  • Exchanging her worldview and eschatology for a different biblical perspective so late in life
  • Abandoning her lifelong reputation in evangelical leadership

NOT following the truth which she believed God led her to discover in the Catholic faith?

This is a book the author never dreamed of writing. It is an unexpected sequel to her 30th book, her autobiography, Czeching My Roots, which she thought was her final word and last book. God surprised her with an 11th hour journey into the joyous fullness of biblical faith she found in the Catholic Church.

ACCOMPANY Leona Choy through her attempts to "rescue" a friend who had become Catholic. STRUGGLE with her for 4 years of diligent biblical, and historical research and fervent prayer while trying not to become Catholic. REJOICE with her to finally be received into the one holy catholic and apostolic Church in 2005 and arrive at The Land of MORE.

What reviewers are saying

"This is an amazing book written with immense intelligence. The author has thoroughly scoured every possible question that might arise over the question of the Church. It is a vastly courageous and candid account: with remorseless self-scrutiny Leona has laid bare for us every single doubt, temptation, and fear that beleaguered her during her quest. I'd say it is in the drop-everything-and-read-it category."
Dr. Thomas Howard, convert, author, professor

"Leona presents in powerful prose the truths our Lord revealed to her late in life. She witnesses to God's hand on her life from infancy, guiding her steps and calling her to ever deeper commitment. Her years of service provided the basis from which she could discover the fullness of faith and the riches of grace in the Catholic Church."
Kimberly Hahn (Mrs. Scott Hahn), convert, author

"Leona's journey is a visceral, though joyous, rebellion against the idea that 'church' is a commodity or service one chooses--like a pair of slacks one can have tailored to one's specifications."
Dr. Francis J. Beckwith, Professor of Philosophy and Church-State Studies, convert and author

From the Publisher

"With great joy we publish this truly inspiring account of Leona Choy's journey to the Church. She covers all the bases, presenting in a concise yet fully readable apologetic format all the major issues that discourage Jesus-loving, Bible-believing Christians from considering the Catholic Church. Please, read this book prayerfully. If you love Jesus Christ and are willing to follow Him anywhere, you may find yourself on a journey you never dreamed."
Marcus C. Grodi, convert, founder of The Coming Home Network International
