Published by Ave Maria Press

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.

“Sometimes you hear someone share their story and you get the
sense that they are pioneers, scouts, groundbreakers . . . blazing
a trail that a lot of people will hike on after they are long gone.
Chris Haw is one of those trailblazers.”
Shane Claiborne
Author of 
The Irresistible Revolution
“Because of Chris Haw’s beautiful prose,
From Willow Creek toSacred Heart
reminded me of Thomas Howard’s
Christ the Tiger
.Because of Haw’s lucid line of thought, it reminded me of G. K.
Chesterton’s
Orthodoxy
. But the book offers today’s readers unique
gifts as well, because Chris feels the peculiar challenges of thepresent moment. He proclaims a catholic faith (big or small ‘C’)that is simultaneously rooted in history and engaged with our
gritty, conicted, often supercial, and yet profoundly question
-ing world.”
Brian McLaren
Author of 
Why Did Jesus, Moses, the Buddha, and Mohammed Cross the Road?
“This book is really excellent, and reveals the maturity that seems
to be showing itself in so many of our churches today. It is an
ideal example of ‘non-dual thinking,’the contemplative mind that
can see ‘beyond the shadow and the disguise’ of things. Beforereturning to the Catholic Church, Chris Haw did courageouslyfrom the outside what so many of us cradle Catholics seldom
do—but need to do—from the inside.”
