Return to Rome

My Amazon review of Francis Beckwith’s “Return to Rome”. Excerpt:
As a former Evangelical who converted to Catholicism over 15 years ago, I was eagerly anticipating Dr. Beckwith’s book. I was especially intrigued that he continues to consider himself both Evangelical and Catholic, designations I’ve retained as well. Then when I saw that two former professors of mine – Dr. Edwin Yamauchi, a prominent Evangelical, and Dr. Scott Hahn, a prominent Catholic convert – had both endorsed this book, I knew I had to read it as soon as possible.
It is a testament to Dr. Beckwith that his conversion is actually a great ecumenical moment – too often prominent conversions turn into moments of triumphialism or attacks. Dr. Beckwith’s deep love for his Evangelical roots is so apparent that even those who disagree with his move seem to appeciate his sincerity.
