      So why is this important? Because it means that these Protestants aren’t just saying, “I think Jesus’ words at the Last Supper are meant to be merely symbolic,” but “I think that the entire Church misunderstood one of the most basic aspects of Christianity for centuries.” Call this the “everybody got the gospel wrong” position.   Buy No Grounds for Divorce: Why Protestants (and Everyone Else) Should Return to the Unity of the Catholic Church by Mark Hausam (eBook) online at Lulu.

    A Protestant Bible is a Christian Bible whose translation or revision was produced by Bibles comprise 39 books of the Old Testament (according to the Jewish Hebrew Bible canon, known especially to non-Protestants as the protocanonical books) and 27 books of the New Testament for a total of 66 books. Some Protestants use Bibles which also include 14 additional books in a. The most recent book from the prolific Dr. Peter Kreeft, titled Catholics and Protestants: What Can We Learn From Each Other? (Ignatius Press, ), is a frank and engaging examination of the.

      We can agree that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior, and that salvation is through Him alone. We can agree that salvation is by grace. We can agree that the Scriptures are authoritative and God-breathed. Protestants are considered our “brethren in the Lord” precisely because of our fairly substantial common ground. These were major tenets of Catholicism that were rejected by 16th century Protestants. In his book Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer, published posthumously in , Lewis gives a fictional friend advice about the spiritual life, and it’s in Letter 20 that we find his surprising words about Purgatory.

Nate Pickowicz beautifully summarizes the spirit of the Reformers in his most recent book, Why We’re Protestant: An Introduction to the Five Solas of the Reformation.

First, the author clearly describes the “gospel crisis” that emerged in the sixteenth century. The crisis involves a fundamental disagreement on how sinners are justified/5(55). Nate Pickowicz’s “Why We’re Protestant” is an excellent primer on the Reformation and its five Solas.

The book addresses a crucial question asked and answered during the Reformation: “How does a person get right with God?” For the Roman Catholic Church, sinners get saved by faithfully adhering to the doctrine of the Catholic Church/5. > Why did the Protestants delete some books from the Catholic Bible.

They didn't delete anything. They just assigned a different status to some of the books. The Old Testament books they disagree with are called by Catholics deuterocanonical—the.

A learned, lively look at the various faiths lumped together as Protestant, from Martin Luther in the 16th century to today.

Theologian and professor Ryrie (History of Christianity/Durham Univ.; Being Protestant in Reformation Britain,etc.) takes an inclusive view of the term Protestantism, encompassing mainstream Lutherans, Methodists, Presbyterians, Congregationalists, and Baptists as.

"This is a book of breathtaking range and penetrating insight. It will shape our perception of the Reformation and its long shadow for years to come." - Andrew Pettegree, author of Brand Luther “A book about Protestants could so easily mirror crude stereotypes.

Protestants are supposedly staid, prudish, law-abiding and dull/5(90). What I wonder is if Protestants are in the process of updating their thinking in light of findings contained in the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Only two or three of the Deuterocanon were found in the DSS, compared to every book from the Hebrew Bible (except for Esther). Why, why, why.

Rather than view these questions as an attack, I like to think of them as opportunities to share the "Good News". In his new book, Why We're Catholic, Trent Horn gives you the insight to answer the difficult questions and truly make a difference in the lives of others.

Why there are so many more female than male Protestants is a deep question. There’s certainly a commitment to the spiritual equality of the sexes which goes right back to the sixteenth and.

We are called "Protestants" because at one time we were "protesting" against the Roman Catholic Church, which lead to the Reformation. The name stuck even though the. We already wrote an explainer about mainline Protestants.

But, why is one religious category based on race and not just their religious beliefs. Well, it’s a little complicated.

A terrific book on this is Blacks and Whites in Christian America by Shelton and Emerson. In it, they argue that black Protestants are very similar to white. Furthermore no book of the Apocrypha is mentioned by name in the New Testament.

There Are Others Books Directly Quoted Apart From Apocrypha Add to this, there are certain books that both Protestants and the Roman Catholic Church reject as Scripture that are actually cited in the New Testament. Jude cites the apocryphal book of Enoch. Dr. Barber: Yeah, and you’ll actually see them in other Protestant translations–there are there debates among Protestants about, you know, this–in fact, what’s really interesting is, one of the arguments that the rabbis used for not including these books in the Canon later on was, “Well, we don’t have Hebrew copies of these books.

Gary Michuta is an expert on the canon of Scripture, especially in regards to the Deutero-canonical books, what the Protestants call the Apocrypha. You can read his book Why Catholic Bibles Are Bigger to see what I mean. Recently a friend asked Gary for the short answer as to why the Protestants removed seven books from the Bible.

After this, we have the issue that Canon, as in "which books are the inspired Word of God" is never defined within the Bible. The Church defined these, and the protestants removed 7 books, but protestants have no basis on which to say "this book is canon".

Secondly. Why Protestants Don't Pray to Mary (A Brief History of Prayer to Mary) By: Philip Schaff. Excerpted from: "History of the Christian Church": Volume III, Nicene and Post-Nicene Christianity, A.D. Chapter VII, P. (§ ) (Edited for Length) Related Pages: Why Protestants Don't Pray to Saints.

Why We’re Catholic assembles the clearest, friendliest, most helpful answers that Trent learned to give to all these people and more. Beginning with how we can know reality and ending with our hope of eternal life, it’s the perfect way to help skeptics and seekers (or Catholics who want to firm up their faith) understand the evidence that 5/5(7).

For those who deny that the Bible is a Catholic Book, the founder of Protestantism, Martin Luther, concurred that the Bible is indeed a Catholic Book. He had this to say: "We are compelled to concede to the Papists that they have the Word of GOD, that we received it from them, and that without them, we should have no knowledge of it at all.".

In Why We’re Polarized, Klein reveals the structural and psychological forces behind America’s descent into division and dysfunction. Neither a polemic nor a lament, this book offers a clear framework for understanding everything from Trump’s rise to the Democratic Party’s leftward shift to the politicization of everyday culture.

The First and Second Books of Maccabees contain the most detailed accounts of the battles of Judah Maccabee and his brothers for the liberation of Judea from foreign domination. These books include within them the earliest references to the story of Hanukkah and the rededication of the Temple, in addition to the famous story of the mother and her seven : Rachael Turkienicz.

Why is it that most non-catholics (protestants) hate the Catholic Church. Every time someone knocks on my door, the first thing out of their mouths is something bad about the Catholic Church. I have a co-worker who, every time he sees me at work, he starts talking about the Catholic Church and how the Catholic teachings are not correct.

I like hearing him because every time he tells. Luther didn't remove any books, actually. Since the full Canon was not officially affirmed by Catholics until Trent, neither did Protestants. It could, very easily, be argued that the Protestant Canon is much more consistent in regards to why the various books are Canonical such as that all the pre-Christian books were originally written in Hebrew but, quite honestly, I've never understood why.But Protestants didn't just take out books; they used a different standard of what should be in the Bible.

The Hebrew Bible has 24 books. This list, or "canon," was affirmed at the Councils of Author: Elesha Coffman.The Protestant Personal Opinion Error: Why are there now at le different Protestant sects in the world today?

The answer to that question can be found in Holy Scripture: "You shall not do as we are now doing; here, everyone does what seems right to himself " Deuteronomya verse ignored by Protestants since they do these things.
