well.

    Outstanding, Truthful, Balanced, Reliable

    I have read several books on the subject of Roman Catholicism from the Biblical perspective. In my opinion, this is the single best book on the subject. This book is for the truth seeker, Catholic or non-Catholic. Extremely well-written, interesting, clear, and thorough in its coverage of the essentials in understanding how Roman Catholic doctrine compares to Biblical truth. Important historical information that helps understand the development of Catholic doctrine is included. The manner in which this book is written clearly shows the author's love for Catholics.

    Ask the Church

    If you want to know the truth about Catholism ask the Church. Not some anti-catholic or disgruntled ex-catholic! such as this author. Everything the Catholic Church says and does it right there in the Bible in the verses that unbelievers choose to ignore or simply gloss over.
