A preacher kid s at a Catholic university, Kevin Lowry settled into a double major in beer and billiards soon followed by uncomfortable run-ins with pious students, failing grades, increasing anxiety, a missing night and the startling realization that some fellow students actually attended Mass the morning after a party instead of sleeping it off.
After getting kicked out, Kevin got his act together, got the MBA, and also got the girl. Meanwhile God was working, drawing him to the inevitable conclusion that Catholicism was all true despite his objections.
Kevin Lowry s journey to Catholicism is fascinating, often funny, and demonstrates God s unfailing, patient love for all of us.
“good arguments for why he became Catholic”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Devin Rose
This book hits just the right notes: engaging personal story, good arguments for why he became Catholic….highly recommended.
Lowry describes his unlikely conversion to the Catholic Faith. He really was someone you never would think could become Catholic, a good reminder that God can move anyone’s heart and we should always be inviting people to believe in the Gospel.
He reveals his ups and downs as a young man, in college and dropped out of college and back in college, sticking his toes in the waters of faith before quickly withdrawing them, meeting a young lady and being intrigued enough to darken the door of even a Catholic church to see what was inside.
Along the way he explains the arguments for why he became Catholic. It wasn’t just “following a girl” and wasn’t just a mental exercise. This book is a page-turner that is a real joy to read.
