Happy Easter to you all! Hope you have having a blessed day rejoicing in our Risen Savior!
Just to share some background: I’m the only person in my family who is Catholic back as far as I can track in the family tree. I converted 2 years ago at Easter Vigil and it has been the best choice I could have ever made. I feel like as much as I knew Christ as a Protestant being Catholic has broadened by understanding and love for Christ. I have lost nothing but gained the Sacraments of the Church and new layer of understanding Christ.
That being said I just found out the joyous news that my 20-year-old cousin, who I am very close to and I consider more like a brother, is considering converting to Catholicism. This is such a huge step for him considering he grew up in a very Methodist home and as a teenager became agnostic for a while. My family was not supportive of my conversion so I also know this will be met with opposition and this could be more severe for him than it was for me. His mother served as a missionary in college and both of his parents are heavily involved in their church. I know when I converted my aunt and uncle appeared supportive but I got the impression from others they felt differently when I was not around.
I was wanting to know what books would you recommend I get for him? I plan on getting him Rome Sweet Home by Scott Hahn but has anyone read anything else that helped their understanding of the faith?
Unfortunately I am 10 hours away so I cannot help him in person with this journey, but I know he is a reader and enjoys good theological debates about faith. Thank you for your help!
