This book contains the conversion stories of men and women who, as a result of thier surrender to Jesus Christ, heard a call to follow Him more completely. Many of them were Protestant pastors, or missionaries. Others were laymen who, though working in secular jobs, took their calling to serve Christ in the world very seriously. These men and women all discovered Jesus Christ in some branch of Protestantism, yet in each case, their desire to follow Christ faithfully, and to remain faithful to the truth He taught and the Church he established through His apostles, led them to consider the claims of the Catholic Church.

In Journeys Home, Dick Monteith has created an authentic and heartfelt story of three South Carolina boys who grew up together in a small town in the Low country. It follows the trajectory of each as they go off to different colleges, pursue different passions, and end up having very different lives. One becomes a wealthy realtor, another a progressive politician and a third eventually becomes a liberal Presbyterian minister. The novel is in part about how the boys’ lives were shaped by Vietnam, the civil rights struggle, the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy, and more. Yet this isn’t a history book. It’s a story that we can’t help getting caught up in. It’s a novel full of embodied, well-delineated characters who not only are a product of the times, but who go about the business of being themselves, making good choices and bad. As I read this novel, I found myself caring more and more about these boys and what happened to them and their families. Time and time again my heart went out to them. In the end, what more can we ask of a writer? Tommy Hays Creative Writing Professor, UNC-Asheville and author of The Pleasure Was Mine and In the Family Way

These fascinating reunion stories include: --Mason, the white terrier who crawled home on two broken legs to what remained of his family's tornado-ravaged house --Buca, who sat on a hill over Utah's Rte. I-15 for two months waiting for the car he knew would bring him home --Eddie, the beagle, who walked 450 miles over four months to reunite with disabled four-year-old Jimmy, inspiring the boy to work harder on his own recovery. Four-Legged Miracles will tug on readers' heartstrings, but it will also discuss common reasons dogs disappear, how to get a missing dog back faster, the dog-human bond, and the science behind some of the amazing journeys these dogs endure. Chock-full of happy endings, Four-Legged Miracles lends insight into dogs' hearts and minds, and is a treat for any animal lover.

This book is a story about an adventurous and mystical journey inspired by my immersion in a foreign culture on a six month assignment in the Orient with an unexpected secret destination...awakening to the true essence of life and divine love. Disillusioned with society's standards for success and happiness, personal life challenges, and a desire to express my gifts and talents to the world, I welcomed this life-changing journey. Obsession with the past and excessive concern about the future often disengaged me from the present moment with a desire to search for some transcendent meaning in life. The geographic change, integration within a multi-ethnic and multi-religious culture, and a new lifestyle enabled me to engage in more passionate and intimate expressions of life. Experiencing the charitable spirit of the culture, marveling at the mysteries and wonders of the land, communing with nature, and engaging in cultural rituals stirred my heart and awakened me to the beauty of life and a peace beyond understanding. It enabled me to build self-confidence, trust, and experience unconditional love. Being faraway from home, the realization of the true meaning of home became more profound with the revelation of a meaningful gift revealed at the end of the journey. The book highlights the "spectrum of love" in the 1880 classic, "The Greatest Thing in the World" by Henry Drummond including patience, kindness, generosity, humility, courtesy, unselfishness, good temper, guilessness and sincerity. These ingredients laid the foundation for transcending culture and language, a renewed sense of self, conscious living, and a heightened awareness of divine love.
