enough Aug 9, 2006
Rehashed B.S. We've heard it time and time again. Mind your own business, stop trying to "save" us with your pathetic shallow reasoning. The agenda is laughable, given the "distinguished" ancient history of the authors' Church. :-) Do what Saint Paul recommends and work out your own salvation and stop insulting readers intelligence due to the authors lack of the same. And as a favor to the author and the like minded, just stay away from me and similar minded Catholics. We might not react in a proper Christian manner to your offense.
Maybe if one looked at the other side... Aug 26, 2004
Perhaps if one addressed Catholicism as another option and looked at, truthfully looked at, the biblical support behind Catholicism and did not approach it immediately trying to discredit it, one would find that Catholicism is really the way to go.
It's too bad nobody does.
Jesus is the Answer Feb 17, 2004
Books such as this one can provide useful information about what the Roman Catholic Church teaches, but often fall short of providing a means of persuading Catholics to learn the truth. The doctrines that are taught by the Catholic Church leave little hope for anyone to be saved and leave the possibility open that the Pope may still need to suffer for some of his sins. What Catholics need to hear is that Jesus is the only way into heaven. The interesting thing is that there are some Catholics that believe this and some of them do not believe the doctrines of the Catholic Church yet they are unable to see that what they believe is in direct contrast with the Catholic Church. This book will not help with these people because they are blind to what the Catholic Church teaches. But if you are trying to win a Catholic priest of someone else who truly believes what the Catholic Church teaches this book may be very helpful to help you to talk to that person.
Bad Research, Worse Results Dec 17, 2002
Let me begin with the end of the book, the Bibliography: It lists a number of fine Catholic apologetic works from Keating and Hahn which answer the authors poor arguments, many times over. It is obvious he did not read these, but just placed them here as a sham.
This is an uneducated author in biblical research and church history, not to mention a person with an already established agenda which will not be deterred by the facts.
It is a true shame to unleash this type of drivel on the average educated American church-goer....anyone who has internet access can easily verify his nebulous and some untrue statements.
So sad. If you want ALL the answers (and truthful, reasearched information as well) to this sloppy, mealy-mouthed tirade, go read Karl Keating's Catholicism and Fundamentalism. You can trust it.
