Rome sweet home : our journey to Catholicism
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 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. Scott Hahn was a Presbyterian minister, the top student in his seminary class, a brilliant Scripture scholar, and militantly anti-Catholic 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 readers.

Sep 27, Jenn rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Catholics, Christians. I wasn't really sure that I'd like this book because there was a lot that I didn't think I'd relate to. After all, it's a book about a couple converting from the Protestant faith to Catholicism, and I came from an atheist background. Second, Dr. Hahn and his wife studied their way into the Church, and my conversion was anything but academic.
However, the Holy Spirit was so present in this book that, despite myself, I often found myself laughing out loud or on the verge of tears! And this is anyth I wasn't really sure that I'd like this book because there was a lot that I didn't think I'd relate to. And this is anything but typical for me!
The integrity that the Hahns show and the love that they have for Our Lord are inspiring. View all 3 comments. Jul 26, David S. I should mention that I read this from the perspective of a non Catholic at least currently. When I took a vacation to Rome the places which I constantly found to be the most impressive were not the big archeological sites like the Colosseum or the Forum, but instead it was the beautiful churches.
I have always attended plain Protestant churches and I was surprised at just how beautiful the inside of these buildings were, full of paintings of biblical events and statues of biblical figures and I should mention that I read this from the perspective of a non Catholic at least currently.
I have always attended plain Protestant churches and I was surprised at just how beautiful the inside of these buildings were, full of paintings of biblical events and statues of biblical figures and popes and according to one place the chains of Peter.
Being there lead me to an interest to find out more about Catholicism, and so I finally read this book which a guy from work kept recommending. This book did make me more interested in learning more though. View all 6 comments.
Nov 02, Yenny rated it it was amazing Shelves: Quoting the excerpt Scott Hahn shared on his fanpage, written by a girl named Bernadette: As someone born into the Catholic Church, it was cool and interesting to learn of and experience the journey taken by evangelical Protestants to come home to the very Church created by Christ.
Their journey was particularly intriguing Quoting the excerpt Scott Hahn shared on his fanpage, written by a girl named Bernadette: Their journey was particularly intriguing, though, because Scott was an anti-Catholic pastor, at first, and the way he came to find Truth was through his in-depth study of Scripture.
The true gift of His Church that God has blessed me with since I was born has really hit home through this book. I pray to God that I am never led away from this beautiful Church established by Jesus my Savior; the very Church that allows me to become a living tabernacle for my God when I receive Him in the flesh through Communion. What an awesome privilege! I can't describe my joy right now. Jesus, you rock!
I don't mind rereading it or share it to those in need of strength towards their Faith!
View 1 comment. Feb 22, Nicola Mansfield rated it it was amazing. Reason for Reading: Popular Catholic theologian Scott Hahn has written many books and I would like to read several of them. Before I started those, however, I thought I would start with this, his conversion story. What can I say? An absolutely, inspirational story of a very difficult, journey that Scott and his wife found themselves on that ended with them coming home to the Church.
Scott was a Presbyterian minister, self described as vehemently anti-Catholic, to the point where he didn Reason for Reading: Scott was a Presbyterian minister, self described as vehemently anti-Catholic, to the point where he didn't believe Catholics were even Christians and wouldn't go to Heaven.
His wife's feelings were not so strong.
She allowed Catholics a place in Heaven but was against everything she thought they taught. It was from this mindset that Scott Hahn delves deeper into his own personal Bible studies to find himself coming up with truths that echo Catholic beliefs.
Scott reaches out to many highly regarded professors, theologians and friends in the ministry for help to counter the Catholic beliefs that scripture is leading him towards, but none can adequately do so.
In fact, several of them end up on their own journeys to conversion! The book is a beautiful, inspiring and exciting read as the Catholic beliefs and doctrines are biblically explained with scripture. As a Catholic myself I found it wonderful to see Scott's light bulb moments, to see the truths of the Catholic Church come rushing forward when he and others looked at them with open hearts.
The first part of the book is hard to read as Scott pulls no punches in letting the reader know just how anti-Catholic he was but this serves to show how far he had to travel on his journey. The book also shows the wonderful devoted relationship through Christ he and his wife Kimberly share as he gets closer to conversion she pulls further away yet their marriage holds together even when others interfere with the suggestion of the "D"-word.
An amazing book and a must read for people in the process of conversion, any Catholic who hasn't already read it and for any Protestant who thinks Catholic faith is not based on scripture. Apr 05, Mary Grace Nakao rated it it was amazing. You dont have to be a convert to appreciate this book. Im a "cradle Catholic" and this book made me appreciate my faith more.
Also, although it is pretty shameful and hard to swallow but he is right about one thing: Catholics all over the world should really learn how to read the Bible by themselves and learn about Catholicism more. Although there are some bad fruit You dont have to be a convert to appreciate this book. Although there are some bad fruits in the bunch, it doesn't mean all fruits are bad as well. All in all, a great read!
If you find yourself in a slump, especially during Mass and Eucharist, this is a good book to start so you could appreciate the Holy Mass and Eucharist more: Jul 20, Amanda Tindall rated it really liked it.
What did I think? Well, I'm Catholic now. In reality though, while it is under one of the most repulsive titles for a protestant, he describes his journey to the Church in a way that Protestants might understand without the vocabulary that most Catholics use — he uses protestant terms to describe Catholic elements of faith.
That, I think, is what makes this so compelling, as well as his description of his earnest pursuit of truth. New favorite! It starts off like a fairy tale - boy meets girl. He wants to be a pastor, she wants to be a pastor's wife. They get married. But along the road, things get complicated. He gets involved in a huge, year-old mystery, which at its heart is a search for truth - and neither of them is really ready to deal with the truth he finds. This book is not based on a true story, it IS a true story!
Told alternatively from Scott Hahn's point of view and from his wife Kimberly's, this book pl New favorite! Told alternatively from Scott Hahn's point of view and from his wife Kimberly's, this book plunges you into the lives of these two amazing people. It was first a detective story, and then a romance - about these two people's love for each other, yes, but primarily about God's love for them.
I laughed, I cried, I learned. A great read. Feb 22, Lynne rated it it was amazing Shelves: I knew they had a happy ending because both they and their children made it into the Catholic Church many years ago but the book covered the whole process of their discovery of the fullness of Truth of the Catholic Church. First Kimberly made the discovery that the Church was correct about contraception this book was written in the early s by the way.
Then Scott questioned one tenet of Protestantism, sola fide, and for him, that started unraveling the whole ball of yarn. He fought his conversion every step of the way, at least in the beginning and Kimberly, while being a supportive wife, fought the idea and prayed and read books and prayed some more. Aug 16, Trisha rated it did not like it.
Hahn's book is a fascinating and heartbreaking read.
He at least makes clear the many differences that continue to divide Protestants and Catholics. Sproul reminds us, we are not together. Hahn says it perfectly when he declares that if the Catholic church is wrong, "it was nothing less than diabolical.
Knowing this, the Hahn's were still shocked and hurt when some of their Protestant friends did not accept their swim to the other side as a good and right th Hahn's book is a fascinating and heartbreaking read.
Knowing this, the Hahn's were still shocked and hurt when some of their Protestant friends did not accept their swim to the other side as a good and right thing.
Perhaps there wouldn't be as much fuss about it today, for our current ecumenical spirit seems to encourage such conversions, albeit unintentionally, perhaps, and while we might be troubled by a Protestant joining the Catholic or Orthodox Churces, we fail to grasp what a devastating abandoning of Truth has just occurred.
We used to call it apostasy. This book has been credited for the conversion of many Protestants to Catholicism, and I can see why. For this reason, it can be a dangerous read, like playing with fire.
The heart is an idol factory, and this could certainly be a defining read for that Protestant who just wants something "more". The Catholic Church stands ready, false gospel and all, to welcome such a person "home".
God help us. Apr 02, Melissa Rose rated it it was ok. This book was ridiculously frustrating. I was born and raised Catholic and decided to leave the Catholic Church in after being granted an annulment. I wanted to read this book to see if it could explain some of the things the Catholic Church practices which I found to be extremely hurtful and isolating. I have wanted answers for a long time. I guess I got some answers from this book, but the delivery was quite condescending.
It felt m This book was ridiculously frustrating. It felt more like they were justifying their reasons to join an elite club than anything else. The only reason I gave this book 2 stars was because the beginning was very engaging- but, as it progressed, it gained an air of superiority that was very disappointing. Good thing there were only a couple of pages left.
I admire the dedication of the Hahns to their faith, but they are very ignorant about how many Catholics are raised: The call to repentance was so clear, I wondered how several ex-Catholic friends had missed it when they said they had never been called to the gospel in the Catholic Church.
Apr 12, Christian D. Chockfull of quote worthy, highlight-worthy passages. A worthy companion piece to the works of Karl Keating and Patrick Madrid in providing the spiritual ammunition to defend one's Catholic faith against the non-stop and misguided accusations of so-called "Bible Christians. And it was the Catholics who could outdrink and outswear me before I became a Christian, so I knew how much help they needed.
Sola fide was unscriptural! Yet we only took communion four times a year. For us, then, it is a theological presupposition, our starting point rather than a proven conclusion.
So, one of the elements of worship our family has most appreciated at Franciscan University is the way people participate. With Bible in hand, plus lots of zeal, they do far more with less than many Catholics who have the fullness of Faith in the Church but who are famished and fast asleep. We share with them so much of the truth about Christ in Scripture; but what they lack is nothing less than the real and substantial presence of Christ in the Eucharist.
To state it simply, they study the menu while we enjoy the Meal! Mar 19, Tracy rated it liked it. I attended Catholic Mass with my parents this past weekend and was handed this book on the way out. They were passing out to all. My parents had already received a copy at another parish, but since I am no longer Catholic and attending mass regularly I had not so I took one. It tells the story of a Presbyterian minister and theology student and his wife who slowly convert to Catholocism.
They reveal that their study of scripture led them this way and away form Protestantism. This was an intere I attended Catholic Mass with my parents this past weekend and was handed this book on the way out.
This was an interesting read since I had recently left the Catholic church for a Methodist church. I found it ironic that many of the reasons that this couple was driven towards Catholicism were the reasons I was led away.
The Hahns are very devout and take scripture very literally so it interesting that they were eventually led towards Catholicism which is not a bible-based or as they put it "sola scriptura" religion.
I could totally understand their arguments put forth in the book supporting their conversion and I credit them for following their hearts and the call of the Holy Spirit. I could also relate to their struggles with their family and friends in taking this huge step of conversion.
I do not take the Bible as literally as the Hahns or other Evangelicals so their arguments did not affect me in a way that made me doubt my own decision to leave the Catholic Faith. I also firmly believe that God is o. He just wants them to be committed to their faith in him and to serve others in his name. I will say that one of the greatest joys there have been many in leaving Catholicism has been being introduced to Bible Study.
See a Problem?
I have learned more through 3 or 4 studies than I did from 12 years of Catholic schooling. The Hahns seem to be on a mission to bring more of a Bible Study tradition to the Catholic Church which I think is great. I agree with the Hahns that it would be great to see more emphasis on scripture study in the Catholic Faith. This is really a powerful tool in connecting people to their religion and spirituality.
Jan 14, S. Stevens rated it it was amazing. I own many of Scott Hahn's books and have listened to several of his talks, so I figured it was about time I read the conversion memoir he co-wrote with his wife Kimberly.
Hahn was raised in a nominally Protestant home and accepted Christ after spending most of his high school years as a juvenile delinquent. He turned his life around and went to seminary to become a Presbyterian pastor. It was there that he met and eventually married Kimberly, a daughter and sister of Presbyterian pastors who ha I own many of Scott Hahn's books and have listened to several of his talks, so I figured it was about time I read the conversion memoir he co-wrote with his wife Kimberly.
It was there that he met and eventually married Kimberly, a daughter and sister of Presbyterian pastors who had been a passionate follower of Jesus her whole life. Scott and Kimberly both had anti-Catholic leanings, out of sincere ignorance rather than malice.
Their conversion was the result of a gradual acceptance of various Catholic doctrines after years of intense study. This led to Scott's conversion and eventually Kimberly's. Kimberly's story ended up being more interesting to me than Scott's - my heart broke for her as her lifelong dream of being a pastor's wife was shattered, completely upending her entire life.
Poor Kimberly bore many heavy crosses for years, including not only a shaky marriage but also the loss of two unborn babies. I rejoiced for her and her family when she was finally able to accept all the Catholic Church's doctrines and receive the grace of communion and confirmation. Her witness was such an inspiration to me. Her quotations from the prayer journal she kept during those years convicted me to restart my own prayer journal.
Rome Sweet Home is more of a journey of faith rather than an apologetics manual. This is real life. I can't recommend this book highly enough to anyone who wants to know why on earth an up-and-coming Protestant pastor and his wife would give up everything to follow Jesus into the Catholic Church. Jan 10, Kristen rated it it was ok. I am a lifetime Protestant.
I also believe in the "church universal" and that all people of Christian faith should lift up each other in their walks through the world we navigate. I give this book 2 stars because I appreciated Scott's clear description of the theology he explored and how he came to terms with the Catholic interpretations of scripture.
I learned quite a bit about the history of God's covenants, Peter, the Host, and the theology of Mary; these things were very well explained. The I am a lifetime Protestant. The one thing I related to also, was the love and comfort of liturgy. Resite your own faith by learning what and who captivated the heart of this great saint.
I highly recommend it every chance I get! Scott Hahn presents the historical and biblical origins of the Sacrament of Penance Reconciliation.
He provides an important guide for new Catholics, a source of renewal for "old hands", and a challenge to all of us to deepen our relationship with Christ through regular use of the Sacrament of Penance.
This is an outstanding talk on Confession that cuts to the heart of this great Sacrament of Mercy. Gaitley describes the "second greatest story ever told" - a story that encompasses Divine Mercy, the life of St. The CD was very informative. Gaitley was very interesting, and I loved the presentation. It made me reflect about my love for Mary and for our beloved Pope John Paul. This is a CD that I will share. In this presentation, he shares his amazing conversion to Catholicism and explains why he is convinced it is the Church founded by Christ over years ago.
This is absolutely the one CD everyone should start with I will order many and give them to family and friends. Scott Hahn explains through his legendary testimony how he was militantly anti-Catholic but self-driven to seek the truth.
This ultimately led him into the Catholic Church.Jul 20, Amanda Tindall rated it really liked it. Jeff - New Lenox, IL. Rome Sweet Home: Readers Also Enjoyed. I can relate to the pain that one experiences when becoming Catholic means the loss of friends and the distancing of family members who oppose the faith. After Hahn attacked sola fide in his seminary classes in Virginia, one of the students challenged him to defend sola scriptura.
