In this series, Dr. R.C. Sproul carefully and respectfully looks at the doctrines that are at the heart of the Catholic-Protestant divide.

An excellent overview and insight into the fundamental issues and their origins that explain why Roman Catholicism differs so profoundly from Reformed/Protestantism yet to many these differences can appear superficial.
A very helpful and objective review for someone ignorant of the beliefs and theology of the RC church.
"Great explaination of theology"
Yes I would recommend this to anyone interested in the study of why Catholic Church does the things that they do. It is fair, open minded, and not condemning of even the themes that the author disagrees with. I truly enjoy the non-judgemental way of presentation.
Mr. Sproul brings a huge amount of great theology, and thorough knowledge of Biblical themes, and Catholic practices. He also brings a very deep knowledge of the history of the church in general, and the catholic church in particular.
"a protestant's view of the sacraments"
as a Catholic, a fresh perspective
the comments on the deposit of faith
not necessarily, but I did finish it quickly
not sure that he was accurate on all counts, but clearly has studied the topic from a protestant perspective
"My heart hurts"
My heart hurts over the misled congregation of this institution. While the church urges you not to do so on your own, I would have anyone of the Catholic faith who desires God's assurance to carefully read chapters 17 and 18 of Revelation. May God reveal to you what He has to many concerning the city of Rome and the institution of the Catholic Church. "Children come out of her."
"As a Catholic, I found it hurtful and offensive"
I found the wording and phrasing of the lectures to be hurtful and offensive as a Roman Catholic. He makes the Church sound ugly, archaic and wrong. I expected a more factual, unbiased discussion of the differences between the Catholic and Protestant canons.
The recording was very bad and the volume changes throughout the lecture series.
"Catholics are blind"
This information is well organized and presented. Many Catholics do not know their own religion.
