TWO MEN FROM MALTA
A Shipwrecked Apostle and a Toronto Newspaperman Challenge Thoughtful Roman Catholics to Examine their Faith
Joe Serge with Joel Nederhood
TWO MEN FROM MALTA--one of the men is the Apostle Paul, the other is Joe Serge, a Toronto newspaperman and columnist. In this book Serge describes his odyssey from Roman Catholicism to the faith of the Reformation.
Serge invited Joel Nederhood, a theologian and long time radio and television teacher, to join him in examining primary Roman teaching such as "the Mass," "Mary," "the Papacy," and the essence of salvation itself. Dr. Nederhood, whose published works include THIS SPLENDID JOURNEY and THE FOREVER PEOPLE, has produced a highly readable and provocative examination of the biblical material that Roman Catholic believers should consider as they evaluate their faith position.
This book conveys the high sense of freedom that Joe Serge experiences now that he has embraced the biblical teachings of salvation by grace alone, apart from works. The book also conveys sincere respect for Roman Catholics who will read it. And there can be no question that Joe Serge is praying that many who read TWO MEN FROM MALTA will join him in following the biblical teaching that reveals that Christ's works, not ours, will bring sinners into glory.
"Three groups of people should read this book: first, Roman Catholics who want to know why educated people like Joe Serge would want to become protestants; second, nominal Christians who are curious to know what America's favorite hymn, "Amazing Grace" is all about; and third, evangelicals who are being tempted by contemporary theologies to question basic doctrines in their reformed heritage. Guided in his study of the Bible by his spiritual mentor, the radio/television evangelist, Joel Nederhood, Serge tells the story of his spiritual pilgrimage in a clear and winsome manner. The book is a solidly biblical and heart-warming testimony to God's saving grace in Jesus Christ." -Dr. Roger S. Greenway, Calvin Theological Seminary , Grand Rapids, Michigan
"We are very much in need of winsome, popular, and yet not simplistic critiques of the errors of the Roman Catholic understanding of the Scriptures and the way of salvation. This easy-to-read short volume by Joe Serge and Joel Nederhood helps fill that need. It not only provides the human interest account of one man's pilgrimmage from a religion of works to a religion of real grace, but it also beautifully depicts the night versus day difference between man-made religion and faith that truly ascribes all glory to God. It's a great gift to give to Roman Catholic friends and neighbors because it so helpfully explains the gift of eternal life and acceptance with God through the person and work of Jesus Christ alone and received by faith alone. I commend it highly!" - Pastor Bill Shishko
