    65. Pope Francis Claims Rome, Italy is a Mission Field

    In this episode we discuss Leonardo’s most recent Vatican File “If the Pope Thinks that Rome is a ‘Mission Field.’” As the title indicates, recently Pope Francis described the city of Rome - which is of course the home of Roman Catholicism and the Vatican - as a mission field. We discuss this claim and its implications from an evangelical perspective.

    62. Understanding Synodality and the Synodal Church

    You cannot talk about Roman Catholicism today without also talking about synodality. The Synodal Church is the new hermeneutic for understanding and engaging Roman Catholicism. To say it is essential is an understatement. But what is it? In this episode, we answer that question.

Thank you for your labor in the Kingdom

We are Protestant and members of a small Presbyterian denomination. One of our children has entered the Dominican novitiate. We heard about this podcast on Reformed Forum and very grateful for your work. On a personal level it is helping navigate a significant event.

Fundamentalism tries to critique Rome

While listening to the episodes about the Holy Mother I noticed our hosts accused Roman church and the church fathers of circular reasoning, yet they produced little evidence of their own. It can simply be reduced to “We’re right just because, and Roman Catholicism is wrong because we said so.”
One question I have is this, what are the bounds of scripture? That’s a very arbitrary standard since their particular brand of Protestantism.
Their view of Mary is not representative of Protestantism. It represents a very recent enlightenment influenced view of Mary. In short, this is pretend scholarly work and class anti-Catholicism.

Need more episodes!!

I love this podcast! It’s very informative and encouraging to me as a former Roman Catholic. You don’t mince words but you’re sensitive at the same time knowing that spreading the Gospel in a dark place is priority. My only critique is that you need more episodes LOL! I check it almost every day awaiting the next one.I recently purchased “Same Words, Different Worlds” and look forward to reading it!
