Catholicism officially teaches, this book helps to clarify the
The Faith of the Vatican
(Herbert Carson) [Evangelical Press]
This book "examines afresh the official teaching of the R.C. Church,
as set out in some of its most recent publications, ... [and]
traditional teachings are examined in the light of Scripture."
Answer to My
Catholic Friends (Thomas F. Heinze) [Chick
"[T]here are certain things that Roman Catholics would like
to know about the ... Bible. Moreover they want clear, unevasive
answers. The ecumenical movement in their own church has made it
more important than ever for them to have this information. If you
are a Roman Catholic, read on. You will find some of the answers
(Loraine Boettner) [The Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing
This author "contrasts
evangelical Protestant and Roman Catholic doctrines, as well as the
practical effects these two systems have had in people's lives..."
the First Pope? (Dr. Robert L. Moyer) [Sword of the
"The Roman Catholic Church teachers that Peter was the first
pope. Is there any truth to this belief? In this study, the author
compares the teachings and doctrines of Catholicism with those of
Is the Papacy
Predicted by St. Paul: An Inquiry (Christopher Wordsworth)

booklet explaining the papacy from a spiritual, biblical
perspective. An absolute 'must read'.
The Reformation / The Jesuits / Ecumenism and Interfaith / Political
Church History (S.M. Houghton) [Banner of Truth
Few Christians "know the
spiritual history which lies behind the present day." The author
seeks to show how "church history ought to provide a standard of
comparison, raise our vision of God, and what faithfulness to Christ
The Church of Rome
at the Bar of History (William Webster) [Banner of
"In all the confusion of the
contemporary religious scene, one Church claims to abide changeless
in her message and authority. From the first, and through the ages,
she claims to stand by one faith. ... But, ... is this true? [This
book] answers the question not be debating texts of Scripture but by
a straight appeal to ... the facts of history..."
Did the Catholic
Church Give Us the Bible? (David W. Daniels) [Chick

Bible, but two... This marvellous book will be a wild ride and an

[in this book] made simple with down-to-earth explanations backed by
The Reformation in
England - Vols 1 and 2 (J.H. Merle d'Aubigne)

This authors history "is
outstanding in that it combines a dependable accuracy with a
narrative so vivid that the author irresistibly communicates his own
passionate interest in the events he is portraying..."
John Wycliffe: The
Dawn of the Reformation (David Fountain) [Mayflower
"The contribution that John
Wycliffe made to the Reformation in England and to the special
character of English Protestantism was immense, and the author
brings this out in the most effective and helpful way. ... This book
will ... encourage us to remember ... firstly, that the truth of God
is the same. ... Secondly, the opposition of the world is the same.
... Thirdly, the
errors that arise in the church are the same..."
Foxe's Book of
Martyrs (John Foxe)
"In his honest and
compassionate accounts of man's search for spiritual truth, and the
persecution and death that accompanied that search, John Foxe etched
a detailed picture of the English Reformation that would have
otherwise remained unknown." This book is essential reading, but
please beware it is extremely disturbing in places.
Reformers (J.C. Ryle) [Banner of Truth Trust]
""Why were such men burned at the
stake? This book analyses the reasons for their martyrdom and the
salient characteristics of their Christian lives. Readers will rise
from the company of their life-stories praying for a similar faith
in Christ's power."
The Martyrs of
Mary Tudor (Andrew Atherstone) [Day One
"Bishops and labourers, the blind
and lame, men and women, elderly and [children] - none was spared
the fierce persecution of Mary Tudor in her attempt to rid her realm
of all who followed the Protestant faith. There were nearly 300
Christian martyrs during Mary's brief reign; across England and into
Wales are memorials to many of them. The martyrs agony in the often
slow-burning fires, is a heart-rending testimony of firm faith and
strong conviction. Here is the story of a few of those who 'out of
weakness were made strong' ... and of whom 'the world was not
Invincible Refugees (Beth Coombe Harris) [Protestant
"Though fictitious, this story of the Huguenots depicts with much
accuracy this dark time in church history. It is based on many true
incidents and its lively account will thoroughly captivate you while
providing bright examples of faith to be imitated."
Character Studies of the Scottish Covenanters (Jock Purves)
[Banner of Truth Trust]
"There are many volumes which
deal with that terrible yet glorious period in the history of the
Scottish church between the restoration of Charles II and the

very best of them."

"In this remarkable book the
author has packed its pages full of information which ought to be in
the hands of all Englishmen."
Plot: Jesuit Intrigue in Elizabethan England (J.E.C.
Shepherd) [Wittenburg Publications]
This book is an "illuminating
study of a relatively unknown aspect of Jesuit intrigue in 16th
century Britain. It is a must for those who want to truly understand
the struggle which led to the eventual death of Mary, Queen of
Scots, and the infamous part which the Jesuits played in this potent
time in the history of Protestantism."
and Plot: The Gruesome Story of Guy Fawkes (Clive
Anderson) [Day One Publications]
"If the plot had succeeded, then
the history of England, Europe and the rest of the world would have
been very different..." The author "puts the plot in its broad
historical and theological context. Here is an excellent
introduction to Reformation history and theology through the lens of
this historical episode..."

Protestant Council on 1st November 1997.

Rome?: The Ecumenical Movement (Michael de Semlyen)
[Dorchester House Publications]

Barriers (Bill Randles) [St Matthew Publishing]

in the Temple: The Hidden Agenda of the Ecumenical Movement
(Alan Morrison) [Rushworth Literature Ltd.]

denominations and organisations into a universal conglomerate." This

This book seeks to provide "a
framework for assessing Roman Catholicism, contemporary
evangelicalism, and the ECT document..."
Forgotten... (R. E. Palgrave)
[Unity in Truth Literature]
"In discussions with the younger generation of Christians, it
is clear that the vast majority lack an understanding of the beliefs
and aims of the Roman Catholic Church and the dangers of the
Ecumenical Movement, ... Furthermore it is apparent that younger
ministers believe that the threat of the Ecumenical Movement has
completely disappeared and hence see no reason to educate their
people in these matters. Sadly, it can indeed be said that 'My
people are destroyed for lack of knowledge'..."
Separation (John E. Ashbrook) [Here I Stand
"My title, Axioms of Separation, mixes metaphors. I have
heard that is not good. 'Axioms' comes from geometry and
'separation' comes from theology. ... an axiom is a self-evident
truth, like 'things equal to the same thing are equal to each
other'. It is my thesis in this booklet that, in the realm of
separation, there are a number of self-evident truths. I would like
to have you follow me through your Bible as I seek to set forth some
axioms of separation..."
the Court of King Ahab (Peter Trumper) [VPIF
"In 1549, during the reign of Edward VI, Archbishop Cranmer ordained
that the story of Jehoshaphat's disgraceful and disastrous alliance
with Ahab should be read at morning service once every year, and so
it was for 450 years. The story is not often expounded today
but nevertheless is very important. It describes how an
outstandingly good king, Jehoshaphat, enjoyed God's blessing and
then spoilt it all by compromise. ... Mr Trumper's masterly
exposition of the passage, tracing the roots and consequences of
Jehoshaphat's actions and its lessons for the ecumenical and
interfaith movements and indeed for all who are tempted to
compromise with evil, makes most instructive reading" [review in
British Church Newspaper].
Movement: The New Age Enters the Church (Herbert J.
Pollitt) [Banner of Truth Trust]
"Inter-Faith is one of the most
influential religious movements in the present world scene. ...
academic theologians, [and] leaders of main-line denominations ...
agree that [all] religions all express an identical transcendence.
All lead to the knowledge of God, and therefore all are possessed of
a common unity. [This author] believes that the Inter-Faith movement
only gains credence by ignoring two great facts:..."
Vatican's Holocaust (Avro Manhattan) [Ozark Books]
Exposes the true spirit behind Rome as manifested by the Catholic
Ustashi during WWII. Please be warned that the activities of
Romanists described in this book are distressing in the extreme.
and the European Union (Richard Bennett & Michael de
Semlyen) [Dorchester House Publications]
"Papal Rome is widely respected and admired by the world. She
is seen as well organised, successful and influential, as well as
dignified and authoritative. The aura of uncritical acclaim around
the person of successive popes is unique to the Church of Rome. No
other global institution has it. Her pronouncements on moral issues
carry great weight." This is an excellent and concise study of
the Vatican's position and role in the development of the European
and Power of Europe: Britain and the Emerging Holy Roman Empire
(Adrian Hilton) [Dorchester House Publications]
Amongst many very important
facets of the European Union, the author looks "the role of the
Vatican and the political nature of the papacy and the potential
consequences for evangelical Christians of a [Roman inspired]
European parliamentary directive on cults and sects."
The Two Babylons
(Alexander Hislop) [Loizeaux Brothers]
This book "is one of the great books in the Christian literature of
apologetics. ... the author demonstrates that almost all of the
practices of Roman Catholicism have been brought over from
the Great (L.A. Sadler) [Published by the author]
A very clear and valuable
explanation of Rome's roots. Gives the essence of much of Hislop in
a very attractive style. Goes on to reveal the true extent of her
involvement in preparing the way - spiritually and politically - for
Rome, Babylon the
Great, and Europe (Bob Mitchell) [Shofar Ministries]
A wonderful book. The author
gives a succinct history of the Roman Church from the visions of
Nebuchadnezzar right through to her part in the coming New World
Order. Extremely easy to read.
A Woman Rides the
Beast (Dave Hunt) [Harvest House Publishers]
"The author sifts through
Biblical truth and global events to present a well-defined portrait
of the woman and her powerful place in the Antichrist's future
empire. Eight remarkable clues in Revelation 17 and 18 prove the
woman's identity beyond any reasonable doubt."
