One of the best books I have ever read. It is bound to upset some people. The books does explain what the Catholic Church teaches and how this Protestant minister came to believe in these teachings. A very moving and touching story.
Scott Hahn explains beautifully the process that took him from a vehemently anti-catholic minister to one of the leading Catholic apologists in the world. It all began when he sought to understand his faith better. The entire book is deeply, thoughtfully and accurately rooted in Scripture (contrary to the assertion of a prior reviewer). The conclusions he came to were difficult for him, as for any Protestant, to accept, but the fruit of his faithful obedience is impossible to ignore. I challenge any sincere Protestant believer to read this book with an open mind, and recommend it also to Catholics who want to be able to better understand their faith and the Church.
Poor Catholic apologetics, but good resource for mature Christians in learning and understanding how converts to Catholicism greatly err in their analysis of considering this apostate church as the apostolic church of God.
One point for sincerity, but minus 4 points for emotionalism and scriptural ignorance. Scott Hahn was not fully grounded on what 2 Thessalonians 2:15 really meant, and everything was downhill for him from there. His testimonies on embracing the rosary and meeting JP2 were both pure emotionalism, and not scriptural-based...and is reminiscent of testimonies from Mormon converts regarding "burning in the bosom" after reading the Book of Mormon.
This is a very good book. If I had read a book like this I would have never been confused by the Evangelical-Fundamentalist arguments against Catholicism. I love Scott Hahn. He is a great Christian brother in Christ.
