Atheist to Catholic-Stories of Conversion
I'd been waiting for this book to come out, so when I saw it on the reviews list, I jumped for it! (It's been awhile since I got it, please forgive my tardiness). I knew that Jennifer Fulwiler had an essay in it (I heard of the book through her blog) but I didn't realize that the Raving Theist (fka Raving Atheist) was included. I had read RT's blog a few times prior to his conversion, and then of course, afterwards. I also spoke to him briefly in private. He never did go much in to detail, and I'm said to see he's no longer blogging, but I was definitely eager to hear more of his story.
The book is short and sweet (116 pages) and a very quick read. As different as each story was, I also very much enjoyed noting the common threads in each. I love conversion stories in general, and of course, atheist conversions in particular.
