Truly an easy read, though it touches on the deepest doctrines of Orthodoxy, it's incredibly informative...

I bought "The Truth - What Every Roman Catholic Should Know about the Orthodox Church" also by the same author yesterday. Amazing read. Helps me.

Just my personal opinion here, but I always thought Clark Carlton to be a bit rough around the edges. Of course I'm comparing him to Bishop Ware and others who are a bit "softer" in their approach to the East/West rupture. Though he did write those quite some time ago and so I'm sure his style has changed as his wisdom has increased. I really liked his podcast on "The Christ Haunted South" though. (available at AFR: http://ancientfaith.com/podcasts/carlton/P21/

Well mate, the titles in question are about 9 - 10 years old. He would have changed by then. I'm aware of the hostility but I try to read with an open mind. I do have Metropolitan Ware's books as well by the way.

Gwenyfur,

Have you visited Ancient Faith Radio before? Here is the link if you've never visited: http://ancientfaith.com/ .

There are number of podcasts by different folks, all of which I find to be very edifying.

In Christ,
Aaron

It would be my prayer that Mr. Carlton has changed. His book, The Truth, I found to be very hostile to the Catholic Church.

However, given what he has said concerning the filioque, purgatory, and Scott Hahn, I would have to agree with him. However, I find his style of apologetics no different than that of a anti-Catholic Protestant.

His assessment of Dr. Scott Hahn is ridiculously over the top. I find that Clark Carlton comes across as pompous and abrasive, which makes him a perfect candidate for publishing through Regina Orthodox Press (Frank Schaeffer's outfit.)

Some Orthodox apologetic books can be "uncharitable". Among Catholic apologists, I'd still choose Alan Schreck over anyone else.

I am sure the same can be claimed by many Orthodox vis-a-vis certain Catholic apologists. Considering the author's background and that he was a fresh convert nothing surprises me in the book.

The Faith didn't really do a lot of comparing between faiths...it wasn't apologetic in nature...but it was educational in some Orthodox views that I hadn't quite wrapped my mind completely around yet...
