No Price Too High
Alex Jones was an "on-fire" Pentecostal minister in Detroit and a dedicated shepherd of his flock. In seeking to give his beloved flock the most genuine experience of the early Church prayer and worship services, he carefully read Scripture, the Fathers of the Church and writings of the early saints. The more he read, the more Alex came to the startling conclusion that the present day Catholic Church - and the Holy Mass - is the same exact "worship service" from the very early Church.
Alex began to share his findings with his parish, and eventually Alex, and most of his parish, joined the Catholic Church. This is his encredible story of a black Pentecostal minister's challenging and dramatic spiritual journey, and the flock that followed him. Today he preaches with his usual passion about Christ - as a Catholic deacon!
Covering Alex's life from his childhoos all the way to his conversion to Catholicism in 2001, No Price Too High simultaneously tells the story of his wife, Donna, and her spiritual journey as well. Each had to be personally, deeply convinced that this momentous, life-changing and career-changing spiritual decision was God's will for them.
Illustrated with numerous photos.
"I loved Alex and Donna Jones from the time I met them. Diane Hanson's swift and streaming narrative of their conversion is a 'baptism' in joy, overflowing with apologetic and cultural insight. As Alex labors to lead his Pentecostal congregation into the Catholic Church we witness the sweet surprise of truth, the painful parting of brothers and a delayed but glorious welcome home." -Al Kresta, President of Ave Maria Radio, Host of "Kresta in the Afternoon"
