There are Catholics and non-Catholics alike who take it as truth that the Catholic Church is no place for a self-respecting, intelligent woman.
Authors Jennifer Ferrara and Patricia Sodano Ireland disagree. Both were ordained Lutheran Ministers. Both became Roman Catholics. Women in Search of Truth tells their stories -- and the stories of more than a dozen other educated, articulate, accomplished women who found fulfillment in the Church.
While the contributors to this book come from a wide variety of religious, ethnic, socioeconomic, and professional backgrounds, these firsthand accounts share a common theme. All experienced a sense of restlessness and profound feelings of unfulfillment, until they finally came to rest in the bosom of the Church.
Time and again, it was the Church's clear and uncompromising stance on the sanctity of human life that first attracted a woman's attention, and then captured her heart.
