I want to put this question, which I received via e-mail, out there to you readers. I edited it a little.
I have been reading your blog as a "lurker" for some months now and give thanks regularly for your service through it. I realize that you receive many, many emails and other contacts, and that you may not be able to respond but I thought to give it a try anyway.
To be honest, I am troubled. I am Anglican, but over the past few years have become increasingly agitated by where the Episcopal Church is pointing itself. [… Lots of personal stuff here… ]
Over the past several years as this has progressed, I have sensed a call to move toward the Roman Church, but I want to be sure that I am not just going "from" something, but "to" the Roman Church. I have a general sense of the doctrinal, theological, and governance differences between our two Churches, but want to make sure I really understand.
Is there a book or series of books you can recommend? I am currently working through a Catholic Study Bible, and the Navarre Bible Gospels. I have added occassional use of LOTH to supplement my Daily Office (I should probably say "almost-Daily Office"). Where else can I go to understand?
Any time you might have to respond to this request would be greatly appreciated.
It seems to me that some of you out there may have made this journey yourselves. You could help this fellow.
