Overview

The rich traditions of the Catholic Church were etched firmly into the lives of Eric and Marilyn Shuster. He led liturgical music for the church and she was a former Franciscan nun with a degree in Catholic theology. They hadn't thought of leaving their beloved Catholicism, but everything changed when they moved next door to a Mormon family and learned about a form of Christianity they had never considered.

After a year of miraculous experiences and challenging theological study, Eric and Marilyn were baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1989. While they were excited about this new transition, they wondered what would come of their deep Catholic roots. In the nearly two decades that followed, they grafted into those roots the doctrines and principles of the restored gospel, resulting in a spiritual harvest for them and their family.

This is the story of their conversion, as told by Eric, along with a respectful and enlightening comparison of 40 key doctrines between Catholicism and Mormonism that testified to them of the restoration of the gospel. Find yourself touched, challenged, and educated as you share Eric and Marilyn's journey from Catholic roots to Mormon harvest.

    "A Comparison of the Two Religions"

    The Shusters were raised Catholic-very Catholic. Ms. Shuster became a nun. She has a degree in Catholicism. Then, they moved and met their new Mormon neighbors. Now, they are actively Mormon.
    To say that they are educated in the scriptures, Mormonism, and Catholicism is an understatement. They take each topic and analyze the two religions' beliefs. As you can guess, rarely do the two share a common belief.
    I have always been interested in different religions. I have read quite a bit about the Catholic religion and the Church of Latter Day Saints. This is the first book I have seen that compares the two. I am Protestant, and I am still not moved to join either of these churches. However, it is an interesting read. Sociology students, religion students, Catholics, and Mormons need to read this.

    Despite their credentials these authors are greatly misinformed

    Despite their credentials these authors are greatly misinformed about the Catholic faith. The book is replete with distorted truths, half truths and outrihgt untruths about the Catholic faith. And there is no such thing as "a degree in Catholicism" Very biased book
