Publisher's Description

Can evangelical faith and Catholicism be reconciled?
How does a kid from working-class Detroit become an international ambassador for Christ? And what motivated an evangelical-based ministry to choose this Catholic as its chairman?

Mike Timmis’s inspiring life as a Catholic and evangelical leader reveals how our unity in Christ transcends the two worlds’ differences. From him, we learn how Catholics and evangelicals can go into an alienated world together as ministers of reconciliation and witnesses to God’s salvation and love.

Author Bio

Mike Timmis was born in Detroit, Michigan, where he has had a distinguished career as both an attorney and businessman. He earned his undergraduate degree from Wayne State University and graduated with highest honors from the Wayne State Law School in 1965. In 1999, he was the recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award from William Tyndale College.
Mike is a Roman Catholic and a member of St. Paul Catholic Church, Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan. He is also a founding member of the National Fellowship of Catholic Men. Mike serves as chairman of Prison Fellowship International, comprised of 114 chartered countries, and Prison Fellowship Ministries (USA). He also presently serves on the board of The Navigators and is a past member of the board of Promise Keepers. He and his wife, Nancy, minister to the poor in the Third World and have developed self-help projects in Africa and Central and South America. They are also very active in addressing the educational needs of children in Detroit. Mike and his wife are in the Order of Malta and are members of Legatus.
The Timmises, who have been married for forty-five years, reside in Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan, and Naples, Florida. They are parents of two and grandparents of four.

Publisher's Weekly

This personal account provides support for the old adage that money really can’t buy love. Timmis, a successful Detroit-area lawyer and businessman, rose through the ranks of his firm early in his professional life and had accomplished his primary career goals by age 42. But while he was achieving accolades in the corporate world, his spiritual life and home situation were collapsing. After hearing a moving testimony from a corporate executive at a dinner party, Timmis was impelled to turn his life over to God in a complete and new way. He now directs much more effort into his marriage, family life and acts of charity, and he finds a support network to help keep him spiritually focused. His story is often moving and at times painfully honest, but the book’s title is misleading. This is not a book on interfaith dialogue but a memoir, and it only flirts with the tension between Timmis’s Catholic upbringing and the evangelical Christianity he now embraces. Furthermore, while Timmis often adopts a humble tone regarding his faith, he occasionally slips into judgmental prose. The author’s reflections would have been stronger without these diversions, but his narrative should inspire many to re-evaluate their spiritual lives and consider more healthy priorities. (Jan.)

    Mike Timmis has shared his life's challenges in an honest and forthright manner. It was refreshing that he admitted his own sins but offered realistic approaches to overcome the temptations that beset most men. It was especially meaningful that Mike was able to clearly explain that the person of Jesus, and only Jesus, holds the power to bridge the gap between Protestant and Catholics as well as other religions and cultures around the world. As doors were miraculously open with high level foreign leaders and officials, demonstrating their hunger for the Truth of Jesus, this has been testimony to Mike's faith and dependence on the power of the Holy Spirit. Mike simply took Jesus at his word. His autobiography was especially meaningful to me personally in that I also lost my only daughter through tragedy. I could feel Mike's pain as only those who have lost children can. Again, Jesus is the answer as Mike so aptly testifies. I plan to share his book with other friends in my fellowship group. ~ Hank Prevette
