Synopsis

In From Willow Creek to Sacred Heart: Rekindling My Love for Catholicism the bestselling coauthor of Jesus for President, Chris Haw, chronicles his spiritual journey through evangelical Christianity and his return to Catholicism. Haw provides a respectful and engaging look at the megachurch movement and a heartfelt expression of love for the Catholic Church’s liturgy and its commitment to the poor.
In the spirit of Merton’s Seven Storey Mountain and Dorothy Day’s The Long Loneliness, Chris Haw’s From Willow Creek to Sacred Heart recounts the journey of a young Christian seeking a personal relationship with Christ within the context of a faith community committed to love, justice, and solidarity with the poor. Haw’s journey spans contemporary American Christianity—from a nominal Catholic background to megachurch Evangelicalism, to a new monastic community, and then back to Catholicism after an intense spiritual experience on Good Friday.
Haw’s story and style will appeal to Catholics who champion the Church’s social teachings, those drawn to monastic practices and living in intentional community, and those seeking solidarity with the poor and marginalized.
