The aim of this book is to summarise the lives of natable converts to Catholicism from Britain and Ireland and explain why they entered the Church. These reasons were many. Some looked chiefly at history and saw the apostolic Church to be residing in Catholicism. Others, though appreciating the fact of the gift of faith, saw reason as the chief support of the step they were taking. To yet others it was the endurance of both the Church and that remarkable office of the papacy that proved the necessary stimulus. Taken altogether these accounts provide a profound and moving witness to the operation of divine grace in human souls.
