 Confessions of a Mega Church Pastor” – (How I Discovered the Hidden Treasures of the Catholic Church) – Allen Hunt

This book was written by a former Methodist Pastor of a large mega Methodist church of 15,000 people in Alpharetta, Georgia.  Allen Hunt tells his story of how he became a convert to Catholicism through very personal stories that he mentions in this book through the analogy of rooms in an old house to elaborate on the treasures of the Catholic Church beginning with the house itself and ultimately after visiting all the rooms in the home, ends on the front porch.  It is beautifully written and really does speak of the beauty and fullness of all the church has to offer.  Allen has been featured on EWTN’s Journey Home with Marcus Grodi.  This book can be ordered through for a nominal fee.





Rediscover Catholicism” – (A Spiritual Guide to Living with Passion & Purpose) - Matthew Kelly

Matthew Kelly wrote this book with the objective of all Catholic Churches having a copy for their parishioners to read because it is his contention the church is going through tough times in America.  He wants to revitalize the faith communities of the Catholic Churches with discussions on Living an Authentic Life, What is God’s dream for your life?, Do the saints have anything to offer you?, Is Jesus still relevant?, and Can the ancient traditions of Catholicism help us deal with the modern challenges of our lives?.  Every chapter is a page turner and his discussions are very relevant to today’s world.  His chapters on The Seven Pillars of Catholic Spirituality give the reader thoughts on confession, prayer, the Mass, the bible, spiritual reading, fasting and the rosary.  Matthew Kelly is a born Catholic, and “has dedicated his life to helping people and organizations to become the best versions of themselves”.  He is a well-known speaker and author of other books.  His website is  This book can be purchased through his website for a nominal fee.





Rome Sweet Home” – Scott & Kimberly Hahn (Former Presbyterian Pastor)

This is a must read for anyone contemplating becoming Catholic.  It is a book that is hard to put down once you begin reading the first page.  It emphasizes the struggles it takes to become Catholic leaving behind years of a life in the Protestant faith.  It also speaks of the struggles of a marriage in the throes of disarray due to the conversion of Scott to the Catholic faith before Kimberly.  As Cardinal John J. O’Conner said “A moving story of faith and a reminder that the truths of the Catholic Church – especially Humanae Vitae – continue to speak to hearts that are open.





I’m Not Being Fed!”  Discovering the Food that Satisfies the Soul – Jeff Cavins (Former Protestant Pastor)

This book is written by a Catholic, who had left the church in his early twenties because as most of us who left did, felt the church was not a “nourishing” faith.  As noted on the jacket “Jeff Cavins explores the reasons why many Catholics do not seem to understand and appreciate the Holy Eucharist – and why some have even left the Church, saying that they simply weren’t being “fed” and that they longed for a more personal, “spiritually nourishing” relationship with Jesus”.  Cavins human interest stories and humor make this book once to have on a shelf for future reference.





While You Were Gone” – Fr. William J. Bausch

This is a “Handbook for Returning Catholics and those thinking about it”.  This book will explain the changes that have taken place within the church since Vatican II.  It is an easy read and will provide one with “what is different in the Church today, as well as how and why these changes came about”.  It reminds the reader of what the church once was taking them through Vatican II and some of the future issues facing the church.





The Catholic Response” – Very Reverend Peter M.J. Stravinskas, Ph.D., S.T.D.

This book is more of an apologetic type of book for those struggling with how to answer and defend the faith to those who have misconceptions of Catholic beliefs or doctrines of the Church.  This book was written in response to the negative Fundamentalist messages publically being spoken against the Catholic Church with emphasis on a response to letters written by Jimmy Swaggert to his “Catholic Friends”. It is an easy read and will provide the Catholic with proper ways to answer the sometimes difficult questions or comments one may be exposed to from well-meaning Protestant encounters.





Thoughts for the Journey HomeMarcus C. Grodi (Former Presbyterian Pastor)

Marcus Grodi is a well-known author and lecturer and appears on the EWTN with the Coming Home Network.  This book is a collection of his essays on his journey of faith which is described as “personal struggles with doubt, anxiety about the future, vocational guidance, and problems that may arise in relationships with loved ones”.  He addresses both “intellectual issues” of the Catholic faith as well as “spiritual issues involving Marian devotion” as well as other topics of a sacramental nature.  This book is also easy to read, spoken from his heart and will inspire those contemplating either a return to the Faith or converting from another denomination.





The Privilege of Being Catholic”, by Father Oscar Lukefahr, C.M.

This book is an overview of what Catholics believe and as the back cover says: "With reverence for Tradition and Scripture, Father Lukefahr explains what the sacramental principle is, how it is based on the Incarnation of Jesus Christ, and how this unique perspective makes the Catholic faith distinct among faiths." At the end of each chapter are questions for discussion and then a reflection indicating this book could be used in a group setting or easily done individually as well. It is easy to read and empowers one with the ability to be able to explain the Catholic faith to those who might be thinking of becoming Catholic.
