This is just one example of the authors' general failure to clarify their assumptions. In some cases, I think the problem is even bigger: they don't realize that they HAVE biases. They are fairly good about quoting Catholic sources (though at times, they may rely too heavily on Protestant sources), but they are not good about giving the full context of the quotes, and they often draw incorrect conclusions about what the statements they've quoted _mean_ in the context of Catholic theology. This is a common problem for Protestants trying to understand Catholicism. What makes it particularly frustrating in this book is that Ankerberg and Weldon criticize Catholics for reading the Bible through a "Catholic theological framework" but they don't realize that they themselves read Catholic theology through a Protestant framework, thus drawing incorrect conclusions about it. In fact, they read all Catholic document through a hermeneutic of suspicion- more on this below.Read more ›
