I know there has been a trend in some circles for 'Protestants' to convert to Roman Catholicism. I grew up in a strong Roman Catholic region myself. I was hoping to read more on the subject. I was aware that "Roman Catholic Theology and Practice: An Evangelical Assessment" by Gregg Allison has been praised by Reformed pastors. However I was reading this review where they make this comment: "One weakness of Allison's book, however, and much exploited by Roman Catholics, is that Allison makes these critiques from a perspective that he calls "evangelical theology". While providing an excellent assessment of current Roman Catholic doctrine, his critique from the perspective of a vaguely-defined point of view plays directly into the Roman Catholic critique of Protestantism in general, that of a failure to come to an agreement on many important points of doctrine. This is the first point at which Collins and Walls demonstrate their methodological jiujitsu. Rather than arguing from the point of view of an ill-defined "evangelical theology" as Allison does, Collins and Walls locate their arguments firmly in in the perspective of what they call "the ancient ecumenical church" - that is, the ancient "catholic", or "universal", church of the first four centuries, prior to any of the schisms that arose out of conciliar activities." They imply that " Roman but Not Catholic: What Remains at Stake 500 Years after the Reformation" by Jerry L. Walls and Kenneth J. Collins is a better book. Has anyone compared these two books? Any thoughts? I have been reflecting on Rom 5:1 "Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." and thankful I have not been deceived by the serious errors of Rome.
