Excellent excerpt, Carl. As a fellow convert, GKC's words ring true (don't they always?).

(bad timing, though---Chesterton's Vol 3 is out of stock, according to that Ignatius link)

I'd like to read more about your talk. Based on the article you posted the other day, I assume that one of the seven was Walker Percy. For some reason, I haven't gotten around to reading anythng by Mr. Percy, but after your article I am going to start with Signposts In A Strange Land and go on from there.

I'd like to hear more about that talk, too!

Carl E. Olson

Thanks, Scott and William. The talk begins with some remarks about the nature of conversion and the reality of the Communion of Saints. The seven people (or groups of people) include my parents, a dead Anglican poet, an Evangelical professor, a dead English journalist/apologist, a dead Southern novelist, an Apostolic Father, and a pope. Each of these are connected to key moments of conversion and intellectual/spiritual growth in my life.
