Item Description...
Why is it often difficult for evangelical Christians to talk about Christianity with their Catholic friends? What are the differences that sometimes lead to misunderstandings between the two?

Capturing the heartbeat of the Roman Catholic way of life, Talking with Catholic Friends and Family provides an insightful glimpse into the way Catholics think about God, the church, getting to heaven, and the practice of their religion. With compassion and clarity, James McCarthy tells real?life stories that contrast biblical Christianity with Catholicism?and does so in a way that emphasizes what true saving faith is all about. Readers will learn:

ways that Catholics and evangelicals view Jesus and salvation differently
Tradition shapes what Catholics believe
to minister more lovingly and effectively to their Catholic friends

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I loved it!  Nov 27, 2006
It's apparent from other reviews this book is a love it or hate it. As I said, I loved it. I was born and raised Catholic and am now at a point in my life of searching for a bit more than what I am finding in my Catholic church. This book helped answer questions to a few things I had questioned myself throughout the years, and it also pointed out many other things I hadn't thought of. I would agree, it does sound a bit harsh against the Catholic faith, but McCarthy backs all of these arguments up with scripture. I highly recommend this book.
Talking with Catholic Friends and Family  Sep 16, 2006

The author wrote this book because he loves Catholics and wants them to be saved through faith in Jesus Christ, not through their trusting in religious liturgy and sacraments.

We must love Roman Catholics enough to tell them the truth even if they malign and assign all manner of ill to the messenger. Some will become angry, others will respond in faith. Nevertheless, if we truly love them, we will not hold back the truth simply because they are displeased with the message.

James G. McCarthy's writings and ministry never "bash." That is not his calling. This is not a book of unrighteous judgment or condemnation. You may have noticed that every doctrine of Catholicism brings members into bondage to the Catholic church. By that I mean, they need their church to be saved. They require their church to receive forgiveness for their sins. They need their church for everything! Religion brings man into bondage; conversely, saving faith according to God's Word does not.

" Now the natural man doesn't receive the things of God's Spirit, for they are foolishness to him, and he can't know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

But he who is spiritual discerns all things, and he himself is judged by no one." 1 Corinthians 2:14-15

Spiritual maturity demands that we test doctrines, values, and weigh propositions and exercise sensible discretion--in order to discover true character of those claiming to be "Bashed."

James G. McCarthy, a former Roman Catholic is widely published. Without cost, one can read his writings that demonstrate by their character, the fallaciousness and ill will of those who slander him.

As you read, my sincere prayer is that God will reveal His truth to your heart and mind. God bless you.
Talk about Misrepresentation!  May 22, 2006
I bought this book because its title "Talking with Catholic Friends and Family" and its subtitle: "Understanding...How they think and feel; why they trust in Tradition, and What the Bible Teaches" sounded so gentle and loving.

It was anything BUT!! McCarthy's feeling of moral superiority to Catholics along with the glee which he unabashadly gushes in describing various Catholics who have left their faith, has a distinctive non-Christian flavor. What an amazing feat of theology and divine inspiration that McCarthy (who offers no credentials, incidentally) has discovered God's 'truth' all on his own. This book does not represent itself appropriately as a guide to talking with and 'understanding' Catholics, but serves rather as a critical judgement of them and would have more aptly been titled: "The Only Good Catholic is an Ex-Catholic".

Don't Bother "Talking With Catholic Friends And Family"   Apr 2, 2006
I recently read the book by James McCarthy entitled "Talking With Catholic Friends And Family". I have read other books by Mr. McCarthy, including "The Gospel According to Rome". In the prior book, Mr. McCarthy did a fairly decent job of presenting the Catholic viewpoint and then presenting his viewpoint and why he believes it is biblically correct. As a Roman Catholic, it was interesting and enlightening to see clear explanations of what one believes. I mention this because I did not find his most recent book "Talking With Catholic Friends And Family" to be nearly as tolerant. Mr. McCarthy appears to be convinced that there is no salvation in the Catholic Church and that anyone who discovered Jesus cannot in truth remain in the Catholic Church. Apparently it doesn't matter what Christian church you are involved in, as long as it isn't Catholic. If you believe this statement, this book is for you! But if you are looking for solid informaton about the Catholic Faith, this is not the place to go. You'd be much better off getting a copy of the Catechism of the Catholic Church and spending the time reading that and following the cross-references to Scripture. There are many, many books, both Catholic and non-Catholic, that do a much, much better job explaining the Catholic Faith.

Love is in the Pages  Feb 20, 2006
Talking With Catholic Friends And Family was a very good read. It shows true love in how to talk to your friends about Roman Catholicism.

After reading three books from Jim McCarthy, I an sure he is using Biblical truths and a willing to help others who may be stuck in a rut of religion without faith.
