Format: Paperback
John Ankerberg and John Weldon have written a number of apologetics book together, such as Fast Facts® on Jehovah's Witnesses, The Facts on the Mormon Church, Behind the Mask of Mormonism: From Its Early Schemes to Its Modern Deceptions, What Do Mormons Really Believe?: What the Ads Don't Tell You, The Facts on Halloween, etc.

Ankerberg wrote in an introductory section of this 1995 book, "On January 19, 1995... I participated in a private meeting with ten Evangelical Christian leaders. Among those at the meeting were individuals who had signed the Evangelicals and Catholics Together: Toward a Common Mission statement in 1994... The purpose of our meeting was to see if we could avert a permanent breach between those Evangelical leaders who signed it and those who didn't... we asked our friends to remove their names from the document. But they declined to do so. Next, we asked if they were willing to revise the ECT document itself since they wouldn't recant of their participation. Again, they declined... To us...

It's no secret that Evangelicalism has seen more and more ecumenically minded leaders reach out to Catholics. This is seen lately due to the growing concern over the freedom to speak out against abortion, gay marriage, etc... In the last few years the Manhattan Declaration has once again brought Catholic and Protestant leaders to agree on these important social issues. In the 90's the first major meeting of the sort was when the Evangelicals and Catholics Together document was drafted and signed by major US leaders from both groups. This book was one of many responses to that event. Ankerberg and Weldon have done a great job showing where both groups have major differences (and agreements) and a response to the ECT document.

One of the main problems with this book is that Ankerberg and Weldon start off with several assumptions which the book never fully proves. For instance, it appears that they hold that a belief in forensic imputation is necessary for salvation. Those who've studied the history of Christianity will know how problematic this is, but in the context of the book, what is troubling is that they don't adequately explain why one has to believe in a precise formula of justification in order to be justified. Nor do they adequately defend the doctrine of forensic justification itself: they seem to assume that most of their readers already share it.

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.

as a former catholic, i can relate to the information found in this book...it is true. you cannot work your way into God's favor...there is nothing you can add to what was done at Calvary. i know it is a comfortable religion, but wake up!!!

I often find reviews such as the negative ones about this book, amazing. The reviewers, who obviously disagree, must be from the "church" that the writers are critiquing or find that discernment when looking for wolves in sheeps clothing is somehow bad for the sheep. The authors took the time to list references and most of them from the 1994 cathecism. Rome's own book! Please include your more well thought out responses other than, "They misquoute, they misquote!" Really? In what way? If your goal is to correct a supposed wrong, then correct it. Anyone can say it was a bad book because of misquotes without proving it! It's time for Christians everywhere to stand on the Truth and let no dilution whatsoever take place. If anyone preaches another gospel...Galatians 1:9&10
Thanks for a wonderful book!!
