Canadian Converts is the first collection of conversion stories in Canadian literature. Eleven contemporary Canadians relate the stories of their conversion to the Roman Catholic Church in brief, yet intimate and vivid self-portraits. From very diverse religious and social backgrounds those men and women trace their paths to Rome through a secular environment of indifference or hostility. Their courage is a testimony to the liberating power and unchanging attraction of the truth.
