Yes, this is that book you’ve been hearing about. Surprised by Truth, Patrick’s Madrid’s first book, is a powerful collection of 11 testimonies of former Evangelical Protestants who converted to the Catholic Church. These deeply personal conversion accounts are unlike any you’ve ever read. They’re packed with biblical, theological, and historical proofs for Catholicism. Each year, many thousands of atheists, Evangelicals, Mormons, Fundamentalists, Pentecostals, and other non-Catholics are being surprised by Catholic truth, and these converts tell you why. In his foreword, Dr. Scott Hahn described his reaction to Surprised by Truth, saying, “While reading each of these incredible journeys I laughed, cried, grunted affirmations, and basically relived my own journey into the Catholic Church. I heard echoes of my own struggles in their words. I relived the anguish I experienced on that lonely and sometimes frightening path of conversion, and I relived the deep, abiding joy of coming home. But enough. Read these stories. They’re prayerful, heavy-on-doctrine, evangelical, scriptural witnesses of people who discovered that what they had once thought was the most ‘unbiblical’ church is really the Church of the Bible.
