(3 reviews) Write a Review


Separated at Baptism

How did Protestant Christianity begin and spread?

What are the distinctive beliefs of Protestantism, and how do they differ from Catholic teaching?

How do “non-denominational Bible churches” compare with the “mainline” branches of Protestantism?

Why are some Protestant groups anti-Catholic, and what can I do to foster better relations with them and help them understand Catholicism?

Since the Reformation, Christianity has been split into many competing groups, each differing from the others but almost all claiming to represent the authentic gospel of Jesus Christ. How did that happen? And how can we better understand—and work to heal—those divisions? 20 Answers: Protestantism gives you a perfect beginner’s guide to the historical roots of Protestantism, its liturgical and doctrinal flavors, and its impact on the evolution of global (and especially American) Christian culture. Most of all, it offers proven advice for finding common ground with Protestants while sharing your own Catholic faith.

The 20 Answers series from Catholic Answers offers hard facts, compelling arguments, and clear explanations of the most important topics facing the Church and the world—all in a compact, easy-to-read package.

    A great synopsis to understanding Protestantism, its history and the unfortunate damage it has created on the true faith. Definitively recommend it. Just wish it also came in a podcast/audible version.

    As a Catholic surrounded by Protestants, I found this booklet very helpful in understanding at least a basic amount about the different Protestant denominations. Jimmy Akin is always very clear and to the point when he writes and presents facts in a truthful and charitable way. I am going to try and find more information on this topic!

    Protestantism 20 Questions

    Posted by Bruce Ryman on Feb 24th 2022

    As part of our parish R.C.I.A. process I teach a session on the Reformation and Counter Reformation. There is so much content to cover that I provide all the Candidates and Catechumens with this booklet for them to keep in their personal libraries. The folks really like having it available for answering future questions of theirs or others.
