Christ in His Fullness

by Bruce Sullivan

Christ in His Fullness details the journey of Bruce Sullivan, who was a Church of Christ minister for seven years before entering the Catholic Church.

Journeys Home

edited by Marcus Grodi

Journeys Home contains the stories of men and women who, having surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ, heard a call to follow Him more completely. Many of them were pastors or missionaries. Others were lay men and women who, though working in secular jobs, took their calling to serve Christ in the world very seriously. In each case, their desire to follow Christ faithfully, and to remain faithful to the truth He taught and the Church He established through His apostles, led them to embrace the Catholic Church.
