      Book Description
      Alex Jones was an "on-fire" Pentecostal minister in Detroit who was a
      completely dedicated shepherd of his flock. He greatly loved his people and they
      loved him. In seeking to give his flock the most genuine experience of the early
      Church prayer and worship services, he carefully read Scripture, the Fathers of
      the Church and writings of the early saints. The more he read, the more Alex
      came to the startling conclusion that the present day Catholic Church - and
      the Holy Mass - is the same exact "worship service " from the very early Church.
      Alex began to share his findings with his parish, and eventually Alex, and
      most of his parish, joined the Catholic Church. This is his incredible story of
      a black Pentecostal minister's challenging and dramatic spiritual journey, and
      the flock that followed him. Today he preaches with his usual passion about
      Christ - as a Catholic deacon! This book tells the story of Alex's life from
      his childhood all the way to his conversion to Catholicism in 2001. It
      simultaneously tells the story of his wife, Donna, and her spiritual journey as well,
      which shows how they were not always on the same path during Alex's preparation
      for entering the Catholic Church. Each had to be personally, deeply convinced
      that this momentous, life-changing and career-changing spiritual decision was
      God's will for them. Illustrated with numerous photos.
