This book gives a good background on the importance of tradition in the Catholic Church. It helped me to understand how tradition and the Bible run hand in hand. Some of it is rather thick to get through and is difficult to understand if one has no background with the church history, but it was interesting to learn/5.

Tradition, however, includes all areas of life of the Christian community and its piety, not just the teachings but also the forms of worship service, bodily gestures of prayer and the liturgy, oral and written tradition and the characteristic process of transition of the oral into written tradition, a new church tradition of rules for eating.

This book tears apart the Novus Ordo by going back to basics. Even though it is more directed at refuting Protestantism, given the time of the author, as Fr Michael Oswalt points out numerous times in his commentary of the book, so many truths are direct condemnations of the Novus Ordo.

Many lay people like to get into arguments about whether Bergoglio and the Vatican II “Popes” are.

Author Ken Myers doesn't believe "the culture" is the biggest challenge facing the Church today. Rather, it's the culture in the church that's the problem as many believers live not fully transformed by the Gospel. Myers is the founder and host of Mars Hill Audio journal, a bimonthly audio magazine featuring interviews with some of today's foremost Christian thought leaders in academics.

In this book he contrasts the Protestant’s “Bible alone” concept of authority with the Catholic “three-legged stool” of Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and the magisterium and shows that only the Catholic understanding fully harmonizes with the Bible’s teachings on authority and provides a guide by which Christians can distinguish God.

Calvinism (also called the Reformed tradition, Reformed Christianity, Reformed Protestantism, or the Reformed faith) is a major branch of Protestantism that follows the theological tradition and forms of Christian practice set down by John Calvin and other Reformation-era theologians.

Calvinists broke from the Roman Catholic Church in the 16th century. Calvinists differ from Lutherans. In the Western Church, Latin continued to be the common language of the liturgy until recently. In the Eastern churches in communion with the Catholic Church, Greek and other languages, including Aramaic, are used.
