Book Overview

Chris Castaldo takes readers on a fascinating and practical exploration of the challenges and opportunities encountered by Catholics who become Evangelicals. More than just theological insight and historical background, Holy Ground shows you how to emulate the grace and truth of Jesus as you relate to your own Catholic past and the Catholic faith of those you love.

‘This is the best book I have read that chronicles such pilgrimages. And it is full of godly commonsense.’ —D. A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School ‘A refreshing change…[Castaldo] shows respect for the tradition from which he departed’ —Francis J. Beckwith, Professor of Philosophy and Church-State Studies, Baylor University. Author of Return to Rome: Confessions of an Evangelical Catholic. ‘Very important [and] very helpful!’ —J.I. Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College Do you dread conversation at Christmas dinner with your Catholic family At weddings, funerals, and holidays Chris Castaldo has wrestled personally with this question and many more. Perhaps you have too. Whether you are a former Roman Catholic or know someone who is, you’ll find helpful answers and encouraging support within these pages. Like: how can Evangelicals and Catholics reach such different conclusions from the same Scripture When I talk about my faith with my Catholic family, why does someone always get upset How does my Catholic background still influence my views of God and salvation And how should I talk with my Catholic friends about Jesus More than providing historical perspective, theological reflection, and practical lessons, Holy Ground is a dynamic exploration of how to emulate both the grace and truth of the Lord Jesus Christ in relation to the Catholic people you love.
