Catholicism: East of Eden
By Richard Bennett
Banner of Truth, 2010, 336 pages
In this book, ex-priest, Richard Bennett, provides a charitable but uncompromising critique of Roman Catholicism in comparison to God’s Word. Catholicism claims to be the “one true church” but in each chapter Bennett details how the Catholic church strayed from simple faith in Jesus Christ of early Christianity to institutionalized legalism and ritualism. Bennett’s insights into Catholicism as a former Dominican priest are invaluable.
