On the Wings of Grace Alone:
The Testimonies of Thirty Converted
Edited by Richard M. Bennett and Glenn R. Diehl
Denis C. Shelton, a theologian in the Reformed Community in Australia, writes:
“I am pleased to recommend the book “On Wings of Grace Alone. In reading these moving testimonies, the key factors in many of them, which God used to save the individuals and bring them out of Rome, were the Bible and the faithful testimony and lives of genuinely saved Christians. Put this book, then, in the hands of dear Roman Catholics to help them to come to Christ through His Word – and in the hands of Christians to help them to be informed as to how far Catholicism is from Christ and the Scriptures and, therefore how vital is our own witness to Christ by word and life before them.”

Far From Rome, Near to God: Testimonies of 50 Converted Catholic Priests
Then Banner of Truth has published the third edition of Far from Rome, Near to God the Testimonies of Fifty Former Catholic Priests.
This book contains the moving testimonies of fifty priests who found their way, by the grace of God, out of the labyrinth of Roman Catholic theology and practice into the light of the Gospel of Christ. But this is not a narrowly polemical work, nor is its relevance limited to the ongoing controversy between Rome and the churches of the Reformation. The love and concern felt by the former priests for those they left behind, and their fervent desire that they too should experience the joy and peace of salvation in Christ is seen throughout.
The wider relevance of the experiences described will also be felt in many contexts remote from Roman Catholicism, where human pride and presumption have erected rival sources of authority between people and the Word of God, so obscuring the way of salvation by grace alone, through Faith alone, and in Christ alone.

The Truth Set Us Free: Twenty Former Nuns Tell Their Stories of God’s Amazing Grace
Edited by Richard Bennett with Mary Hertel
These women became nuns in Catholic convents as their finest means of serving God. The testimonies are “inside stories,” intensely personal, wonderfully down-to-earth. They ask and finally get the right answers to some of the same questions that you yourself might ask. The solid promise of Holy God in Scripture is, “And ye shall seek Me, and find Me when ye search for Me with all your heart.” This volume is a modern testimony to that living promise. The book will be of avid interest to dedicated Catholics who often do not know the realities of convent life. Also, it with be of great interest to lapsed Catholics who have become discouraged by the practice of a religious faith which has not answered his or her inner emptiness and confusion. Evangelicals who are being drawn more closely into “dialogue” with Catholics, unaware of the inner workings of that huge, seemingly mysterious system, will also be keenly interested.

Evangelical Compromise: Evangelicals and Catholics Together
By Richard Bennett
Evangelical Compromise reviews the ecumenical documents “Evangelicals and Catholics Together” (signed by prominent evangelical and Catholic leaders in 1994) and “The Gift of Salvation” (a joint statement produced in 1997). This booklet presents an important case study regarding cooperative efforts of evangelism and moral influence in society. When do such well-intentioned efforts go astray? What doctrines may be ignored in such efforts? And which ones must be maintained, even to the point of separation from such cooperation? This will help readers discern situations when “doctrine divides” for valid scriptural reasons, and that “love” must never lead to a compromise of biblical truth. When evangelicals and Catholics use the terms grace and justification, they do not mean the same thing at all!
“The Comparison Chart” – Thy Word is Truth
A side by side comparison chart using the official 1994 catechism of the Catholic Church and the Bible. The chart highlights eight major topics of concern and shows the contradictions in Roman Catholic teaching. The article is accompanied by an audio explanation by Richard Bennett.

Catholic Evangelism Tracts
What Every Catholic Should Know
by Richard Bennett.
Every good Catholic wants to please God in this present life and, when life on earth is over, hopes to live with Him forever. It’s a noble goal based on their personal beliefs about God and how they seek to know Him. But noble intentions and personal beliefs about God don’t guarantee results—or eternal life. I urge you to do what I did after 22 years as a Dominican priest—make sure your beliefs have a solid foundation in the Bible.
