The eleven stories of Conversions to the Catholic Church collected in Surprised by Truth are unlike any you've ever read - they're packed with biblical, theological, and historical proofs for Catholicism, with a forward by former Protestant minister Scott Hahn.  Each year thousands of atheists, Evangelicals, Fundamentalists, and Pentecostals are being surprised by Catholic truth - and these converts tell you why.

The converts whose stories are told in Surprised by Truth include:

  • Paul Thigpen
  • Tim Staples
  • Marcus Grodi
  • James Akin
  • Steve Wood
  • Bob Sungenis
  • Julie Swenson
  • Rick Conason
  • T. L. Frazier
  • Dave Armstrong
  • Al Kresta

"These converts, coming from varied backgrounds, converged on the Catholic faith because their intellects were enlightened by divine grace to accept its truth. . . . In Surprised by Truth they bring apologetics to life in an exciting way."     

                                                 Fr. Peter M.J. Stravinskas, author of the Bible and the Mass


"I'm privileged to know personally several contributors to Surprised by Truth.  Each is deeply committed to Jesus christ; each relentlessly sought him and was amazed at where he found him."          Fr. Mitch Pacwa, author of Catholics and the New Age


"Surprised by Truth's eleven stories of conversion merge into a sustained argument for the truth of the Catholic faith.  The converts' anxieties, doubts, reasons, and affirmations are reported candidly--nothing is held back."   Karl Keating, author


"The apostles preached the Catholic faith regardless of the cost.  These converts have accepted that faith--in each case at a great cost.  What they learned is distilled in Surprised by Truth, a masterpiece of Catholic aplogetics."   Archbishop Charles Chaput, OFM Cap.


"Conversion involves many starnd of theological and personal struggles.  Surprised by Truth weaves those strands into a tapestry of great beauty."  Kimberly Hahn
