Surprised by Life: 10 Converts Explain How Catholic Teachings on Life Led Them to the Church
Sophia Institute Press, 208 pages
Catholic apologist Patrick Madrid has assembled here a collection of personal stories of men and women who have come to embrace Catholicism because her teachings on life issues transformed their hearts.
Through this book you’ll meet individuals from an array of backgrounds — among them a prostitute, a Jewish lawyer, a promiscuous victim of sexual abuse, a contracepting couple, an unwed expectant teen, and a post-abortion suicide survivor — who endured many trials and errors before they discovered the truth and entered the Catholic Church. Their stories of conversion might also edify your heart — as many conversion stories are capable of doing.
