About this item

Two Cardinals, five bishops, and scores of Catholic leaders love Surprised by Truth 2 - you will, too!

This collection of testimonies by people who've found new life in the Catholic Church is one of the most potent weapons for the Faith ever crafted! These authors don't just tell their stories - they also give you an insider's view of the fatal weaknesses in the creeds and belief systems that beckon unwary Catholics every day: Fundamentalism, New Age paganism, Mormonism, materialistic hedonism, and many others.

You'll discover why these converts forsook beliefs cherished by their families and friends in order to enter the Catholic Church. Their reasons are so compelling that you can use them to draw your own non-Catholic friends and relatives to the Faith. These converts will also convince your wavering Catholic friends to stay Catholic, and they'll even bolster your own faith when anti-Catholic arguments start to make you doubt. You'll come away with new gratitude that God has given you the Faith, and with a strong new tool you can use to stand proudly for that Faith.

"God's grace is tailored to the needs of each individual, but there is also a pattern to God's love. These conversion stories reveal that pattern."

"There's hardly a better tool for communicating the fullness of the Catholic Faith than this collection of personal stories."

"Compelling accounts of conversion. The reader cannot help but be moved by the inspiring stories of those whose hearts and minds were 'surprised' by Truth."

"This book truly speaks to the hunger of the human heart. I recommend it not only for RCIA programs and adult religious education, but also for the broader scope of parish evangelization efforts."

Plain and simple language and truth
I enjoy all of Patrick Madrid's writings and videos. He speaks and explains plainly and with great knowledge. He truly love Jesus Christ and wants to bring all people to greater understanding and fulfillment.

Thorough, well-researched, well-written essays
I have read both the first and second book of Surprised By Truth. Both were excellent. Anyone reading them objectively, with an open mind and heart, will learn a lot about the Christian faith in general and Catholicism specifically. I could say a lot about these essays; they are so well-written. What is most important is that they are written from the point of view of love and truth-seeking. I recommend Surprised By Truth.

Read this book and you might be surprised, too.
An excellent compilation of stories about people who viewed the Catholic Church very negatively. However, after circumstances caused them to look much deeper into the history and teachings of the Church, they were greatly surprised. Their previous views about the Church were not at all accurate. In fact, as they delved into honest and earnest investigation, it became increasingly clear to them that the best path to Jesus was through the Catholic Church. An honest, thought provoking book that will introduce one to the Catholic Church.

Apologetics Meets Innovation
This book goes beyond the scope of the first book, bringing together the stories of converts from non-Christian religions, reverts who left the Church and came back, as well as people who re-ignited their Catholic faith after falling away for a time to follow secularism and the ways of the world. As such, it reaches a wider audience than Pat's first book, asking questions which trouble modern man. I highly recommend this work, which can be read in short sittings and which will challenge even the most mediocre Catholic to rethink their faith.
