Item description for Rome Sweet Home: Our Journey to Catholicism by Scott Hahn & Kimberly Hahn...

Overview
The well-known and very popular Catholic couple, Scott and Kimberly Hahn, have been constantly travelling and speaking all over North America for the last few years about their conversion to the Catholic Church. Now these two outstanding Catholic apologists tell in their own words about the incredible spiritual journey that led them to embrace Catholicism. Scott Hahn was a Presbyterian minister, the top student in his seminary class, a brilliant Scripture scholar, and militantly anti-Catholic ... until he reluctantly began to discover that his "enemy" had all the right answers. Kimberly, also a top-notch theology student in the seminary, is the daughter of a well-known Protestant minister, and went through a tremendous "dark night of the soul" after Scott converted to Catholicism. Their conversion story and love for the Church has captured the hearts and minds of thousands of lukewarm Catholics and brought them back into an active participation in the Church. They have also influenced countless conversions to Catholicism among their friends and others who have heard their powerful testimony. Written with simplicity, charity, grace and wit, the Hahns' deep love and knowledge of Christ and of Scripture is evident and contagious throughout their story. Their love of truth and of neighbor is equally evident, and their theological focus on the great importance of the family, both biological and spiritual, will be a source of inspiration for all readers. "One of the beautiful and bright-shining stars in the firmament of hope for our desperate days is this couple, the Hahns, and this story of their life and their conversion." -- Peter Kreeft, Author, Back to Virtue "Dynamic, fresh, and devoted are terms which describe the approach that Scott and Kimberly Hahn take to assist in the renewal of the Church in the United States. Now, with their conversion, they are admirably suited to assist Catholics in re-discovering the treasure that has been entrusted to them. My hope is that many people will benefit from contact with Scott and Kimberly Hahn through their stories of conversion." -- Most Reverend John Myers, Bishop of Peoria

Reviews - What do customers think about Rome Sweet Home: Our Journey to Catholicism?

Compelling  Mar 22, 2007
This is a compelling book. I read it quite some time ago, early in my own journey to the Church. While this is not the book that ultimately brought me home, it certainly didn't hurt. It begins with Dr. Hahn recounting stories from his past, including destroying his grandmother's rosary beads. Im his youth he was a fiery convert to Evangelical Fundamentalism, and when his grandmother died, his family gifted him her "religious stuff" because he was the only other really religious person in the family. Imagine a young Scott Hahn tearing her rosary beads apart praying to God for an end to the "errors" of Catholicism.

That is heavy stuff. How does one, ultimately, go from being a fiery fundamentalist to a believer in Historic Christianity? The reason is ultimately a love for scripture.

However, his wife also played a role. She was never an anti-Catholic. Dr. Hahn was. She was content to remain Presbyterian until the end of her days, but was also content to view Catholics fellow Christians who believed some things in error. Not so for her husband. Kimberly became convinced (Scott and Kimberly were classmates in seminary) that the "Catholic" teaching on the evils of contraception were correct. She came to this conclusion using Scripture alone. Scott examined the teaching closely. (One gets the feeling he didn't want kids right then) But, in the end, became convinced by her argument. The uncomfortable questions then came up: If the Catholic Church is the only Christian Church still proclaiming this truth (the immorality of contraception) why is that? Also, if the papists are right about this, might they be right about other things as well?

Scott eventually converted to the Catholic faith, after a long and painful journey of course. He had a convert's zeal. However, his wife did not wish to join him. She was never as anti-Catholic as Scott was. She saw Catholics as fellow Christians; she had no need to leave her "home base" of Presbyterianism. However, as an anti-Catholic, once Scott saw the truth he HAD to convert. What other choice did he have?

After much prayer, much sacrifice, and tremendous personal pain, Kimberly was also brought into the Church.

This book recounts this story. Anyone who converts to Catholicism from fundamentalism faces the cross. One recent convert had his wife leave him and take their children with her to distant state. Mind you, this is a good husband and father. I guess that is what passes for "Christian" in the "Nazarene" Church. Often fundamentalist converts loose everything: their friends, their families, and less importantly, their jobs. Fundamentalist pastors who convert (there have been hundreds) loose their livelihood and ability to feed their families. Fundamentalism is an enclosed camp that views any Christian who veers from their limited view of the scriptures as in league with the anti-Christ, who is coming any moment. They will be ruptured away leaving only those who deserve to suffer and die (especially Catholics) to the torment of the tribulation. This is not a joke. They actually believe this stuff. It is a very cruel and hateful system to those who have the audacity to buck it.

This is a compelling book. Although it has been years since I first read it, the general outline and some of the details have really stuck with me. Well worth the read.
 
Answers Questions  Jan 9, 2007
This book answered many questions I had about cathology, while making a very strong argument. An enjoyable read as well.
 
Rome Sweet Home: Our Journey to Catholocism  Jan 4, 2007
I highly recommend this book. Two of my friends were raving about it and the challenges met by the author and his wife in converting to Catholicism. It is interesting to see the heart felt challenge in accepting Catholic doctrine which as a "cradle Catholic," I took for granted. I learned so much about my faith through Scott and Kimberly Hahn's journey.
 
Rmoe SweetHome  Jan 3, 2007
My husband and I both read this book and found it very hard to put down. Both Scott Hahn and his wife Kimberly write of their conversion story in this book. It is a very interesting story of conversion of a highly educated couple. It didn't happen overnight and this is the story of how Scott and Kimberly worked through all the emotions of a couple receiving their conversion at different times - years apart. It was an exciting, sometimes heart wrenching time and it is very well told.
 
Testimony Time!  Dec 23, 2006
If your are looking to study the doctrines of the Catholic faith, this book is a good springboard, but will not be much help to you. However, if you want a glimpse into the inner struggles and joys many Protestants go through on their journey to the Catholic Church, I highly recommend reading this book!
