Peter Kreeft's conversion story

Maybe you have to be a convert yourself to be a sucker for conversion stories, but there are some I've always enjoyed hearing or reading. Peter Kreeft's is one of them.

I agree! I never tire of hearing conversion stories, still in the process of my own. I can identify with Peter Kreeft especially, having had the same background. Please pray for me.

Will do. It's never easy for one who takes his pre-Catholic faith seriously. Peter Kreeft told me once that when he broke the news of his Catholic conversion to his father, his father pulled out a butcher knife from the kitchen drawer and handed it to him, saying: "Here, stick this in my chest." It's that visceral an issue in some families and communities. Thankfully, Kreeft says that he and his father mended fences in his later life and became fast friends again.
