For Protestants considering the Catholic Church, the journey across the Tiber River to Rome can be long and perilous, filled with many obstacles and detours. For Catholics who want to help them make the crossing, often it isn’t enough to give the right arguments, prooftexts, or book recommendations—you have to journey with them.
In Navigating the Tiber, Devin Rose (author of The Protestant’s Dilemma) draws from his own experience as a convert and Catholic apologist to help you guide your Protestant friends and family members on that harrowing river voyage. Not only does he equip you with the knowledge—from Scripture, the early Church, and Christian history—you’ll need to answer their questions and challenges, he shows you how to deal with the common aspects of a convert’s journey, including:
- The best subjects to talk about—and avoid—plus the right order to put them in
- The five biggest non-doctrinal problems that keep Protestants out of the Church
- What to do when their anti-Catholic friends pressure them
- Adapting your efforts to their particular Protestant tradition
- The importance of continual prayer and friendship, whether they convert or not
The river to Rome is unruly but crossable; read Navigating the Tiber and help your friends and family have smoother sailing on their way to Christ’s Church.
