From the Back Cover
This collection of testimonies by nine former atheists who found new life in the Catholic Church is one of the most helpful tools for cultivating the faith ever crafted! Here you'll meet:
- The atheistic Jew who sparked the conversion of a fellow atheist, and led him into the priesthood.
- The Nietzsche-loving bodybuilder whose atheism was upended by St. Thomas Aquinas.
- The hardened, anti-Catholic, neo-Nazi convict who shed his vices and became a celebrated Catholic author.
- The commune-dwelling hippie socialist who is now a happy Catholic husband and father.
- The once militant, gay atheist who is now "Christ's willing captive."
And other prominent members of our Church who, in our generation, have escaped the swamp of atheistic relativism and embraced Holy Mother Church!
Dramatic and thought-provoking, these intensely personal stories refute virtually every atheistic objection to God while explaining the arguments and events that eventually led them into the Catholic Church.
Here you'll encounter proofs for the faith that will confirm your own faith and help you explain it to others, including to atheists. Read and learn:
- The irrefutable testimony of conscience.
- Proof that faith is not blind.
- The facts that baffle evolutionists.
- The overwhelming failures of materialism.
- Proof that the Church herself is a miracle.
- Why consideration of the Big Bang leads to the conversion of so many souls.
- How both Mary and the male priesthood are not arguments against the Church, but evidence of her holiness.
- How in all critical areas, the Catholic position is logical, historical, and definitive.
- Plus scores of other arguments to pry even stubborn souls away from their atheism and show them the beauty of our Faith.

And this is what you find in this book--examples of God's mysterious work through the Holy Spirit, who comes quietly like the dewfall. For the most part, they were not even aware of it at the time.
I wondered when reading the book if giving it to a nonbeliever (atheist or agnostic, or whatever) would help convert them. You never know how people will respond to the work of God. Thus, I hesitate to judge what impact the book will have on atheists who may read it. Who knows with the work of Grace? Stranger things have happened, and continue to happen.
One commonality in these nine accounts is that the atheists/agnostics had people in their lives who showed them kindness, care, and attentiveness, and who lived so authentically that they were a witness to the Truth without really trying or being aware. When we ourselves are more fully human and alive, we become very appealing to others and may be witnesses to them even when we don't know that is happening. At least that has been my personal experience. For example, years ago when as a young teacher (although not an atheist), another teacher I worked with had such an appealing personality, intellect and spiritual life that her example led me to an encounter with Jesus and helped me to return to a more lively practice of the faith when I was quite lukewarm.
I highly recommend this book.
