Jude Winkler's booklet "Great Men in the New Testament" is 32 pages long and colourfully illustrated. It tells the story of 15 key leaders in the early New Testament church, mostly based on information we have from the New Testament itself. It is meant to be a children's book, but can also be equally inspiring to adults. I was moved by it even though I have studied the life and mission of the early church from an academic and missiological viewpoint. The numerous illustrations were well done and portrayed the rough and tumble times of the early Christian movement.

But, there were a few aspects to the booklet I found disappointing because the true facts were twisted to support the Roman Catholic bias of the author. First, the booklet calls Peter the first "Pope", even though the term is never used in the Bible to refer to Peter. Calling him "Pope" can mislead young children or uninformed adults to believe that the Roman Catholic institution existed in New Testament times, whereas the early church was a grassroots house church movement (Acts 2:41-47, 20:20, Rom 16:3-5). Second, the booklet calls James and Jude the "cousins" of Jesus to support the Roman Catholic doctrine of Mary's perpetual virginity, even though the Bible clearly teaches they were Jesus' "brothers" (see Matthew 1:24-25, 12:46, 13:55, 27:56; Mark 3:31, 6:3; John 2:12, 7:3-5; Acts 1:14; Gal 1:19; Jude 1:1). Yes, Mary the mother of Jesus had other children after Jesus; she was not a perpetual virgin (Matthew 1:24-25). Sex is not sinful, but was invented by God! Third, the booklet says Jesus is said to be present with us in "His Church and in His Sacraments.

I like the St. Joseph's Books because they present hard to discuss topics easily. They are also a great tool for adults to "brush up" on various topics pertaining to our beautiful and rich Roman Catholic faith.
