Publisher's Summary

The well-known and very popular Catholic couple, Scott and Kimberly Hahn, have been constantly travelling and speaking all over North America for the last few years about their conversion to the Catholic Church. Now, these two outstanding Catholic apologists tell in their own words about the incredible spiritual journey that led them to embrace Catholicism. 

Scott Hahn was a Presbyterian minister, the top student in his seminary class, a brilliant Scripture scholar, and militantly anti-Catholic...until he reluctantly began to discover that his enemy had all the right answers. Kimberly, also a top-notch theology student in the seminary, is the daughter of a well-known Protestant minister, and went through a tremendous dark night of the soul after Scott converted to Catholicism. Their conversion story and love for the Church has captured the hearts and minds of thousands of lukewarm Catholics and brought them back into an active participation in the Church. They have also influenced countless conversions to Catholicism among their friends and others who have heard their powerful testimony. 

Written with simplicity, charity, grace and wit, the Hahns' deep love and knowledge of Christ and of scripture is evident and contagious throughout their story. Their love of truth and of neighbor is equally evident, and their theological focus on the great importance of the family, both biological and spiritual, will be a source of inspiration for all listeners.

Please learn how to read…

The reader’s voice is excellent. Regardless, the reading is rife with grossly mispronounced words. Examples, Seton becomes set on, monstrance becomes mon e strance, The Thessalonians become the theologians, Duquesne becomes Dunesk, or dunk, papist becomes paptist, Tiber becomes timber, I Timothy becomes eye Timothy. Pitiful, seriously

Rough Narration but good book

I struggled to get through this one because of the narrative voice only. The content was good, but some words were mispronounced and her voice was hard to distinguish between Scott or Kimberly.

Amazing book, terrible narration

What a wonderful story of conversion from Scott and Kimberly Hahn. I just wish the narration was half as good as the book itself. Admittedly, some of words are not vernacular, however, I found myself consistently cringing from how badly the narrator was butchering the language and names in the book. Regardless of the poor production, it is still worth a listen, and definitely worth a read.

Where did the editor go?!

Oh my goodness, there are errors
(major errors) in the narrator’s diction, pronunciation, parts where she repeats herself and you can hear an outtake and on and on. It almost seems as if there was no producer nor editor who listened to this for corrections and mistakes. Just the first take she did on her own was good to go.
I have never heard a book where the narrator messes up every few minutes before. It’s quite exceptional in it errors.

Of course though, the story of the holy conversion of Dr. and Mrs. Hahn will cut you right to the heart. Their story is straight from God. No amount of narrator goofiness can stop that from coming through. Praise be to God.

The narrator misses a lot

The book itself is a wonderful story of the Hahns' conversion from Protestantism to Catholicism. The narrator mispronounces words constantly, I would expect better diction from a 7th grade reader. The whole thing should be re-produced with a new narrator.

A Must Read for Converts to Catholic Faith

I loved this book because it echoed my own story in coming to the Christian Faith. This book is for anyone has felt the call to follow Christ, and has felt the stinging pain of isolation from others on your path to truth.

Don’t get this audio book

The book was fine itself. If you’re familiar with Dr Hahn it repeats some but is still interesting. This particular version/narrator is awful though. Common words mispronounced and awkward reading overall especially toward the end.

Incredible story

This is a fascinating story of people who say they are Bible Christians and take the Bible for the actual word of God. They did not conform the Bible to their beliefs but conformed their life to what they were learning in the Bible.
They do their best to do what ever God is calling them to do and are willing to sacrifice almost anything. Kimberely‘s story is extremely moving and her openness in describing her pain and suffering was gripping and gut wrenching.

My only criticism is the narrator did not seem to have read the original book and did not pronounce a lot of words correctly.

Incredible story, but narration difficult to listen to!

Really loved hearing the Hahns’ story, but I found myself cringing throughout the narration due to a ridiculous amount of mispronunciations which detracted from my understanding of the text at times. Anyone who narrates a book should absolutely take the time to make sure they know how to read what’s written correctly!

guide for my wife

excellent story, I had heard of this book. I'm a cradle catholic, but my wife came into the church 2 yrs ago but still struggles with some of the catholic traditions, Mary, saints etc...she listened to this and could relate to Kimberly Hahn in so many ways. excellent book for new converts or cradle catholics to fall in love with our faith and want to learn more.
