Since its publication in 1962 this informative volume has established itself as a classic treatment of traditional Roman Catholicism.
Dr. Boettner contrasts evangelical Protestant and Roman Catholic doctrines, as well as the practical effects of these two systems in people's lives. With constant reference to scriptural teaching, Boettner shows that Protestantism was not a new system to arise during the Reformation, but a return to New Testament Christianity and the simplicity of the apostolic church.
Some of the major subjects Boettner discusses are: The Church, The Priesthood, Tradition, Peter, The Papacy, Mary, The Mass, The Confessional, Purgatory, The Infallibility of the Pope, Penance, Indulgences, Salvation by Grace, Ritualism, Celibacy, Marriage, and Contrasting Moral Standards.
Although there have been a number of changes in the Roman Catholic Church since the volume first appeared, Boettner's classic work remains a valuable non-technical resource for understanding historic Roman Catholicism and its major teachings.
Loraine Boettner studied systematic theology under C. W. Hodge at Princeton Theological Seminary, where he earned the Th.B. and Th.M. degrees. He also received an honorary D.D. and a Litt.D. degree.
