Holy Ground: Walking with Jesus as a Former Catholic
by Chris Castaldo
(240 pages, $12.99, paperback)
reviewed by Louis Markos
I must admit that when I first read the subtitle of Chris Castaldo’s book, I was nervous. “Oh no,” I thought, “just when the dialogue between Evangelicals and Catholics was getting both cordial and fruitful, here comes a book to sour the conversation.” Then I turned to the back cover and read a positive endorsement from Baylor professor Francis Beckwith, a cradle Catholic who became a believer in the Evangelical world and then returned to the Catholic Church. “Well,” I thought, “if Beckwith likes it, it can’t be the kind of divisive book that I feared it might be.” Then I read Holy Ground myself and was pleased to encounter an irenic tone, a teachable spirit, and an open mind and heart.
