Controversy between Evangelicals and Roman Catholics has been constant since the sixteenth century. This series is a venture not in controversy but in dialogue, that is, in the kind of exposition and interchange that enables those on both sides to map in depth the nature and range of their differences, and to see how it is that both bodies of opinion believe themselves to be discerning and obeying God's truth revealed in Christ in those areas where they part company. Topics which are explored include: the church, faith and assurance, priesthood and ministry, the sacramental system, the Eucharist, the place of Mary and canonized saints, purgatory, indulgences, and prayers for the departed and what Evangelicals and Catholics may and should do together. Lectures include:

  • How We Got Here
  • The Church of Christ and Authority
  • The Gospel of Grace and Salvation
  • The Sacramental System and the Eucharist
  • Word, Spirit, Faith, and the Mediation of Grace
  • Personal Eschatology and the Assurance of Heaven
  • Christian Culture: Church and Society
  • The Church Confronts the Community
  • Conversation and Cooperation: Doing Things Together
  • Questions and Answers
