Letters Between a Catholic and an Evangelical:

From Debate to Dialogue on the Issues That Separate Us

Father John R. Waiss ’79 and James G. McCarthy (Harvest House)


The two correspondents believe in the same God, the same Christ. Their theology differs, however. Here, the priest and evangelical minister share their views of those disagreements in a series of balanced and thoughtful letters and conversations. The letters focus on the six key areas that distinguish the belief systems of the priest and minister. These include the meaning of the Last Supper, how one obtains salvation and the differing beliefs about Mary, angels and the saints.
