This book was written as an explanation to his fundamentalist and evangelical friends and family about why he became a Roman Catholic. Currie presents a very lucid, systematic and intelligible account of the reasons for his conversion to the ancient Church that Christ founded. He gives a detailed discussion of the important theological and doctrinal beliefs Catholic and evangelicals hold in common, as well as the key doctrines that separate us, particularly the Eucharist, the Pope, and Mary.
"David Currie has written what may turn out to be the work on this nettlesome topic of Evangelicals being received into the Catholic Church. With great charity and lucidity, he pursues every conceivable topic - biblical, ecclesiological, theological, and historical - that arises in the discussions on this matter."
-Thomas Howard, Author, Evangelical is Not Enough
"Currie has given us a work which is eminently intelligible, readable and personal. This book makes an especially happy marriage of the 'head' and the 'heart' in explaining the when, the why and the how of his pilgrimage. It should serve as a paradigm for the movement of 'Everyman' toward God and the Church His divine Son founded."
-Rev. Peter M.J. Stravinskas, Editor, The Catholic Answer
"Currie's book is a must read. Seldom is something so deep explained so clearly as Currie does in this wonderful work. Get it and get a copy for a friend."
- Scott Hahn, Author, Rome, Sweet Home

|Review:||I am a Catechumen currently in the RCIA program. This book was a great source of information and explanation of the Catholic faith. David Currie's personal anecdotes & reasons for writing this book really hit home with me. Coming to the Catholic faith in my 30's, this was a perfect purchase! Best Uses: Apologetics, Catechumens Candidates; Pros: Great information, Reads like a story|
