By reading this book you can clearly see the Lord working in the lives of the Hahn family. The book is easy to read (I read it in a day) and gives good views of what the Catholic faith is all about. However, this book does not go into much detail. It merely explains what the beliefs are and some Bible references to back it up. It is definitely not a book that will explain all the answers, yet it certainly does make you think and want to read and discover more. I have had the great opportunity to meet Mr. Hahn and I must say that that I was even more impressed with him than I expected to be. The book clearly shows his personality and the love that he and his wife have for the Lord. A definite read for all Catholics and non-Catholics.

Format: Paperback
I find the sort of Bible punching, blind faith, muscular Christianity from whence the Hanes started their journey deeply unattractive, as I suspect do many. It is the face of the Reformed faith which I believe has contributed much to the collapse of formal religion in the West. As the Irishman said when asked the way to Dublin, "If I was going to Dublin, I wouldn't have started from here."
However, I made a similar journey to the Hayns forty years ago, starting from agnosticism. I have not once in those forty years regretted my decision to become a Catholic.
In spite of my reservations, I found this book an absolutely compelling read and finished it in one day. Once I had picked it up, I could not put it down. It has left me with a deeper appreciation and love of my Catholic faith, for which I am grateful to Scott and Kimberly. I can't wait to get my hands on some of their tapes.

As a Catholic living the Christian life, I recognise the truth of Scott and Kimberly Hahn's struggle. It cannot be downgraded as merely the academic theology of an intellectual. Their book recounts an experience with God; a painful carrying of the Cross, filled with prayer. It is a first class presentation of two conversions, in which we learn so much about God, and the strength of Protestant fear of Christ's Church, the Catholic Church. Critics of the Hahns' conversion are outside the experience of Catholicism; therefore they cannot judge either Catholicism or their conversion. Such judging is only an academic exercise for them. I plead with the critics to face the questions faced by the Hahns, with humble prayer. This book is an exceptionally good beginning. Why can't I give it 100 stars?

Format: Paperback
Conversion seems to be as much about a change in intellectual convictions as a change in life convictions. This book captures the couple's journey through both. It shows us that even with a clear intellectual conviction, it is the perfectly acceptable "small" things in life such as our family, our partner, our friends what makes conversion very hard. Like wolves in sheep's clothing.
While the book is interesting for non-catholics, it is a must-read for catholics that need to revamp their religious life. It reminds us that conversion should happen everyday and if we are not fighting, we are going backwards.
A delightful and inspiring reading.

I read this book in one day. It is so interesting I just couldn't stop. People of all religions should read this book. Searching for the truth is not always easy but this book gives all the reasons why the Catholic Church is the one true Church. Anyone who has questions about Catholics beliefs or practices, can find answers here in this easy to read book written by the Hahn's.

Format: Paperback
As a former Babtist who converted to Catholicism, I understood a lot of the Hahn's pain of separation from long-held beliefs, family, co-workers and friends. "Rome Sweet Home" made me also relive the joys I experienced by coming home to the Caholic Church. This simple yet heart-sharing book challenged me to study Catholicism even further, and the more I learn, the more I love it. Scott Hahn is so learned and can get his points across very well, especially the covenant.This book is a MUST READ for all Catholics, and especially for anti-Catholics so that they come to understand that their pastors have misrepresented Catholicism to them.I gave a copy to my brother,a Baptist minister with a Th.D,but he returned it unread. Read this excellent book soon!!

Format: Paperback
"Rome Sweet Home" is one of those rare books that inspires the reader to prayer and devotion to our Lord as well as educates the reader in Catholic apologetics! This is a great book for anyone who has had their Catholicism challenged and was wondering why they believed. It will give Catholics inspiration to be re-excited about their faith, the gift of the Eucharist and Mary's role in our spiritual lives. For non-catholics, it will help readers understand the Catholic faith through the eyes of a learned, Protestant Seminary Professor who, in seeking truth through scripture, saw that the Catholic Church was THE church of Bible-believing Christians. This book shows how a young Protestant couple initially struggled intellectually and socially with "Turning to Rome", but how the Holy Spirit worked in their lives to lead them Home. It's easy to read and entertaining. I've bought at least 12 copies to give to friends and family, and my friends and family have typically read the book and been so impressed that they have passed it on to others. This book helped me (a life-long Catholic) to more fully appreciate the aspects of my faith that I had previously taken for granted, and it continues to inspire me to Scripture reading, prayer and devotion to the Lord.
