From American Converts

John Beaumont has compiled several encyclopedic (and shorter) books on converts. His latest is The Mississippi Flows into the Tiber: A Guide to Notable American Converts to the Catholic Church, Fidelity Press, 2014.

I post some quotations from the book in From American Converts.

Wow ! Thank you!
A stunning collection of quotes !!

Interesting read. I like this one — “When you get into any Christian doctrine, once you do more than scrape the surface, you get back into the Roman Catholic Church.
— Frederick Hart”

To be continued…

From Across the Pond

I’ve decided to remove the contents of the two blog posts. Links to the publishers remain.

The excerpts are now back, with a strong encouragement to buy the books.
