As far as conversion stories go, I've read them all. This one, however, takes the cake as one of the best.
Writer and editor Tim Drake has compiled a plethora of excellent stories by former Lutheran pastors, both male and female, a pastor-turned-priest, and some thoughtful lay people.
The beauty of these stories is that they are not only thought-provoking and easy-to-read, but that all of them come from the very denomination which originally split with the Catholic Church nearly 500 years ago. Where has this book been for the last 500 years?
In particular, I found the stories by former pastors Audrey Zech, Jennifer Ferrara, and Patricia Ireland among the best in the book. One realizes exactly what these women had to give up (their vocation) in the process and their sacrifice is truly inspiring.
Tim Drake, whose own story originally appeared in Surprised by Truth 2, tells a more complete version of his story in this book.
All in all, the stories, each individually concentrate on different issues of faith. For example, Ferrara's and Ireland's deal with the issue of abortion, Todd von Kampen's deals with justification, Fr. Larry Blake's deals with the Eucharist, and Tony Gerring's story deals with contraception. It's a well-rounded work.
In addition, the book contains a wonderful foreword by one of the most famous recent Lutheran converts - Rev. Richard John Neuhaus, editor of First Things.
Finally, the book contains an appendix which includes all of the documents regarding the Lutheran World Federation and the Catholic Church's 1999 agreement on the Doctrine of Justification. The documents are helpful to any serious student of the Reformation and more recent efforts at Ecumenism.
In short, if you had to pick one book of modern Catholic conversion stories, this would be the one to start with. It's very compelling reading!
