Default Any good books or movies about conversion and/or The Church

I'm a Protestant and am looking into Catholicism. I'm not sure maybe it's God tugging I just have a desire to find out more about my faith. I'm just looking for any works to start off reading or watching about conversion or the Church in general.

First thread I started

I am also a Protestant looking into Catholicism. In addition to the resources the others have posted you might find a book titled If Protestantism is True an interesting read. I am currently reading that one myself. It is written by a guy who was once a Baptist but ended up converting to Catholicism. It discusses his faith journey and his findings as a result of his personal research into his Protestant beliefs.

Here are two that I have really appreciated:

The Pillar of Fire. ( An Autobiography) Written by Karl Stern

Edith Stein: St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (A Biography) Written by Marķa Ruiz Scaperlanda

Both of the subjects of these books found Catholicism through Judaism.

Catholicism for dummies was recommended by my deacon when I expressed my desire to covert from the Methodist church
