The author uses his own faith history to illustrate a larger point about diversity in practice of faith amongst Catholics. Schaetzel was an Evangelical Protestant and a high church Anglican before “swimming the Tiber”. But the Catholic Church is made up of 23 different rites (though technically Churches) and the Roman Church is the largest among them but all are united in faith.
Most of Catholicism for Protestants is structured in a question and answer format which is eminently readable. This cradle Catholic was able to finish the short 100 page book in one sitting.
Schaetzel does try to answer many common questions Evangelical Protestants have about the Catholic faith. This sort of apologetic can be challenging as Evangelicals come from a non-sacramental, non-liturgical and non-ritualistic practice of faith so Catholicism’s practices and even its vocabulary can be confusing. While Schaetzel’s scholarship is evident in the presentation and the supplemental footnotes, his prose does not get bogged down by too much high church jargon.
Alas, at times Schaetzel’s playful but plain spoken prose muddies matters. But by the same token, such punchy prose can also break down barriers, as Schaetzel was able to do by comparing papal infallability to simple math equations that are also “totally correct and being without error”.
Shane Schaetzel’s Catholicism for Protestants will not only offer a clear Catechism but will also give the chapter and verse citations which sola scriptura Christians tend to seek.
Catholic Christian faith, and was a great refresher course for me too. It's very
thorough and yet simple and easy to read. Each question and answer is backed up
with Scripture and Catechism references, along with references to the Church
Fathers. The author covers all the basics: Mary, the Saints, the Bible, the
Eucharist, all of it. I highly recommend it!!!
