Comments If Protestantism is True

  1. When I saw this book in the store, it was one of those books that really jumped out at me I like learning about other denominations and what makes them unique, and this one promised to show me the differences of Protestantism, while disproving some of what differentiates it from Catholicism While it does do what it sets out to do, I m not quite sure it was what I was expecting.This book covers a lot And this could be its downfall It seems like the author was so set on including absolutely everyt [...]


  2. Short review The author tries to show contradictions between the logical conclusions of certain Protestant doctrines and either other Protestant doctrines, or what is reasonable to expect of God in communicating His truths regarding salvation While the author does a good job of critiquing Protestant doctrines of Sola Scriptura and interpretative authority, many of his other arguments are fatally flawed Typically, he either assumes that Protestants hold to some auxiliary point that they do not, o [...]


  3. Overall a good book and worthwhile read There are some points that are very valid here, like where scripture comes from and the somewhat dubious exclusion of what we Protestants call the Apocrypha It was in the Septuagint Greek OT that was used by Jesus, Paul, Peter, etc I would recommend Protestants read this because it does take a look at misconceptions on Catholicism Yet I don t think the author makes a conclusive argument for authority resting solely in Rome The case against sola scriptura i [...]


  4. Clear concise, a good honest look at the differences similarities between the Catholic Church the many varied Protestant Churches.Quite blunt in some ways but if you re a sincere Catholic it all rings true It was good to have some clarity affirmation in some of these areas of my faith.I wonder how my Protestant friends would feel about the content of this book It occurs to me that we will tend to read things that will affirm reinforce our current beliefs I read this because I am Catholic, if I w [...]


  5. In his book, If Protestantism is True The Reformation Meets Rome, Devin Rose examines the claims made by the Protestant faith and defends the Catholic faith with knowledge and truth His examination of Protestant views is both fair and equal, but still focuses on explaining how it is incorrect Despite his opposition to Protestant teachings, he shows deep respect for their beliefs, especially as a former Protestant himself He avoids argumentative language and never slanders them for their differen [...]


  6. Great book that explains the history of Protestantism and discusses a lot of questions issues that all Protestants should seek to answer and address A must read for all non Catholic Christians.


  7. A good survey of Protestant Catholic controversies from the standpoint of a convert.I m sorry that he didn t use the subjunctive in the title and in the codas he presents throughout the book, summarizing a section of reflections by thinking about the logical consequences of Protestant theology From Rose s standpoint and mine , Protestantism is in error, so, to my taste, it would be better to describe a condition contrary to fact If Protestantism were true, we would have to believe that God is pl [...]


  8. Pretty good examination of the differences between Protestantism and Catholicism As a Catholic, naturally I favor my own church and believe she has the fullness of faith, but it was good to learn about the Protestant side of things and see an in depth examination of the problem of authority I think some could argue he goes a bit reductio ad absurdam but overall I think it s well reasoned.


  9. Great historical review of the schisms between Catholic and Protestant theology I learned so much about the Catholic and the Protestant belief structures, and the book was very readable I recommend this to anyone wanting to know, researching, or writing a paper, on the theological differences between Catholic and Protestant theology.


  10. the only thing I didn t like is that he kept the book short and doesn t dive deep into any one thing makes a very good argument in everything and gives sources, but I guess I m of a go off on a tangent type guy.


  11. This book is fantastic It focuses on the questions that need to be answered first I am looking forward to the new version the author is currently working on.


  12. Rose raises several good questions some of which I have not yet been able to satisfactorily answer.


  13. It would seem that belief would be a prerequisite for any interest in reading this book But one theme that I came away with was an examination of what we believe and how have we come to believe it.


  14. The book takes the strategy of assuming Protestantism is true, then sees if sense can be made of Church history and theology.


  15. I am not saying I agree with most of what the author is saying I am a protestant But as an apologist I recognize anyone who can argue well This man does.



  16. After reading Francis de Sales work on essentially the same topics, this book was very disappointing I have very little good to say about it, to the point that I have to intersperse my positive comments among my negative comments I shall endeavor to be as succinct as possible.There are a number of typos in this book there is inconsistent capitalization of divine pronouns at one place he, at another He, both referring to God or Jesus Christ , missing prepositions, mistyped words is instead of it [...]


  17. The book was written by an atheist to Protestant to Catholic convert, and it addresses some of the assumptions of Protestantism vs Catholic teachings.Pros The chapters on tradition and Scripture are strong, logical, and well sourced I think the author is successful in highlighting some of the challenges of Sola Scriptura as well as discussing the historical development of the Biblical canon.He includes a lot of citations from the Patristic Era, with a focus on historical continuity and the ecume [...]


  18. i thought overall this book was solid, thought out, and well organized most people just regurgitate what they ve been told about the Catholic church and the author really pushes the arguments that separate protestants and catholics to their logical conclusions in a very simple straight forward manner it wasn t dense or heavy which ended up being a fast read i caught myself saying, well what about this and in the next paragraph he would address those issues it was clear his experience as a former [...]


  19. Excellent reading Clear, concise, and straightforward I m a former Southern Baptist, and I can tell you that he clearly understands the problems and confusion of Protestants, even those problems that Protestants don t even know they have Two quotes come to mind after having read this terrific book 1 About Jesus Christ and the Church, I simply know they re just one thing, and we shouldn t complicate the matter St Joan of Arc.2 An acquaintance once remarked to Flannery O Connor that the Eucharist [...]


  20. I think this is an outstanding introduction to the defense of Catholicism critique of Protestantism He gets to the heart of the issues, though he doesn t really go into much detail I didn t give the book 5 stars because he tended to over simplify the Protestant position almost implying that you d have to be an idiot to be a Protestant While I think there are strong arguments against Protestantism, it s a very complicated issue that goes far beyond the scope of this book So, whether your Protesta [...]


  21. This book is a masterful work of Catholic apologetics It has all the arguments historical, philosophical and theological in a concise easy to read volume I ve exhausted an entire highlighter on this book because of the abundance of precisely phrased and highly quotable arguments to use in the Catholic Protestant debate If I had to pick just one book to give to non Catholic Christians it would be this one as it represents the greatest challenge to Protestantism that I ve read It occupies a place [...]


  22. This was a great read for someone who is searching for the historical schism from the original Church by Protestant Reformers and their break from the teachings of the Church Father s The disunity and acceptance of multiple doctrines of interpreting scripture exploits the weakness of Sola Sciptura and Sola Fide arguments on faith Great read for any apologist.


  23. Interesting read on why Protestantism isn t legit Did we really need a book on this Isnt it obvious Anywho, it gave me to think about.


  24. Excellent book A very interesting approach Devin takes the fundamental Protestant claims at face value and logically lays out what realities would follow from them Because they don t follow




  25. Conversion stories are always interesting and Mr Rose s was no exception and an excellent refutation of common Protestant foundational arguments as well.
