Author, apologist and founder of the lay apostolate Catholics Come Home, Tom Peterson provides a mixture of personal anecdotes and case histories in entertaining fashion in his new book. He begins by tracing his own Christian walk and the ways the Holy Spirit worked in his life once he let God direct his steps.
Rather than being dull and dry, I found his inspiring book entertaining and humorous to the point of being laugh-out-loud funny at times. Peterson packs a lot of wisdom in this little book. Each chapter concludes with a short summary of thoughts to reflect on. Besides laying out a plan for personal holiness, Peterson also provides tips and encouragement to those who are reluctant to take those first steps toward evangelization plus an appendix chock full of resources. I highly recommend it.
