Welcome Home: Stories of Fallen-Away Catholics Who Came Back
$11.65 (Save $1.30)
[Paperback] Ignatius Press (2000)
Here are the compelling stories of eleven “reverts”, Catholics who fell away from the Church and eventually came back home. Some of the people are very well-known, like Fr. John Corapi, Rick Strom and Jesse Romero, and others are known only in their smaller circles. But each person’s story of why he left the Catholic Church and why he returned is a unique and moving tale of God’s mercy, love and grace. There is one common denominator, though, among the writers of Welcome Home! To parapharse Archbishop Fulton Sheen, few hate the Catholic Chruch for what she teaches, but millions hate it for what they think she teaches. The defining moment of illuminating grace almost always came when our storytellers began to examine Catholic teaching for themselves.
