Great, diverse stories Sep 6, 2008
With the diversity of these 11 testimonies, many people can be able to connect to where they come from. In different ways, many stories connect to my background and ongoing struggle to find truth. After reading "The Catholic Verses" by Dave Armstrong, this book has helped to reincorce my doubts about my Evangelical faith. This book was entertaining to read and has many important points.
Enlightening and Personal Jun 6, 2008
I really enjoyed this book. It is a collection of personal conversion stories from Roman Catholic converts (protestants, mostly). A great deal of RCC doctrine is discussed, but in the context of the personal accounts. It was helpful to read how other people have grappled with various doctrinal issues before making a decision to join the RCC. Especially helpful if you are considering conversion to Catholicism.
excellent reading. May 30, 2008
Very good! Page turner. I would recommend this book to anyone who was a sincere Protestant Christian in love with Jesus, and found themselves with the overwhelming joy and happiness at the unthinkable: to find themselves finally home at Rome. Recently reverted to the Catholic Church, I laughed and cried and giggled my way through nearly every page, as these conversion stories brought back sweet memories of my own reversion. Each soul goes through the same experiences I did when being surprised by truth! There is no place like home.

I have learned more from the testimonies in this book than I have learned in any catechism class. I highly recommend this book for anyone with questions about the Catholic faith. Each chapter explains how every author came to see the truth of the Catholic Church. Outstanding, eye-opening testimonies.

This book is an old friend. It circulates amoung other friends, and eventually doesn't come home again, so I buy it again, and again, and again, and I will continue to buy it, as I like to have one on hand, and like many of my books I like to refresh my acquaintance quite often. These stories are inspiring, encouraging and hope full.
