This book is inspiring to read of the power of the faith which has gripped this couple and moved them to take it seriously and to build their whole lives around it and upon it. It is about a couple and the love they have for God and for each other.

This was an excellent book! The format was his thoughts, then her thoughts, along the journey they took from Protestant minister and wife, to Catholicism. Kimberley, especially, had a painful journey as the daughter of a minister and a woman who had married a minister. I loved the story, and Scott's academic train of thought led him ahead of Kimberley. The story was fantastic!

Wonderful story. I really like the way Scott and Kimberly interweave their stories. This is a personal history, not a defense of the Catholic Church. Hahn scratches the surface leaving me wanting more.

This is a wonderful,informative conversion story of 2 VERY Protestant people and how they found their way to Catholicism. Scott Hahn and his wife Kimberly are now very noted speakers and they speak from their heart about their journey. They were always looking for answers concerning the Covenant with God and His People and found their answers in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass that Catholics go to worship and in the Holy Sacraments.

For a better understanding of the Catholic Religion and the conflicts that non-Catholics go through, I would recommend this book. It is uplifting as well as a learning experience.

This is a fantastic book about the step by step process that Scott Hahn (formerly very anti-Catholic) took while trying to discover which religion held what he was seeking - the Truth. And to his horror and surprise, he found the Truth in the Catholic Church. He gives very compelling arguments and lays out the results of his research into the Bible and writings of the early Church fathers (prior to the Protestant Reformation.)

This book is is the story of Scott & Kimberly Hahn's conversion to Catholicism. I like how their story is told from both points of view. The two meet in college, both are theology majors and dream of ministering to the people of their Church. They are very active in their Church after graduation. However, the more they study the Bible, the closer they come to understanding the teaching of the Catholic Church. They call their theologian friends and professors to plead with them to point out the flaws in their thinking, because the last thing they want is to be in agreement with the teaching of the Catholic Church. It was a compelling read.

Some funny jokes, like

A ceiling repairer in St. Peters saw an American woman praying, so, in fun, he called out from above "This is Jesus", the woman didn't respond, so he said it louder "THIS IS JESUS",[etc.] She finally responds, "Go away, I'm talking to your mother!"

Everything else in the book is just dicta.
