About Father Longenecker:
Fr. Dwight Longenecker is an American who has spent most of his life living and working in England.
Fr. Longenecker was brought up in an Evangelical home in Pennsylvania. After graduating from the fundamentalist Bob Jones University with a degree in Speech and English, he went to study theology at Oxford University. He was eventually ordained as an Anglican priest and served as a curate, a school chaplain in Cambridge and a country parson on the Isle of Wight.
Realizing that he and the Anglican Church were on divergent paths, in 1995 Fr. Dwight and his family were received into the Catholic Church. To read Fr. Longenecker’s conversion story or to listen to the audio version connect to the archived articles section of his blog.
About More Christianity:
No one would dare to suggest that C. S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity is anything less than a brilliant explanation and defense of the Faith. But as robust, wise and ardent as it is, still it is incomplete. It begins our banquet at the table of the Lord, but doesn’t take us all the way to the final course.
That is what Fr. Dwight Longenecker’s new book, More Christianity, does. It fills our plates with the fullness of the Christian Faith found only in the Catholic Church. Lest someone think Longenecker is presuming to piggyback or cash in on Lewis’ work, or to set himself up as Lewis’ successor, that is not the case. What he does—and does brilliantly—is present the doctrine of the Church with succinct explanations of topics that arise in Catholic/Protestant discussion: the Marian dogmas, the papacy, the Mass, purgatory, the communion of saints, the rosary and more.
“A balanced, engaging, and charitable work, More Christianity will go far in helping Evangelicals (and Catholics) better appreciate the riches and glories of the Catholic Church.”
— Carl Olson, Author, The Da Vinci Hoax
