The last 25 years have been a very exciting time in the Catholic world, in terms of an increasing flow of converts. Dr. Scott Hahn, a former Presbyterian minister, was received into the Church at Easter 1986, and immediately started making a splash with his exciting conversion testimony. Meanwhile, Karl Keating began publishing "The Catholic Answers Newsletter" in August 1986. Thus, that year may be regarded as the starting-date of the current "Catholic apologetics / influx of converts revival" -- with Hahn and Keating as the two founding fathers. I tell my own conversion story in Part II of this book (75 pages). Part I is devoted to various analyses of the conversion process, while Part III consists of a collection of older conversion stories that have a timeless quality: highlighting reasons for becoming Catholic. This book provides (from many different angles and approaches) explanations of "how and why" men and women convert and become Catholics or return to the Catholic Church.
