Century Of Catholic Converts
Lorene Hanley Duquin
These are the conversions that made history.
For most of the last hundred years, know-it-alls have been predicting the end of the Catholic Church and, indeed, all organized religion. Meanwhile, a steady stream of conversions has brought the best minds of recent history into the Church.
Why did they convert? Why do countless thousands still convert every year? Lorene Duquin was away from the Church for many years, but she set out to answer that question when she was writing the biography of one of those converts. The answers she found led her back into the Church herself.
In these fascinating and often inspiring stories you'll find how the historical context influences conversions, how other people help the convert along the way, and how Catholicism has inspired so many great minds. Then you'll see how each of these converts has, in turn, brought something uniquely valuable into the Church.
