)-- “Confessions of a Born-Again Catholic” is well-documented without being overwhelming, scholarly without being difficult, and honest and down to earth rather than high and mighty. If you are interested in the Bible, spirituality or the Catholic faith and its scriptural basis, check it out at the author’s website, www.bornanewcatholic.com.
Author Daniel Wiegand was born into a good Catholic family in 1946 and grew up in the pre-Vatican II Church. He followed the rules and traditions, said all the Catholic prayers, went to Catechism, received the sacraments and even spent two years in a Catholic seminary. But something was lacking. That something was a personal relationship with Christ.
Wiegand went on to college and eventually law school where his faith was challenged by other philosophies and beliefs. A conversation with a relative about Jesus forced him to confront his questions and doubts about Catholicism and Christianity. For the first time in his life he studied the Bible. The deeper he went, the more proof he discovered that Jesus was and is our Messiah, Lord and Savior. He also rediscovered a Catholic faith that is rich in symbolism, beauty, theology, and history, and is deeply scriptural. He was transformed into a born-again, Bible believing, Spirit filled Catholic Christian.
In the 30-plus years since that time, Wiegand has continued to grow in his love and enthusiasm for the Catholic faith, and he conveys those sentiments in this book.
Supported with more than 600 scripture references and quotations the attorney-author literally “makes the case” for Roman Catholicism. In addition to presenting the author’s testimony, the book contains chapters on the Catholic view of salvation, Catholic Church history-century by century, the Eucharist, the Mass, Traditions, the role of Mary, the Angels and Saints; the Catholic Bible, the Charismatic Renewal and what God has to say about Unity in the Body of Christ. With the Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur, this book is definitely written from a Catholic perspective. But as Dr. Frans Brandt says in his foreword, “it will be a blessing to Catholics and non-Catholics alike.”
