About this item
This collection of testimonies by nine former atheists who found new life in the Catholic Church is one of the most helpful tools for cultivating the faith ever crafted! Here you’ll meet:
- The atheistic Jew who sparked the conversionof a fellow atheist, and led him into the priesthood.
- The Nietzsche-loving bodybuilder whoseatheism was upended by St. Thomas Aquinas.
- The hardened, anti-Catholic, neo-Nazi convict whoshed his vices and became a celebrated Catholic author.
- The commune-dwelling hippie socialist whois now a happy Catholic husband and father.
- The once militant, gay atheist whois now “Christ’s willing captive.”
And other prominent members of our Church who, in our generation, have escaped the swamp of atheistic relativism and embraced Holy Mother Church!
Dramatic and thought-provoking, these intensely personal stories refute virtually every atheistic objection to God while explaining the arguments —and events — that eventually led them into the Catholic Church.
Here you’ll encounter proofs for the faith that will confirm your own faith and help you explain it to others, including to atheists. Read and learn:Filling Our Father's House
Converts often bring to the Catholic Church an evangelical zeal that can renew and energize even the most tired and battle weary among us.
The Church is hurting for enthusiastic voices to proclaim her teachings on truth and morals. In these pages, Shaun McAfee, a convert from Evangelical Protestantism shows how we can take the best tools of evangelization and use them to reach countless souls with the fullness of the Christian Faith.
With Shaun's help, you'll learn simple ways you can make the visitor in your parish more at home, how to speak compellingly about the Faith, simple ways to integrate daily Scripture reading into your life, why small groups are important for spiritual enrichment, and how to communicate with souls who have never considered joining the Catholic Church.
The simple steps Shaun outlines in these pages will also show priests and lay leaders how to more effectively engage modern society with our Catholic Faith.
Our society is awash in secularism. It's eating away at the sense of God, and the emptying of the pews in our own parishes is its natural effects. What we need is a renewal of enthusiasm for the battle against secularism and this book is a beginner's guide to getting us back on track.
