Crossing the Tiber – Pt 4

The Treasures from Within

…continued from Crossing the Tiber – Pt3

It occurred to me after reading a heartfelt testimony from a titan among Catholic converts, Peter Kreeft, that I should not expect folks to rely merely on my experience and thoughts on the matter of ‘crossing the Tiber’. The stacks of books and blogs and articles and testimonies I have read (and continue to read) are a treasure-trove of wisdom and insight into a whole host of topics critical to a thorough review of Catholicism and fair a consideration thereof. So it is fitting that I share them with you. Put on your swim trunks and dive in. The water is warm and deep.
