More about The Conversion of Scott Hahn
Few people know the remarkable story of how "The Conversion of Scott Hahn" came into existence. A Catholic organization in California publishes an excellent magazine called This Rock. A woman from the Midwest ordered a gift subscription for a relative who lived in Pennsylvania. Apparently, the relative never received her magazines, so someone at the magazine looked into the matter. It turned out that the address on the gift subscription had the right town and street, but the wrong street number.
When the magazine staffer called the man who had been accidentally receiving This Rock, the man mentioned that although he didn't know why he had been receiving it, the magazine had been a big help during his conversion to Catholicism. The "accidental" subscriber's story was so impressive that he was invited to California to share his story.
The man's name was Scott Hahn, and that's how he came to have his conversion story recorded for the first time. No one could have anticipated the impact this one talk would have on Catholic culture in North America and beyond. It has electrified countless souls around the world, and it will have an impact on you, too.
Scott Hahn became the first in a landslide of Protestant ministers who have since converted to Catholicism. It is just as fresh and just as jolting as the day it was recorded.
And even if you're a Christian who has a negative outlook on the Catholic Church, don't be afraid to give it a listen. Scott knows how to speak in a way that you can understand. Perhaps you will never consider becoming a Catholic, but at least you'll finally be able to comprehend why someone who knows and loves the Bible would convert to Catholicism.
