Radical Reinvention: An Unlikely Return to the Roman Catholic Church
by Kaya Oakes
(256 pages, $15.95, paperback)
How and why and when stragglers slog their solitary path to the Church of Rome is a fascinating topic. Some, like me, become convinced of the validity of the ecclesial claims Rome asserts. Others come in following a traumatic life event. Still others turn up at a parish church because of a genuine curiosity as to just what goes on inside those doors. Fortunately, the Church is immense, capacious enough to handle all who come, whoever they are and whatever their motive. Kaya Oakes is a middle-aged Californian who teaches writing courses at the University of California at Berkeley. Radical Reinvention: An Unlikely Return to the Roman Catholic Church is her conversion story.
