Reviews by Early Readers

This book is an absolute must for pastors, soul-winners, and Catholics searching for the truth! A valuable resource providing a clear comparison of scriptural truth and the doctrines of Roman Catholicism.

—Wilma Sullivan, Former Sister of Mercy


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

—Bartholomew F. Brewer, 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


The Gospel According to Rome presents Catholicism with fairness and great accuracy. The author draws from current Catholic documents including the new Catechism of the Catholic Church. It is refreshing to find that there is neither distortion nor ridicule but carefully researched information. This book will be of great service to both Catholics and non-Catholics who are interested in comparing Catholicism with biblical Christianity.

—Mary Kraus, Former Franciscan Sister


In 1983, as a Catholic priest, I searched in vain in Christian bookstores for something written about my Church. I wanted to read something by someone who knew Catholicism well and who also knew the Bible. Since that time, I have known many others who have made similar quests only to return equally frustrated. The book I longed for is now available. With compassion, care, and clarity, James McCarthy gives a message that is long overdue. The Gospel According to Rome is not only clear and well documented, but in it you will also feel the heartbeat of Catholicism.

—Richard Bennett, Former Dominican Priest


The carefully researched and organized Roman Catholic doctrines presented in this book are exactly what I was taught and then taught to others during my 20 years of preparation and practice as a Catholic priest. The comparison of these dogmas with the Word of God gives this excellent book a special value. I highly recommend it to all who are interested in understanding Roman Catholicism.

—Joseph Tremblay, Former Priest of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate


The Gospel According to Rome provides both a panoramic view and an incisive analysis of Roman Catholicism. Having served nine years as a cloistered nun, I especially appreciate this book’s liberating message. May God use it to His glory!

—Rocio Pestaña Segovia, Former Franciscan Nun


Copy on Back of Book

When the 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 teaching? 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
