It has become clear that this work by Geisler and Betancourt is not a serious exegetical or historical examination of Roman Catholicism. At best it is a popular level diatribe which merely copies poor Protestant polemical (mis)understandings of both Catholic doctrine and suffers from severe selective misrepresentation of both the patristic evidence and Catholic decrees and theologians of the past. This work does not progress the discussion of Catholic shortcomings at all by not seriously engaging (any) secondary literature of decades on ecumenical dialogue by some of the best and brightest thinkers on both sides of the issues.
Is Rome the True Church? Stands as a classic example of how not to examine a theological system by not doing your homework, merely restating popular misconceptions, misrepresentation and selective citing. If such a paper such as this would be presented at any serious scientific peer reviewed journal or academy it would be laughed at or more likely not given the chance to be presented at all, an apologetical diatribe written by amateurs in the field they are supposed to be critiquing.
This post concludes my review of this book.
