Item Description...
Scholar and apologist Eric Svendsen is very committed to the notion of sola scriptura, one of the founding principles of the Reformation. He believes that sola scriptura is "the true source of apostolic faith" and that authority beyond that is not trustworthy. So it is no surprise that he challenges the so-called infallible authority of the Roman Catholic church. For him, that authority does not exist. He wrote Upon This Slippery Rock to help people understand how Catholic apologists are trying to argue that Catholic infallibility is true by asking three basic "how do you know" questions: "How do you know, apart from your own fallible private judgment, that what you believe is the truth?"; "How do you know that the denomination you picked is the 'right' denomination?"; "How do you know which books should and should not have been included in the canon of Scripture?" By posing these questions, claims Svendsen, the Catholic apologist hopes to show that though your judgment and decisions may be fallible, those of the Catholic church are not, because of the authority given to it by Jesus. But there is a double standard inherent in those questions. First, the Catholic apologist seems to be saying that those problems do not exist in the Catholic church. Svendsen argues, correctly, that the Catholic church must answer the same questions. Second, it is assumed that your judgment is fallible, but the church's is not. This is a circular argument from the church's authority, which it has because it is infallible. Svendsen hopes that by understanding this, people will be able to effectively answer the "how do you know" questions, and not be drawn away from their evangelical beliefs.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A great help to counter the epistemological confusion . . .   Apr 18, 2008
. . . of roman catholic apologists. Lays out a clear case for why rome's claims to authority must be rejected.
Right On  Feb 4, 2004
Being a former Roman Catholic myself, I found this book very helpfull. The previous review was 100% correct.Well written, and to the point. It does what it says it's gonna do.

It tends to deal with logic which is a interesting aproach, but effective.

Answers demolish the arguments forwarded by the Roman Catholic Church.

Short and sweet  Jul 13, 2003
"There's a new breed of apologists on the internet. They're very aggressive. They are out to undermine your evangelical faith... for they are Catholic." So reads the blurb on the back of this short (76 pages) book.

It is written in a really easy to read style, with scenarios that the author has found himself in and having to deal with. He deals with various questions specifically relating to Rome's claims to authority. He does so with logic rather than with facts, showing for example that the RC position that it is wrong to make our own private interpretation about spiritual matters and that we should instead to listen to the authority of Rome, requires a person to use their own personal and private judgement, which is the very thing they are not meant to do.

It is this sort of argument that he goes in for, highlighting the logical problems with a number of these arguments. He also deals with the frequently quoted statistic that there are 25,000 Protestant denominations, and shows how wrong and misleading that figure is.

It is a useful book to have read if you find yourself in conversation with Catholics who are dogmatic about the authority of Rome.
