Despite a long history of external threats and internal strife, the Roman Catholic Church remains a vast and influential presence in our modern world. But what were its origins, and how has it changed and adapted over the centuries? After Pope Benedict XVI dramatically resigned in early 2013 (the first Pope to resign since the fifteenth century), and Pope Francis was elected, many wondered what direction he would lead the Church in, and whether the Church could modernise in the face of the demands of our world. In this Very Short Introduction, Gerald O'Collins covers the history of the Catholic Church, and considers some of the key issues facing Catholicism today, such as the catastrophic revelations about clerical child abuse, the impact of the growth of Islam, and the destruction in the Middle East of ancient Christian church communities. He also shows how Catholics are being increasingly challenged by an opposition between their traditional Christian values and rights which are endorsed by the secular world, such as the right to physician assisted suicide or same-sex marriage, and considers the future for the largest and oldest institution in the world. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED * What it means to be "born again"? * If Jesus is really present in communion? * If it is okay to go to Mary and the Saints in prayer? * How faith and works are related to salvation? * If the baptism in the Holy Spirit is for real? * What the Catholic Mass is really all about? * Why the Catholic Bible has more books than other Bibles? * If the rules and traditions of the Catholic Church are Scriptural? * What happened century by century in Catholic Church history--and why? * What God has to say about Christian unity? This book answers these questions and many others from the down-to-earth viewpoint of attorney Daniel Wiegand who, after confronting his own questions about Christianity and Catholicism, explored the Bible and became a born again, Bible believing, Spirit filled, Catholic. If you're not familiar with the term "born again," don't worry. This book is definitely Catholic and has received the Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur. If you'd like to be a better informed Catholic, have a greater understanding and appreciation of your faith, get more out of Mass, have a closer relationship with Jesus and the Holy Spirit and be able to respond to those who say the Catholic Church isn't scriptural, read this book. If you have a friend or loved one who has left the Catholic Church, this book may draw them back. If you're a former Catholic or a non-Catholic who has questioned the scriptural basis for Roman Catholicism, this book will benefit you as well. With over 600 Scripture references and quotations the author literally makes the case for Roman Catholicism. WHAT DR. FRANS BRANDT, Ed.D, ABMP SAYS In his Foreword to the book, Dr.Brandt, author of ten books published in several countries, says "Both Catholic and non-Catholic Christians-as well as anyone who has even the slightest interest in the Bible, spirituality, or Church history-will be greatly blessed by reading this book. ...Wiegand has written the kind of book, perhaps even the book, that may play a major role in bringing about greater unity to the body of Christ."

Well-known authors and researchers John Ankerberg, John Weldon, and Dillon Burroughs have updated and revised The Facts on Roman Catholicism, an important title from the popular Facts On Series (more than 1.9 million copies of books from this series sold). Presented in a convenient question-and-answer format, readers are given a general overview and detailed information based on a biblical evaluation of the Roman Catholic Church. They discover similarities and differences between the basic theologies of Catholicism and Protestantism. Topics include: Have the basic doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church changed? What are the sacraments, and how do they function in the life of a Catholic believer? What does the Catholic Church teach concerning salvation? What unique role does Mary have in Roman Catholicism, and is it biblical? Can the differences between Catholics and Evangelicals be set aside?
