Stunned By Scripture: How the Bible Made Me Catholic

(2 reviews) Write a Review


The Pope, devotion to Mary, confession ... just where are these topics in the Bible? Why does the Catholic Church seem to focus on so many things that aren t Scriptural?

Or so thought former Protestant pastor John Bergsma.

Stunned by Scripture: How the Bible Made Me Catholic is an engaging examination of the things Dr. Bergsma once considered obstacles to ever becoming Catholic himself. Over an eighteen-month spiritual journey, Bergsma was stunned again and again by the biblical support he found for even the stickiest teachings of the Catholic Church.

Weaving his personal story into clear explanations of Catholic teachings as found in Scripture, Dr. Bergsma explores seven key Catholic doctrines, including:

    • The Pope
    • Devotion to Mary
    • Confession
    • The Eucharist
    • The priesthood
    • Belief in the Bible alone
    • Salvation by faith alone theologies

    Both of my daughters who were very skeptical of me returning to the Catholic Faith are now seriously considering it. Both are non-denominational Protestants.
