Product Description After the tragic death of his father, Michael OShea travels from his native Philadelphia to rural Kentucky for the summer. In this land of tobacco farming, bluegrass music, and devout fundamentalist Christianity, he is compelled to explain and justify the Catholic faith. His only defense, the Bible. Join Michael on an Amish-style farmstead as he learns to milk a cow, harness a horse, disk a field, and harvest hay with a team instead of a tractor. Will he discover the truth about the papacy, the Eucharist, and devotion to Mary in Sacred Scripture? Review "Besides being an intriguing tale, it is an instant course in apologetics....It would be unfair to give the final outcome of this tale. Evil pits all its strength against Michael. Grace inspires and empowers him. Moments of suspense and horror lead up to a climax not devoid of subtle humor. We are left applauding the hero of the piece, wondering, and wishing for more." -- National Catholic Register, August 1...

He introduces us to the sublime joys found in a slower pace of life and the profound truths of the Christian faith found in the Bible." -- Matthew Pinto President, Envoy magazine -- Publisher Comments From the Back Cover Join Michael on an Amish-style farmstead as he learns to milk a cow, harness a horse, disk a field, and harvest hay with a team instead of a tractor. Will he discover the truth about the papacy, the Eucharist, and devotion to Mary in Sacred Scripture? "This improbable novel calms the spirit with the beauty of family life on a farm, and somehow - can't put my finger on it - beguiles you into identifying with the unlikely hero as he learns how to defend his Catholic faith in confrontation with Bible believers. Too bad apologetics isn't always this enjoyable - or seductive." Father Owen Kearns, LC Publisher, National Catholic Register "...A powerful defense of Catholic beliefs that acknowledges the deep love for Christ and thirst for truth among fundamentalist Christians." Marcus Grodi President, The Coming Home Network Host, "The Journey Home" on EWTN "From stickball played on the Philadelphia blacktop to working the tobacco fields of rural Kentucky, Kennedy takes us on a wonderful ride. He introduces us to the sublime joys found in a slower pace of life and the profound truths found in the Catholic faith. It's a fun read - enjoy it yourself, then pass it on!" Matthew Pinto President, Envoy magazine About the Author Martin Kennedy teaches economics at Western Kentucky University. He lives in rural Kentucky with his wife Nancy and their four children. This is his first novel.
