LORAINE BOETTNER PDF

He as a Protestant could gain by learning a thing or two from someone who dealt with a similar topic but ended up on the other side of the fence; John Henry Newman was much more fair. He presented the best case for the views he disagreed with before trying to show their flaws. Boettner never aims to be fair, never seeks understanding, and only seeks to convince. I would have gained much more from a more thorough book that helped present Catholicism as Roman Catholics see it, and then attempted to show the shortcomings of that faith.

He as a Protestant could gain by learning a thing or two from someone who dealt with a similar topic but ended up on the other side of the fence; John Henry Newman was much more fair.

He presented the best case for the views he disagreed with before trying to show their flaws. Boettner never aims to be fair, never seeks understanding, and only seeks to convince.

I would have gained much more from a more thorough book that helped present Catholicism as Roman Catholics see it, and then attempted to show the shortcomings of that faith. One feels one is reading a two-page anti-Catholic tract that is expanded to pages, not a scholarly analysis. Boettner rarely deals with primary sources, provides no footnotes to document sources, and shows very little love for those he sees as guilty of error and idolatry.

And his fear of the RCC perhaps explains his strategy; he sees this church as being as dangerous to the US as Communism in that same period 50s and 60s.

This is not to say the book is without strengths. He points out doctrinal issues that Catholics might have a hard time defending successfully or at least succinctly and convincingly. But the lack of fairness over and over again made me unwilling to trust what he wrote. On the one hand Catholics are not anti-communist enough, and on the other hand they are working hand in hand with Franco in Spain.

Well, had they opposed Franco, this would only have convinced Boettner further of the way Catholics fail to oppose Communism. It carries a very strong American perspective which also weakens it. Free markets in religion are good for religion as free markets for consumers are good for economics. And the proof of the truthfulness of Protestantism is in how wealthy and prosperous the US and northern Europe were - but I would think Jesus would put little stock in that sort of argument and condemn the prosperous Protestant nations for not doing more for their poorer neighbours.

The entire perspective seems old-fashioned and a bit out of keeping with a true catholic little "c" Christianity. I am glad to have gained some insights by having read the book, but even gladder to have it finished and behind me. Lacking in scholarship and lacking in love, the book ends up not being very convincing. They were concerned that I was being befriended by an older Catholic girl.

I read it with great interest, taking every point as true. It was the first theological book I had ever read and set the tone for my early and immature theological fervor. Years later, I had the chance as a young adult to discuss Catholicism with other adults.

My youthful confidence that I had a solid understanding of Catholic theology was quickly dashed.
