No Turning Back: A Witness to Mercy

What does it take to transform a die-hard agnostic into a fervent apostle of Christ? How does God's grace literally transform hearts - one step at a time? In this conversion testimony No Turning Back, you'll literally be on the edge of your seat as a former "Deadhead" and drug-addict candidly shares how he was unexpectedly led to the Roman Catholic Church and eventually into a Roman collar as an ordained priest. An incredible odyssey of faith, Fr. Donald Calloway's radical conversion can be compared to that of a modern St. Augustine as chronicled in his famous Confessions.

The son of self-proclaimed "hillbillies" from the back woods of West Virginia, Donald Calloway was raised without any religion or a father figure to model. Finally baptized as a Protestant at the age of ten, he never received any formal Christian instruction. And when his family moved to California, he slipped into the "MTV lifestyle" - sex, drugs and rock music. This pagan rebellion intensified to total mayhem when his family relocated to Japan and he ran away from home.

Satisfaction of the senses became young Donald's rule of life that escalated to a life of crime. Constantly on the move to avoid arrest, he and his friends soon got connected with the Japanese Mafia. During this time of endless wanton wandering filled with wine, women and song, Donald's mother became Catholic and fervently prayed for her fifteen-year-old prodigal son to return home. Like a modern-day St. Monica, she trusted that God would touch his soul with the grace of repentance.


Under the Mantle: Marian Thoughts From a 21st Century Priest is the long-awaited book by Fr. Donald Calloway, author of the bestselling book No Turning Back: A Witness to Mercy.

In Under the Mantle, Fr. Calloway deftly shares his personal insights on topics including the Eucharist, the papacy, the Church, confession, Divine Mercy, prayer, the cross, masculinity and femininity.

The Blessed Virgin Mary is the central thread weaving a tapestry throughout with quotes about Our Lady from saints, blesseds, and popes. Under the Mantle is certain to become a "tour de force" Marian book!

Rev. Donald Calloway, M.I.C., is the assistant rector of the National Shrine of the Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, MA. As a convert to the Catholic Faith, Father Calloway left a rebellious life of wine, women and song to embrace God's saving truth. After studying at the Franciscan University in Steubenville, OH and the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, D.C., he was ordained to the sacred priesthood in 2003.

    No Turning Back/Under the Mantle

    As a recovering Alcoholic I found Father Calloway's book No turning back so inspirational. I drank like him and had a wake up call from my doctor that if I didn't quit I would destroy my liver. I am now in counselling and attending AA meetings. Haven't finished No turning back yet, but I'll read Under the Mantle right after.
