More than at any time in the past, Roman Catholics & evangelicals are working together.They are standing shoulder to shoulder against social evils. They are joining across denominational boundaries in renewal movements. And many evangelicals are finding the history, tradition, and grandeur of the Roman Catholic Church appealing. This newfound rapport has caused many evangelical leaders and laypeople to question the age-old disagreements that have divided Protestants and Catholics: Aren't we all saying the same thing in different language?The Roman Catholic Controversy is an absorbing look at current views of tradition and Scripture, the Papacy, the Mass, Purgatory, indulgences, and Marian doctrine. James White affirms that evangelicals and Catholics share common ground on some points. Yet there are crucial differences that remain regarding the Christian life--and the heart of the Gospel itself--that cannot be ignored.… (mer)

Do doctrinal differences between Roman Catholics and evangelicals matter? This book is an excellent introduction to the Roman Catholic-Protestant debate and a good resource for laymen. Dr. James R. White is a profound author, gifted debater, and effective communicator with a love for God's truth. He's debated numerous leading Roman Catholic apologists over the years and is well-informed of the issues and views of both sides. This book is a careful look at the current issues of tradition and scripture, "sola scriptura," the papacy, purgatory, indulgences, Marian doctrine (e.g. immaculate conception, "latria," "dulia," etc.) and most importantly, the heart of the Gospel itself (how one is declared righteous in God's sight).

This book is not based on mere "feel good, warm, fuzzy" theology, but presents the Biblical arguments well. Many Roman Catholics claim the modern Roman Catholic church today is still the same true apostolic church that was founded by Christ 2,000 years ago. But do her teachings, as she stands today, pass the test of Scripture? Or has there been an evolution in her doctrines throughout the years? Dr. White carefully quotes official Roman Catholic church documents, well-versed Roman Catholic theologians, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and other ecumenical Councils. But most importantly, he quotes Biblical passages for each topic at hand so the reader can compare and hence discern which views (the Roman Catholic's or evangelical's?) is in accord with the Scripture.

One of my favorite chapters in the book is on justification, where Dr. White beautifully and clearly explains the Biblical teaching of how one--who is inherently unrighteous--is declared righteous positionally in Christ. He illustrates that one day the Christian will be able to stand justified before the judgment throne of God--clothed not in his own supposed "righteousness," but rather in the pure spotless garments of Christ's righteousness alone. Our sins have been imputed and placed upon Christ on the cross; and in return, His righteousness are imputed (credited) to us by faith (Phil. 3:9; 2 Cor. 5:21). And while he emphasizes the biblical teaching of salvation by faith alone, Dr. White neither denies nor downplays the role and importance of good works in a believer's life. As he aptly put it: Faith alone saves, but a saving faith is never alone--it always produces good works.

This was the first book that helped me to understand better the true Gospel, the nature of saving grace, my utter hopelessness & helplessness apart from God's unmerited [b:saving grace|130916|The Saving Graces A Novel|Patricia Gaffney|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1171995451s/130916.jpg|126092], and the importance of relying upon Scripture alone as the infallible & sufficient source of truth on matters of faith and life.

I would highly recommend this book for both Roman Catholics as well as evangelicals. One would be able to understand better "what" the doctrinal differences are between the two sides and also "why". ( )
