An exhilarating conversion story of a devout Baptist who relates how he overcame his hostility to the Catholic Church by a combination of serious Bible study and vast research of the writings of the early Church Fathers. In addition to a moving account of their conversion that caused Ray and his wife to cross the Tiber to Rome, he offers an in-depth treatment of Baptism and the Eucharist in Scripture and the ancient Church. Thoroughly documented with hundreds of footnotes, this contains perhaps the most complete compilation of biblical and patristic quotations and commentary available on Baptism and the Eucharist, as well as a detailed analysis of Sola Scriptura and Tradition.

Wow this book is an eye opener for all christian religions and even other religions. Ray uses simple truth, Scripture and historical fact to back up his beliefs. How can someone who believes In Christ not come home to the True Church, the Catholic Church after reading this?! This book is not boring, its enlightening!!

Stephen Ray's story of his conversion to the Catholic faith was informative as it was inspiring. You could almost feel like you were sitting in a room listening to him speak. Then after he completes his conversion story he provides some excellent background on the Eucharist and Baptism. The ffotnotes he provides as nearly as wondrful as the book itself. This is a must read for every Catholic! Cradle or Convert!

I found this book so interesting and easy to read. It is a letter to his parents as to why he decided to become Catholic. This would be helpful to anyone seeking truth. Mr. Ray is so careful about referencing everything he says -even the references were wrote in a way that is fun to read. I'm so glad I bought this book because it is one I will read again & again.

I was very fortunate to have Steve Ray send me a free, signed, copy of his book "Crossing the Tiber." Mr. Ray is very honest and somewhat humorous in his writings. "Crossing the Tiber" is a must-read book for anyone who is seriously interested in the truth about several Catholic Doctrines. Unlike anti-Catholics, Steve Ray shows the weaknesses of Protestant Doctrines in a very mature and civilized manner and refrains from the sophomoric tactics anti-Catholic Protestants writers succumb to. Mr. Ray is for sure to be the next Karl Keating.
