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.
I received this book as a gift and was a bit skeptical but found it very compelling. Dr. Hahn and his wife both explain the challenges they faced as they tried to square the teachings of their Calvinistic backgrounds with the Bible and Christian history. While ultimately a work of Catholic apologetics those struggling with similar callings to Catholicism may find this book very helpful.
All though this book was put together rather quicklly because it is mainly a diary of Scott and Kimberly Hahn, it was an excellant read. It is a powerful story of the conversion of a protestant husband and wife to the Catholic church and the struggles along the way. I would highly recommend this book to anyone considering the Catholic church or anyone who has family who is negative towards the Catholic church. Their story speaks for itself.
