The Roman Catholic Controversy

James White also authored The King James Only Controversy in 1995.  This 1996 “Controversy” book is directed toward the continuing debate over how evangelicals should consider the faith of Roman Catholics.  White follows the view that Catholics cannot be considered true believers if they are basing their faith on the Roman Catholic Church’s doctrine. White […]

Saint Thomas Aquinas: “The Dumb Ox”

Chesterton wrote the kind of books that make you think.  He is one of the most quoted authors on culture and religious life.  He himself writes, “For upon this point modern writers write a great deal of nonsense; and show more than their normal ingenuity in missing the point.” As in his similar book on […]

Catechism of the Catholic Church 1994

A Few Odds & Ends… First, while I am recommending books about ECT, I want to encourage you to buy the 1994 Catechism of the Catholic Church.  It is advertised as “the first new Catechism in more than 400 years.”  It is produced by the Vatican for Catholics and is a 800 page, detailed account […]

Protestants and Catholics: Do They Now A...

This is another book about ECT which I found very helpful and informative.  It is forwarded by John MacArthur, R.C. Sproul and D. James Kennedy.  It is a longer treatment of more than 300 pages including six appendixes.  You also get the ECT document reproduced as the last appendix. Ankerberg is well known for his […]

A View of Rome

During this time of the Evangelicals And Catholics Together (ECT) accord, I think it is important to be able to put good information into people’s hands.  This is an easy read of fewer than 150 pages but gives precise and usable information on understanding the Catholic church and seeing the issues of salvation.  Armstrong gives […]

Evangelicals & Catholics Together Toward

This is a collection of articles written by Colson, Neuhaus, George Weigel, Mark A. Noll, Avery Dulles, and J.I. Packer defending their support of the ECT statement. Also, they attempt to answer the criticisms leveled by R.C. Sproul, John MacArthur and others who have declared that ECT invalidates the reformation theological position of sola fida […]

Faith Alone

This 1995 Baker book is a Reformed or Protestant answer to the Evangelicals and Catholics Together accord. It is forwarded by Michael Horton and recommended by John MacArthur, R. Albert Mohler, Jr., James M. Boice and Jerry Bridges. Sproul has done a great service to those of us who cannot agree with the accord in […]

Saint Francis of Assisi

To be honest, I bought this book because I have determined to read whatever I can by G.K. Chesterton.  And, again, I was not disappointed!  As a bonus, I learned more about the founder of the Franciscans and the whole monastic movement.  If you can accept the fact that this is written by a Catholic […]

Reckless Faith

This is another timely book by MacArthur. As usual, it is well written and documented. He is critical of the consumer mentality within Christianity and of the lack of discernment among its leadership. He even uses the term ‘‘fundamentalist’’ in a positive light and compliments its founders as men of discernment. This volume is timely  […]


I just read this 1947 book by Lewis as a part of a study on present day Charismatics. Among more recent books on the miraculous, this was a pleasant discovery and a refreshing engagement. Though you have to read Lewis in low gear, the slow journey is always worth it.   Chapter fourteen, ‘‘The Grand Miracle’’ […]
