A Faraway Ancient Country
Lulu.com, 2007 M08 7 - 216 pages
What happens when a Protestant Fundamentalist becomes a Roman Catholic? Share one woman's journey into the land of mystics and scholars, and learn Catholicism from a Biblical perspective using the King James 1611 Bible. Employing humanity, humor and wit, this marriage of creative and analytical writing is also the fruition of four years of research, 80 sources, 190 Biblical passages, and the efforts of three theologians, each with a Master's Degree in Divinity. Readers experience Catholicism through songs, prayers, poetry, and descriptions of celebrations as well as face the bigotry and malice often directed at Catholics. A Faraway Ancient Country offers an intimate look at faith and challenges spiritual growth.
