David Currie creció en una familia cristiana devota en la que su padre era predicador fundamentalista y, junto a su madre, era también profesor del Instituto Bíblico Moody (Moody Bible Institute). Toda la formación de Currie estaba inmersa en la vida del protestantismo fundamentalista–profesores de teología, presidentes de seminarios protestantes y fundadores de agencias misioneras evangélicas eran invitados frecuentes en su casa. Currie mismo recibió un título de Trinity International University y obtuvo una maestría en teología (Master of Divinity) en Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.
Escribió este libro con el fin de explicar a sus amigos y familiares fundamentalistas y evangélicos el por qué se hizo católico romano. Currie presenta una descripción clara, sistemática y comprensible de las razones de su conversión a la Iglesia que Cristo fundó. Ofrece un debate detallado de las creencias teológicas y doctrinales que católicos y evangélicos mantienen en común, así como también de aquellas doctrinas clave que los separan, particularmente la Eucaristía, el Papa y María.
David Currie was raised in a devout Christian family whose father was a fundamentalist preacher and both parents teachers at Moody Bible Institute. Currie's whole upbringing was immersed in the life of fundamentalist Protestantism...theology professors, seminary presidents, and founders of evangelical mission agencies were frequent guests at his family dinner table. Currie received a degree from Trinity International University and studied in the Masters of Divinity program.
This book was written as an explanation to his fundamentalist and evangelical friends and family about why he became Catholic. Currie presents a very lucid, systematic, and intelligible account of the reasons for his conversion to the ancient Church that Christ founded. He gives a detailed discussion of the important theological and doctrinal beliefs Catholics and evangelicals hold in common, as well as the key doctrines that separate us, particularly the Eucharist, the Pope, and Mary.

Jason Evert, conferencista y autor católico, nos presenta los cinco grandes amores del Papa San Juan Pablo II. Nos comparte historias sobre la vida de este santo, contadas por los que conocieron. Prepárate para conocer cosas que no sabías sobre este santo hombre de Dios que, entre otras cosas, promovió la devoción a la Divina Misericordia y la Consagración Mariana, ayudó a derrocar el comunismo en Europa, articuló lo que hoy se conoce como la Teología del Cuerpo y se hizo amigo de los jóvenes como ningún otro Papa lo había hecho.
Para muchos Católicos, la confesión es solo un medio para alcanzar un fin: lavarnos del pecado para poder recibir la Comunión. Sin embargo, como nos dice el Papa Francisco, la confesión es mucho más que “ir a la lavandería.” Es “un encuentro con Jesús que nos espera como somos.”
En 7 Secretos de la Confesión, el autor de gran éxito de ventas, Vinny Flynn, explora las verdades “ocultas” de ese encuentro con Cristo, presentando lo que para muchos será un modo nuevo de acercarse a la confesión, e invitándote a iniciar un apasionante camino personal de sanación y santidad.
Si aún no ansias la confesión de la misma manera que ansias la Comunión, lee este libro. Cambiará tu vida.
For too many Catholics, Confession is just a means to an end: cleaning us up from sin so we can receive Communion. But, as Pope Francis tells us, Confession is much more than "going to the dry cleaner." It's "an encounter with Jesus, who waits for us as we are."
Vinny Flynn, author of the best-seller, 7 Secrets of the Eucharist (100,000 copies sold), presents a similar approach to the Sacrament of Confession in this new book that reveals 7 key "secrets" or hidden truths about the great spiritual beauty, power and depth of Confession.
If you do not yet look forward to going to Confession with the same eagerness and expectation with which you receive Holy Communion, this book is for you. It will be a whole new way of going to Confession, inviting you to begin an exciting personal journey to healing and holiness. It may change your life.
This book is also available in English.

A wedding ring is something very special, and we normally wear it at all times because it signifies the most important things in our lives. It symbolizes our marriage relationship, our family, our children, our home, and the blessings of God, as well as many other things. Fr. Ángel asks: “How can such a small object— a ring—signify something so great: love and fidelity?”
In these pages, he offers us the answer. With a simple approach to the marital commitment, and using the visible appearance of the wedding ring, Fr. Ángel teaches us about the profound plan that God has for marriage. In his unique style, he brings us from tears to laughter, oftentimes on the same page, to remind us that, like the ring, marriage is forever.
