This book is, to put it mildly, not a very gentle treatment of its subject. It can be a valuable resource in studying a certain religion, but that religion is not, despite the title, Roman Catholicism. Rather, that religion is the staunchly anti-Roman Protestantism of the author. If you want a look at how Roman Catholicism was perceived by an influential mid-twentieth-century Protestant controversialist, then this is the book for you. ( )

This book is more polemical than carefully reasoned argumentations; for those wishing for a more fair analysis of the Catholic Church I recommend reading the Pius V Catechism, the current Catechism, along with the decrees of the Council of Trent. For a contrary view I suggest an excellent anthology of Martin Luther's basic writings edited by Timothy Lull. ( )

Helpful in understanding Catholicism. However, I have other issues with Boettner. ( )

Dr. Boettner has written an interesting and informative book from the viewpoint of evangelical Protestantism which presents the two systems in strong contrast. The present day Roman Catholic Church is compared with the Church of the first century. Constant reference is made to Scripture teaching, and the material is presented in non-technical language that the average Christian can follow with ease.

This has to be one of the worst books I have ever read. This book highlights Boettner's ignorance. This book is filled with invective and emotional appeals; add to this a a complete lack of real logical argument or appropriate citations, and you have book which is thoroughly misleading. Boettner seems to be on a campaign of how many times he can use the word bigot, or its derivations, with reference to the Roman Catholic Church. This book's only useful purpose is to give one an insight into how Evangelical Protestants think. Apart from that, leave this book alone, especially if you are feeling suicidal. This book might be tolerable if you have time to kill, and can't find anything else which you haven't read ten times. ( )
