Coming this Fall from Crossway is Roman Catholic Theology and Practice: An Evangelical Assessment by Gregory Allison. Here’s the catalog description:
“Roman Catholics and Protestant Evangelicals often work together in a variety of social, political, and religious contexts. Nonetheless, there are significant theological differences that divide the two traditions—differences that call for a renewed commitment to deeper understanding through respectful conversation. In Roman Catholic Theology and Practice, Gregg Allison, an evangelical theologian and church historian, helps readers understand the nuances of Roman Catholic teaching. Walking readers through the official Catechism of the Catholic Church, Allison summarizes and assesses Catholic doctrine from the perspective of both Scripture and evangelical theology. Noting prominent similarities without glossing over important differences, this book will equip Christians on both sides of the ecclesiastical divide to fruitfully engage in honest dialogue with one another.”
Michael Horton says “If you are looking for a few bullet-points and caricatures, this book will disappoint. But if you are looking for a serious survey drawn from the Catholic Catechism and other primary sources, along with an evangelical assessment of each point, Professor Allison’s labors will pay rich dividends.”
Gregg R. Allison (PhD, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School) is professor of Christian theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is secretary of the Evangelical Theological Society, a book review editor for the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, an elder at Sojourn Community Church, and a theological strategist for Sojourn Network.
