Where is that in the Bible Oct 17, 2007
It's not too bad for a novus ordo book pretending to be Catholic. Rather limited but I find it useful sometimes in writing my sermons.
Good for quick reference Jul 25, 2007
By no means is this a thorough treatment of the scriptural basis for Roman Catholic doctrine. But, neither was it intended to be so. It does provide a handy quick-reference for reminding you of key passages in this long-standing debate. Books such as this make me a little uneasy in that they may imply an acceptance of the Sola Scriptura (Bible alone) premise - conceding the entire debate to the dubious doctrines of one side in that debate. In no way should one make that mistake - Mr. Madrid is not attempting to accept the Sola Scriptura premise but is simply providing the evidence one might need to refute the claims that scripture militates against Roman Catholic doctrines. Some of those doctrines are not so clearly spelled out in scripture as are others and to those we are indepted to the entire teaching history (Tradition) of the church. At the same time, that sacred Tradition does not contradict sacred Scripture - indeed, no such dichotomy between the two exists.
Again, this is a handy quick reference for one who is already familiar with the topic and not a treatise on the doctrines as a whole. Good to keep handy but only a start to understanding the faith fully. This is a very useful book and good to have handy for frequent reference.
Very Good, interesting book Jul 18, 2007
This is an interesting book. It is very useful to give one a better understanding of his faith. The book helps a person to be able to defend the crucial doctrines of the Catholic Church.
A Worthy Introduction May 7, 2007
"Where is that in the Bible?" by Patrick Madrid is the perfect brief book for anyone who has wondered what the Biblical basis is for some of the things that Catholics do and believe. "it is designed to be a handy reference guide, an overview of the major biblical passages that pertain to many issues that tend to come up between Catholics and non-Catholics." But even if you never use this book to debate with anyone regarding your faith, it is useful simply to have a deeper understanding of one's own faith.
There are six main divisions to the book dealing with authority, doctrines, the sacraments, customs and practices, moral issues and non-Catholic beliefs. The chapter on "Authority" discusses the roots of the papacy, the authority of the Church, the role of tradition and the role of Scripture. "Doctrines" discusses Catholic's understanding of Mary, the mother of Jesus, the Trinity, Purgatory, salvation and more. The roots of the seven sacraments are covered in the chapter on "The Sacraments." "Customs and Practices" covers many of the practices that others may take issue with in the Church. For example, the role of priestly celibacy, tithing, and repetition in prayer. "Moral Issues" covers many of the hot-button issues of our day including abortion, divorce, and homosexuality. The final chapter "Non-Catholic Beliefs" seems somewhat out of place in the book, but it deals with why certain non-Catholic beliefs are not biblically based such as the claim of Jehovah's witnesses that only 144,000 will be saved.
"Where is that in the Bible?" is not an exhaustive discussion of these beliefs and practices. Rather, it offers brief treatments with a few well-chosen Bible passages. It is a worthy introduction for those who have wondered about any of these issues.
Handy Weapon On The Religious Battlefield Mar 22, 2007
I joined the Catholic Church at Easter in 2000. I used to be a Baptist/Congregational/Bible Church Protestant. With my past and my present, I'm one of those people who's literally been on both sides of the fence in the "who's right, who's wrong" debate. Patrick Madrid, a favorite apologist of mine, compiled this wonderful little "fieldguide" to Catholicism that takes major Catholic beliefs and supplies Biblical evidence for them. He also uses the Bible to debunk a few beliefs of other religions as well.
The book is broken down into six distinct areas of study: 1) Authority, 2) Doctrines, 3) The Sacraments, 4) Customs and Practices, 5) Moral Issues, and 6) Non-Catholic Beliefs. What makes this book unique is the fact that Madrid goes out of his way to eliminate Sacred Tradition, the Catechism, and those books of the Bible not accepted by most Protestants in order to defend each issue. He will sometimes hint at these sources, but primarily uses the Bible as accepted by most mainstream Protestant faiths. Much like his book, "Answer Me This!," which takes fifty frequently asked questions by Protestants of Catholicism and answers them, Madrid breaks each section of this book into short, to-the-point explanations. This isn't an exhaustive or thorough resource book, but it is easy enough to carry along with you most of the time. I'd also suggest toting along a Bible with you, as Madrid lists numerous references but does not print each one of them out on the pages of his book.
Overall, this book combined with "Answer Me This!" will provide any Catholic with a solid defense of their faith. It's also a wonderful book to use in day-to-day Bible study. It's a wonderful little resource to have around whenever friends or neighbors question your faith.
