I am wondering if any of you out there have read or heard of a book called “Roman Catholics and Evangelicals” by Norman Giesler and Ralph MacKenzie. The book highlights the “agreements” and differences between the afore mentioned groups, but is extremely protestant slanted, for example states “Jesus’ words need not be taken in the literal sense of ingesting his body and blood” in regards to transubstantiation. I was given this book by a good friend of mine who is a non-denom. protestant and was given this book by her pastor as a response to the questions i began to pose. While she has come a long way in her understanding of the faith and it’s biblical base, she still struggles with the authority question. In any case, my question is this
- Does there exist a book or any other info that addresses this book directly? Many of the arguments made in this book are easily refuted because of their misunderstanding of catholicism and ignorance of scripture, but it would be interesting to read how others have responded as well.
Car c’est a toi qui appartiennent
le regne, la puissance et la gloire,
pour les siecles des siecles.
