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

The Gospel According to Rome is tenderly written, scriptural sound, scrupulously fair, and historically accurate. This is a book for all those who genuinely love Roman Catholics.

Bartholomew F. Bewer, Former Discalced Carmelite Priest

I wish I had read this book 20 years ago! It would have turned me to the Bible as the source of truth by which to live. It would have freed me from doctrines and practices that neither satisfied me nor gave me life.

Bob Bush, Former Jesuit Priest

    This is one of the most slanted and disingenuous books I have ever read.
