Steve Ray’s conversion story is a moving account of a Baptist turned Catholic. You’ll learn how hostility towards the Church was overcome by a combination of serious Bible study and copious amounts of research into the writings of the early Church Fathers.
Steve Ray offers an in-depth treatment of baptism and the Eucharist in Scripture and the ancient Church, while narrating the story of his conversion. The book is replete with biblical and patristic quotations, pointing to other books and stories for further research.
Crossing the Tiber is a fantastic apologetics resource for anyone wanting to better understand the Catholic faith, and it offers a sound response to some of the most popular and persisting Protestant critiques against Catholicism. The last two parts of the book, “Baptism in the Scriptures and in the Ancient Church” and “The Eucharist in the Scripture and in the Ancient Church,”are chock-full of helpful historical analysis, but the first section is what really sets Crossing the Tiber apart—Steve and Janet’s compelling personal story is sure to resonate with readers everywhere.
Karl Keating, founder and president of Catholic Answers remarks,
“This is really three books in one that offers not only a compelling conversion story, but documented facts that are likely to cinch many other conversions.”
This volume is particularly useful in Verbum, where all of Steve’s footnotes and citations are linked to Bibles, Church documents, and other resources in your Verbum library.
