David Currie was raised in a devout Christian family whose father was a fundamentalist preacher and both parents teachers at Moody Bible Institute. Currie’s whole upbringing was immersed in the life of fundamentalist Protestantism – theology professors, seminary presidents and founders of evangelical mission agencies were frequent guests at his family dinner table. Currie received a degree from Trinity International University and studied in the Masters of Divinity program.
This book was written as an explanation to his fundamentalist and evangelical friends and family about why he became a Roman Catholic. Currie presents a very lucid, systematic and intelligible account of the reasons for his conversion to the ancient Church that Christ founded. He gives a detailed discussion of the important theological and doctrinal beliefs Catholic and evangelicals hold in common, as well as the key doctrines that separate us, particularly the Eucharist, the Pope, and Mary.
“David Currie has written what may turn out to be the work on this nettlesome topic of Evangelicals being received into the Catholic Church. With great charity and lucidity, he pursues every conceivable topic – biblical, ecclesiological, theological, and historical – that arises in the discussions on this matter.”
-Thomas Howard, Author, Evangelical is Not Enough
“Currie has given us a work which is eminently intelligible, readable and personal. This book makes an especially happy marriage of the ‘head’ and the ‘heart’ in explaining the when, the why and the how of his pilgrimage. It should serve as a paradigm for the movement of ‘Everyman’ toward God and the Church His divine Son founded.”
-Rev. Peter M.J. Stravinskas, Editor, The Catholic Answer
“Currie’s book is a must read. Seldom is something so deep explained so clearly as Currie does in this wonderful work. Get it and get a copy for a friend.”
– Scott Hahn, Author, Rome Sweet Home
