THIS BOOK IS BOTH 5 STARS AND 1 STAR.

This book is great for one thing and terrible for another. I grew up protestant. My wife grew up Catholic. When we married she left the Catholic church. I wanted to learn how Catholics and Protestants were different because I had almost no idea (Besides what I had seen in Sister Act). If you are a blank slate and you want a hard and fast introduction to the many many many areas of difference this is the book for you. No books covers more ground SPECIFICALLY ON THE DIFFERENCES than this book. In that regard it is a 5.

If you are seeking this book because you want to WITNESS TO or to DEBATE a Catholic BEWARE. Ron is not very accurate, presents many straw man and false premise arguments, says things that even other protestants wouldn't agree on. He seems to have not done extensive homework into what the Catholic church actually teaches. I'm not even a Catholic and I feel that I could debate this guy while pretending to be a Catholic and win. If you approach a competent Catholic and this is your only gun in your holster prepare to have your lunch eaten and to leave with your tail between your legs. It will NOT prepare you for an actual interaction with a trained Catholic.

Youtube search the debate between Pacwa and Martin debate. That's the type of material you need.

I found out Catholics believe closely to Protestants. I'm not a theologian or a debater, so the differences aren't worth hurting someone, in my opinion. The book has given me food for thought, so if a question comes up, I'm prepared to nicely and tactfully give a gentle reply.

I think the reason for all this bashing is that Bible believers have only 1 source of their faith, and that is the Bible. There are preachers out there that, possibly unknowingly, teach untruths. Preachers who are schooled in Greek and Hebrew translations are more apt to speak the truth. You can take any 2 Catholics and they will have different beliefs, because they each were taught by a different church, or a different school, parent, whatever. Wow, I can go on forever!
I know what I was taught at 12 years of Catholic school. It's too bad they didn't teach me to open up the Bible. Jesus said "Spread the good news" and I never heard that expression. I saw a sign when I was little saying "Jesus Saves" and I didn't know what the heck that meant. I have never been so strong in my faith, so grateful to Jesus words can't describe, since I became a Bible thumper.
I can go on forever!

This is a hard one to grade. I own probably 5 copies - [all used]. We use this as the basis for an adult education class. We never move to the next argument until we have "finished" the previous. The arguments RR uses are classic AntiCatholic rhetoric that have been around for centuries - nothing new here. When we work through each argument - looking up the verses that Rhodes cites but also those he conveniently skips, the number of times that he says "there is no evidence" [the "no evidence" argument is powerful with atheists - yet he uses it too. Odd. ], the selective picking and choosing of the Church Fathers when it suits him [the same Fathers who verify the Eucharist, the Pope, etc!], the amazing number of logical fallacies present, well, I'd give it a "5" for training Catholics how to defend their faith! Yes, my class is at a CATHOLIC PARISH. Yes, this book has been awesome for training Catholic apologists to know their Faith and how to answer the naysayers. Of course the teacher needs to have a solid grasp of the Truth [ours is a well educated priest] - you ARE studying the mind of an author who wants to destroy that faith. But studying one's opponents is the method of St. Thomas Aquinas who studied the writings of others [for the purpose of refuting their error] and to help frame a better understanding of our Catholic Faith. "10 Most" is a collection of such errors - most are easily refuted, but with few complex doozies that need to be teased out also. This book is best if you have spiritual humility and prayer, calling on the guidance of the Spirit - it can be valuable. And definitely get Keating, Madrid, Shea, etc., as "guides." They have addressed all the material here.Read more ›

Mr. Rhodes continues his ignorant diatribes in the hope that he can prove that his personal preferences in religion are superior to the historic Catholic Christian faith that has come to us through the centuries. This is an other book of lies and hatred. Not worth your time or money.

This book is so completely and fundamentally flawed in it's presentation of Catholicism that there is no way that even the most ignorant of Catholics could possibly think that this is what the Church actually believes. Every (and I mean EVERY) one of the "points" from this book have been thoroughly debunked repeatedly.

Not only have I "eaten the lunch" of those who've tried to use this book to "convert" me, at least one of those Protestants who tried are now Catholic.

Rhodes has a poor understanding of Catholic doctrine. The Church does not teach a Catholic can earn their way to heaven with good works. But good works flow from a vibrant faith in Jesus, cooperation with his grace and a love of Jesus. James is clear that faith and works go together.
