Item Description...
Stephen LaPointe believed in Jesus. For him, the Bible was the only sufficient, firm foundation for his life. He wanted to obey God in all things, and had given up a career to become an ordained minister. He loved to preach the Word and knew that one day he would stand before God, accountable for everything he preached. But there was only one problem: How could he be certain that what he was preaching was true?

Publishers Description
For him, the Bible was the only sufficient, firm foundation for his life. He wanted to obey God in all things, and had given up a career to become an ordained minister. He loved to preach the Word and knew that one day he would stand before God, accountable for everything he preached. But there was one problem: How could he be certain that what he was preaching was true?

Sara LaPointe never wanted this role, but she loved Stephen. So, through his encouragement and tutelage, she had become both an enthusiastic Evangelical and an effective pastor's wife at least in the eyes of the congregation. But would the gnawing guilt of a past mistake a mistake she would never reveal to her husband ever let her go?

And then there was Walter. He, too, believed in Jesus. He, too, loved the Bible and vowed to do whatever God called him to do. But what if this was the unthinkable?

More About Marcus Grodi

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! I am a former Protestant minister. Like so many others who have trodden the path that leads to Rome by way of that country known as Protestantism, I never imagined I would one day convert to Catholicism. By temperament and training I?m more of a pastor than a scholar, so the story of my conversion to the Catholic Church may lack the technical details in which theologians traffic and in which some readers delight. But I hope I will accurately explain why I did what I did, and why I believe with all my heart that all Protestants should do likewise.

Marcus Grodi currently resides in Zanesville, in the state of Ohio. Marcus Grodi was born in 1952.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Why would a Protestant Minister become Catholic?  Apr 15, 2009
Posted April 15, 2009, 12:01 PM EST: If you want to understand why Protestants, and most importantly Protestant ministers, become Catholics, this is the book to read. Why would a successful minister go against all that he as stood for, sacrifice his reputation and financial stability to become a Catholic? Read this book and you'll learn much!!
Top-notch story-telling with insightful apologetic  Jan 2, 2009
Mr. Grodi proves himself a gifted story-teller in this fictional account of a Protestant minister who discovers what so many others have discovered before him, his teaching foundation and authority is made of sand. Intertwined in the primary plot are a collection of subplots with the intricacies of a Tom Clancy novel giving the growing intense drama leading to an inevitable climax that shocks and tugs at our emotions. Along the way we learn a great deal about why the Catholic tradition is the most solidly biblical tradition. And we discover the root issue of authority in heart-wrenching detail as we relate to the minister wishing to be certain he is teaching the truth. This is a great story and a great way to convey the truths of the faith that grips both the heart and the mind. An entertaining, insightful, apologetic tale of a heartfelt search for absolutes. A challenge to the relativism of the Protestant movement and a must read for anyone interested in the key distinctives of the Catholic tradition.
Intelligent Entertaining Catholic Fiction  Sep 3, 2007
I picked up this novel because I really enjoy the author's tv show The Journey Home on EWTN. I've been looking for intelligent intriguing Catholic fiction, and this is it. The characters are believable, and the topics in the book stimulate your mind and soul while remaining very entertaining. I couldn't put it down.

Suffering... fruit... negative reviews... mercy re. typos  Oct 31, 2005
The 12 reviews written prior to mine
are so complete and so reflect my
thoughts that it took a while to
think of something to add. Let me
share three:

1) Suffering... Years ago I gained
much from Peter Kreeft's "Making
Sense of Suffering," but somehow
that was amplified or confirmed in
the few pages where Father Bourquet
explains the Catholic view. Worth
the price of admission by itself.

2) Sweet spirit... Because I have
been involved in paradigm challenging
sales for 40 years (starting with
"word processing" years before it
even had that name), it has become
more than a hobby of mine to study
conversion literature both in
technical areas as well as religious.
As is common in Catholic apologetics
to audiences ranging from Protestants
to Pagans, from Atheists to Jews, or
from Mormons to Muslims, Grodi's
"How Firm a Foundation" has the sweet
fragrance of the "fruit of the Holy
Spirit." Hooray for love, joy, peace,
patience, kindness, goodness, faithful-
ness, gentleness and self-control!

3) No negative reviews yet ... Not a
single negative review has popped up yet.
Karl Keating's 1988 "Catholicism and
Fundamentalism" has had 17 years to attract
123 reviews, of which 9 are "one star."
Compare to this book's three years. Maybe
these will come as the book grows in
I find it instructive to note in
such negative reviews whether the above
listed gifts are evident or not. (Please
read them on Keating's book and come to
your own conclusions.)

Oh! On the issue of typos. I find them
so offensive that I fear I shall never
write a book for fear of a typo slipping
through. While they can be evidence of
poor scholarship, they are not proof,
so I'll give Marcus the mercy I'll want
someday for myslef.
Very good read.  Sep 12, 2005
Found the book engrossing from cover to cover. Interesting mix of theology and thriller. Fascinating look into difficulties of being a pastor, responsible for souls of his flock, and the issues of pleasing God and man. Highly recommended.
