Is Catholicism a cult? Do Catholics worship Mary? Why do Catholics have statues in their churches? The truth may surprise you! Highly recommended by priests and catechists, "Catholicism for Protestants" is a Biblical explanation of Roman Catholicism as told by Shane Schaetzel (FullyChristian.Com) -- an Evangelical convert to the Catholic Church through Anglicanism. The book is concise and formatted in an easy-to-read Question & Answer catechism style. It addresses many of the common questions Evangelical Protestants have about Catholicism. It is ideal for Protestants seeking more knowledge about the Catholic Church, and for Catholics seeking a quick refresher course on fundamental Catholic teaching. It's an excellent book for Catholics and Protestants alike!
The book contains a NIHIL OBSTAT from Reverend Allan Saunders, Censor Librorum, and an IMPRIMATUR from the Most Reverend James V. Johnston, Jr., Bishop of Springfield-Cape Girardeau.
Foreword by The Rev. Christopher Phillips, Pastor of Our Lady of the Atonement Catholic Church in San Antonio, Texas.
"There are many books addressing the difference between Protestants and Catholics. Some are very detailed and cumbersome; others are too simple or not complete in their scope. Shane Schaetzel has provided us with a simple question and answer format that is both complete and thorough, but also simple and easily approachable. May it be used to reach many souls for Jesus and his Catholic Church." -- Steve Ray: Catholic Apologist, Author, Film Producer, CatholicConvert.com
"Shane Schaetzel has done a great service to Protestants and Catholics alike by presenting Catholic truth clearly and simply through a series of questions and answers." -- Fr. Christopher Phillips, Catholic convert and priest, AtonementOnline.com
"A great read!" -- Michael Voris: Catholic Journalist, ChurchMilitant.TV
