More > Christianity have the power . . . of receiving, without intrinsic change, the increasing complexity of meaning which increasing knowledge puts into them" ("God in the Dock," Eerdmans, Grand Rapids, MI, 1970, 44-47). Doctrine clearly develops within Scripture ("progressive revelation"). Examples: doctrines of the afterlife, the Trinity, the Messiah (eventually revealed as God the Son), the Holy Spirit (Divine Person in the New Testament), the equality of Jews and Gentiles, bodily resurrection, sacrifice of lambs evolving into the sacrifice of Christ, etc. This book serves as an introduction to the notion of doctrinal development, written from a popular lay apologetics standpoint.< Less

Pope Francis Explained: Survey of Myths, Legends, and Catholic Defenses in Harmony with Tradition By Dave Armstrong

It seems that everyone wants to make the pope into their own image. Those outside the Church want him to be so-called “progressive” and are more than willing to project this attribute... More > onto him, in a huge campaign of wishful thinking. But radical Catholic reactionaries, on the extreme right on the Catholic ecclesiological spectrum, become alarmed that the Church is compromising itself. A third group of obedient orthodox Catholics understand the pope's role and the nature and status of Catholic dogmas (which do not change), yet are confused by something a new pope says or does. Their concern is harmony with the existing tradition. For each “controversy” or supposed “scandal” or thing that Pope Francis said or did that has people in a confused state, I will attempt to show that the pope is in complete harmony with Catholic tradition. My hope and prayer is that my efforts will lessen the confusion of those who are sincerely seeking what the pope intends and means.< Less

I presuppose the inspiration and infallibility of the Bible, and this book is... More > for Christians who accept those notions. This volume provides Bible passages (usually one verse; sometimes a few together) that are (in my opinion) the very best “answers” to a large number of one-sentence questions. The format might remind one of the popular TV game show "Jeopardy," where the contestants are given a piece of information and have to come up with a question that it is the “answer” to. While compiling it, I looked at Bible passages and devised questions that the passages “answered”. The book contains 18 broad categories and 200 numbered subcategories. The marvelous treasures in the Bible await all of us: inspired revelation from the Mind of God.< Less

It may surprise some to learn that Catholics, like Protestants, embrace Grace Alone and reject Pelagianism and also semi-Pelagianism. The overwhelming theme is the biblical evidence for Catholic soteriological positions. To that end, there are 379 biblical passages fully written out (RSV), for the convenience of the reader. The final 115 pages (out of 187): chapters 10 through 16, are devoted specifically to a critique of Calvinism (or self-described "Reformed" theology) and its beliefs with regard to the five points of what is known as "TULIP" (total depravity, unconditional election, limited atonement, irresistible grace, and perseverance of the saints).< Less
