This book’s full title is a mouthful: How God Hauled Me Kicking and Screaming Into the Catholic Church. However, you’d expect nothing less from Lowry, a member of Legatus’ Columbus Chapter.
The former preacher’s kid at a Catholic university recalls settling into a double major in beer and billiards, followed by uncomfortable run-ins with pious students and failing grades. After getting his act together, he got the MBA, and also got the girl. Meanwhile, God was drawing him to the inevitable conclusion that Catholicism was true despite his objections. Lowry’s journey to Catholicism is fascinating, often funny, and demonstrates God’s unfailing love for us all.
