A PROTESTANT EMBRACES THE TRUTH OF CATHOLICISM
I just finished reading Steve Ray's book "Crossing the Tiber." Great book. Many protestants will not agree with him but he presents many rational reasons for his conversion to Catholicism. The book gives his reasoned response to questions many protestants have regarding the faith. He does so with the use of scripture, history, and the official teachings of the Church. Even if one does not agree with Mr. Ray, one can not argue that his conversion is not rational. The book underscores Fulton Sheen's belief that protestants do no hate the Catholic Church, they hate what they wrongly perceive and wrongly understand as Catholic teaching. I highly recommend this book as a starting point for someone investigating the Church.
