Talking with Catholic Friends and Family

 

Product Description

Why is it often difficult for evangelical Christians to talk about Christianity with their Catholic friends? What are the differences that sometimes lead to misunderstandings between the two?
Capturing the heartbeat of the Roman Catholic way of life, Talking with Catholic Friends and Family provides an insightful glimpse into the way Catholics think about God, the church, getting to heaven, and the practice of their religion. With compassion and clarity, James McCarthy tells real–life stories that contrast biblical Christianity with Catholicism—and does so in a way that emphasizes what true saving faith is all about.

Readers will learn:

    • ways that Catholics and evangelicals view Jesus and salvation differently

    • Tradition shapes what Catholics believe

    • to minister more lovingly and effectively to their Catholic friends

Reviews by Early Readers

Talking with Catholic Friends and Family is a down-to-earth account of the beliefs, hopes, doubts, and fears of the Catholic people. Loaded with practical insights from God’s Word, it provides the truth that sets people free.

—Wilma Sullivan, Former Sister of Mercy

Through the mouths of Catholics, this book presents what is really going on inside Roman Catholicism. A valuable tool for those who want to understand Catholicism.

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

This book is an excellent resource. Loaded with carefully researched information, it provides a biblical analysis of where Roman Catholicism has gone wrong. Through it you will better understand how Catholics think and be able to explain to them the good news of Jesus Christ.

—Yvonne Freeman, Former Sister of the Holy Family

I read this book with enthusiasm and identification. Enthusiasm because the author has explained so well how the doctrines of Roman Catholicism affect the lives of the Catholic people. Identification because the many stories found in it caused me to recall my own search for God as a Catholic nun.

—Rocio Pestaña Segovia, Former Franciscan Nun

 

A refreshingly accurate and readable presentation of Catholic thinking in layman’s terms.

—Mary Kraus, Former Franciscan Sister
