Is Rome the True Church?: A Consideration of the Roman Catholic Claim
A major critical analysis of the Roman Catholic Church's exclusive claim of infallibility.
In 2007 the president of the Evangelical Theological Society converted to Roman Catholicism. His conversion and subsequent resignation stirred up questions that always swirl around such high-profile conversions: Why do some Protestants become Catholics? Is Roman Catholicism a false church? Which church is the true church?
Norman Geisler and Joshua Betancourt answer these questions in Is Rome the True Church?, a major critical analysis of the Roman church's claim to being the only true church. Since this claim is the most fundamental of all Catholic dogmas—all other doctrines being based on it—the whole of the Roman system stands or falls here. The authors explain and critique the Roman church's biblical, historical, theological, and philosophical arguments on behalf of its claim, digging into the best primary and secondary Catholic sources on the subject. This book has answers for students, thoughtful evangelicals, and anyone interested in Roman Catholicism.
