Why I Became a Catholic (17010)

SKU: 17010
  • Henry, an Anglican clergyman, converted to Catholicism in 1850. He was followed into the Church by two brothers of his, Robert Isaac and William. All three owed their conversion to Newman's influence. The shock produced in England by Henry's conversion was enormous. Then and there the Church of England meant England, almost the entire British Empire. To leave it, and to leave it for Rome, bordered on treason. On hearing of rumors that he had not been honest with his parishioners while ministering to them, Henry decided to set matters straight. As he explains in this book, he became a Catholic in order to possess in their full logic and without any trace of error all the truths he had held and preached while an Anglican. The book ends on a truly dramatic note.
