I cannot recommend this book. Each step of Mr. Hahn's conversion into the individual doctrines of Catholicism is based on his feelings, emotions, human reasoning and understanding. In other words, his authority for determining what is Truth is himself. That doesn't work for me and shouldn't for anyone.
The book was recommended by a friend. I ordered it and read the book in about 3 nights. I really enjoyed this book and I would advise anyone thinking about becoming a Catholic to read it. It is well written and interesting.
Learned of Scott via "Lighthouse Catholic Media" audio CDs that I received from a military Catholic Chaplain. The book is somewhat of a "Transcript" of his "talks" on these various CDs. I liked the fact that the book is not "all Scott." Each chapter ends with a "rebuttal" from his wife Kimberly. She openly shares her anguish and feelings of "betrayal" of Scott's intentions to go to the Catholic Church. Scott is open in sharing that there was a huge price to pay for converting. The loss of friendships and almost the loss of his marriage. It is a great resource for those who may be interested in doing the same....going from Protestant to Catholic.
We read this on our journey into the catholic faith. It was compelling and similar to our (my husband and I) journey into the Catholic Church. It was one of many resources that helped to provide the catalyst to journey forward. As a nondenominational bible-believing spirit-filled evangelical who would 'never be catholic' I praise God for His tender mercies, answered prayer, and removing the scales from my eyes and heart that lead us onward to the Catholic faith. Keep asking questions! God will answer them. - Still bible believing, spirit-filled and blessed beyond measure.
Nothing like getting it from those that struggled so much to get there. The 2 versions, husband and wife, convey a much stronger conviction and helps the reader understand more clearly all the aspects of the Catholic fait.
