Overview

I was lost and radically confused. Young? Yes. Happy and full of hope? Not even.
—From Chapter One

In twenty-one thought-provoking testimonies, young Catholics talk about their search for truth in a world increasingly free of values and lasting peace. Some hit rock bottom; some wandered in confusion, searching for meaning in all the wrong places; some were Christians looking for something more. All found joy and new life in Jesus Christ and his Catholic Church.

I Choose God is a personal glimpse into the vibrant faith of today's Catholic youth that will encourage young and old alike.

"I strongly recommend this book to all who are interested in the spiritual journeys of today's youth and to all who seek inspiration for their own spiritual journey."—Scott Hahn, author, A Father Who Keeps His Promises

"An impressive array of faithful young Catholics has contributed to this honest and heartfelt collection of conversion stories. In their triumphs and tragedies, struggles and epiphanies, we see glimpses of the new springtime of faith unfolding in the church and in the hearts of young adults across America."—Colleen Carroll Campbell, author, The New Faithful: Why Young Adults Are Embracing Christian Orthodoxy

"The raw honesty of the testimonies is exactly what this generation needs but is sorely lacking in the media, some classrooms and on most campuses…a great read for any young adult Catholic…"—Mark Hart, executive vice president, Life Teen International, and author, Blessed Are the Bored in Spirit
