This book presents a highly focused and unique collection of correspondence between two friends who have spent many hours discussing their faiths -- one a Catholic priest, the other an evangelical minister. Their candid dialogue illustrates how we can talk about opposing beliefs without resorting to criticism that is mean-spirited, sensationalistic, or inaccurate.
The result is a one-of-a-kind, balanced presentation of issues that allows readers to make their own informed conclusions about the differences between evangelical Christianity and Catholicism. The authors focus on six key issues:
-- Is God's Word found in Scripture alone, or Scripture plus Tradition?
-- Who are the teachers and rulers of the church?
-- How does a person become saved?
-- What is the meaning of the Last Supper?
-- What relation, if any, do we have to Mary, angels, and the saints?
-- What does it take to get to heaven?
Readers will find this book hard to put down -- it's filled with fresh insights that bring much-needed clarity and respect to both sides of the ongoing dialogue between Catholics and evangelical Christians.
