The Lion and the Lamb: Evangelicals and Catholics in America

William M. Shea


This book explores the relationship between evangelical Protestants and Roman Catholics. It looks at the historical underpinnings of the enmity between the two groups, and finds some signs of warming since the founding of the National Association of Evangelicals and the decisions of the Vatican II. It suggests that, as a healing balm, the eschatological promise to lions and lambs is worth prayerful meditation in the present.

Keywords: evangelical Protestants, Roman Catholics, National Association of Evangelicals, Vatican II, religion
