Short but covers all the bases Dec 26, 2007
I have read many conversion stories, including Scott Hahn, Steve Wood, Steve Ray, and Jeff Cavins. All are very interesting and unique, but I find Bruce Sullivan's short and to the point yet leaving plenty of documentation for further discovery and discernment. For someone who wants an introduction to how the Holy Spirit works in one's faith life, this book would be a good starting point
This Book Is GRRRREAT! Jul 21, 2007
I remeber an old Baptist preacher who never wavered from His faith. Always stood alone when it came to those around him. He was a Light to me even though he wasn't catholic and scathed by sooo many. His name was The Rev. Jerry Falwell. Whatever you may think of him now. I know in my heart many people in the Christian world knew and understood him. I was a Baptist and am a Catholic now thanks to Bruce's Book. This was my first. But I will always have a dear and special love for The Rev. Falwell. When values were at steak, he was with The Catholics at the forefront. I remember His relationship with the Now Deceased also Card John O'Connor of New York. He is my role model for standing tall amidst the "reed" as Simon "Peter" was called before his name change. Simon means, "like a reed" that blows in the wind to a "ROCK", something that stands firm. Peace... Thank you Bruce for this Book and know that many are blessed through you because of it! Pray for one man here in Chicago who is having a tough time, but is doing the Journey, too!
Theology for smart people... Apr 11, 2007
Sullivan's book outlines a fascinating journey of faith that took him from his roots in the Southern Baptist church to the pulpits of the Churches of Christ and ultimately to experience "Christ in His fullness" as a Catholic.
As a non-Catholic reader and someone who attends a Church of Christ, I found his theological arguments for the sanctity of the Holy Roman Catholic Church both compelling and truly interesting without being at all strident or self-righteous. Sullivan's approach is more intellectual than emotional - with demonstrable detail paid to research and documentation. I call it "theology for smart people" because the reader soon discovers that Sullivan has spent many, many years in intense theological study. It's not light reading. That said, his conversational style kept me truly engrossed. While I have no plans to convert to Catholicism, the book allowed me a deeper understanding of Catholic doctrine and prompted me to further investigate my own theological arguments.
I have recommended this book to many friends and family members affiliated with the Baptist church and Churches of Christ as a means for better understanding the beliefs of our Catholic brothers and sisters.
I am currently reading this book for the second time.
