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 readers.
"One of the beautiful and bright-shining stars in the firmament of hope for our desperate days is this couple, the Hahns, and this story of their life and their conversion."
— Peter Kreeft, Author, Back to Virtue
"Dynamic, fresh, and devoted are terms which describe the approach that Scott and Kimberly Hahn take to assist in the renewal of the Church in the United States. Now, with their conversion, they are admirably suited to assist Catholics in re-discovering the treasure that has been entrusted to them. My hope is that many people will benefit from contact with Scott and Kimberly Hahn through their stories of conversion."
— Most Reverend John Myers, Bishop of Peoria
"No book in the last 50 years has helped more people into the Catholic Church than Rome Sweet Home. When converts name resources that guided their conversion, this book is almost always mentioned--and often first. It's still the best book for Protestants inquiring into the Catholic Church, and equally helpful for their spouses. Thirty years after its release, Rome Sweet Home is unquestionably the Catholic classic of our time."
-- Brandon Vogt, founder of ClaritasU, Senior Publishing Director at Word on Fire
“Over the last few decades tens of thousands of Protestants have discovered the beauty and truth of the Catholic Church. It is almost certain that, if you ask them what helped open their eyes to the fullness of truth, a great percentage of them will tell you it was Scott and Kimberly‘s book “Rome, Sweet Home.“ This easy-to-read book is still as meaningful now as it was thirty years ago when it was first written. “
-- Steve Ray
“So many great initiatives, apostolates, and conversions began with this book. When future historians try to understand the Church in the United States in our lifetime, they’ll return again and again to the pages of Rome Sweet Home. Like millions of other readers (and listeners), I experienced the Hahns’ story — way back when — as an answer to prayers.”
-- Mike Aquilina, general editor, Reclaiming Catholic History series
"Before I converted to Catholicism I read Rome Sweet Home in a 24-hour period. I couldn't put the book down and it was one of the instrumental texts in my conversion. It's a wonderful book to give to any Protestant that is open to exploring the truths of the Catholic faith."
-- Trent Horn, author, Why We're Catholic: Our Reasons for Faith, Hope, and Love
“Since the first edition of Rome Sweet Home, thousands of people have joined Scott & Kimberly’s journey into the Church. Rome Sweet Home gives an inside glimpse into Catholic theology as well as the ups and downs of relationships in the midst of the conversion process. Rome Sweet Home provides answers to common questions for those seeking to be united with the Catholic Church. This book will continue to be a life-changer.”
-- Jeff Cavins, Creator, the Great Adventure Bible Studies
“God invites each of us to ask, seek, and knock. As devout Protestants, Scott and Kimberly could never have imagined that this pursuit of truth would lead them to enter the Roman Catholic Church. As the Hahn’s experienced, many outside the Church do not recognize just how deeply biblical the Catholic Church is in her teaching and liturgy. At the same time many inside the Church do not appreciate just how devoted the Church is to the Word of God. This book tells the remarkable story of how a Bible-believing couple came home to the Catholic Church. And fruits of this story have helped many in the Church to rediscover the splendor of God’s Word.”
-- Dr. Tim Gray, President, Augustine Institute
"In the 30 years since the book’s publication, Scott and Kimberly Hahn's Rome Sweet Home has inspired thousands of people to come to the Catholic Church. God willing, over the next 30 years it will bring thousands more back home to Rome.”
-- Dr. Edward Sri, author of The Art of Living: The Cardinal Virtues and the Freedom to Love.
