Official documents from the Second Vatican Council show that Rome wants to bring all Christians back into the Catholic Church. The goal of ecumenism is to reverse the Protestant Reformation. In today's ecumenical world, Evangelicals need to understand what Catholicism is and how easily it mixes with non-Christian religions. That's why Catholic Concerns was written. Evangelical pastors are promoting Catholic mysticism and contemplative prayer. But where does it lead? At the end of this road, we find Catholic monks who want to be good Buddhists, and Catholic priests who act like gurus, wear orange robes, call Hindu temples a "sacrament" and consider non-Christians to be their brothers and sisters in Christ. Catholic Concerns reveals what is hiding behind Rome's modern, ecumenical image. It presents complex subjects in a clear, straightforward manner that is easy to understand. It confronts troubling issues with compassion and objectivity. Come explore the world of Catholicism, where grace can be "merited" and Mary has a "saving office" (The Catholic Church teaches that Mary's intercession brings salvation).
