Many of us have Roman Catholic friends and relatives, or are Catholic ourselves or come from a Roman Catholic background. Despite our significant exposure to Catholicism, the truth is we know very little about it. The world of Roman Catholic theology and practice is vast and intimidating and it is difficult to know where to start in order to understand it better. As a result we struggle to know how to engage our loved ones on the subject and have a hard time articulating the differences between Roman Catholicism and Protestantism. Are the differences really that significant, or do we just believe two versions of basically the same thing? The Reformanda Initiative exists to help you answer these questions and provide valuable resources in doing so. This course on contemporary Roman Catholicism will help you better understand Roman Catholic theology and practice and will equip you with knowledge that will help you better engage your Catholic loved ones with the Good News of Jesus Christ.

*Students at Southern Seminary must register for course 28140 - Contemporary Roman Catholic Theology with Gregg Allison on in addition to this event.
