Roy Schoeman's work, Honey from the Rock illuminates the essential link between the Jewish faith and Catholicism through the lives of those who were born into the Jewish faith and have come to know the fulfillment of their faith in Christ and His Catholic Church. I recommend Honey from the Rock to anyone who desires to understand the revealed faith of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, which is fulfilled in Jesus Christ and His Mystical Body, the Church. Honey from the Rock illustrates in a most concrete way the truth expounded so well by Roy Schoeman in his earlier work, Salvation is from the Jews, which I also wholeheartedly recommend. --Raymond L. Burke, Archbishop of Saint Louis
This book is far more than just another collection of conversion stories. It is a spiritual pathway with each story creating a stepping stone to transformation. These life changing encounters will deepen your faith and provide insights into the riches of the Catholic Church. It is filled with Jewish wit and wisdom and climaxes in the radical transformation of conversion. I highly recommend this book to all who wish to grow deeper and learn about the Faith from a Jewish point of view. You won't be disappointed! --Brother Bob Fishman - B.S.C.D.
Roy Schoeman has given us all a great gift in showing us the mysterious and wonderful ways in which Y'shua, the Messianic Son of David, and His Mother Miryam continue to speak deeply to the longing hearts of that people to whom, more than all others, we Gentiles owe an incalculable debt. --Mark Shea, Senior Content Editor, CatholicExchange.com
About the Author
Roy Schoeman grew up studying Judaism under the most prominent Rabbis in American Judaism. After receiving his B.S. from M.I.T. and an M.B. A. from Harvard, he taught at Harvard, and was voted teacher of the year by the students. His unexpected conversion to Catholicism led to a dramatic refocus of his activities. He hosts a Catholic TV show, studies and writes on religious topics. He is the author of the best-selling book Salvation Is From The Jews.

The difference is not simply that these converts are Jews, but that their Jewishness seems to bring with it an added degree of mysticality. So many of these biographies and autobiographies involve episodes in which the other world becomes momentarily visible, and it seems to me that this is not the ordinary convert's experience.
The autobiographical accounts are related with a self-deprecating humour (a Jewish trait?) that adds enormously to the pleasure of reading.
I couldn't put the book down, but I had to pause to think long and hard at the end of each chapter.
I am a convert and I love conversion stories. But as another reviewer said, these are really different. Some of the authors are better than others at expressing in writing their journey but all will rejoice your heart.
