    1. This book’s title is misleading: it seems to suggest that the authors answer in the affirmative and suggest everyone return to Father Pope and Mother Mary. That is not what they argue, however. They trace American evangelicalism’s opinion and political reaction to Roman Catholicism from the Puritan era until the present day. Much attention is given to Vatican II, the Catholic Catechism, and the various Evangelical and Catholics Together (ECT) statements. Some final thoughts will be why evang [...]


    2. This is a compelling analysis of Roman Catholicism through an evangelical Protestant perspective. While the authors acknowledge that the various strands of Protestantism make a unified assessment difficult (for instance, Anglicans will be more accepting of Catholic ecclesiology and liturgy than Pentecostals, Pentecostals tend to be more open to the supernatural, charismatic element of Catholicism than Anglicans), they do an excellent job of appreciating the nuances of Protestant thought in relat [...]


    3. Very academic book regarding the relationship between Roman Catholics and Protestants. Noll was very objective in his thinking and presented historical facts pertaining to both sides in a scholarly way. So is the Reformation over? I have no idea! This was my first book on the subject so I need to read some more!


    4. It will be interesting to see how people respond to this book. It is irenic, charitable, hopeful, and encouraging in its description of the fruitful dialogues which have taken place and continue to take place between evangelicals and Catholics, particularly since Vatican II. Noll is an historian, so you will be disappointed if you read this searching for biblical exegesis. But taken for what it is, there are some extraordinary reflections. Their analysis of the political and social factors affec [...]


    5. Though parts of this book might seem tedious, its message and purpose are profound. I never know whether something that I read is moving to me based on previous reading or based on itself alone. This seems a necessary statement in the case of this excellent book. Instead of a long analysis of the book���s pros and con, I will quote a piece of its summary. For those who get the allusion, it will be a strong lure to read the book and explore its timely message:��� Not so very long ago [...]


    6. Not bad, the chapters on the Catechism of the Catholic Church and what Catholics believed made reading this worth it. There were chapters covering the relations of the Church and the civil-authority that were excellent, and then there were chapters I felt were a waste of paper.Of note was that the Catholics predicted in the early 1800s and late 1700s that American and French experiments in democracy would lead to a godless state, which I found interesting. Also of note was Catholic antagonism to [...]


    7. Short Review - I very much like Mark Noll as an author. I have read very little by him that is not worth reading. Even the dull parts (in this case the recounting of the various discussions between Catholics and different Protestant denominations) are important. If you are interested in the real differences between Catholics and Protestants, this is a valuable book. My longer review is on my blog at bookwi/is-the-reformation-o


    8. A compelling examination of the relationship between Roman Catholicism and Protestantism from the Evangelical perspective. My favorite chapter by far was five, with Noll's review of the Catholic Catechism.



    9. Much to think about but you have to like reading history and care about what you are reading. Great discussion starter.
